    Whether IF delivers all three seekers this month will be the biggest tell as to whether they will get Bruticus out in Q3. At the moment, July seems very optimistic.

    My guess would be...
    May/June: Seekers
    June/July: Coneheads
    August: Swindle+Brawl
    September: Vortex+Blastoff
    October: Onslaught, Shockwave
    November: Dai Atlas

    Please Iron Factory, please prove me wrong and get em all out sooner!

    Agreed. If the seekers ship soon IF is probably on track to maintaining their release schedule.

    I am afraid though if they insist on releasing all three Bruticus sets simultaneously it is more likely that the Combaticons will be delayed.

    Don't forget Black Zarak.

    IF should pump them out before the end of the year like they did last year. They were pretty consistent with a release a month.

    This year it almost seems they might even be alternating with DX9 who get their product out the first part and IF the second part of the year. Just a theory.

    Is there much precedent for Iron Factory knock-offs? I can't justify paying more for a Legends class Bruticus than what the Unite Warriors one costs, or DX9's 6 figure Devastator costs.

    MechFans Toys have released KO's of IronFactory Ultra Magnus and several DX9 molds including their Devastator. By all accounts the quality appears to be good.

    That was an oversized KO for Magnus, not Legends scale. The plastic quality was meh and the paint apps were about 50% there. Not to mention it took a year and a half or more from the original release before it saw the light of day.

    There haven't been any direct rips of IF figures and there's only been the one out of how many releases now?

    The only direct rip off I can think of was DX9's Devastator. Same size, but new colors. Everything, even the Hasbro stuff has been upscaled, right?

    What paint apps were missing? From the pictures I've seen, they were all there (including new silver paint to the thighs and newly-sculpted head). Could you post some pics? I'm curious to see what changed from the original pics.

    If there's news, people will post it. If anyone wants to stay as up to date as possible, just subscribe to the thread and follow Iron Factory on various social media platforms. Asking if there's news doesn't help it come faster and it bumps threads that don't need bumping, which can be time-consuming for Newsies who are doing sweeps for news.

    I'm just as excited as ya'll, but IF revealed a LOT last year in teaser/prototype form, so they have some ground to cover before getting to Bruticus. TFCon Toronto is just around the corner too, so chances are if we don't see anything soon, it'll be there or at DC.

    Speculation: Seeing as parts of Sunstorm are coming with Thundercracker, Skywarp, and the Coneheads... part of me makes me think that Acid Storm will be divided into three parts, coming with the three sections of Bruticus.

    Oh my.

    Onslaught and Blast Off's colour palettes are hit and miss for me, but that combined mode.

    That. Combined. Mode.
