Oh this whole set is looking awesome. I’m excited to have little DJD figures.
This thing is AWESOME! I WANT IT!!!
You know I think you're right, and here I thought I'd figured out where tarn went. He probably just slots into the chest to fill in the hole left when tes ftes splits open to combine, then fold what's left into a backpack
Did someone say my name........oh god whats that thing? Those colors are horrendous!
It's the 5 of these guys
combined into this guy
Want it. Badly. Desperately.
Prolly not going to combine them. Still need the little bots though. This will be the only scale I have DJD in.
I'm hoping to at the very least get Vos and Kaon from this set, I've wanted the MMC versions for a while but Vos' breakage-to-price-ratio is a dealbreaker for me. I hope this version of Vos' handle has a 5mm adapter so I can have my MMC Tyrantron and Kultur wield him.
That's a negative on the 5mm. It's the same tabs as their Shockwaves so that everything is cross compatible between DJD and Bruticus.
Don't IF figures usually come with a bunch of little accessories? I could see them packing in an adapter so their other smaller figures could hold him. They use 5mm ports for most of them, right? I don't have any IF figures yet...
Well, I dunno... I think in this case, the 'little accessories' are going to be various fist options for the smaller figures... 5mm fist, closed fist, fingers spread, etc.
But I don't see Vos being held by any of the smaller figures, he's scaled to be held by the gestalts, hence the different handle. So even with an adapter, he'd look kinda silly with a regular bot.
I was very much thinking about getting this, but now Im thinking I’ll wait for a Repaint that has the Combined Mode as the Paint Focus. I dont read IDW and only know these characters from what Ive read here on the boards and seen on Youtube. These are cool bots. I dont need their character colors to be accurate to the source material.
@Superquad7 or @Jacer , can you give @foxracing news cred for this? He posted pics a while ago:
iron factory DJD
Looks great. It’ll be cool to see this fighting bruticus and ruination.
Suggestion? If you like the single characters, get them now. Iron Factory prices sky rocket after the first few months and after a year it becomes almost impossible to find them.
Definitely picking these guys up, but I'm liking the individual bots better than the combined mode. Tarnation? Mega-Tarn? What are we calling this again?
I use Mega-Tarn because it's easy to remember, but what makes the most sense is something based off 'Ursa Major'.
All of the individual bots are named after stars in the big dipper... Alkaid, Mizar, Dubhe, etc. So something like 'Ursatron Major' could be cool.
the combiner is just an added bonus to me, just more fun that they can combine, but individual bots is what this set shine the most , in before IF throws in an enigma of combination accessory
Now I want to start a 3P Legends collection. I don't even read IDW comics but a DJD Combiner has me hooked. Damn you, IF.
