Thanks. Placed my first order.
He’s only $25.00 at BBB? Do we know what price Show.Z will charge and/or US retailers?
That price is before shipping..
I assumed so, but I’m just wondering what is making this price/place so much better to order from. Is this price + shipping much better than Show.Z? What are they charging? I didn’t see this guy offered for pre-order on TCP; is it much better than US retailers also?
before shipping price is actually $20, which is unusually low and a good deal in comparison to the other prior IF minibots BBB has listed. add shipping and it will range from $25-30 and up depending on where you're located. for instance, for me the shipping ended up higher compared to someone in the US.
There’s a $4 coupon there right on the page too from BBB
Wait a minute. That's not a samurai. Lol
All of my legends scaled minibots(that sounds weird to say) are Iron Factory so far...I like their style. This would be no different...I dig it.
Usually not cheaper no, at least not for single purchases.
However, savings on multiple items can potentially start becoming very significant (if you shop around and compare), and even if one item is not in stock, or is incoming, and it might ship in a few separate package faster without charging extra, AND they have very fast shipping once it ships without any shenanigans. Also, they have coupons that is good to use.
Again, shop around and see for each item or group of items, I do anyways, some items might be cheaper, but usually maybe not for single purchases, and might even be much more than show z. I use all 3; bbb, show z and terry, but I am preferring bbb quickness and consistency right now.
Oh wow this is good...
Powerglide was just okay, but the rest of the minibots since Warpath have been some of my favorite IF designs.
In hand they are really fun to transform and pose on the shelf. They remind me of CHUG figures in the best way. Not religiously G1, but you still recognize characters and they don't look out of place next IF more traditional G1 figures like Wheeljack and Shockwave.
I like the little details like the sculpting on the arms. And the colors seem darker, maybe more saturated like Seaspray.
excellent, this looks awesome! looking forward to finally getting this in hand. glad they gave this one extra optional hands. might be good enough for me to pick up two for both modes like i did with beachcomber and seaspray!
Finally the transformation vid. Looks great love the condensed backpack, let's get this guy shipped.
This is a good little Huffer.
The transformation is more involved than I thought it would be! I dont have an attachment to Huffer but its hard to resist Iron Factory!
yeah, personally I prefer IF's non-samurai series. So will buy this and skip Samurai IronHide.
Unpainted wheels is weak sauce. Pretty sure that's a first for Iron Factory. Even their Cliffjumper molds had painted wheels, not to mention the piece of crap Drift mold did, too.
They are painted, though - at least, they look like it, assuming it's not just the lighting. It's a very dark metallic gray, but it is there.
Yeah, I think you're right. My bad. I was also wrong about it being an Iron Factory first anyway - their Onslaught figure had unpainted wheels.
