    Now that there is a pretty Nightbird. Bought.

    Why do I get the feeling that before the year is done iGear will go from the most hated 3rd party group to the most loved?

    Keep it up all you 3rd party groups. I am so loving what you are giving us. It is either your wonderful goods or $60 repaints from TFCC or $250 MP boring Prime from the official source. (this bellyaching does not include the wonderful gift of Classicverse and TF : Prime that we have or will be getting)

    edit...

    What is going on with that back piece? There is too much invovled for it to be a simple piece of plastic that does nothing. I wonder if that is where all the weapons store.

    Kinda interesting... this is the 3rd 3rd Party Nightbird isn't it?

    I see some obvious flaws, but prototypes are usually like that. If I had a sent of the Quintessons, I might be interested more. But I don't, and probably never will. I have no idea why having them would make me more interested. They just kind of seem to be lumped into that non-Transforming category that I've mostly stayed away from. OCD is weird like that some times.

    I edited my post right as you were asking.

    They don't. But my brain has categorized them the same :)

    I get it with the NON transforming catagory.

    I will definately keep my eye on this. Price will make all the difference here.

    Oh I disagree! The Impossible Toys NB has kind of a soft sculpt. I hear their stuff is grand, but it just doesn't have enough of a "robot" aesthetic to work for me.

    I was GOING to get the IT Arcee-to-NB repaint, but its tiny size, and mold issues (I own both Arcess and Paradon Medic versions), and general off-model (to NB) design made it not worth the rather hefty price.

    Now THIS one, if it's Dlx-Voyager-ish sized, I'll be all over, almost regardless of price. The Year-1 Decepticon cast is pretty small unless you pad it with Air Warriors and Reflector clones, so Nightbird, a GOOD Nightbird, would be a wonderful addition IMO!

    I just ordered mine...... This looks to be the same aesthetic as the MGT-01 Arcee figure. That being said, this looks to be the same size as the Arcee figure, which is perfect deluxe scale. Pure win!

    Overpriced 3rd party stuff. They got me on Faith Leader and UM because they were more in scale with my Grimlock and Seekers but now that MP-10 is coming out hopefully I can get rid of them and stick with Masterpeice stuff. iGear has some nice stuff but it is just WAY overpriced imo.

    Looks REALLY nice. But it's a lot of money for a figure that doesn't transform... Unless I'm missing something?

    Cool! Looks nicer than the version released at TFCon last summer, Nightbird should never have had an alt mode if you ask me.
