    So far MS has shown us Cyclonus, Stunticons and Devastator.
    Newage has shown a Shockwave that transforms into a car

    Can anyone share pics of how the Magic Square bigger guys (trailbreaker, inferno, etc) scale with Iron Factory Prime and carbots? I mean, they're awesome and I'm getting them either way, just curious how it's going to look...

    Interesting. So both MS lines are scaled the same and are all original designs?

    Their Magnus and Blaster are under the MS line and they look like KOs of Magic Square

    all of MFT/HS bots are all scaled together and legends + is their thing. but they have upscaled some of the earlier DX9 bots and IF. they make great toys and the price is very easy on the pocket to boot.

    Yeah, that's why I asked. Don't really want to buy KO, even if they're from 3P. Thanks for the info, though!

    if you have a moral reason for not buying a KO that's cool for you. but don't skip on the MFT bots if you are worried about their quality. they are some of the best made figures around period and all their upsized molds are superior to the original bots. with the engineered fixes and what not. then you toss in the bonuses and it is any easy decision.

    plus the jury is still out if they have side deals on the bots they did produce.

    Yeah, I noticed Springer was their first and that it was under the Mech Souls line, which is what sparked the interest in the rest of their MS toys. The Springer specifically looks pretty neat.

    I've heard great things about MFT, so it's totally not a concern over quality! It's more of a moral thing.

    Visually, MFT and NA are the best I've seen legends wise. IF to futuristic and MST auto modes like red alert, sideswipe look choppy and certain pieces stick out (not clean/ smooth)

    More to pick from MFT, but bigger.
    NA smaller scale and detail awesome but not much to purchase yet.

    However tho, if your worried about "KO" then check out Magic square because they have a whole G1 line coming and their decepticon list is coming soon

    that's crazy because the last thing i would ever call the MFT dinos is weak and floppy. they are just as scary tight as the DX9 bots. it is a shame you must have got a dud.

    i know my sludge had his defective knee but even then he was crazy tight.

    Hey guys I'm absolutely new to legends scale (and almost to collecting transformers) could you recommend me a good optimus and megatron? And could you please write the brand name as I'm not familiarized with any of them, also I don't mind knockoffs :)

    Well, for anyone pissed off because they can't find older IF figures, keep an eye out...

    I got laid off this morning.

    I'm not in a dire situation yet, but not sure how much I"ll be able to collect until I have a new job.

    And I'm going to start selling off parts of my CHUG collection that are no longer on display... but who knows how long it will take to get back to work. Might have to start dipping into the good stuff for funds.
