    Glad I went igear. I have issue with the size and thought MT and igear were the same height. It is clear that igear's version has some good extra.height on him compared to MT.

    Looking forward to having all 8 igear minibots in my possession.

    I-gear Spray for me, especially considering Hover comes with Chuck Manson-Glide.

    ...man, neither of those look appealing to me. Glad I just repurposed HFTD Sea Spray.

    I really prefer the Maketoys Seaspray head over IGears so hopefully I can switch them pretty easily. As for the Maketoys figures, I honestly can't recommend them, parts don't line up well in alt modes and the shoulders on Hover get in the way big time and pop off during transformation.

    I saw a comparison of the two the other day, can't remember where, but the Igear one s far better IMHO. It's all about the little things, like the blades, the feet, the details, hands, weapon, just overall it seems to be better, visually.

    Shame these guys are Legends scaled. I'd love for a Scout/Deluxe version of Rager to be made...

    I prefer the iGear one myself, even though I usually hate iGear's stuff and I love Maketoy. The iGear one looks more like a small scout toy while the Maketoy one looks like a legends version Hasbro would make.

    QFT.

    Not if you swing the arms up 90 degrees before swinging the yellow piece. Perfect clearance.

    While he may be out of scale, I'm still sticking with HFTD seaspray.

    Hover all the way. The I-Gear one looks like a hunchback on roids.

    This is the exact reason I prefer the Spray figure, I like the fact the whole i-gear MW range has a unique matching aesthetic by the same designer.
