    You already have Helix, you want Tesarus ;) 

    And why does Bumblebee always end up being tortured, first he was the one getting electrified by Kaon in alt mode, now he's going into the smelting pool, when Tesarus arrives I expect him to be grinded to dust.

    Uuuuuugh this brings my stack to $145. Do I wait for another figure in my stack to come in stock, or do I find some cheap $6-$10 item to get my some free shipping.

    Depending on what you are collecting.

    I expect that within a week or two Newage will come out with toy Megatron or Starscream (can't remember what the date was on their Starscream Kings of the Hell poster).

    For Iron Factory Nemisis Prime should be also a few weeks away.

    Else...

    Any size comparisons with a Hasbro release toy like SS Bumblebee or Siege Flywheels?

    Man its fun ripping this guy apart for combined mode. I'm shocked at how well he holds together you almost can't tell he's a partsformer because of it.

    saw on facebook that it appears that Helex can combine with MakeToys The Fallen (and similar molds) parts? really adds on a lot of playability if true

    Figure it'd be fun to show off just how much Alkaid needs to be pulled apart. You certainly end up with quite the assortment of pieces once you pair em up with the existing ones too.

    With the current releases you can build the back and upper portion of the torso, have the forearms ready to go and complete the lower legs and feet.

    Interesting how IF's Tesarus doesn't seem to do nearly as much dividing. They really did just offload most of the work to Helex in that respect. Explains why these two guys have taken so long for IF to get done as their tolerances and all these pieces working just right has probably been a nightmare of testing for them. I really appreciate how well he holds together and I certainly hope the same can be said for Merak.

    Just got mine this morning but I seem to be missing replacement hands for his smaller arms. Not the end of the world but annoying. Legitimately the first Iron Factory toy I’ve had something wrong with

    Yeah I just emailed them now.

    He is such a solid figure for someone who breaks apart into dozens of bits. An absolute unit.
