    Does anyone have both pocket toys and if bruticus that can lend an eye to quality? I have the pocket toys version and it gets stress marks really easily and all over the place. The grey cannot piece in onslaught's back is falling apart, as are the helicopter blades. And somehow there are stress marks where the purple cannons peg into the combined mode back. Is the if version worth upgrading to or should i just keep the pt one and not transform it often?

    I have both. PT has less plastic quality than IF.
    Got problems too. Broken pieces.
    I don't combine the PT. No problem with the IF on mine.

    Only comparison I've seen is from this video


    according to it the difference in quality is at most negligible, but considering your experience it might be some differences figure-to-figure. (also it's half the price!)

    Finally got my hand on 2 of these guys (namely the Samurai Series) and boy am I IMPRESSED with them. Super fun to pose with articulation that gives MP-scale figures a run for their money! I can't wait for more of them to come out!

    Seeing Newage and Magic Square's Cliffjumper makes me really appreciate IF's take. I'm not into toon-accuracy since I never grew up with G1 but the robot mode looks real nice with MOMA!

    Agree! IF takes so much heat for “poor alt modes” but here we have the other 2 major legends designers with misses (in my opinion). NA Galvatrons feet sticking out in alt mode, the laughable alt modes for the SG Megatron and Straxus remolds, feel free to add any others... :)

    But are the majority of people buying them for thier collection displaying them in their alt mode or the bot mode because most posts i see are their in bot mode so Sg megs alt mode isn’t a bother to me because me personally I’ll never have him in it

    I always play them or keep them all in a big box with other toy. So both form is important.
    IF alt mode overall is hit or miss.
    Megatron tank mode is unbearable, Drift and Tarn have their hand stick out etc.
    But the bot with earth alt is legit good

    only IF figures i have that i remotely think are good ALTS are BW TM2 Meg/Cryotek, Mirage and CJ. also have KO of shockwave and that's good. Ultra Magnus, Lio Convoy, Bludgeon and most of the individual combaticons are "okay". anything else is a complete wash for me. :p

    I know, Help little to nothing though.
    It is not how it designed to look and doesn't make it look any less weird . Would just look not like anything like Megatron.

    Wonder what the chances are of IF tackling this design.

    Probably 0% chance given it's MMC's own design and not from the comics :D

    Even if it was okay (which is always a little grey with 3rd party) there are soooooo many characters from the idw comics that I would like to see (rung and skids to name a few) before a female tarn
    And it's not a repaint or remold but a brand new design so....hard pass for me
