    So the Circle of Light gains it's founder. I wish there were a few more Autobots in the reveals, but I am glad the only Autobot is someone overlooked by the Hastak and the other 3P legend guys. It's been getting a little repetitive with the seekers, Arcee, Shockwave and Dinobots.

    Also nice to see the amount of bad guys in this lineup. Really happy about that.

    Of all the Iron Factory reveals tonight, this is probably the one I'm most interested in. I never thought I'd have an opportunity to get a cool Dai Atlas figure, much less in my favorite size class. I don't even care that it's IDW aesthetic.

    No interest in this guy but he does look pretty cool so far.

    The bit mode looks ok, but I want to see the alt mode before I decide to buy it .

    My only exposure to this character is the Fansproject figure, so I have no expectations, but it will be cool to have an Autobot of roughly the same size as Lord Scorpion to keep the "balance", though I put that in quotes because right now there's a 2:1 or higher ratio of Autobots to Decepticons in the IF collection. :)

    Awesome, an IDW Dai Atlas. Man I could lose myself with this tiny figures. But I really need this design except as a Leader scale.

    Yeah. Their Drift looks great in bot mode, but that alt mode is just total meh. Hopefully that's not the case with this one. After all he does have a bigger size.

    Amazing, love the shot of him with his student.

    I'd love to see an IDW / G1 Star Saber in this series.

    They're just jumping from one place to another with these releases aren't they?


    I'm not saying that it's a bad thing, it just means that there's no predicting what could be next. :lol

    Looks good. I'm both very happy and disappointed with the recent Iron Factory announcements.

    Bruticus and Dai Atlas at legends scale? Yes please.

    Disappointing to see that the two major legends makers DX9 and Iron Factory are going to be competing on seekers and coneheads.

    Both had done a good job of steering clear of each other they almost seemed in sync in a way.

    One does Megatron, the other Prime.
    One does Devastator, the other Dynobots etc.

    Yeah, it made collecting both easier.

    IDW inspired and G1 just aren't different enough for the two of them to avoid going head to head forever.

    They already competed with Arcee. Sorta.

    Yeah although IF went cutesy anime look.

    To be honest where Hasbro have delivered legends I'm generally ok with them.

    Official Shockwave is fine, same for Seekers although a 'King' Starscream is of interest for sure.

    Legends Dai Atlas and Bruticus from Hasbro are likely very inefficient use of resources so I'm in for them.

    I think their approaches are different enough that they don't completely overlap. You want really G1 accurate F-15s, go DX9; you want something cool updated F-22s, go Iron Factory. I think both have a market.
