TFC Toys Iron Army Promo Images

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.

I think they could have made a bunch of these when PCC were in their heyday. There's two sets I'd be down for: the Protectobots and the Dinobots.

Sure, the Dinobots wouldn't have Grimlock as the center and you have one extra spot (provided you don't want Grimmy as a mere limb ... Paddles maybe?). On the other had it'd be a great, cheap way to get us some Classics Dinobots and we can just ignore the combining feature if we wanted to go that route.

The Protectobots are almost a no brainer to me since there's so little competition. Just add in a couple replacement heads for the Hot Spot and you're good. I was never a big Defensor guy; they didn't sell him like they sold all the other original combiners, so if they made limbs for the Protectobot set I'd definately pick him up.

I just got these guys in today, and they aren't half bad. They are a bit bigger than I expected them to be, so that was a nice surprise. I do wish that he would have come with a rifle for combined mode. The plane's weapons combine, but it just doesn't look very good. If you have PRiD Arcee, her gun makes for a decent rifle for him.

I was never able to find a decent size comparison before, so now that I have it I figure I might as well give you all one. Hopefully it's helpful to anyone thinking about getting these.

thanks for the info matt, good to know these are shipping (oh so many 3rd party products, and official ones often too, miss their estimated arrival dates by a looooooong time)

any chance you could pop them limbs on the desert camo version of the mold so I can see how it looks, since that's the only one I have?

Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

thanks, Matt! This looks plenty decent. Will probably wait til I get paid at the end of this month, but am looking forward to getting these guys and hope that TFC make more.

Finally got mine from BBTS and I'm glad I did, even if only for the tanks as they are a decent size and great little bots. Well done TFC, I'm impressed.

Got mine and am also impressed. Good vehicle and robot modes and they are a metric ton better than the drone limbs. SO much more stable and better looking.
