    Iron Factory IF-EX36 The Tyrant. Looks about ready to ship.

    We're getting optional hands for Starscream. Wonder how they're going to pull that off? They come on a tray, but Is there some to be kind of internal arm connector?

    I didn't see a thread on this. Please merge/delete if I just missed it.

    I liked this the moment I saw it.

    For me, Megatron as a gun especially as an in-hand figure doesn't work.

    As a tank or vehicle is my preference.

    I also find robot to pistol transformations make far too many sacrifices whereas a tank (much like robot to truck/vehicle for Prime) seems like a better option.

    Looking forward to seeing how this figure scales against Hot Soldiers Optimus Prime.

    I'm still disappointed this isnt the MTMTE design, but it still looks fantastic. I'll be getting it when it releases.

    It'll be good to have a leader for all the IF cons I've got.

    Not even a page and we already have people talking about OSKO’s. Can we seriously just chill out? If you want to talk about that stuff make another thread. It gets tiring seeing people detracting from the actual figure and designers like that.

    Wouldn't want an OS KO if I didn't like the design. In fact I like it so much I'd get the original and the OS KO ;)

    It’s the nature of the beast. Some people just want it bigger. Or cheaper. Or maybe of shampoo bottle plastic. We can’t stop them.

    Ok then how about an oversize original ?

    I think you were missing the whole point of the comment. Not everybody is on board with legends scale. While the design might be at an adult capacity, the small size makes it seem childish like a mcdonalds toy.

    Dammit, I'm trying to get away from Iron Factory since I'm not that into their small scale but I have to have this. It looks so good.

    No, it just looks like their old Laserbeak, I have it sitting right here on my desk. They really need to update their cassettes.

    Holy shit, I want to know what kind of Happy Meal toys you're getting that they have toys like this in them.

    That is Laserbeak from their first Soundwave. It was too big really for that Soundwave, but he turned into a shield and had some nice articulation. Megatron should be able attach him in shield form to his forearm.

    So I finally cracked and ordered their Cygnus last week. It's my first IF figure. I think this may have to be my second IF figure!
