As a newbie, i can say that i know pretty much next to nothing about the Coneheads. I think their newer figures (HFTD and Generations) have looked more or less clumsy to me. I do kind of like these, though.

:shock: wow, even if these are knockoffs you have to admit that these are some of the most impressive representation of the conheads we've seen. Granted I do own Igear's mini-masterpiece (oxymoron) Optimus Prime and even though the quality is not on par with that of FansProjects, it is still a good looking figure and fits well with the Classics/Generation toys. I am really looking forward to a Mini-MP Megatron. I however will pass on these due to the high price, it is non Has-Tak Sanctioned (not that it has stopped me before...but I rather own it if it is originaly), and the one question that is plaguing me is...what if Has-Tak decides to release the coneheads (c'mon Has-Tak, you have the mold...just tweak the damn thing, these guys are profiting where you guys are fumbling the damn ball!), seeing that Igear could "get away" with releasing a mini-MP Prime, how will Igear justify these figures seeing that they may be about the same size as the regular sized MP seekers :-?

I have received my PP01-Faith leader today from I-Gear. Have to open the box yet though! But judging it from the outside, it looks great. Quality-wise I will soon find out, but I'm not a bit worried there.

At this rate these 3-rd party's are going, they might as well take the Franchise over one day from the hands of Takara / Hasbro!

They are at least faster with the release of (mini) Masterpieces than TakaraTomy.

I really want to preorder the three pack, but I have reservations. Price isn't the issue. I figured they would be right aroung a hundred bucks a piece, but the shipping alone will be another $108.00! My concern is Takara doing official releases. As great as these look I would prefer official versions, and I can't imagine them not modifying their existing molds to create the coneheads. It seems like a no-brainer. On the other hand I don't want to miss out on these on the off chance Takara never does a release. In addition to that iGear requires you to pay up front for preorders, so once you're in, you're in.

Far better looking than Hasbro/Takara's seeker figures.

I'm in the same boat as you dude. I'd hate to get these and then they get an official release, probably for a better price too.

Does anyone have pics of Faith Leader posed next to any of the official Seekers?

Not EXACTLY posed how I would want them, but this thread gives you a good idea.

These look really good IMHO but I'm not very fond of the heads themselves. The fact they are shorter than the rest of the seekers is what really kills it for me though :(

Yes, iGear does on the page for the first run Faith Leader. You can see the pictures here (click additional images): http://shop.igeartoys.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=52. There is also a picture of him next to MP Grimlock.

Waiting on the 2nd Faith Leader to arrive. I will judge the quality then. I kinda want the white Faith Leader if they release the Ultra Magnus armor. I really want these but I don't think I can afford everything.

Thanks for the pics. These are actually the same size as the official MP Seekers according to their site and the various pics seems to confirm it. I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the three pack, so I'm going to have a complete set of MP Seekers one way or another.

Oh wow, I just noticed the $108 for shipping. That is crazy, $36 a piece for shipping is twice what they charged for Faith Leader.

The coneheads are seekers (starscream's body type) that have cones on their head. They are not as fast as regular seekers, but stronger and more durable.
