Liokaiser, Galvatron, Delta Magnus, and The Fallen are catching my eye.
I'm hopeful we'll get Liokaiser soonish as well however Iron Factory also shared prototypes of Brawn, the Datsuns, and Inferno last year as well so it may be a toss up who comes first.
It's been a minute since I picked up anything Iron Factory, but I really like the look of their Breastforce, Fallen, and Leadfoot.
i'm sort of not seeing how this new "core" bot will fit the armour. isn't the original minimus figure much smaller??
What if the initial truck is removed (hence someone noting the "ears" of truck mode missing) and the new core robot folds up and takes the place of it?
Or, since the initial truck is essentially a cage for Minimus to slot into, there could be a new "cage" that just holds the new figure.
Just guessing obviously.
okay change the armour to take the original truck cab out and redesign it to hook up to the new magnus truck cab mold and it transforms to bot and filler for the armour? it would also need to include the armour head as that was part of the original truck cab. still can't see that happening as the head looks to be bigger than the chest of the new magnus mold. unless that's a parts forming piece.
Not sure how much I like the heads on the Breastforce guys but I also don't know how many years out Haslab Liokaiser is, so definitely interested in that. Doubt the full set costs under 200 though...
Looks like the Fem Seeker retools of Slipstream will be the first to drop from the 2023 lineup: Iron Factory Shrike's Feather (Slipstream)
Makes sense that they're easy enough to bang out in a hurry, since they're mostly a repaint along with the new heads.
Primal and Cheetor - Definitely getting both. They’ll look cool next to my nemesis Lio Convoy.
Lambros - So happy they’re making new ones! I was never able to track down Sideswipe and Red Alert for fair prices, and these look even better. They appear more articulated and they convert into the Lamborghini Veneno (based on the grill shape) or something similar. I have the original Sunstreaker, but will likely get the new one.
Lockdown - Already have the original, but will get this new one. Digging the AOE-inspired head.
DJD X - Want to get them, but they might get cut if other figures take priority.
Galvatron - I bought Newage’s toy-colored Galvatron months ago to have that color scheme. It’s a great figure, but I still prefer the IDW design. If I’d known IF was gonna repaint theirs, I would’ve waited lol. But yeah, buying.
Leadfoot - Maybe. The vibrant colors are nice, just no character attachment.
Orion Pax mold - These look great and I’d love an actual Orion Pax. Looks like an homage to the Generations deluxe. I wish it was a little taller though…it’s smaller than the lambros. As of now, will get both.
SG Ultra Magnus - I adore the original Maximus Ambus figure, it’s one of IF’s best figures to date. I’m super tempted by this, but idk if I need it; unless I could repurpose it as another character. Gonna attempt to resist for now, but I’ll probably fail and buy it lol. Looks so badass.
Fallen 2.0 - Speaking of badass, this is probably one I’m most excited for. The original IF Fallen is dope, but it’s a remold of Megatron and I never enjoyed the squared off hips bc it hindered articulation sometimes. Also, he’s small; the Fallen should be properly large and have his own mold. So I hope this one’s a knockout. The chest seems a little rounded, but hopefully looks better in person. Seems like they’ll paint the eyes and mouth this time, which is nice bc the original looked dead with the translucent plastic. The flame effects are a welcome addition. Hopefully they don’t use clear plastic for the joints.
Good set of reveals for 2023. I’m hyped. Keep the legends IDW stuff coming, IF. Please
Looking forward to grabbing those Samurai Lambros. Hard to believe that there is STILL only one option for Sunstreaker at this scale.
Are we sure this is a 'Fallen 2.0' and not 'Iron Samurai Megatronus'?
Given it doesn't look much like the Samurai figures I'm gonna say... It's a bigger version of The Fallen.
That's what I'm hoping, just seemed an odd release...
Wow. Somehow I’d mixed this original reveal. So many great figures! Given I missed out on the first lambros, they’re probably the idea I’m most excited about.
I’m surprised about Red Alert. That doesn’t appear be any sort of samurai variant, so why do a new version of a third-tier character like that? Are they trying to homage his later Lost Light design?
I’m a bit disappointed they haven’t revealed a new Optimus Prime figure. I passed on the first mold. It looked cool, but it seemed a bit limited. I’m hoping it won’t be too long before they try a new one to their current standards.
Yeah, I can’t believe I want another Optimus (given that we probably all have dozens if not hundreds of versions of him), but it does feel like IF could afford to take another stab at the character. Their first one is getting a little older now, and is hard to get these days.
Selfishly I just want one so that they can repaint it into an SG version. I skipped IF Mirrored Commander and regret it now that they have that great-looking SG Magnus coming out.
Oh that's awesome! I'm interested in primal, cheetor, the fallen, leadfoot, and lio kieser!
They could always just rerelease him, that would selfishly be my preferred option. I'd much rather have a God Ginrai than an Optimus Prime ( I actually only have one Optimus, the Siege PF one).
Wow initially i had hopes that liokaiser would come out this year but i highly doubt it now.
-pipes is coming soon
-djd squad reissue.
-the carbots EX-63 redecos
-brawn/outback and finally
-ratchet samurai (ironhide redeco)
I guess im just hoping for new images for the breast force by december
