I am so happy that iGear is actually giving us what fans have always wanted, MP Seekers.
Wow, I sure hope they make a MP scale Grimlock or Hot Rod next, because those would be totally sweet and HasTak arent making thems.
Finally, you've seen the light! You're totally right man, HasTak isn't going to make seekers as great as these. They'll keep churning out repaints of their cruddy seeker mold. Haven't even seen a Hasbro release of Thundercracker yet:( I think you're close with your idea of releasing Grimlock, maybe if they upscaled him though. Now you're talking! Hotrod/Rodimus Prime, wasn't a huge fan of the mold, I'm sure they would be able to make it better though.

Does anyone have any iGear figures? Is the quality comparable to Hasbro's?
I only have their Kup head which is good, but I mostly hear horror stories when it comes to their MP KOs.
I've said from the jump, these products are good quality. But please, please don't take my word for it. Ask peaugh. Ask your colleague El Duque. I remember listening to the podcast he sat in on, I rejoiced when he said outright that if you didn't know they weren't official, you would believe they are legit. Everything about them works. The mods are significant and they even give nods to their inspiration (collaborator) Wheeljack, with a molded WJ face on the inner thigh. The mods to the main body are cleverly and professionally designed. The joints are stiff but not too stiff, paint apps are great, and they come with a heap of stickers to decorate your seeker with. It's a shame that you don't have one for yourself, all you can do is let others tell you what to think about these figures. And remember, we're discussing the seekers here. Save your hatred of Crystal Leader for a different thread when you reply.
