Well, unless they got a really late shipment coming in, it's probably not coming today.
Got mine this morning. He feels great and is pretty simple to transform. He's a bit smaller than I was expecting, but is still really nice.
About 5" tall at the head?
How'd you get it so fast?
Me four!!! Yay
@NOCV Picked him up on the way to work, so can't measure him right now, but looks to be about as tall as TR Deluxe.
@The Vic Viper I live in Taiwan.
Could someone post a picture of him with his hips bent as far forward as they possibly can go without utilizing the ab crunch at all in the process. Thanks.
Also got my shipping notice this morning. I ended up buying both new Palm Series HM two-packs, the legends Windblade repaint and this Jetfire during the flash sale. I was expecting Jetfire to ship in a month or so, not this soon. I'm very happy to be receiving him with the rest of my order.
Can someone pls post pic of his jetmode using iron factory god ginrai jetpack?
The full review for Iron Factory's IF EX-30 is up! Link in sig.
Overall it's one of the finest Legends-scaled figures I've ever laid eyes or hands on. Fantastic build, sculpt, and articulation that honestly puts it on par with pieces like those in the MakeToys Cross-Dimension line. The review breaks it down, but here are a few pics from the gallery:
A size comparison mockup as well:
I know you'll probably get yours in before I do, but here are some pics to help you with sizing.
Using Kuma's comparison pics as reference.
He'll be too short with the 1/100 HMR, but he'll actually scale better with the Konig Monster which is smaller than 1/100 scale.

These are unbelievable pictures!
A question for folks who have this as well as IF EX-14 Ultimate Commander: Do you think there’s been any significant upgrade in plastic quality and/or joints?
I love the appearance of a lot of IF stuff, and am tempted, but I really disliked the in-hand feel of Commander. Plastic felt light, developed stress marks quickly, joints squeaked, ball joints were unstable and would favor certain crooked positions… If you can comment on how Cygnus feels differently (or doesn't) in-hand, please do—thank you!
Damn....5"? I wished he was abit taller....
I don't own Jetfire yet, but I do own Commander and a bunch of other IF releases. Commander was a bit...Weird. Kinda felt like they cheaped out a tiny bit on the plastic compared to the rest. Maybe it's just the red plastic, I don't know. But something about it feels off compared to the rest of their offerings.
Thanks for the review TJ, can't wait to get mine. Just a quick FYI, the last paragraph of your review sounds like it was incomplete "Even though there are
som Iron Factory pieces that I have a bit much attachment to like hte War Giant Blasters or Racing Bros, Cygnus is easily the one that I’d recommend to anyone looking for the best example of what Iron Factory has to offer. "
I'm in the same boat with Ultimate Commander... feels light, things don't stay tabbed well, etc... Cygnus is nothing like that.
TY; sentence is complete but typo hell. fixing now.
