    That's... wonky looking.

    I need to pull out my Giant and compare him to Starscream to get a rough size estimate of how they scale.

    Yes. It's IF-EX20C Clone. Comes in parts from IF-EX20B/V and Coneheads.

    Goddamn, that's one sexy combined mode.


    The individual figures look great as well.

    Oh, absolutely. I'm happy for the Legends collectors. It's actually quite a nice and convenient size, and I see why a lot of people enjoy it. Personally, I just don't want to start another collection in that size class (really trying to streamline my purchases).
    Also, you bring up MP, and that's kind of my problem. I don't collect MP either. I'm a CHUG collector. Some folks will counter with Warbotron, but he just doesn't suit my aesthetic preferences (over-detailed, if you ask me). So far there hasn't been a Bruticus that ticks all the boxes for me, and it annoys me that the market is so oversaturated with MP. I like the look of what Iron Factory is offering here, so I'm just sad I can't have one that looks like this only, y'know. Bigger.

    Again, as a Bruticus fan, I'm considering getting him. It might be nice to have a pocket-sized combiner to mess around with!

    Damn, I'm not actually disappointed in that. Iron Factory keeps getting me, and I just went all in on the Seekers stuff. Now I gotta get this, too.

    I like that and may well get it, but why are all of Blast Off's unofficial toys that orange-brown color now? He's supposed to be a darker brown.

    I really like that Vortex. It looks kinda like a Hind in the cockpit area.
    Blastoff is ok, but I wish he had a little more bulk to match Vortex.
    Swindle looks good, albeit pale.
    Brawl looks like what you'd expect for Brawl.
    Onslaught though, I'm not a big fan of his alt mode.

    Combined they look ok. The legs are a lot heftier than the arms, and that throws off the proportions for me.

    I'm waiting to see some video reviews before pulling the trigger on this guy.

    well his point is with DX9 upscaling their stuff, IF (and UT) are the only ones providing at this scale with hasbro using their legends as smaller voyager bots.
    There's isn't much alternative here, but since your in the same boat you can see why we wonder why you can't go an ask to downscale some other bruticus instead of freaking people out here. You know as we've already seen dx9 fall to the pressure of 'If only it woz bigga' posts.

    And yes I get it its harder to ko downscale, possibly impossible.

    Changing subject.
    When is this in shops?
    Bought!

    Really dope set. Not digging the price whatsoever. Way over priced.
    Hopefully it gets KO'ed.

    Sorry, didn't mean to freak anyone out. Wasn't aware about DX9, either. Also, I've voiced my disdain for MP size numerous times in the past, so me complaining about size is nothing new. Keep doing what you're doing, Iron Factory. Don't listen to me.

    Anyways, on topic: Now that I've seen more pictures, I'm really starting to like this guy. I know it's kind of contradictory to what I've been saying, but one of my issues with Combiners is, while they look nice, I can't really mess around with them since they're so big. So I can easily see myself making this purchase just to have a small combiner to play with. That, and he looks flippin' amazing. My god.
    Also, I just can't get over how wonderful that Brawl is. It's everything I've wanted from a Brawl: a big, chunky robot. I just want to cuddle him. :3

    Oh, btw: I figure these guys come packages as a set? Or are they individual releases?

    Guys, I have a feeling that his 'extra parts' combine into another vehicle, or maybe a trailer that Onslaught can pull.

    Check out the wheels folded under the feet, and there appears to be a cockpit on his crotch plate (giggity)

    You know Iron Factory doesn't fuck around when it comes to accessories.

    They're very clean and VERY SEXY, Swindle is particularly groovy holding his Pew pew and Onslaught seems the idol of all triggerhappy folk.
    He almost seems to be sayin, 'there are many guns but this is my gun...'

    now that we talked about guns can we talk about how the green and blu plastic are beast.
    also; when can I have these
