iGear have posted the first prototype images of their upcoming Mini Warrior MW-04 UFO. The Cosmos tribute figure comes with a blaster and sports a tiny space helmet similar to the one seen in recent IDW comics.

Love it. Especially the glass dome over his head - it fits so perfectly.

The dome's a little thinner than it was in the render, but it's still good, it's still good, just hope he can turn his head. :oops:

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.

Oh I'm liking this guy. Kind of glad I didn't win that Custom Cosmos Auction on ebay a few weeks back.

You people all like this? All of you, seriously? I catch crap left and right on these forums for being too loyal to Generation One, and then this...this...THING comes out and I'm thinking finally something G1 that I actually DON'T like, I can finally agree with everyone...but NOPE I start to scroll down the comments and everybody seems to be short stroking it over this thing.
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-}

With or without the helmet I still find this figure better than what hasbro provided the consumer....Sure I will get this one! :ic$:

What's not to like? - It's G1 Cosmos (who as a toy was always a ridiculous little pile that made about as much sense as a transforming banana anyway) done right for the Classics age. Buying. Twice.

Get the pre-orders up IGear......

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..

Nice, I'm definitely looking forward to this one. Looks like a good scout class as well. I'm hoping for a $20-$25 price range with the size increase for a 3rd party product.

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.

About the MW-03 Hench and MW-04 UFO, we plan to make them about 12CM≈4.7 inches, slightly higher than the other two released MiniWarriors, and the height of the rest Miniwarriors unreleased will be different too, depend on their scales in the G1 cartoon, will between 8CM to 12CM(3.1 to 4.7inches). We also welcome the proposal of the height of them, thanks.

Very nice, I'm liking this build. I just hope you can turn the head despite the dome.

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.
