IGear Mini-Warrior designer, Dillinger 3D Concept Toy Designs on Facebook, have uploaded a teaser for the new Mini-Warrior from IGear. Powerglide will be the next homage from this third party group and as a bonus, you can enter for a chance to name the figure and receive him as a prize!

So what will be? Mighty Flight? Strongwind? Flightpath? Heart Throb? (Those are just a few of the suggestions!) Click on the title bar and head over to the 3rd Party Forum to chime in!

I think Windcharger would have been a better choice with there already being a few Powerglides on the market.

Maybe one day they'll see sense.

Excellent, my favorite minibot. A new Windcharger would be cool as well I guess, but like so many other people, I just want a redo on Spray and Rager. My vote for his name would be Thunderbolt, after the obvious A-10 design he is modeled after. I may just keep going with my own personal version though

Considering the naming-trend of 3rd Party toys lately, I will be very disappointed if this one isn't named Astroglide.

In all serious, yay! Another Powerglide to add to my growing stable of Powerglides.
I like how they've done the arms - keeps them tucked under the wing nicely and adds double-jointed elbows.

Also this thread title should be changed to have a reference to Powerglide and iGear.

Hmmm what does Powerglide do with the Seekers whenever they meet in the air?

Dogfight
Bucket Head
wasn't there an autobot named dogfight?

if he takes the form of an A-10, perhaps THUNDERBOLT?

bucket
Pcm979
I suggest Thrustpipe.
Composite Ghost
Boner Champ.

How about name it: Unnecessary

this is great. I don't like the big headed maketoys version nor the floppy xtrsnsbot version nor hasbros version.
Master Blaster
hmm, now do I get this and sell the Xtransbots, or keep the Xtransbots and forget this....



I guess it depends on what stupid figure they pack it with.

I suggested the names in the thread of Dogfight and Dare Devil. =)

I was the third or forth person to post on the Facebook page but now I'm way down the list and it looks like I copied Greg. I did not, this is a matter of great minds thinking alike.

Dogfight is a cool name and its what he always did. And it infringes on nothing owned by anyone. 😜

Haven't seen the price yet...but that'll likely be his middle name.

Wasn't Dogfight a Triggerbot?
CZ Hazard


Probably the most attention Dogfight has had in years.
Megatron31
Cupid or electric sail
Predaking000
Not interested in the X-Transbot version (toy design stolen from Jizai, and floppy), and while I liked the MakeToys version, ultimately it was too small. So yeah, I'm interested in this.

As for names...as long as it's genital-related, it'll be consistent with those of the other 3rd-party toys and I'll be happy.
Scaleface
Considering Powerglide's personality, I say call him Ralph. ( Honeymooners reference.)
rosewater
As long as he's between Legend and Scout size, I don't care what you call him. Although "Thunderbolt" is both relevant and dope.
originaljk
Could use Warthog also. Or just shorten it to Hog. Rename the Maketoys one Wart with that big screw in the middle of his head.
jerminator
I suggested Superfly.

Well it looked like I was fourth too, but a lot of people were all posting at around the same time, so it time stamped every post in order.....

yes, the blue one on the left

Awesome. I've been looking for a good "small deluxe" Powerglide since watching a review that showed what a piece of crap the X-Transbots version is.
Thundershot
Dogfight's out since there is a G1 Dogfight already..:


Based on past Mini-Warrior names, I would say "Glide" would make the most sense..
Astronopolis
how about Red Gust?

Yeah, since other companies have gone the phallic route, iGear may as well jump in too.

My guess is they will call him "Enormous Genitals"
eriku
Reference his famous episode and call him Heart On.
Sidecutter
I had to give it a go..I suggested "Bombast".

How about ACE, The MW's like their single word names and Powerglide was an ACE in the skies.
Murasame
Forceslide
SG Roadbuster
Mr. Carlton Ritz
blueben
Just Glide will be nice.
AnegefalosGR
Heart Breaker
jedijoe
A-10 Thuderbolt?

KY Jelly? ...

K10 or K10 Thunder!

*see what i did thur!

but in all seriousness, im glad for this!!!

the powerglide from make toys SUCKED!!!!
unstable, undersized... when compared to the mini-warriors...Make-Toys "minis" just ..just suck!
lee9
Go back to the minibot size, and I'll call it "mine".
Master Blaster
I put Aviator, but I quite like Thunderbolt.
