    It's a shame, because I ended up liking the designs of the figures much more than I expected, the QC stuff puts a damper on things. As irresponsible as it may seem, I may get the OG IF Bruticus.

    The foot hinge is very loose, any idea how to tighten it? no pins are visible.

    Oof, getting the OG would be a wallet bummer indeed. I've been meaning to tighten some joints on my PT figs, mainly Brawl's knees and ankles, but haven't gotten around to it yet. My Swindle is in alt mode atm so unfortunately I can't get a great look at that part of his ankle. One thing I'll say about that fig is that it's my least favorite to transform, haha.

    IF oughta rerelease some of their earlier but not quite old scale figures, besides, ya know, reproducing their old accessory bits separately, please, IF, please. :oops: 

    Still, I think Ruination might still be available at some spots, too… probably because people are less attached to that color scheme. :rolleyes:

    I agree about Swindle, especially how the headlights keep popping off for me, it's confusing why they're even detachable. The ankle I meant, btw, is the foot accessory, not on Swindle himself.

    Yeah, G2 colors I found available for like 150$ on AliE. Haven't had as much luck with OG, though I'm betting it's above 200 easily.

    Thanks to McGiggles, I've got a few more in the set. And as Potchez knows, those Heavy Metal figures blend in quite well.

    I've got the regular release of those shapeshift inc figures with my if figures and they look great! Still trying to find the spec ops version though

    Oooooh, haha, my bad. I don’t think mine has any issues there. It’s actually been partially dismembered for a while now because its new shelf is, uh, height restricted, haha

    Hey man if you still need TC don't sell your other kidney, he can be had for a mere $30 and change:
    Transformer toy Iron Factory IF-EX20B Wind of Tyrant Thundercracker Mini figure

    Baba is extremely reliable, I buy from their shop often and have never had an issue.

    EDIT: Baba also still has the lowest price I've seen around for the latest seeker Phantoscope, $31.99. Just FYI.

    I don't think they've ever reissued any release.

    If the past is any indication it never gets cheaper. But some things do pop up such as recolors if you liked a certain mold. Best example was Cygnus (and the recolor is gorgeous).

    Huh, congrats. Almost as good a deal as I got on eBay for mine. Got it and an IF Leo Convoy for all of $36 together plus shipping.

    With no news on Soundwave - do we think he’s being reworked? Why such a long delay on him compared to the other figures?
