    Generally I will copy a post into Notepad and name it something meaningful to me.

    Another option is the Third Party Index,

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...31-3rd-party-company-index-work-progress.html

    Then all you have to do is remember the company names and you can find any threads for the projects. With the DX9 ones you need to add remembering the product line since unlike Shapeshift and IF at this point they also do larger figures.

    The color pics look amazing. Magnus is going to look excellent standing next to DX-9's Ratchet & Blurr.

    It's too bad he won't be small enough to sit in Leader Class Magnus' chest. That would have been very meta.

    To be fair, IF doesn't even know the size of Minimus' chair.

    This guy is looking more epic with the colours now applied. I wonder if he will be sold on his own or with another character tagged along ?
    Hopefully alone to keep the price resonable

    Just subscribed this thread so I can know when preorders are up. I need this guy to take care of the want for a new G1-ish Magnus that Hasbro's new leader figure fails to fulfill.

    Very nice, can't wait to order one.
    Also, let's see some color shot of the vehicle, the hammer, and a scale comparison shot with the other UM cyberverse figures. Such ashamed I don't have Gen Metroplex due to space, IF UM will be perfect as a play compliment.

    LOL. This is good and yes I do realize it's a different scale, etc but I'll take two of the leader class instead for that price.

    It's not like the price was that unexpected, given trailer and truck appear to be about as complicated as turret and manacle combined, with weapons bits probably roughly equal to the 2 tank drones. It's a shade high but if you were expecting a $25 toy you were stupid.

    The price talk started on page 6, where the reasonable price was suggested at $30-40, maybe 45. At $50, a hardcore UM fan myself would buy it, but for the casual fans, mostly not. If this was other character, I would pass too. He's more expensive than Hasbro CW Leader UM at $44.99/ Spring 2015. So Iron Factory UM will have huge competition from Hasbro Leader UM.

    With TFS shipping that would mean this figure worked out at £51 for me so........much as I want it I will wait/hope for a UK retailer to get hold of it.

    There's a rather large difference between $25 and $50, being that the latter is [literally] literally double the former.

    I mean, I know 3PC stuff is more expensive than Hasbro, so let's throw out the silly fact that this legends scale figure is the price of a Leader size figure of the same character. Instead, let's look at some other 3PC products. Like MMC's Azalea or FP's M3 carbots. All of which are "deluxe sized" figures at a mere $10 USD more than this guy. Or Maketoys' Trash-Talk & Cogwheel 2-pack, which is two scout-or-legends sized figures for $10-$20 USD more than this guy. Or DX9's third party legends scale figures, which are offer two legends figures for less than this guy.

    Also, he is around the price of an MP car (if you're lucky).

    That's overpriced to me. Especially with Hasbro's Leader UM and Guilty's Deluxe(?) UM coming up.
