They compare both of their minibots to the Legends class Optimus Prime on their site.

I love the prices on the minibots ($15 preorder), but not thrilled about the Ironhide/Ratchet prices ($110 preorder, $120 afterwards).

For that price, I've purchased their "Masterpiece" figures, which are much larger. Here, we're looking at Deluxe-sized figures. Maybe we can compare it to Warbot: size is small Voyager/large Deluxe, may or may not have die-cast like Warbot, but comes with TONS of cool looking accessories.

Again, not thrilled with the price, but I'll look towards getting both, as well as the mini-bots.

Wanted to preorder Ironhide and Ratchet, but $220 is a LOT of money for a figure to be released so far into the future. If history is any indicator, there will be delays, if not a cancellation. Would I get my money back if the figure fell through? $30 for Huffer and Seaspray was a risk I was willing to take so I preordered those.

Those prices are absolute bulls***. Plus it's not like there will never be any more official figures of Ratchet and Ironhide

I want to go this route too, especially let them be reviewed and the paint apps seen.

I agree whole heartily! Look at the quality and what you get with FansProject and PerfectEffect for cheaper. I know it sounds retarded but if it's true that they're cheaper now, I have an impulse to bite the bullet on these....even just to save $20+. Do we know for a fact they're at a discounted price right now?

Considering that Ironhide and Ratchet will stand as tall (if not taller) than FansProiject's Defender, and contain much more accessories, I don't think the prices are too outrageous.

Their versions of Seaspray and Huffer are just too damn small. Who's the other company that is gonna make them and Powerglide ??? Im hoping theyll will up the size to at least scout.

P.S.

I gotta send a shout out to the "NOT" crew...
Right now Im eating some "NOT KFC" better known as Popeyes. :lol:

IT'S a HUNDRED AND TEN DOLLAR DELUXE!!!! Dude, come on, that's steep. I'm not saying it's so ridiculous that I'm not getting them, I'm saying it's (as far as I'm aware) the most expensive figure of that size ever released by a 3rd party. Record setting price tends to make it unobtainable for some people. Me? I'm just not going to eat for 2 weeks! :D

Unless iGear disappeared altogether, yes, you would get your money back. They're not going to be doing much future business if they took people's money and didn't deliver the product.

Yes, I love the accessories the not-Ironhide and not-Ratchet come with. True, the price is definitely more than I would like to pay, but if I were to get the money, I would buy them both. I mean, these guys do look awesome, and in my little opinion, they are great homages to Ironhide nad Rachet...........

I just noticed something else. On their pre order page they show Ironhide next to a G1 Optimus Prime. He towers over G1 Prime making him Voyager height. Universe Ironhide is actually shorter than G1 Prime. This kind of justifies the price, but the scale throws me off too much to purchase. Im trying to fill in gaps in my classics collection, not start a new supersized collection.

No idea, but I preordered the PP Seeker set back in Nov'11 and I'm still patiently awaiting the arrival of the last two figures. I knew it'd be a long wait, though, so I'm not saying anything negative.

Well, iGear could choose to change the prices at any time. I preordered Bee01 & 02 for the sale of $30, and now that they are released you can still get that price.

I'm curious though about getting it cheaper. TFSource has the 3 PP jets for a lot cheaper than iGear currently has it; however, I preordered them for even cheaper, but the shipping they charged was incredibly high. I'd probably have done better with TFSource preorder and shipping all 3 together, but TFS only opened this up a few months ago.

Think about this way. I think these figures are perfect for a Classics collection. They look a lot better than the Takara/Hasbro renditions, and come with TONS of cool looking accessories. If you did not get Takara/Hasbro versions when they came out, they can be had in the secondary market for almost similar prices to what iGear is asking now... it's a judgement call, sure. But I just need to plan to spend some serious cash on these guys.

$110. Yikes. I knew they'd be expensive but this is still a little surprising. They look really nice but I'm definitely not getting them. The minibots look cool too but I'd rather wait and see how competitive MakeToy will be.

Good call, and thanks! I don't have G1 Prime out to compare to my Classics figures, but it's good to have a better approximation now. And now, better to justify prices.
