Seriously? Now you are even getting third party stuff early? Come on man, not fair!!!
I'm really digging the redesigned legs and the colors work really well. He isn't quite as bland as I thought he would be from the previous prototype pics, I hope they keep the color scheme for the production run.
Watching this makes me really really wonder what idiot at Takara thought that putting the tail fins on the hips as kibble was a good idea (yes, I know they were supposed to evoke a samurai sword feel, but it l drastically better with the kibble on the legs like the original SS prototype).
Glad I have him pre-ordered from TFsource.
^^This! I can't wait to get mine
The other remolded feature all of the iGear seekers have are the wrist communicators like on MP Prime. Don't know if you knew that or not, I didn't see you mention it in the other reviews (maybe I nissed it), if not, there ya go!
I noticed them after I had shot everything. I didn't go back and shoot them since aside from Ramjet's (who had Starscream on his right and Sunstorm on his left), they were all blank. It's a neat addition.
Just preorder him. I have to get a part time job alot of 3rd party stuff I'm getting shesh... Anyone wanna buy Hercules for me
Takaratomy, do something!! You're looking bad here..so dont loose out to third party asses.
Igear you are souless thief bastards. Nice job! Keep it up. Has/Tak don't wanna make what we want, then this is what they get!
This has probably been asked before several times, but, are these guys the same size as the real MP seekers?
Yes. These are the EXACT same size as the original Hasbro/Takara Masterpiece MP Seekers. Some quality issues have even been fixed! No more issues with the wing joints, fixed the extended pegs that use to stress or break. And of course the removal of that damn hip kibble. Plus the bonus of the dual wrist communicators is very cool!
My only complaint about them is they do not come with instruction booklets. A comic book, 6 different sticker sheets (each), a thick ass bio card...but no instructions. But if you buy one of these, chances are you already know how to transform it, I guess.
Oh really? That sucks the others were blank. It is a very neat touch indeed. Maybe a job for Reprolabels?
i hope igear does a preorder option for all the rainmakers like they did the c.heads.. thats the only thing keeping me from preordering em like i did the c.heads..
@ Peaugh: I must say you were incredibly chipper in this review. Quite the barrell of monkeys. Had a fair few chuckles
They will all have stickers on the communicator displays for the final versions. All of these that I've review with the exception of Ramjet were test shots on loan to me for review purposes, and as such there might be slight changes to the final product, which includes the application of the communicator screen stickers.
Pop! Pop! I happen to love Community also.
Dammit, the urge to buy ALL of these Seekers is almost overwhelming. I hate the thought of using my credit card at TFSource to put them on preorder but they're so nice!!
Duh, I forgot you said they were test shots. Good to know, thank you my friend!
Was iGear gonna release a Starscream with this fixed mold?
Man I hope so. Why not redo all the original seekers? Do you not want more of my money?
