    Tarnation looks so good I want two sets of these guys although I can’t afford it, because the individual bot modes are exellent too and I just can’t choose how to display them. It’s the pain of owning Catastrophe only x10. Why are they doing this to us.

    The paupers solution is to get a second Tarn and display him and the smol ones in bot mode, throw some other weapons on Tarnation and pretend he’s just a combiner of two.

    Speaking of Tarn, I hope IF does a Glitch repaint with empurata head.

    Amen!

    Hope that if IF does Glitch they remold him a little bit more than what MMC did, not just a recolor and a new head but also the claw hands. Can't remember if I ever saw his original head and hands in the comics or you would also have a Damus.

    Huh. No we never saw Damus. And Glitch didn’t have Tarns frame so it wouldn’t be spot on anyway. But, the MMC one was presumably a SG Glitch that joined the villainous Autobots and, I guess, replaced the claws as it made paperwork, over the top torture difficult. Or you can interpret the MMC asterisk as a normal ’verse Tarn that stayed loyal to Megatron, repainted himself into his old Autobot colours and now flies around the galaxy apologizing to everyone on Megatron’s behalf.

    This is the most impressive partsformer / combiner I've ever seen.

    I'd love to see someone make the combiner with only Helex and Tesarus... Tarn maybe provides a little structural stability in the back... but nothing else plugs into him, so you don't really need him to make the big bot...

    that's super involved and a bit intimadating if i hadn't started out with Fansprojects and Maketoys craziness, this should be a piece of cake, can't wait to see someone post pics of Dubhe, Kultur, and Tarnation together comparison pics

    Am I just stupid? I never noticed the back panel that flips down to take Tarn for combined mode, I thought he connected to Tesarus. Was that in the instructions before and I just missed it?

    On the torso piece from the bust, where Tarn goes in Tarnation. There's a little block that flips down to make room for him and I never knew it moved.

    This may Well be Iron Factory’s magnum opus...

    not only is it a near perfect representation of the DJD in legends scale, but it manages what while ALSO doing something completely original with those designers and creating an awesome combiner out of them, with articulation, poseability, and stability that puts many other 3Ps to shame.

    this set deserves to win an award of some kind.

    im glad you feel so strongly about that. but i just see this as a sign of what is to come.

    this next big show in december could be amazing. hopefully they have some more lost lighters and maybe an autobot combiner.

    but i would love to see them do a devy.

    I'd love to see a Wreckage from them, or a Wreckers Ruination like the FoC repaints.
