hmmm....

They have to be close. I'm hoping that they made it late August for pad room, and really the date is sooner....

So the release date for these is still 8/31 as of right now according to the iGear site. I'm seriously hoping they actually make it this time as I am really looking forward to getting these in. The more I look at the pics of them the happier I am that I pre-ordered them, even if it has been a bit of a wait.

I'll be very surprised. I struggle to think of a major third party product that has met it's release date. Not that many of them give release dates in the first place. Wonder why?

I have a feeling they are close though...if it gets delayed, I bet is only a week or two.....

I was really hoping that since they did pretty well with the releases for MW-01 and MW-02 that these would also go pretty smoothly. Now I am beginning to wonder if these are even going to get released this year.

I'm not so worried about Hench being delayed, but I was really hoping that they would have met the original June/July release date, because that would have meant we might have seen Cogz get released before the end of the year...

I'm thinking the that the chance of Cogz getting released before the end of the year is slim to nil now, which is a little bit of a bummer....

I had almost forgotten about Cogz... its been awhile since they released any info on him hasn't it? I know I absolutely want to get him also. These mini-bots have all just been spot on so far.

the Ironhide and Ratchet toys had a thingy with pictures of the upcoming...unless the world ends first...Not So Mini Any More Warriors. Cogz was among them.

Back in '07 or so I repainted the blue Crankcase version of the Cybertron Red Alert mold and it fits perfectly. I've had people think it was an actual Classics Trailbreaker they had somehow missed! The altmode, visor, tool hand, shoulder guns, all of it just screams Trailbreaker so much that Hasbro had to have notice and passed on the idea.

Here a very old pic:

I wonder what happened to iGear. For a time it seemed like they were picking up speed, but it's been delay after delay with them.

The mini warriors have been delayed due to the issues that they had with the PP05s.

iGear removed the release date on these and just listed them as preorder. That's them saying "hell, we don't know when we can get them out."

I don't know why iGear even bothers posting release dates. They haven't hit one yet! At this point, preorders are more like becoming a tiny investor in the company and they'll trade back you later with a figure maybe.

Wow, perplexing. We've seen final figures and also packaging. What is the delay?

Only thing I can think off is a last minute change perhaps? Fix that Cosmos head maybe?
