    Love this idea. There are some incredible designs and colors that would lend themselves really well to a Transformers line. The trick would be to do it tastefully - a potential minefield.

    Anyone want to take bets that Bludgeon gets a Beast Wars Rampage repaint eventually?

    Sure. I’ll bet a million Robot Points that he doesn’t.

    That would be a good reuse of the mold. Just change the head and Oni face into something a little more crustacean. Maybe add weapons that could mount on the crab tank.

    love em too.
    my queries are mostly about LC though:
    - Is it just me or is Lio Convoy the first Iron Factory Figure that isnt inspired from the IDW character studies? Well there's Optimal prime but is this a new trend?
    - Does anyone else take this as a hint to more BW legends scale figures from IF? I'd love a take on Sins of the Wrecker stuff, Carnivac and Tarantulas above all with the squid a close third.

    Just me?

    Ah, Unicron/Shockwave's keikaku shenanigans then.

    Considering how there's been a push for more BW stuff lately (especially for it's...25th anniversary, is it?), and how some 3P companies have started making BW characters, I wouldn't be surprised if IF jumped on the bandwagon.

    I don't have any attraction towards BW designs, but I understand that people grew up with them and why they like them and that's ok - I'm more optimistic at the fact that this could be a possibility for IF to eventually tackle BM designs, especially the vehicons.

    I hope if IF does more BW that it’s just a side project like it is now. I’m getting the two BW figures that they’re making, but there are so many more IDW figs I’d love to see them make.

    Is the lion head attached to Lio Convoy's shoulder or is there something on his back holding it?

    Pre-ordered these guys on BBTS, gonna wait on the others...

    Lio Convoy comes out in my birth month, if it isn’t delayed numerous times, so maybe that’ll be a cool gift.

    Hope that swirly gold plastic on bludgeon isn't prone to breakage like I've heard from many Hasbro offerings.

    Would love legends scale versions of ancestrod and the t-beast bots I’ve seen.

    But I’m looking forward to seeing a samurai-robot-lion battling a samurai-demon-tank-robot on my shelf.

    And with the Newage TMNT figures it's turning into a battle royal.

    Off topic: A few days ago after seeing T-Beast Sideswipe in a video from Tydirium Hanger I lookup up T-Beast. As I understand it, it's based on a book of art illustrations of Transformers who turn into animals but there is no lore. Is that correct?

    I’m not sure but I’d love to see it. I just thought it was third parties getting creative.

    Just google T-Beast Transformers and you should find some pictures. Although I think some pictures are from DeviantArt and not from the book. Wouldn't mind the book as a coffee table book.

    is someone reliably upsizing each of iron factory's molds or is it a crapshoot which ones get done? i really want this bludgeon, but i don't want to splurge n then it gets a ko at a size i'd far prefer.
