I've had these on pre-order since day one, and I love the Mold's and the accessories and everything. But the colors are glaringly bland. Much more unappealing is the lack of details, for the money I'd expect just more detail, not so much plain red.

I'd rather have more paint app's then accessories.


I always found their alt modes boring. It's hard to get around the fact that the alt modes and paint schemes don't possess as much detail compared to other figures and they're not that interesting (if you stay true to the G1 version). I feel they did a pretty good job adding detail to the bot modes such as the forearms, legs, and abdomen (which is more noticeable on Ratchet).

The thing I am most worried about is QC. I don't want to have parts falling off, breaking, or not fitting together. But then again, that didn't stop the Ark playset from selling out.

I agree with what you said, I just don't agree with a 129$ price tag.
If these were $89.99, I'd be willing to accept it and purchase both.
but this is 40$ more then MP Sideswipe, which is a high quality licensed product. This is a unknown quality and a questionable success rate with iGear product. Maybe after a few reviews, but still.. 130$.. it's too much IMO

I got the iGear MiniWarrior Rager aka Huffer and he's really nice, quality wise. Also have the Kup heads which were spot on, but yeah, this is a whole other level. Still, I remain positive.

I have both of these pre-ordered at BBTS. I am on the fence whether or not to delete the pre-order and wait for the reviews and risk these selling out. Or, keep them and hope there aren't any defects.

So keep the order and keep them in your POL till the reviews are in. If they aren't to your liking, cancel the order for store credit...

What is the BBTS cancellation policy?
Products may be cancelled within 15 days of product purchase. This date is based on each individual product's purchase date, not the date of order placement or payment. No cancellations will be acepted after 15 days of the product purchase. This policy applies only to items that have not yet shipped.

By the time they drop in your POL at BBTS, there should be plenty of reviews by two weeks later.

Thanks. I have been shopping there for a few years and never knew about the cancellation or policies. I appreciate it.

Only available items that have been in the POL... is what I'm talking about...

Hi -----, I have canceled those items from your POL and you have been refunded in store credit. In the future, there is a fee to cancel any items older than 15 days from a POL.

I think we're calling it dosh these days...or so I'm told. The one nice thing about pre-ordering these bastards a year ago, I had the 'dosh' to do it then. Not so sure I could swing it now. Just gotta cross my fingers I don't have to deal with iGear's wonderful customer service.

you're well behind the times. It's "Wongaaa!" now.

Smart move on ordering them early, I suppose. I wanted to wait to see the colours, and now I don't know if I can afford them.
