    Speedo is an incredible figure and very underrated imo. Does kups face look a bit small or is it his shoulders that look big?

    i like this guy, feel like they did a good job capturing the character.
    that said, theres something that iron factory has that dx9 doesnt, but i cant put my finger on what it is.
    is it me or does it seem like most of these redone legends figs are pretty much the same size in botmode?

    The DX9 stuff just doesn't have all the details that the Iron Factory stuff has. The DX9 stuff is straight out of the cartoon as much as possible (from what I can see). They are just way more simple and way less flashy.

    as discussed in other dx9 and IF threads, we sort of agreed on the following (i think we did?)

    IF plastic captures detail better. but is more prone to stress fractures and joint loosening (issues with evil lord leg pegs are common, and blasters crotch keeps breaking <he has little patience??>)

    DX plastic is more durable, resistant (apart from issues with medilance) and to me it seems it might have a component of gum with the plastic.

    As to style, Dx9 are g1 inspired with a preference to the cast of the 1986 movie? IF have used IDW designs for almost everything (even the dreanwave dynobots have appeared in that design in IDW stories)

    That's pretty damn impressive given how small this figure is supposed to be!

    Fake chest, windshield alert! Obviously acceptable at this scale.

    It probably would have been easier to do the chest windshield than the way they did it... I don't mind the fake windshield, only thing is he has nice curves is bot mode and then a blocky alt.

    Still more to like than loathe.

    I think Dx9 have allot of cofidence since doing Hulkie, i look forward to what is down thr line.

    Speedo is my favorite. I love all the poses he can hold. Running, fighting, pretty much anything you can imagine.

    Hard to tell about his head until I see some pictures next to DX9's other releases.

    edit: forgot about the shot with the black Arcee prototype. Blurr is at an angle, but it looks like the heads all scale well with each other.

    I missed out on Speedo and Gartanel. Anyone know if there's one for sale, new or second-hand?

    The other thing IF does better is the accessories. Even without their weapon packs included with sets like UM, Six Gun & Slammer and Blaster they include a lot of extras like Perceptor's extra head or Ultra Magnus's hammer. Normally the DX9 guys come with about one weapon.

    Or no weapon in the case of Plague. At least this guy gets a blaster which is about all he needs anyway.

    Kup I would like but not that bothered about Arcee in this scale. Might have to keep an eye on eBay after release.

    Dx9 should do the triple changers in legends. They have the transformation cleverness, detail, and attention to accuracy to pull them off. Toon accuarte astrotrain, blitzwing and springer to name a few... Imagine.

    Kup is turning out to look pretty spiffy. Can't wait to get him on my shelf with Blurr, Ironhide & IF's UM.
    I could imagine them tackling Springer pretty easily. We haven't seen any new reveals this year outside of Kup. They have to be planning their next couple of figures.
