    I think IF could do a better job with the Fallen. The one from the new company looked too much like a first try, and it may well be, if it comes out.

    IF already have an ideal slight remold with their Onslaught into Hotspot. It's reminiscent of the CW Hotspot/Onslaught mold.

    Jetfire could be a slight remold of Starscream with added boosters, or they could have a slightly larger jet inspired by his comic appearances.
    Either way may work for me.

    Yes I do, I had the problem on both SS and GSS, but as I said in my previous post, I have repaired it.

    I'm very interested to see how War Giant does for IF.

    I'm guessing Hulkie wasn't a huge success for DX9 since Predaking seems to have disappeared from their line up, or at least is on the very, very back burner.

    If War Giant is a success then a slight remold of Onslaught makes a huge amount of sense. I am really curious if they are experimenting with the most profitable way to package these legends figures. Stand-alone, sets of two, multi-packs.

    They plan to release a lot of figures this year; next year's line-up and how they choose to sell them should be interesting.

    My guess was that after the mft ko hulkie, dx9 is holding predaking a bit closer to the vest . Hopefully they're noting the response to the war giant pricing and will manage to land it around or under the hulkie price point

    For me, Hulkie's price point turned me away almost instantly. That toy should never have been more than $120 at the start. And truth be told, maybe a bit less since it was a six-pack of commander-sized figures all in one.

    And the fact that the KO was rather popular, it wasn't that people didn't want the set. I also hope that DX9 is paying attention to the reactions to War Giant's price points as well. But, maybe they came out of this deciding it wasn't worth it and scrapped Predaking or decided to hold off. I do want to see that set eventually, but pricing is everything.

    How'd you do that without destroying the red paint? My pins are both super tight and wouldn't budge.

    Does anybody have a step-by-step for disassembling the back wings and reassembling the parts to fix the clip? I'd like to flip it around, but I'd like to do it as safely as possible.

    I couldn't get the pin pusher close enough to the pin to use its vice function, it risked chewing up the side of the torso. And the pin is in too firmly to press it out by hand. And there's no good way to get a sufficient grip on it to hammer it out. So I gave up.

    Not the sure if this has been asked before, but is the included stand strong enough to hold up larger figures like voyagers? Or is it only meant for legends?

    Well I have used that stand a lot lately and it's been on all kinds of figures, even the heavier 3rd party voyager sized figures. So I would say it definitely is strong enough, atleast to me it is.

    Thanks then! To me, the main allure of this figure over other options is the bonus stand. It looks sooo useful. I wish more companies would offer them with their figures.
