    Great review of the set, and truly awesome pictures. My only question is how in the world did you get your Grimlock's front half of his tank mode to sit flush and not spit apart. I swear I can't get his "wings" to come together and sit flush in tank mode no matter how hard I try.

    Also, I can't for the life of me figure out how to get Sludge's shoulders to lock in place when he's in vehicle mode. Any tricks? I swear I've exerted more force in trying to push those shoulders into a supposed tap that I'm shocked I didn't shatter the poor toy (I'm a fairly big guy).

    @Wolfdawg - thanks good sir!

    Right, the trick with Grimlock is finding the clearance to get the back of the wings perfectly aligned with the hinged section they are attached to. You need to do this before you start sorting out his chest. Make sure his arms are as out of the way as they can be.

    When they sit straight against that section they will line up flush. If they don't sit straight they won't and you cannot manipulate them once in vehicle mode as there's no room to play.

    As for Sludge, not sure. Mine always tab in with an audible *click*. I tend to pivot the ball joint out and in to do it. Definitely helps if you are looking at the tabs and the holes so try holding him upside down.

    Hope that helps!

    [Voice=Morgan Freeman]... All was going well for Shockwave that day until his entry for the Iacon Battle Bots Tournament turned on him. Took poor Hun-grr all night to pull what was left of Shockwave from his "Shedder for Efficient Destruction MK II". [Ol' Shockwave wasn't much for creative, witty names and all that.] I guess we'll never know why he opted to make the damned thing self aware... Why, I, myself, would've just hooked it to a remote control and been done with it. Maybe one of those Bluetooth deals I hear the young ones talking about... But no one ever seems to ask Ravage for his opinion on things...

    Anyway, since it had a taste for warm energon, Megatron put it down with one blast of his fusion cannon. And that was the end of that.[/Voice]

    Love what you did her with the plates and perspective. It had not come up to me to have these 2 continuities together but they look so good!

    Man... I can hold off no longer... I think I'm going to start collecting Legends Class - mostly just so that I can justify buying this set. They look so cool and so mini, and I like the idea that I don't need to fight with the wife in order to buy a new display cabinet (although I'm sure that day will come if i buy too many of these guys.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions on other good legends class figures to pick up if I'm going to start a collection - or is this a good place to start? I have NONE (although do the perfect effect rumble & frenzy guns count)?

    I was able to negotiate a price of $135 US shipped worldwide for this set for myself. Happy to hook anybody else up as well if you're interested - just send me a PM and send me a Christmas Card if you want (just kidding). Link in my signature for details.

    This is a surprisingly cool little set. IF Legends is worth collecting, if just for the fun factor.

    I'd call out the Iron Factory Armored Tactical Staff, which is, yes, one mold three times, but there's LOTS of parts to customize with. UT's Tom and Jerry are pretty slick too. I've heard good stuff about IF Evil Lord. I don't have any of the DX9 War in Pocket figures, but a bunch of them look great.

    if'S City Commander, Soul Reaper and the Armored Tactical Staff (review I did at the beginning of the year, intro has links to write-ups of Evil Lord and Scouts and Sniper) are all excellent figures, the latter being one of the best little VFM sets out there. These Knights are great too, especially if you shop around and get them for a song. I keep meaning to try UT's Tom and Jerry as I hear great things about them.

    I really like IF's City Commander, Evil Lord and Tactical Squad. I would also recommend IF's Windblade or Pink Assassin. The recent three pack from DX9 contains my favorite figures from them. Their Decepticon three pack is also really fun. UT's Tom and Jerry is really fun to fiddle with.

    I like City Commander a lot, but I think it's worth calling out that (at least on my copy) the fit and finish was not as good as the newer Iron Factory figures. It's kind of crazy, because they went from company I like a lot who have some minor QC issues to one of my favorite 3rd parties really fast.

    If you want to get some HasTak figures: Shockwave and Cosmos are both standout Legends scale figures.
