    this little fig came instock @ToyDojo over the weekend. if anyone is interested please drop by the site and scoop one up. beat the holiday shipping rush.

    Iron Factory - IF-EX49P Last Prophet

    i am super late with this as i have had the fig for a bit now. but better late than never is what i was always told.

    the little alpha is fantastic bot and definitely feels like his own fig and not just a remold. it has enough personality to not get lost in the shuffle. of course he comes with the classic stiff IF joints. but they are smooth and nothing is scary tight by any means. the finish is top of the line per usual

    when i saw the pics the first time i was immediately drawn to the matrix staff since i felt like it was a cool addition to the fig and had lots of potential. i went into this bot with the full intentions of just ordering an extra staff from IF.

    but luckily i hit the IF lotto and my bot came double clamshelled and had an extra matrix staff...woot

    i don't know if this was a freak occurrence or something that might have just slipped out on the very first production runs. so good luck to you all who are ordering this and may the legend gods bless ya.

    these new IF bots have been nothing but homeruns in my book. i highly recommend all of them to anyone who might be on the fence.

    Unsure as to what you mean. He came with the clear plastic over the black plastic insert in the box.

    Got this guy two days ago from Show.Z. Happy to have a nice Alpha Trion, the Super7 just doesn't do it enough. Also like that the wings are different from Scourge. Wasn't planning getting Devcon but after this guy I might.

    Edit: just one staff

    Got mine today. I didn't get their Scourge, because IF figures are that bit smaller than the way I have my collection now. But I don't mind Alpha Trion being shorter than the usual leader types, so it was a great way to get a version of this particular mold. I love the figure--fits the Alpha Trion bill just right for me.

    Last Prophet arrived today and it’s perfect! Tolerances are tight but not difficult to move and no QC issues at all.

    Here’s how I like to transform the back kibble, it looks more like a cape to me this way and less like wings. Also I prefer to not flip out the toe spikes.

    I've picked up this figure and think it's a great addition to my G1 legends family. I doubt it will be transformed very often, but I even love the staff that's not something I've ever associated with the character before!

    Something always felt a little off with the face though, I couldn't put my finger on it originally, but I think I've worked out what it is...

    IMHO, the face mask just needed a little more white across the top, rather than have the eyes hard up against the purple crown.

    In person, it looks all the same colour, but the photo shows the different shades.
