    I have IF's Void Tyrant on preorder and I was wondering if it's been delayed and for how long?

    This just makes me more anxious since I'm hoping they also release a cyclonus.

    You and me both, brother. I need a mini IDW Cyclonus and even mini-er Tailgate.

    To answer your question: We should assume all things 3P or otherwise has been delayed somewhat. Best bet is to ask in said topic and not create a separate one though <3

    I don't think so since they're still releasing. More like slowed down than delayed. I'd expect their 2020 line-up to take 18 months rather than 12.

    Iron Factory always announce more than they can possibly release in a timely manner, and the pandemic has only compounded this habit against the huge slate of figures they announced last year.

    But they’re still truckin’.

    I just want that SG Jetfire, that's the IF figure I'm most sad to see delayed.

    Bludgeon then Ultra Magnus and I think that's it for 2020.

    Pretty sure Magnus was announced *after* Galvatron.


    I was actually on the fence about SG Jetfire, but I ended up shelling 100 for OG because I really liked his colors. No regrets.

    I’d love for that to be the case, but Magnus has (more) finished photos while Soundwave and friends do not, so I would be highly surprised if Soundwave sees release before Magnus.

    ??? Mate i just said magnus is next (dec) after bludgeon, which is just released now in china.

    Soundwave could be next in the new yr after magnus if u look at the likely schedule. But who knows galvatron maybe pushed forward by IF b4 sw, which i prefer as there are too many soundwaves in the legends market.

    Ah, I thought you meant Ultra Magnus would come after Soundwave, and not “after [that], then Soundwave.”

    Now, I gotcha.

    Like I said in the IF appreciation thread, Soundwave is pretty much the only one (aside from Girl starscream but that's assuming she's a separate line) from the 2018 reveals missing coloured model pics/release, and after that it's all those that were revealed in 2019 (Galvatron, SG jetfire, powerglide, etc.), so unless they pull something new, he should be showing up at the start of 2021 after Magnus.

    If anything I'd say they managed to do pretty well during this year, roughly being consistent with 1 figure released per month, but they rarely communicate so I can see why people are worried that they may fall (hopefully never).

    Setting aside the issue of 3p very frequently taking longer than their optimistic release dates, I think it’s wise to assume all 3p will be subject to extra delays until the pandemic is over.

    What about the two new seekers? Do we think they’re going to be further delayed?

    That new Magnus is pretty cool though. It would be wild if they did a legends scaled Hot Rod for their line. I’m pretty much exclusively collecting IF at this point to live on my shelf with the Hasbro Titans.

    Also, I’m still hoping we see the other cassettes get a similar treatment to Frenzy/Rumble after Soundwave is released. I’d love a new IF Ravage and Ratbat. (And maybe a Devastator? Some new Dinobots?)

    Here’s to hoping the IF people are all doing alright. I’m glad they’re around :)

    So much this. Magnus' colored images look so good, my only issue is he seems way too big (Maximus Ambus was also too big). Also, a Rodimus would be incredible.

    Any information on Frenzy/Rumble? I only saw one image of the prototypes, but nothing else. No numbers, names. Nothing.

    I agree Magnus is a bit large. I was hoping for something just a little larger than his first IF figure (who still looks great in both modes - even if he doesn’t have spinning wheels...)

    But I imagine this new Magnus will scale well with the other IF figures in vehicle mode.

    It's so weird seeing how big Magnus is here. I have Bluestreak and Jetfire and Jetfire already feels unusually big in comparison. Now this.
