    It looks like Eagle's TF (the guys making a Scourge, Kup and Steeljaw) are also making their own verion of Jaizitoys Powerglide. It's slightly different from the other molds in details, but basically from the same design.

    Othr posts from Eagle TF indicate that they are working on an Ironhide and a toy based on the Macross Valkyrie (aka G1 Jetfire).

    The Kup and Steeljaw appeared in another thread here in the news and rumors section a while back. I believe it was the same company since those pics are really familiar to me for some reason. However, I do like the hint of an ultra magnus armor coming? Or am I wrong about that? Hmmmmmm......

    The scourge looks very interesting. Not sure I would purchase the powerglide though.....

    Oh come on... :rolleyes: 

    I love the Jizai Powerglide, but this will be the fourth version of it. Will third parties please stop leeching off this design. How many G1 Powerglides do we need anyway?!

    Isn't this just a scratch build by a guy who can use styrene? I've seen no indication that Eagle is a 3rd party dude and not just a hobbyist.

    If Steeljaw is happening and works with Soundwave put me in for one. I just bought Sonicron from BBTS for $29 so I'm in for some 3rd party cassettes.

    Powerglide and Steeljaw are maybe. Kup is an easy pass for me.

    I agree, the 400 Jaizai Powerglides out right now was boring from the first announcement. Not Jaizai's but the copycats.

    I would love to hear the business-reasoning behind making ANOTHER powerglide.

    Well, the Maketoys and iGear Powerglides are original molds. The X-Transbots, Superalloy and Eagle's TF ones are all based on Jizaitoys.

    X-Transbots is doing many repaints as new characters, so that is cool. Superalloy is doing diecast to make theirs unique. igear's is Legends size and not that expensive, so that's the draw. Makatoys is Scout sized right?

    Again, where's the proof that this isn't just a custom this guy did? I've seen nothing to indicate he's anything more than a hobbyist.

    If I am not mistaken MT's versions are the same size as the iGear versions. :(
