    YouTube - PP03J Jet FIGHTERTEAM prototype test shot

    Just saw it on facebook... didn't see it here so here we go!

    Altho I don't necessarily share the same views as those who knock igear for this type of stuff, I really do think that they should take these energies and skill and do something original and truly remarkable.

    I like the MP Starscream mold, but I just can't justify the prices iGear is asking for these.

    um...more or less same price as what Takara/Tomy charges for MP Starscream & Thundercracker.

    I wasn't planning on getting these but man so tempted...

    Well... I personally don't buy a masterpiece unless it's at Wal Mart.

    I do love what iGear has done with these but they cost just as much, if not more, than the actual SS MP. I can't justify spending that kind of coin on a knock off.

    Wow.... as soon as I get the money, I'm putting in my order through RK. Between getting Generations Thundercracker last night and these three figures, this year is a great one for being a seekers fan. OCD satisfied!!

    Now I just need to figure out what shelves to get to display all these properly.

    I love the look of these, and I don't think that they, themselves, are too expensive. It's really the shipping that makes these things crazy expensive. Looking good, looking good. I'd really love to have these.

    Nice to see confirmation that the head doesn't need to be removed for plane mode. :)

    I really want these guys, but they're just not high priority enough, especially with TFC's Devastator in progress. Hope they're available long enough into the future for me to make up my mind.

    I pre-ordered them at robotkingdom but it's possible to do the same also at the igear shop for the same price :)

    I am so incredibly happy that I went ahead and pre-ordered and pre-paid for the entire set months ago when they were first listed. I don't really understand the cost complaints, these are really about what a true MP figure from Takara would cost with just a bit more (ok a whole lot more) for shipping. Either way as long as the QC is good I think it will be money well spent.

    Don't forget though that iGear just sent out an email announcing a delay of 40-50 days on these guys. Nothing unexpected really from a 3rd party manufacturer, but we will have to patient, regardless of how the prototypes look ready to go. Still, I can't wait to add these to my MP collection.

    (I absolutely love how they kept the hip kibble on the legs and made it simply slide up out of the way. Genius.)

    No, I don't see them properly like knock-offs, cause don't exist original MP Coneheads :D
