    G1, G2, and Ruination.

    4 sets each... 1 for combined mode, 1 for separate robot modes, 1 for vehicle modes, 1 to keep in the box.

    That will be 12 IF Bruticuses, the equivalent of one down-payment on a 4br, 3ba 2 story house. (not that I'm complaining about their prices... on the contrary, it just is what it is.)

    This is was what I wanted to see! I know they don't show Bob or Hunter with Sunstreaker, but they didn't show the ghost parts, Megatron gun or coronation gear for Starscream either. Going to get both of them. Thank you, thank you, thank you Iron Factory!

    I guess that's true, but I really prefer DX9 (or even UT) over these. IF's toys are very hit or miss... some of them transform like crap! So hopefully these come out a bit more polished, but it feels like IF's designs are usually TOO simplistic, to the point where they really screw up some of their toys (i.e. Arcee or Drift).

    These look almost ready ship too. Unless they are hand painted? I hope they go with the MTMTE head design for inevitable Red Alert repaint/remold.

    G2 Sideswipe would be cool but there isn't really a corresponding Sunstreaker to go with him.

    Oh right! They are both ex-26, the same set. Maybe they could make something up or use a foreign or diaclone color scheme?
    Also just noticed Sideswipe's piledriver hands, nice! Hoping they include a jetpack too.

    I'd rather have dx9 do them, but I'll take what I can get.

    Specifically, I kind of wish they cleaned up the sides more - the indent is pretty weird. And the top of the cars don't look quite right either. But IF usually focuses on bot mode, and alt mode comes 2nd (if at all). So this is why I prefer DX9 (who seem to focus on both modes). It can't be that hard to make the sides uniform, can it? :confused: 

    Trust me, you'll get sucked in! :lol 

    As for me, I'm switching to ONLY Legends - I'm not a fan of the giant MPs (have you seen how big MP-scaled FT Omega is??? :lol ). Of course, displaying Legends toys comes with its own set of challenges...

    But the best part about buying Legends and not MPs? The release schedule doesn't break the bank. :)

    They do. They are just the reverse of one another. Look at Sunstreaker's knees. They are reversable. His shins are Sideswipe's calves. Sideswipe's toes and Sunstreaker's heels. Their shoulders are also backwards, as are their chests and backs.

    This makes a really easy Tigertrack. XD

    The reason i love what iron factory do so much is that they don't always stick to source metrical. They take their own leaps and like the chest on the sun streaker, it isn't all g1 but it still incapsulates what the character is meant to represent. And as a small scale line the amount of effort, articulation and detail put into each figure is astonishing. I love the suntreaker and sideswipe and i can only hope for more

    ps i also love the idw designs. iron factory uses these allot

    Actually.. they're even more different than that.

    Sunstreaker's legs make up the front of his car (as they should) while Sideswipe's legs make up the rear (again, as they should). Same difference for the arms. It's the same underlying frame, torso.. but the entire outisde of the car is flipped around to match the general style of how the original characters transformed.
