    No idea if the mouth is hiding behind the plate, but BOTH heads do feature the moving/"talking" faceplate feature.

    Peaugh, do you think you could take another picture or two? I'd like to see this figure with some of the Classics Autobot Deluxes.

    They're doing an MP-megs too? Man, these could very well be the coolest toys, ever.

    iGear said this was a partner product, in regards to questions about the QC after the Arkset. So if the quality is a lot better, it doesn't mean anything about iGear's actual upcoming products, as iGears is only selling this figure, not making it. The QC will only speak for their partner who has made this, the upcoming mini MP Megatron, and mini Classics Prime. If those get made.

    Yeah, but I wonder if maybe the partners just joined up with iGear. I got the impression this was more iGear's baby by the time we started seeing preorders. Either way, the fig is nicely done.

    I actually thought the same as well. But there have been several comments by iGears, where they basically say its the partner's product, which makes it distant themselves from the figure. Very weird.

    Yes, the PP01 has the mouth under the faceplate.

    Excuse me? What iGear is doing here is illegal! They're completly ripping off one of Hasbro and Takara's figures!
    Im not the one that's going to get sued here, open your eyes..

    Disappointing that they didn't take the opportunity to improve on the figure where it needed it most, in my mind - the SUPER wide ratchet range on the hips. I'd have almost been tempted to get this if they had replaced them with tight friction joints or soft ratchets; even if they had just doubled the number of detents in the joints themselves so that there were more posing options than "legs straight" and "legs splayed at wide angles". I like the extra hands and head options, but really redesigned hips would have been a seller to me.

    Just out of curiosity; why are you so upset that they made this?

    I've been thinking of buying this, but... I think I'll skip. Although it does look nice, there's just something about it I don't like.

    Nice review, though.

    I think that this is Igear's product but they are saying it is a partner's product so they will have less liability if Has/Tak finds a way to bring them to court.

    Although, since this doesn't have the heaviness of the diecast to worry about, you might be able to just remove the springs from the hips and tighten them enough with superglue so that they work as friction joints.

    I do this from time to time on some of my official figs. Sometimes those super-tight ratchets annoy me, with all their incessant, loud, high-pitch clicking, so I just disable the ratcheting mechanism.

    Umm...from the following thread...

    older video review links
    So now it's ok to frontpage our tacit endorsement of a KO?

    Just sayin...
