PP05P Patrol Specialist (LE 500)

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about unlicensed and knock off TF products.

So does this mean it comes with the damn stripes or decals ? Im not happy about that stripe, might cancel.


I'm thinking it means the yellow stripe stays. It's really not noticeable in bot mode (especially if you ignore the directions and fold the side panels in back), but at least having the hands and legs molded in different colors that we saw in the original pic gave the figure some appreciable variance. Yeah, I have an expensive dilemma now.

I wonder if we'll see another production run of Weapon Specialist, since he seems to be sold out most places. It really is worth the extra $20 to get all those neat weapons.

Big choice to make. I dont want an MP Ironhide, I want a beefed up classics Tote to go with my other oversized Micromasters. Not having some new paint scheme is kinda crappy in my opinion. can somebody post the original render before they made this announcement ? It should have never been removed, the new pic should have just been added on.

Thanks. I think the red thighs and arms really make a big difference. If Igear doesnt rethink this decision, Ill cancel my pre-order. I think Igear feels that more people want an Ironhide without all the extra weapons they might never use than a tote. The extra head just seems to be a bonus to sell a few leftovers. Bad decision not to go with a repaint.

I cancelled my pre order when I found out that it wasn't a repaint. I had wanted to put him with my other classics Micromasters on steroids (Countdown,Hothouse,Flak) But the colors aint right it's still too Ironhide even with the new head.

Still not able to drop my pre-order. Maybe he'll be the guy that holds more of Ironhide/Ratchet's weapons cache for me, I really don't know where he fits in my collection but I still want it.

Really would have made sense if they had released a black Ironhide, with all the weapons.
