    probably works out cheaper for those wanting a whole set if they were packages as such. but for ppl like me who only wants one, this works out better price wise as i don't want to buy 3 extra remolds.

    I don't buy more than one of the same mold (unless sthey happened to be in a boxset), so 1 figure + accessories works for me.

    If I wanted sweeps to go with it, which I don't, Ill just wait for NA or even Hasbro Core for that.

    3 at most, each an entirely different mold

    Looks awesome. At $40-45 a pop though I'm not sure I can justify troop building, probably settle for just parts-swapping whenever I feel the need.

    That looks freaking great.

    I’m probably out though, I’m at this point where I’m tired of finding cracks and breakage on IF figures after owning them for awhile. It makes me nervous about playing with them and I’m not sure it’s worth it.

    100%. So much plastic and paint that has to sit in the box forever, never get used, and eventually become landfill. At least they're small

    Technically you're right, they are the same, but not from a story or character perspective. I liked it with Megatron, since you essentially have on character but with different looks, selling them as different figures (Tyrant E, Tyrant C etc) would've made you feel like you were missing out. With Scourge, I feel it's different because the Sweeps are different characters.

    Honestly the extra accessories are cool, but they'll be taking up space and end up getting lost. I wouldn't have minded different versions sold separately like how the Seekers worked.

    Why does it matter what order? You'll get them all eventually.

    Shots of the box? Nice! So shipping soon hopefully. There has been a serious Iron Factory shortage the last few years. Maybe they'll get back on track.

    What do you mean by shortage in the last few years.

    Does iron factory used to release more figs?

    Even with last years pandemic I recall seeing quite a few figs (counting of course all IF release and just not g1 stuff)

    Not everything, just a larger percentage of new molds pushed back into following year. IF always had a few slip behind schedule, but it seems like more figures the last two years pushed back.

    Didn’t IF switch to a new factory and were delayed because of that? And then Covid on top of that.

    i dont know i just rem that the tfcon pre covid had a lot of new designs possibly due to them having finished all previous projects and since of that line up we got .. how many 3? kinda makes me wish samurai ratchets were set aside.

    (im not sure if im counting deathsaurus in that line up, rather black gold seeker - still maybe blue deathsaurus counts as produced during covid?)

    The front of the vehicle makes it looks like a remold of Norimune/Muramasa, wasn't expecting that.

    It's not a remold. Similar design idea but not a remold.

    Kinda like how there are a few design similarities between their version of Bludgeon and Megatron
