    I see the name. That doesn't tell me the quality of the figure, scale, or if people like it

    There's plenty of reviews, and searching the name of TFW should help as well.

    SXS Rodimus is not legends scale. So he doesn’t scale at all, with these figures.

    Quality is well enough. Not as hardy as MMC’s plastic; but I prefer SXS’ Rodimus vastly over MMC’s, for looks/accuracy wise. MMC’s alt mode is better, though.

    He scales with voyagers - just like MMC’s IDW/Reformatted line. You could also stick him with “MP sized” IDW stuff as well; considering MP Car bot size is voyager size.

    Nah. That's SXS Rodimus, and stands at about 20cm, which is about double IF's scale. From what I've heard, QC is questionable.

    But you gotta admit it looks gorgeous. IF is bound to release a rodimus, but I doubt it's soon given the backlog.

    Not a real beast-mode fan, but Leo Convoy and Dragon Megs look astounding and are on my hit list.

    Leo Convoy is clearly their *best* Samurai figure. And by a long shot.

    Well, given that only two of IF's Samurai line has been released, it's not much competition for best samurai figure when going up against their fiddly and fragile Bludgeon.

    Well they already released their trans metal primal. I don't think there is plan further than that so you shouldn't wait ;)

    Decided to take the plunge and ordered Merak and Heat Death, time to get in on the legends train.

    That would probably be the 2021 SCG exclusive. Just a random guess.

    I originally only did this as a fun "what-if" thing, but after redoing it it didn't actually look that bad,

    It could work, with enough retooling, they have done some good retools before, would mainly need new head, hands, feet and wings, but the rest isn't far off.

    If they could chop off the wings, retool the head, ditch the gauntlets, make the feet more anime, retool the chest. And give him a sword that turns into a miniship, toss in some wheels, yeah, it could work. Sounds like a lot, but it might be a lot of fun reminiscent of funpub

    nice edit...personally i think dai atlas would be a much better option for a remold than a space ape.

    I'd forgotten Dai atlas existed tbh, yeah it would work better, much more in line with how IF handles retools.

    Kinda like the idea of a buff Star Saber though, like his equivalent to Magnus' upgraded armour.

    It was the shoulders and transformation that I thought was familiar.

    I also hope to have that "space ape" arrive in the post this week or next.
