Well, technically, he should hover, not roll or float.
NO HOVER NO BUY!
BOO HASBLOW... er... I mean... BOO EYEGEAR.
Picked up mine today from the post office and I gotta say I'm impressed. The colors aren't as vibrant as I'd like them to be, but overall fantastic toys. Looking forward now to their version of Cosmos.
Gotta say that after having both spray and hover in hands its easy to tell which one is best. Maketoys won by a looooooooong shot! Spray looks like a crappy ko in comparison while hover is much better in both modes with no giant gaps in alt mode like Igears. Plus hover fits perfect with legends while spray looks very out of place. I like Rager better but they could have made truck mode not so massive.
Well, I got Spray a few days ago and I LOVE THIS FIGURE
Looks even better with a clear back Autobot logo
I picked up Rager from the PO today, have to say I really like what they've done with it. A few more paint apps would be cool, but for the money he's a decent size and has some awesome poses in him.
When they've finished with the mini-bots it would be fantastic to see them work on the Decepticon cassettes. I never liked the United versions, and while the PE versions are nice, a fully articulated set of the twins, plus Lazerbeak, Ravage et al would be fantastic.
I ordered Rager...great looking little figure and he's very G1 cartoon accurate.
I really want to like Spray but I don't like the faceplate at all. It looks like it's gray(?).
I wish his faceplate was more cartoon accurate. It should've been yellow like the rest of his head and the shape should've been more angular like Optimus Prime's.
I got iGear in the mail and I like him a lot, but mine has a bit of a problem. The front end doesn't want to peg together well, I think it's actually too tight and it's forcing the 2 halves apart. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix that?
Other than that I think my only real "complaint" is I wish his mouthplate was painted yellow like it is on the box-art/stat card/G1 toy. Very, very satisfied with him, G1 Seaspray was my favorite Transformers toy when I was a kid and right now I've got him chilling with my old G1 Seaspray and I keep transforming them both back and forth, it's reminding me why G1 Seaspray is still one of my favorites; he's just a lot of fun to transform back and forth.
Also iGear Spray fits pretty perfectly in HFTD Seaspray's cargo bed, I find that hilarious.
Ohmygod they finally arrived today!!
I am so in love with these guys it's not even funny, they're even more awesome than I thought they'd be. My one complaint with these two is still the fact that the knees should've been ball joints as well but that's just a tiny quibble compared to the pure awesomeness staring at me as I type this.
Bring on the next Minibot preorders IGear, I'm more than ready.
I feel like they can use a premium paint job
You know that's one of the cool things about them as well. They have a nice base for a custom paint job. I plan on getting another set to paint up and chrome up Rager's pipes.
Got Spray today, and aside from his alt mode looking a bit “segmented” and less streamlined than Hover, I think he’s ace. I even like the head much better now that I see it in person. I was very pleasantly surprised to find his knees are ratcheted, which helps me get over the lack of ball joints there.
Now that I have him and Rager both I am ready to throw all of my faith and money at anything iGear wants to make. These two look and feel better than any Hasbro TF I’ve bought in the last couple of years. I’m even tempted to pick up their latest release of Faith Leader, even though I sold my MP01 and have MP10. Someone stop me!
Mine is exactly the same. I can get them pegged together but eventually they split. You could probably fix it easily by shaving or sanding a very small amount off of one of the tabs (remember there are two tabs that hold the front together) until it holds without splitting.
Sorry to zombie thread.
Does anybody know the peg-size of Rager's revolvers? They've gotta be smaller than 5mm. Are they compatible with Lego minifigs/Cyberverse figures?
Yes. I give Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime's guns to Spray...they look awesome with him.
You're a gentleman and a scholar sir, thank you!
Just got Huffer dressed up!
Looks pretty sweet! Could I request some altmode pics?
Ask and ye shall receive!!! =)
Thanks dude! Looks pretty great, especially the rims. I probably would have picked up a set for those alone! lol.
Here's a couple snaps of my "custom" sticker application for Rager. Maybe you've already seen them before?
Sorta similar placement in some areas. I LOVE what you did with the set as a whole though!
Chrome was a PITA but worth it. He has rims now too lol
