When they had the second Stand River Event where they announced a bunch of kits, they also held a discussion booth talking about the upcoming model kits, and their release schedule. So far that schedule has been underestimated by a month or so (Gunner est. Oct 2019 (Released Nov), Wild Liger for Jun-Jul (Released Aug). It also estimated Fang Tiger for later in 2020, Gilraptor for 2021, and Rev Raptor very roughly estimated for at least 2 years out (so probably late 2021, but 2022 is a safer bet). Keeping in mind though that these are rough estimations made a year ago, and a lot can happen between now and the dates noted. I'd expect possible delays given everything going on. Koto is already announcing a lot of product delays from other franchises.
(To clarify, this was a no-photography-allowed discussion booth, so there was no official announcement regarding that schedule. Attendees of the event reported what transpired during the discussion, and someone on Discord who was also at the event confirmed most of those dates)
I'll definitely be buying a Rev Raptor when it comes out, though. Just gonna be a bit of a wait until then~

This prototype was also shown at Stand River! It was a wobbly boy, did NOT want to cooperate with the dude, but it's a prototype so the final will probably be much more secure. Even if not, it was the hinge joints, so super easy fixes. Glad to see it'll also be getting a Pilebunker CP release accompanying it, so you can build those variants.

Looks great, it's just too bad it probably won't be able to stand up on its own with those tiny feet, hence the action base... we'll see. Still pretty excited for this one, and I hope it means we'll still get pre-Wild HMMs in the future.
I'm really critical of a lot of HMMs but this looks fantastic. It seems like Koto is great at fixing parts of old designs that are kind of clumsy or poorly-thought-out, but it tends to put unnecessary changes on other ones that were just fine
