    Yeah this one is coming a little too close to the line, I expect we'll see a c&d order very soon on this one

    Cute and cool for display, but that headsculpt and what looks to be like unarticulated legs a la his official G1 counterpart make it an iffy buy to me.

    I don't understand why they don't make better legs for this one?
    But at the same time I really don't see how they can make this at all.

    blatant rip off made smaller..

    I'd rather see the gator con ones made. No rip off of an existing toy, yet it existed in the movie. Problem solved...

    Was wondering when we'd see these in color. Still looking good, I love the shot with Grimlock.

    Not sure what to make of this. The shot of them all surrounding MP Grimlock looks great, but I don't like the fact they are copying the original design.

    If you get multipak of them one better have a shredded face, one with busted teeth, and a flat one that fits under Grimmys foot..

    They need more articulation.

    Hmm. Interesting... still this does get really close to copyright infringement on Hasbro's stuff. But, considering it's coming from iGear I'm not surprised as they're the only ones who've been arrogant enough to actually use the Autobot & Decepticon logos on their merchandise.

    Also, another thought just came to me... this smaller version of Gnaw is on the same playing field as the WST Dinobots that another company made. Blatantly copies Hasbro's original toy designed, but miniaturizes it. The WST Dinobots all got made and no one ever went after that company so...

    Honestly, if iGear does get a C&D from Hasbro it'll probably have more to do with them actually utilizing the copyrighted faction symbols before this if the WST Dinobots are anything to go off of.
