    Yeah thats the 1 :)  In tfs express, the releases of scourge, this and cyclonus were slated for June. But knew that was BS when I saw that so its 1 of cyc/galvy. Either way im still happy with either in July/august.

    With the pictures on their Weibo page I expect the next figure will be IF EX-45M Kagami Shisgimaru not SG Leo Prime.

    My apologies!

    Iron Factory does seem to do a new mold/remold after a recolor so Galavtron or Cyclonus would be nice but I've been waiting for Soundwave since February 2019. It's time to finish up and close the book on 2019.

    IF might also be reacting to other company releases and their preorder numbers. IE, both NA and MS have released Soundwave legends that everyone and their mother have one or both of, NA released a Galvatron that is very well received... they might have info on numbers that tell them those guys aren't viable or as lucrative to produce now, compared to others in the lineup.

    (I know the style is different, but for some, one representative is enough of each guy, let alone two or three.)

    Yeah but IF isn’t in competition with MS and NA. MS and NA are pure 1980’s G1. IF has their own market with IDW style designs and the new shogun era stuff is in a league of their own. No one is doing that.

    I know. But at the same time, people like myself were buying IF to fill holes in the G1 collection... but were, say, a Hound, Mirage and Wheeljack available through NA, I might not have bit the IF ones. I can't be the only one. So for some, the are absolutely in competition.

    yeah, I have IF Mirage and IF Jetfire just waiting to be replaced my MS. I already replaced IF Shockwave with MS. I *almost* grabbed IF hound too, but decided to wait it out.

    Never understood the idea of buying something just to fill a hole.

    well sometimes the bots are pretty cool. but a suitable replacement could be many years down the line. it all works out in the grand scheme of things for most.

    i dont know if this was posted already or not.

    but this blitz right here is fucking sweet as hell. now this if the blitzwing that we should have gotten. i am not sure who the company is or who they arent. but this looks like an updated G1 take on the IF bot. and it gives me a very IF blitzwing feel.

    whoever this is i am a buyer for sure. the bot is 12cm as well.

    shout outs to @daimchoc for the photos.

    I was about to order the MFT Blitzwing then these pics show up today.

    I have a poor eye for detail. Can you elaborate on why you think this mold is superior to the MFT one?

    everything is better than the MFT mold to me personally. the torso has a nice taper and this bot actually has a waist and hips. not that hinged fanny pack looking thing.

    then you can see how the limbs just fit better on this bot. i have always had an issue on about how lanky the MFT blitz looks. i think the proportions look much better on this bot and at 12 cms he will look great next to MFT astrotrain.

    On top of that just looks more aggressive and stylized than just blocks for limbs
