    Yes, I know... iGear sucks and deserves to die blah blah blah...

    I just want to know if their downscaled Sharkticons were ever released. I was looking forward to getting a few to pose with MP Grimmy. Were they actually made and I just completely missed it?

    I don't have that opinion but maybe it's because of their KO MP Seekers?

    I was looking forward to those until the Botcon 3-pack. I might skip them now, especially since they won't work with MP Rodimus.

    Only because it seems like every time the name iGear comes up on a thread it turns into a thread full of comments like that... then arguments start up and then the nerd rage takes over the thread like a cancer.

    With me saying that in the first post I figured I'd steal all the negative people's thunder and block them from derailing the thread. I just want to discus the toys and that's it. The figures looked cool and i was actually looking forward to them.

    So yeah... mini Sharkticons.... was a price ever set??

    I asked that question on their Facebook account earlier this year. They said the project has been haulted.

    well nerd rage aside i think its likely they were put on hold for the KO MP seekers as they figured they would be more profitable and they likely will be.

    If I remember correctly, RK had them for $60 for a set of three. I also think that someone on the boards had them on preorder with a bunch of other stuff from RK. I really hope he got them cancelled, or that order may be sitting in the warehouse for years.

    The interchangible faces looked sick.
