Igear has updated their website store with a listing for another 3rd Party Group's figure. MGT-06 Shadow Assassin is a faithful representation of the popular Generation 1 cartoon episode "Enter The Nightbird". The figure comes with real metal weapons and is shown in the package on this listing. The figure sells for $99.00 on Igear's website.

$100 for a non transforming toy is asking a bit much, especially since I have another version of this character. I do like it though.
Agent-GHQ
That's quite an ass-rapping price!
maxirod
Total rip off!
Detroa
No thanks but MGT 2-5 will be welcome.
Stormcrow
Looks pretty cool.

Of course by "pretty cool", I mean "$20-$30 cool".

Not anywhere close to "$99 cool".
TheTFReview
I call this Igear play. The Poke and Hope. It won't sell because A. It's ugly. B. It's over-priced. C. It's a non-transforming toy at a premium price. D. It's got a "sexy" picture of the character, unlike the other fembots, when was Nightbird ever really sexy? I don't know. Maybe if they had the standard premium action figure price at $40 dollars, this figure would sell great. But I cannot see that happening. Sad

That's an insane price but I'm interested in the QC reviews.
megatroptimus
Doomed for ultra clearance. That's not an iGear toy btw, they're just reselling it.

Who cares about Nightbird?

IGear should get real on this, sure I want that version but they must not want my $40 for it. They didn't even spend ten bucks to make the figure and they want 99 bucks. My MP3 Soundwave didn't even cost that much and he even plays music. My scouting force X didn't even reach that price. > Get Real.

Me, she's by far my favorite obscure character and I've been praying IDW will bring her up and give her the ability to have a major impact on Megatron. Would get this is it was about $40 but not gonna pay any more than that.

Nightbird would be cool to have, but given the quality of the last "MGT" toy, I would only pay about $5 shipped from China for it!
harrismonkey
Nightbird was a G1 figure from the cartoon?

She doesn't seem even remotely familiar to me. Not that it matters.
MegaMoonMan
I've got a transforming one showing up in the mail today that I paid $30 for. I'm good.

I'll just put this here: http://tfsource.com/products/view/product_id/1666/

For $23 you can have this one: http://tfsource.com/products/view/product_id/658/
Yobuster
Urgh..... no thanks. That just does not look appealing and at that price too.
The box looks pretty lame and lacks pizzazz.

Holy crap that is some crazy clearance price.

As for this, at least they stuck to their original $100 price they announced when they first showed this figure. Then again with an insane markup like $100 how cant you meet the price. lol

I will wait for this to go for $30, Im interested but no where near $100 interested.

Given the quality of MGT-1, I know this will be a great figure. Though I'm in no rush to get it, this character isn't essential to my collection. If they had MGT-2 through 5 available I would buy every last one of them.
Wyvern
Yeah the Impossible Toys TRNS-01 one is cheaper now but god damn the QC of it sucks ass. This one looks way nicer but that price.... My god.

One Nightbird was already more Nightbirds than we really needed.

Are you sure you're not thinking of TRNS-1?

TRNS-1 = crap

MGT-1 = good but expensive

Yeah, I made a boo boo. I corrected it just before you posted. I switched out MGS for Impossible Toys TRNS-01.

The eternal rule, ass-shots sell products.

Even giant robot ninja ass-shots.

Wow its like stepping back in time.

if this was say 2002 I could totally see people going for it but the 3rd party have stepped up their A-Game and frankly $100 with some rather "interesting" box art is just not going to cut it

Yeah, with the stuff coming out in the near future this just gets bumped to the end of the line. And it will stay there if the price stays the same.
DJW107PRIME
I want that but it's not a priority at the moment, especially at that price.
soymonk
That plastic looks kinda iffy, especially for that selling price.

Just opened mine, and frankly it isn't THAT bad. Needs some work but there's nothing I can't fix. I can't imagine paying $120 for it, that's robbery.

For $30 I'm happy with it, the Nightbird spot is now filled.

...pass.

PASS - Looks like Crap and the GOD PRICE!!

I could not have said it better.
jason jupiter
hahah, am i the only one who preordered it?!?!?! not happy at all about the price but still interested in the piece. i think the proto pictures showed it with some diecast parts so yeah, i paid $70 more than what you guys think is a fair price to get some chunks of metal, hahahah

i have the tfcon nightbird and the impossible toy one, i think i just like really obscure references and it's kind of cool a robot from one episode has had 3 incarnations so far.
sodawilly
I have had it preordered..... I know it doesn't transform, but I have been REALLY happy with the quality of the "Delicate Warrior" Arcee figure. This is by far the best version IMHO to have a Nightbird figure, and if I am to have a Nightbird figure, I want one that I am going to be happy with.

I bought iGear's Arcee when she was available a few years back & I've heard that the same French guy is behind this Nightbird too. Sure she's bloody expensive but if you can afford it (their Arcee is one brilliant Classics-verse figure), I'd definitely consider this Nightbird as well.
sodawilly
It is the same person making this...... I'd like to see more on the prototype for MGT-02 Firestar we saw a long time ago. =)

- Gregg
Ash-T
In the end I decided to pass on it. Looks good by all means, but too pricey for a non-transformer... and those PE Arcees' are too tempting - I just had to choose. But as mentioned above - I'd really like to hear more about Firestar and girls.
The621
Not sure if that's the "final" price on Nightbird. I still wouldn't buy it, either way..

That'll be $119, plus shipping.

BBTS Preorder with new pics! I'm a little tempted to buy it but I'm not ready to drop $119.99 on it.

I cancelled the BBTS pre-order. These are going much cheaper from ebay or chimungmung. I got my one for $83 shipped. It is a most excellent figure and I highly recommend it. The articulation is spot on in every way, the sculpt is clean, the accessories are detailed and a lot. The balance is good even without the stand but with the stand the feet magnets allow for amazing poses. check it out..




CVprowl
looks pretty sweet!. dont know if im gonna be able to put down on it. i have to keep my collection within reason...
Ash-T
Wow - looks good, really accurate! Still, I'm glad I passed on it - too much stuff on preorder already...
megatroptimus
Ok, that looks pretty good.
sodawilly
I can't wait for mine to arrive! =)
