    This really makes me want them to do an updated version of normal IDW Ultra Magnus with an updated cab that looks much more like the cab of Maximus Ambus.

    They shall be Blackzarack's Cityspeaker.

    Iron Factory older releases are highly sought after and basically impossible to find. And if you do find an EBay listing for anything pre-2018, it's gonna be over $100.

    I got all my IF figured from ebay during the height of the shutdown in the pandemic last year from ebay. People were selling them $20 each. So I got about 35 of them. I think I bought over 150 figure all together last year. People were selling entire collections. The pandemic was so beneficial to my collection, and I know people selling must of needed that money badly, glad I was able to help them out.

    Truth be told. I’d prefer a Magic Square or MFT styled Sunstreaker, Mirage, and Wheeljack but Iron Factory is the only game for certain characters (I know Toyworld did wheeljack, but it was pretty out of date engineering-wise)

    I can't believe the audacity of this seller. Those prices are insane and quite frankly the figures aren't worth that much. I just bought prime last week for $300 w/elita one and black arcee. And his asking prices are gonna encourage others to raise the already high prices on these figures.

    I don't even know how you could come to the conclusion they are worth that. The last set of asura knights was under $500. How can you price them that way with a straight face

    If anyone's looking for that Drift, I sell for low price of $499.99. You like.

    Those prices are wild, especially when you consider that IF Drift is a really good robot but a terrible alt mode, and IF Prime looks good but it has its own limitations aplenty.

    I wonder if I could sell my Prowl for $500? Better yet, trade me FT Stomp for IF Prowl!

    How weird. Several eBay sellers trying to sell IF Hound for over $100 now. Hoping to get people thinking it's the MP Hound KO?

    Hi, is this the original Bridge Watcher (or its 1:1 KO) or the MFT upscale? I was under the impression that Bridge Watcher was about the same height as the seekers, which in turn were about a head shorter than Tyrant.

    There's also a Pocket Toys KO at the same size, but I don't know what the differences are.

    Also that is definitely not the OSKO, I have it and it's clearly bigger than IF Megs.
