    Superion and Victorion were pretty big in IDW. Defensor never did much, but Streetwise and (especially) First-Aid showed up in the books.

    Are those guys really that hard to find? I know the Racing Bros. are hard to get. I figured they would be in abundance.

    The problem with iron factory is that there are no reissues ans iron factory starter ding legends long bfore magice square or newage. So the only way to get it is second hand market. If no one selling them then you re in for the long game. The good news is you have other options for at least sideswipe. Sunstreak should come from magic square or newage down the line. It is the samedi for the seekeers. There are a lot of options and more on their way

    I had a loooooot of trouble to get IF sixshot (taobao focused). I just need to get perceptor and i ll be out of trouble.

    Ugh. Goddamn Sixshot. I waited too long on that one, and he is so damn expensive now. I mistakenly bought the OSKO, but that sucker is too big.
    Their refusal to re-issue is a real shame. And I'm hoping for a release of their Sunstreaker mold that isn't in a multi-pack, but I bet I'm out of luck on that one too. IF is a difficult company sometimes.

    yeah i spent a looooooot of Times on internet to look for an affordable sixshot. I got one at taobao for 60 dollars but they added 40 in shipping ( from Malaysia) my wallet is still bleeding lol.
    I agree the lack of reissues is a real pain because there are a some I would like to buy only at a normal price (arcees, scorponock, sunstreeker)
    But focus on the positive they still are producing and made another soundwave. Who knows they might do other updates like him...

    I'm gonna say it again, in case it hasn't been said enough: SUPERION!!!

    -or-

    ANY AUTOBOT COMBINER!!!

    ...Rodimus/Galvatron...

    ...Tracks

    ...Punch/Counterpunch would be nice too...

    ...Maybe a Devcon that wasn't a Scourge remold...

    ...Astrotrain/Sandstorm/Octane(TR Broadside does the trick for me)

    ...Abominus

    ...AUTOBOT SPIKE(just kidding. Not Really.)

    I’m really getting back into IF.

    I still want IDW Fort Max more then anything. But I’d really like to see Rodimus, Cyclonus, Ratchet, all the wreckers. An autobot combiner would be great. Bigger/ updated dinobots would be really cool too.

    I would expect an update Optimus at some point. After Blitzwing I really expected IF to make a Springer. He really seemed to fit the criteria for choosing characters for their line-up: big in the comics and a more Cybertronian alt-mode.

    I also wouldn’t mind if IF tried their hand at Hearts of Steel. There are alot of character concepts that MMC didn’t touch. If we had HoS Prowl, Ratchet, Astrotrain, hell even Scourge that would be awesome.

    I'd like to see the headmasters. Mindwipe is one of my favorite characters.

    OhMyPrimus didn't have any of the Sixshot you are looking for? they're practically your next door neighbour. i figured shipping would be cheaper, or you could hop in, and out of Singapore to get your Sixshot. i'm from the Philippines and i usually avail of OMP's service if i couldn't get the figures that he sells, from local sellers (TW Infinitor, PPT Magnus).

    Oh I want to add that I really admire MMC Jaegertron (Lockdown) - I'd love to see an IF take on him.

    I figure this would be a great place to ask if anyone knows-
    IF did a RID-ruination scheme on their warbot, which i have and love. But i'm debating waiting to see if they do more RID schemes, specifically on the Heat Death to look like Cryotek. Think they'll do it?
