YouTube - iGear PP03A ATTACK "Thrust"‏
Seen the Ramjet 1 which is my favorite TF anyway but I want all 3 of these even though they are the same mold as starscream.
i really think i am gonn have to get these
Wrist communicators man, wrist communicators, show them off!
can u keep him in robot mode without rotating the wings up?This is the only thing i dont like about this figure
The coolest of the bunch in my opinion. Won't buy it, but you gotta admit these are damn sexy...
totally sweet..bring em-on
Jesus peaugh, reading through your youtube comments is... frustrating. The recurring theme for these iGear seekers seems to be those who dont understand this is a slight remold of a Hasbro product "hey hasbro pay attention, THIS is how you do it" and those asking random shit to get you to run their lives for them. Thats the rub for the huge #s, huh? Just can't imagine getting bombarded all day with that nonsense!
Anyway, this looks thebest of the series to me. Need to get it in hand to ensure good plastic though, the mold is fragile enough already.
Sorry for the rant, let me know if I'm an idiot...
Im still gonna get this. But there just to top heavy. Hard to pose.
I always thought Thrust had the most unrealistic looking jet design ever .
Thrust as a real life jet plane = ultimate disaster.
After watching all 3 Conehead video reviews (nice job as always, Peaugh), I'm almost sold on these guys, but think they all could REALLY benefit from having dark nosecones in jet mode. As they are right now, they just look far too plain imo - almost mass spray painted. Also pretty letdown by Dirge's blue. In the promo shots, it was much deeper with a shine to it, but now it's as light as Generations Thundercracker. Same goes for Ramjet's & Thrust's grey bits. Maybe it's just the camera not picking up the exact colors, but all the parts that should be dark greys just look straight black.
I dunno, deciding to pull the trigger on buying these is really tough.
Part of it's definitely the camera, Dirge is a nice deep blue.
Got Ramjet on the way. Can't wait to have all 3!
I picked up Ramjet at Botcon and these guys are really awesome. Thrust def looks to be my favorite of the 3 and I cant wait until he gets released.
Thrust was always the coolest and most appealing to me, I can't wait to have him in my hands. I painted my ramjets nose cone black in his alt. mode looks better IMO. And I will do the same with thrust and dirge, but only on thrust I will paint his eyes yellowish gold. I think it makes him look more cartoon accurate.
saw these at Botcon, they look great in person. all the panels fit very nicely together, unlike the hasbro/Takara releases.
The plastic is EXCELLENT. THe joints are on par with the Hasbro/Takara toys. And the best part is, iGear even FIXED several QC issues that plagued the original Takara MP releases. Such as: improved the wing hinges. I have had several versions of all the Takara seekers, and with the exception of Ghost Starscream, every one has stress marks or the wings have broken. Not on the iGear versions. This issue has been fixed. The long extension tabs on the arms (and on other parts of the toy) have been decreased in side to increase strength and to prevent stress marks/breakage. Of course, they fixed the hip kibble issues. Added a few wrist communicators.
Due to all this, I think it's a BETTER MADE TOY than the Takara/Hasbro versions.
My only issue: no instruction booklets. ??? A Comic book, bio card 6 sets of different decals, yes, six...but no instructions. Also, if you are like me and have big hands, there is NO WAY you can open the communicators WITHOUT the assistant of an exacto knife. But that is a minor complaint.
These are WORTH GETTING. Pictures do NOT do these any justice. You have to see/handle these babies in person.
dude the plastic quality is xcellent..and these are on par or even better than has/tak ver in some retospects..ive got every ver of the seeker modes and this on by far is my fav even better than skywarp or g.screamer which im very fond of...L8s...
now to just waiting on the other two..and the rainmakers...
Ah, good to hear! The plastic was my only worry, and that can be a subjective thing. Seems the verdict is positive. Thanks for the feedback, guys!
