    Interesting little post on the 蛤蟆杂货店 Weibo Sina Visitor System

    A few renders of a new Ironhide and Runabout with the message "iGear重新开始!" (iGear renewal begins!)

    Ironhide looks okay but aside from the missing hip panels, it doesn't blow me away. Maybe an impressive view from the back would wow me. Hopefully, they drop the stupid blue windows and go with a light to medium black tint.

    Runabout's torso looks too wide and overall, he's very blocky.

    You know, I've asked them before...and never quite gotten a straight answer.

    Maybe not??

    I like the Ironhide, looks much better than the official... except for the strange flip down front end...? Not sure if that was required ???!!
    Anyway, can't wait to see more !!!

    Runabout, well, looks pretty good so far !!!
    So glad they kept the G1 toy car and didn't go some obscure Lamborghini or something !!!

    Robot mode looks pretty close to perfect, loving the feet !!.

    Now; why can't some 3rd party do a Sunstreaker with legs and especially feet that look as good as this !!!

    Glad to see someone finally tackling Runabout. Definitely going to be keeping track of this.

    Hmmn. Interesting. Very early renders in painfully static poses so hard to judge but definitely worth keeping an eye on. Articulation in the hands suggests MPish?

    How many Ironhides are we up to? Four? Yawnsome all the same. Call me when we get something we need

    At least Runabout does something new, but he's far too... Bland. And honestly? I think a bit too flat as well. Mind if you're ever going to do the Battlechargers, ignore the cartoon completely and look at their comic models because, well, Decepticon Graffiti is sort of their entire main point

    Meh. Just give up on the whole Ironhide thing already

    Jumpstarters are a great idea. Concentrate on them

    With a decent runabout/runamuck, I would be but 3 figures away from completion!

    ... Where's his orange?

    Now I know I'm Mecheon, hater of MP toys and grumpy dinosaur nerd, who's goal in any MP thread is to find anyone from a company posting and tell them no, stop producing MP stuff and come back to CHUG where you can make interesting things without being yelled about scales and screen accuracy, but, c'mon, Runamuck's supposed to be white and orange. Its his thing.

    Not too concerned about their Ironhide, but sign me up for Runamuck and Runabout if they're in the MP scale.

    I imagine it's cartoon colours where he had no orange:

    tumblr_mxghn4ctTO1rj9p07o1_500.png

    Simplest answer is more often than a not the actual answer. Needs a bigger hoodie for me though. If this really is igear then get PPO1 out at Mp10 height and we then have our cartoon Optimus Prime too.

    Pretty sure there's already a CHUG Runamuck and Runabout though?

    Yeah, and there's already another another at least 3 (Probably more?) MP Ironhides, yet we have another one here...

    Regardless, he just looks really, really boring without his orange, cartoon be damned. Plus, well, let's be honest? Runabout and Runamuck did nothing in the cartoon. They're side characters on the level of Skids. Their main showing was in the comics, and Runamuck had his orange there.
