How do you like Powerglide?
that wasn't addressed to me. but i have had this figure since it dropped or whatever. but i really like him and he is a super cool fig.
A really cool little guy.
Powerglide under amphets
Some rotating parts are very thin, I do not go like a nag and it goes well.
Iron Factory, gunna get ya, no matter how far~ (ahead they announce their releases .^. )
Won't you run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high!
I think @DashCourageous was referring more to the fact that because the delay was 2 years he's upset he lost his money and his figure by preordering on ebay. Not that he was mad there was a delay caused by ppl dying.
Anyways love this phantom, blends in pretty good amongst my g1s until MS tackles mirage but will stay in my collection afterwards. Thinking about picking up the stealth version as well.
I noticed something a bit odd with regard to what Iron Factory makes and doesn't make.
They like the "seeker" repaints loads.
But they don't seem to think about repaints for some of their other moulds.
So for example they made Exhaust but not Slicer from their Wheeljack mould.
They made a Jazz but didn't use that mould to make someone else like Richochet/Stepper or someone like Jackpot or Kickoff - or even Shockwave no G2 Jazz either.
Mirage has a few potential repaints that has not seemed to be jumped on yet.
Hound would be a shoe in for Detritus.
No sign of Cordon or Spin out yet.
or various other Sideswipe repaints.
No SG Drift as yet
I would also think a simplified release of Scourge would make sense too. as the existing release arguably works better as "Sweeps" anyway.
Perhaps a 2 pack with an alternative colour Cyclonus would be a good idea ?
I would hope they revist Blaster as a character too so that there is something to complement Soundwave. Also I think we could do with another Optimus or two as well.
I think I know what would really suit their house style - "Armada Optimus Prime".
I do also think that their might want to make a gift set of the IDW decepticon combiner too.
But in general I think mixing in some reissues is a good idea when they can as the line attacks new people all the time and I'm sure a lot of new collectors would like a 'second chance' on some of the stuff.
Oh and here is an idea for a character for them... "Shadow Striker" I think she'd fit in well.
Have a small favor to ask. Anyone able to share a pic of phantoscope with city commander 44? (The big guy)
I'm rearranging my collection and put a shelf for an action seen with some of my older if figures. I think it turned out great! Gotta get some lights and get better at taking photos but oh well. Would have added the pocket toys bruticus to this scene but its too floppy and not possible really at all (at least by me)
looks like powerglide was able to recruit voltron to join the IF autobot crew on his flight over…
Love it. May I ask what Voltron that is? Thanks!

alt and "gerwalk" mode…
Since no one beat me to it, it pleases me to be the first;
First of all, I didn't expect a new line-up so soon. Not that I'm complaining.
Was really hoping for a new combiner, but didn't expect Lio Kaiser, would've loved Computron. Also, it seems that they toned down the samurai aesthetic a bit, maybe they didn't expect criticisms from the fans. I actually like the inferno and co look. Samurai-sh, but I still like them.
The datsuns are a surprise. Most of us already expected a Prime 2.0 and a Blaster 2.0, but I didn't think we'd get new Datsuns. Fans who missed out will be pleased, as these still look cool.
Just my thoughts on the whole thing.
Loving the new line-up shown off.
Really hoping we get some Wreckers in the near future, I need IF Roadbuster, Springer and Whirl.
I appreciate Iron Factory.
Also hoping we get some Autobot Combiners sooner or later.
Your display reminds me that I really regret hesitating and missing out on Sunstreaker. At least I was able to get the black version of Sideswipe.
