No dates yet though.
Pics for those without Facebook -
c/o iGear's facebook page
And now we have Veer...
just beat me to posting this These look awesome though and cant wait to pick them up.
Sorry I cheaped out by posting only the link so I could get it on here ASAP
All 3 look great but the Cogz/Gears one is what I'm most excited about as it means that we'll finally have a complete set of series 1 minibots in some form.
they all look real nice, except beachcomber. something about the hollowed looking feet scream "legends class"
These look awesome, but after buying UFO and Hench, I really wish these were the same size as Spray and Rager. I don't remember if it was Seth or Vangelus that put it best on #223. They look great, and the engineering and articulation at Legends size is awesome, but once you up-size these to Scout size they are a bit of a letdown. At this size they should have better articulation and more complex engineering. I mean, judging by these pics, Cogz is almost full-on Deluxe size.
Yeah Gears looks great, Outback too (except for some reason I was thinking he had a remolded chestpiece - did I dream that?!), but BC is a let down. Not a write off, just a bit spindly in the robot department and a bit dragstery in the beach buggy area...
Gears is a definite buy. I have to see some height comparisons for Beachcomber to make a decision on him. Too bad there is going to be at least a 6 month wait for these.
This. Can't wait for Gears.....hopefully not long now.
EDIT - Gears alt mode is a bit bigger than Brawn's so I'm guessing a similar sized robot mode hopefully.
This. I really, really, reallly wish iGear would go back to the smaller scale. Look how ridiculous Cogz looks in truck mode at the huge scale! Dammit, I was so psyched about these, and now I might have to pass.
I'm still all for the newer upscaled sizes. These three are as food as bought but as others have mentioned, I'm not thrilled about Beachcomber's legs.
Why did they change Cogz head? It's looking stupid now.
And how ironic, now you guys want these smaller? Blame all the people with small penis syndrome in the fandom. Next thing you'll see is people asking for a house-sized Fort Max to live inside.
It looks pretty much the same to me. It may be a little more squat than the digital rendering, but pretty darn close. It will be hard to tell until we see a painted prototype. Also, I like the continuation of the cartoon/toy head turnaround gimmick.
I was all for the larger size when it was announced. I thought it would be cool to have these guys lined up with Classics BB and RTS Windcharger. But now that I have the larger ones in hand, I've changed my mind. It almost feels like when they do the oversized KO's of the legends figures.
cool but c'mon igear what about impactor
I don't want them smaller. They look perfect next to the new MP scale now....I just wish they'd make Huffer this size now too.
I hope they fix up Cogz face. Proto doesn't look that great compared to the colored image. But I'll give it time. Still very interested though. Love the G1 look!
In the vehicle-mode pic, does Beachcomber's rifle have a flower in its barrel? That's pretty awesome!
Only one I'm really excited for is Gears.
Gears looks awesome!
Outback looks great too, I loved Brawn so it's an easy buy.
Beachcomber is a massive disappointment. I'll need to see finished pictures and get a size comparison with maybe RtS Windcharger before I'm on board.
I'm so glad I decided to give this line a miss... Or I'd have to buy all of them lickety-split. They're awesome!
