    If you look at the front of the box it seems the transformation may be different & I'm guessing this is just trabsformed slightly wrong. ;) 

    I think he is a case of mistransformation. Maybe.

    .... do you mean the IDW lost light crew ship?

    Good call man. Its also kinda like the 2010 original War For Cybertron MEGATRON's alt mode too. Which is from the same continuity but earlier (well that Bruticus is from the 2012 game though, Fall of Cybertron). :)

    Very underwhelming for something that's supposed to be such an epic idea. Aren't thrusters normally in the back of the ship, or are those megaphones to announce to everyone in the universe how shitty he looks?

    ROTF Fallen and Ravage, totally agree. DOTM Laserbeak I actually thought had a decent VTOL mode.

    I bet when emgo reviews Iaconus is when he tries to say the name he'll say "Iacon" pause a bit and say "us" just like he done for Megatronus awhile back or not, but it would be funny though.

    I'm guessing he's so hollow in the back you can store the rest of your Cyberverse in there?

    So "Ultimate Ionocus", with a presumably ultimate retail price, transforms into... A crappy fan mode? :lol 

    The alt-mode is what a 7 yr old does with EVERY TF.

    Why do I see a 0079 Gundam chestplate on Iaconus' armor?
    Also, the armor is engineered better than I thoght. It hides in the back instead of hanging around the @$$.
    Well, I respect the reviewer for not raging.
    And about making a decent city mode: do you remember Sirenbuilder/Flashpoint Megazord?
    Just give this guy a similiar transformation of legs. Look: the shoulders lower, the legs collapse that way, and maybe you should be able to swing some A.I.R. Lock ramps from the shins...

    Gotta win the award for 'we think we can convince consumers he actually transforms into something'

    quite possibly the most abstract alt-mode since the ones made up for various Bay-verse characters that never transformed...

    I honestly think he was designed with the legs as the front of the ship mode but something was lost in the translation between the design team and the marketing team.

    This is my first post ever here. Been a TF Fan/collector since G1 back.....and this is literally the worst Transformer toy I’ve ever seen. I laughed for 5 minutes straight just looking at it.

    This is the toy equivalent of the ‘Cats’ movie. Hasbro, you should be ashamed!

    Because Drift expected a giant car.... I mean, Hasbro is getting too lazy with unorthodox alt-modes in their kids' lines. For ex. ALMOST EVERYONE IN RID WAS A CAR!!!!!!

    So, if we have a Titan who was at least implied to have a spaceship alt-mode (he traveled between planets), Hasbro gives him one. But because Hasbro is lazy, they just take Ultimate Shockwave and remold him a bit (or at least reuse the transformation and overall build). I mean transformation is the same as Shockwave's, the shield attaches in ship (?) mode the same as Shockwave's gun does. Just we can't make a proper figure for a prominent titan. The sword and shield are undersized, the legs are immobile (the first Ultimates had much more articulation/ aesthetic pleasure in them. The first Ultimate Prime even had KNEES!)...
    And Iaconus has ...... FAUX KIBBLE FOR A MODE THE FIGURE DOESN'T HAVE!!!!!!

    Guys, I had a horrible nightmare.... i was climbing mountains and then went to a dollar store to get some water, but I couldn't because when I took a water bottle, I had an Iaconus in my grasp... And no matter what I tried to buy, I ended up with an Iaconus in my hand......
