Igears PP03T box art..
Colorful Too bad I already have the Walmart version.
"Traitor"...Sounds about right~
I have a feeling Igear is going to eat their shirt on this one.
People will buy it (including myself), so don't worry about iGear.
Too bad the WalMart version has the hip kibble.
Igear updated the pics on there site for traitor:
Not really sure if I like the way the colors turned out. Again, I feel the prototype pics looked much better than the final product.
Why does Hasbro, Takara, AND iGear keep making the hinges on the wings in a contrasting and non-matching color?! I don't get it.
How hard is it to mold those things in the same fucking color as 75% of the figure?!
He's too bright and a little garish, especially that jet mode pic, just don't feel it......Hasbro version with hip kibble mod is far better.....Thundercracker on the other hand......
Looks a bit... KO-ish? I mean aside from the obvious, of course. The colors look too bright, and the lack of really any sort of weathering or extra paint detail at all in vehicle mode (aside from stripes, etc.) doesn't give it the masterpiece feel.
They're probably on a different tree of parts, probably with the head, shoulder, knee, and other joints, which are molded in black to look like internal mechanics or something.
I have a different question. How is it IGear can make a very nearly exact replica of G1 Starscream..... and not get their asses sued into oblivion by Hasbro?!?
from what i remember It was discussed , but from what i remember the quality of the plastic is stronger thats why most of the joint pieces are done that way. There was more detail about colored plastics but i dont remember..
Would cost Hasbro to much to try to even get igear(or any third party company) to court let alone Sue them.
I think they should have did a different pose for this box. it looks tooo..... idk... it just doesnt look right.
So they have come out anime G1 Starscream,TakaraTomy & iGear are fighting right now
im not worried about anything. its fairly obvious that they will lose money on this one seeing MP11 is coming out right around the corner.
I remember Aaron Archer confirmed this waaaaaaay back in the Armada days. It's to compensate for the stresses on the joint for when it moves, give it more sturdiness. Don't remember ever seeing something about the different tolerances of different types of plastics though.
I will buy whichever SS is cheaper.
I'm suprised how Igear is getting away with a product like this and NOT have Hasbro and Takara blasting the company with lawsuits! I mean the Igear coneheads I can understand but THIS? This is almost on the level of a true knock off!
