    I was thinking actually that their arcee mold could be repurposed yet again as Nickle and their tiny Steeljaw in a grey deco could be the pet. Release those two in a combo pack for ~$25.

    If they do Nickel and the pet, I’d imagine they would retool the Minimus Ambus they just showed off to make it.

    As for Nickel, her transformation is hardly complex. At that size, I might even ALMOST accept no transformation at all.

    Just release them as a little two pack, job done :)

    oh wow, never knew he had one. i found the below photo but its from Lost Light #14 and i left off at MTMTE. i dont know they ever showed it. or maybe thats why its all crunched up when megatron kills him, i had been assuming it was from the dark matter or whateverr.

    As nice as that Megs is looking, it's not his MTMTE design.

    How do others purchase IF figures? Preorder or eBay flash sales? I’m excited for the 2019 lineup starting with Tarn but have never gotten an official IF upon release. Do they sell out within a month or two if hot?

    the new ones dont sell out as much as IF is weird with their shipping system. but if you want any of the new bots. i would say it is safe bet that they will be readily available for almost all of next year.

    but after that you are taking a gamble and you either find it at retail or just go secondary market. but no matter what you will still be able to find the bot you want.

    Milne drew a clearer pic of his face and posted it on Twitter last year. Cause yeah we found out he's always had big ugly scarring on it once Milne revealed what his face looks like.

    Tarnface.jpg

    And in LostLight we got a flashback scene where he took off his mask, clearly based on Milne's twitter drawing.

    Flames Kurokari figure to date has the most accurate Tarn face.

    15-800x800__79995.1522915591.1280.1280.jpg

    Still hoping we can make a new head for Kultur to update our figures face finally since our original is based on the old Roller identity rumor and is very out of date.

    thats not the correct megatron to go with Tarn, I'm personally wanting something based on the MTMTE design so they can be correctly posed together.

    for me personally i think all he needs is just the small scroll work on his chest and the autobot sign and he is tip tops in my book. so this new megs is great as far as i am concerned.

    Agree but I not sure we’ll ever see it. I see 3 different heads but even with a mtmte head the body wouldn’t be right. Mmc slugged that one out of the park, bot mode anyway.

    Oh, yea, I was just posting their Megs.

    From the waist down sure but the arms are all wrong. No shoulders and cylinders for arms made it an easy pass for me.
