this is beautiful. :DANCE: and IMO looks as close as your going to get to G1 cosmos :BOT: . i will be getting this ASAP. i wish they could have made "hench" look more like g1 brawn. like i said before i'll stick with ROTF firetrap as brawn and ROTF beachcomber for now. still need a decent scout sized gears, wheelie and huffer!

my mini-bot army... so far

bumblebee -classics deluxe class
cliffjumper -classics deluxe class
brawn -"stand in" ROTF scout class Firetrap
beachcomber -ROTF scout class
windcharger -reveal the shield scout class
outback -"stand-in" reveal the shield deluxe class fallback.... same damn character
warpath -classics deluxe class

....and then there is voyager class seaspary who looks very nice but is so much taller than all the others... ohh well i'd rather him be bigger and better detailed than undersized like the two 3rd party "sprays" we already got.
All hail Lord Megatron!

You people all like this? All of you, seriously?

Mugatu says: "I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!!!" LOL

Whatever, I'm pulling for I-Gear in general so I'm glad they'll make some dough on this thing but it's not for me. I don't like the design....why does a robot (spiritually gifted with a "spark" or not) need a clear helmut/dome? Just to look like an astronaut? I get it, the tacky 50's, 60's UFO alt mode was enough, you don't have to go all Billy Mumy on this thing like some prop from "Lost in Space". And those arms? Dreadful...I mean, change the color scheme to orange and off-white and you'd have an aborted Unicron fetus from his 80's prototype. I guess the fact that this thing will sell just goes to show that it takes all types to make up the world. 8-}

1) everyone is entitled to like whatever they want, we do not all have to agree with each other but at least respect each other.
2) If you catch crap (really bad)then please pm me said posts so I can deal with whomever is giving you grief
3) Agreeing with everyone is so important? Hell I like the fact that I do NOT agree with most..

After seeing the proto pix I dig him.. He will lok nice next to igear Huffer and Seaspray..

Size increase? Looks like it'll be the same size as Rager and Spray, at $15-$18 each. They're all part of the same "MW" (Mini-Warrior) line.

We also welcome the proposal of the height of them, thanks.

I can't comment on their credit card security as I use PayPal whenever available, but when it comes to iGear products the only reason to not go direct to them is if you have loyalty to a particular retailer. Place a pre-order with them and you'll get your stuff cheaper than anywhere else, quicker than anyone else and their free shipping also applies to the UK.

I've placed three orders with iGear in the past and this guy will certainly be the fourth (or fifth if Hench is listed first).

Yeah, I did miss that. I welcome the size increase, but I hope the price doesn't increase much. The price point was one of the appealing things about Rage and Spray. It's rare to be able to buy a quality 3rd-party figure for less than $20, especially shipped.

I totally agree, but I'm hoping that iGear will realize that part and that was what really appealed to a lot of collectors was the price point. But the one reason I didn't buy them was because of the size. I don't really collect Legend class, but will do scout class. I can see this maxing out at $30, but I'm really want to buy this for no more then $25. We will see soon though.
