    I don't think we'll see it anytime soon. My guess -atm- is that IF will either continue their Iron Samurai line (which might be less likely the more they see the fans not excited for it), continue their IDW line with "missing" characters (we still haven't seen a Rodimus and their Prime is a bit old) or maybe try something new altogether. All in all, I doubt they'll do it an original character like the one above, as good as it looks.

    I'd like to see IF tackle LSotW, namely shrink down PE's Warden, another, much larger Evil Lord and a few more from the Lost Light (Rodimus, Tailgate, Swerve, Roller and Skids) before they focus too much more on the Iron Samurai series.

    A new windblade in the samurai line please! Makes too much sense so might not happen.

    There are wonderful oversized KO’s of Overlord (he even comes with a IDW face), Black Shadow and Six Shot. What’s great is, they now look in scale and proper with the rest.

    They have all replaced my smaller official ones.

    I forgot about the wreckers! That'll definitely make fans drool and is such an easy choice. Although it might be too much to ask, but if they made them combine then my wallet is going to be in a poor state.

    I agree about overlord. The bot mode isn't bad, but there's too much partsforming, enough to warrant a revisit.

    I broke my Dubhe hip cup. Is there any sort of support for buying replacement parts when it's my fault it broke? It wore out quickly from normal play. I guess that's why these aren't toys but high end 16+ collectables lol

    So during its second transformation my heat deaths leg snapped off. Anyone else have this happen? I was just moving the joint to widen the hips for dragon mode. Nothing rough or anything. Does iron factory do replacement parts or am I at the mercy of my retailer for a replacement figure? PXL_20210411_021433504.jpg PXL_20210411_020926625.jpg PXL_20210411_020920637.jpg

    damn, sorry to hear that. there's a few reports of this happening in the main Heat Death thread, but none recently. time and process may vary depending on who you bought it from, but reach out to your seller and ask for a replacement and you'll get sorted out.

    I think there are a local 3rd seller say they could get replacement part if buy from them. didn't try buy from him though.
    I think you could use cement and fix it yourself. it is effective. could be as good as new

    I would have "appreciated" an IF Deep Cover repaint, but as that's not likely to happen any time soon tried my hand at a custom one from G2 Sideswipe

    About time! Haha
    This looks sweet - great to see them working through the backlog and getting more cool IF stuff out into the world. Waiting (patiently?) for Powerglide :p
