    Hi everybody! Finally I decided to complete my G1 Legend scale collection but I saw a lot of models. Which brand you recommend me? I love New Age by the details and modeling, but there aren't all the characters. Also, I saw announces of new releases from a lot of brands and I don't know which ones I should buy, or If I have to wait a little bit more.

    Now I have:
    - Grimlock MFT
    - Megatron MFT
    - Bumblebee NewAge
    - Bumblebee Hearts of Steel MFT
    - Cosmos NewAge
    - Optimus OS DF4 Jinbao (well, in coming)

    And I was planning to buy:
    - Jazz NewAge
    - Prowl NewAge
    - Ghost Starscream DX9

    Also I want the rest of the dinos, Ratchet, Ironhide, Shockwave, Soundwave, Bruticus and Omega Supreme. Do I have to wait new releases?.

    this is where hours and hours of pouring over pictures, and watching reviews work. we can give you advice but at the end of the day it's mostly up to you what you would end up buying. you ask me personally, I'd prefer to get the rest of the MFT Dinobots - which is being shipped to me anytime now, as well as HS Ratchet and Ironhide, because they scale properly with my HS Prime, and the rest of my incoming carbots from Magic Square. I'm not sure how tall, or short, Newage Ratchet, and Ironhide is, but judging how small their carbots are, I say Jinbao Prime might be a tad big for them.

    Thanks, I saw hours and hours of reviews, but the MFT Dinos... I don't know what happens with Sludge, it's VERY hard to find (I have Grimlock metallic version, but not the rest of the dinos, I prefer the metallic ones). I had in my hands Ratchet and Ironhide HS, and the quality it's very "toy", I don't like it. I will investigate a little bit more to see what I find. Thanks.

    For pretty much all legends(+) toys you want to get, start here:

    3rd Party Legends Master Thread

    That is the best listing you can find for what toys are available (or coming some day) for each character. The list also links to the individual threads on tfw2005 for each toy. Then it’s just deciding scale/style/price/date.

    I dunno where better to ask this, but what's up with this 'new' listing for PE's 'Shadow Warrior' Targetmaster Rumble?
    Shadow Warrior PE-01R

    Is PE known for doing second runs of stuff? Is this gonna be another series of them (now that I finished the quartet of this mold a couple months back)?

    Nice.

    I'm still sitting on TW Exhaust, IF Mirage, Megatron, Tarn, G2 Sideswipe, and non legends MT Buster Stealthwing (stealth Jetfire/Black Shadow).

    I usually just ship when I run out of time.
    This gives me time to mess with what I already have.

    Oh my goodness, I might just order the crappy DX9 Arcee to go with this set!

    The DX9 should be about the same size.

    I wish the set came with that mannequin bot in the earlier picture.

    I’m glad that IF have the balls to do something different!

    That’s what I want to know too. I was hoping it was a prop that came with the set.

    Worse comes to it, someone who buys it can 3D print off a generic bot from the comics to make that prop.

    Any of you 3D printer types wanna take a crack at it?
