agree, usually they release a set of glamour shots prior to shipping.
Yeah I'm gonna assume my site got him mixed up with Scourge since they posted they have stock of them in this week. Oh well, the wait continues.
Sina Visitor System
They say it will be released in early September.
oh man this thing is sooo fucking bought. im glad the dojo gets their IF figs super fast.
Sweet, I was hoping the trio would be completed soon.
Oh........... Ma.................... Gawd!!!
Sooo much better than the travesty that was MMC Boreas. Besides scale, I usually think Iron Factory and MMC Reformatted are neck and neck when they release figures of the same character, but there are some exceptions - MMC Optus Pexus is far better than IF Ultimate Commander, and this Hannyamaru is far better than MMC Boreas. Then again, that's comparing recent figures to one that's years old, so it's great to see the progress that both companies have made.
Cyclonus makes the most sense with the IF Samurai series (given his looks and personality in IDW1), though Bludgeon and Lio Convoy looked pretty great as well. Ratchet and Ironhide have me scratching my head though.
IF, I'm begging you at this point. Give us an IDW Tailgate too!
I would really hope this was far better than Mmc boreas. As Mmc boreas was not idw cyclonus. Boreas was just a repaint of Cassy sark cybertronian jet lockdown (jaegertron) with a cyclonus head g1- head sculpt meant to be a stylized verison of the g1 cyclonus. This is one of the last figure MMC used designer Cassy Sark for as the reformatted line was changing directions, and wanted to go the idw mtmte/LL figures route, so just for fun they added the extra idw cyclonus head as a bonus.
It has been stated on the mmc forums that a true idw mtmte/LL cyclonus is near the top of their want to do list. Honestly it may have been better for mmc to have made a newline or subline for only there mtmte/LL figures instead of keeping everything in reformatted, there has always been confusion. But I wouldn't count anything Cassy sark made as part of the current reformatted idw mtmte/LL line.
Anyways this little figure a must have.
I really wasn't planning to get this one but decided to PO a couple of weeks ago when I ordered Dark Cygnus.
Glad I did, he looks fantastic.
Really happy IF has been picking up again the last few months. Maybe we'll even see Alpha Trion before Thanksgiving.
this would pair up with their Bludgeon so well, especially with the skull face sculpt… can't wait!!!
So hyped for this guy; might be the best IDW Cyclonus to date
This. And the other core LL crew
They do have pipes on the way soooooooooooo theres 1 member of the LL
Yeah I have Boreas as it was cheap at the time. Its not the most dissapointinf third party purchase I've made (looking at you at you Legends Transmetal-1 Megs) and I like the alt-mode but it just did not work. Literally. If you transformed it properly it could break the waist. Would have preferred a darker purple too.
Looking forward to this. I assume these shots means they're almost ready to go.
man he looks so f'ing sick. i cant wait till he shows up. thankfully they hit my spot at lightning speed. so hopefully i have him in hand this week or by next week at the latest.
wow, why is this a $20 pre-order deposit on ShowZ without the usual $1 matched discount?
manufacturer requested deposit.
they don't have a choice.
that doesnt make any sense at all. why would a manufacturer request a deposit like that from a 3rd party store.
i would have just thought it was a typo.
this is the first time i have ever heard of that especially the way that IF just basically sends bots to their sellers.
