    Okay iGear, you released (finally) Ironhide & Ratchet and by all accounts Brawn & Cosmos are right around the corner. So, where and when will we see the release of Impactor and the Sharkticons???? It has been months since we got any sort of update. What does everyone else think? Am I the only one waiting for these guys????

    Third party releases are nothing if not slow. This should be pretty obvious at this point, especially with how long Igear's Ratchet and Ironhide took.

    I'm eager for the minibots too, but don't get worked up over them. They'll come out eventually, just be patient.

    Yeah, I know - just would like some idea on where they are with them. I'm hoping because of the Ironhide/Ratchet fiasco, they are keeping things close to the chest until ready to be released.

    BTW - Love your picture.

    Might be waiting a wee while longer for PP02 Horror Monarch. According to a known insider, iGear's downsized version of MP Megatron project has been dropped and it's doubtful they'll ever pick it up again. Unknown newcomer third party company LianToys showed off a silhouetted teaser of their own version of Megatron called "Darkness Emperor" (scaled to PP01 Faith Leader). No idea if it's legit or not (could be fake?), or even when it's set for release.

    As for iGear, I think they've learned manufacturing large original designed/molded figures is a giant PITA (remember they don't have the capacity/money that HasTak does) and may stick to working on finishing up their Mini Warriors line first before we see Presser/not-Impactor. Which suits me fine. I'd rather they finish up the MWs before moving on to bigger and better stuff.

    And I have been waiting for Ultra Magnus Trailer/Armor since Igears announced purchased PP-01Ultra and the armor will follow.

    In regards to MiniWarriors, I would not be surprised if we see pairs released every 3-4 month.

    Regarding PP Megatron and Ultra Magnus ... With MP Ultra Magnus and Megatron V2.0 onthe horizon, I think iGear did the smart thing and just laid that project to rest.

    Now what we need news on is Impactor and those Sharkticons. I really hope those Sharkticons come in a 3 pack for $100 or less.

    Does anyone else remember iGear's Dinobots, supposedly to be Voyager Class figures. I want to see those as well. And I really hope the MT MP Dinobots are still on the cards as well.

    With FoC Voyager Grimlock around the corner (maybe the rest of the Dinobots), I'm not so sure there'll be a market for iGear's versions.

    I'm very anxious for Impactor as well. Seeing Hasbro's pathetic release has made me want it even more. Hopefully once they get some if the Minibits out they'll finally get going on it.

    Thanks :) 

    It'd be less of a pain if the preorder listings still said Q3 or Q4 or something. When it's getting bumped month to month it's added frustration.

    Impactor is my most wanted 3rd party item right now so I'm hoping for more news on it now that Ironhide & Ratchet are done although I wouldn't be suprised if iGear don't do more Mini Warriors first.

    Hopefully Hasbro rereleasing Onslaught as Impactor doesn't discourage them.

    I can't say that Hasbro's vesion is a steaming pile of dung but iGear's is pretty much the character brought to life..

    OK, I'll say it,

    Hasbro's attempt at Impactor IS a steaming pile of dung and that whole Wreckers combiner thing looks pathetic.

    If someone ever donates a set to charity the charity people would likely refuse to accept such junk.

    I would buy 2 of iGears versions and any other G1/IDW Wreckers they made providing they were original molds.
