    Just as an opinion - these figures are amazing. Sturdy and well built. they are not deluxe size -and really pics do not do it justice. I had some for sale at tfcon and people could not stop pawing over the one i had displayed :p  Someone even insisted on buying the displayed one. Great figure - definitely worth considering

    Goddammit, that seeker mold is just so beautiful. I want all six, but they're a hundred bucks apiece. Plus they feel a bit large for my Classics collection. Damn.

    Not large at all. Remember that they're jets and they shouldn't be the same size as cars.....unless you don't mind that.

    Do the rear halves of your not-Thrust's wings tend to flop down a bit when you have them upside-down like in your pic? Mine tend to go horizontal.

    Oh yeah?

    Until they release the Armor for their PP-01 Ultra, which was announced 4 years ago, they are also dead to me!!!!

    PP01 Ultra - what a crappy material! Igear said purchased Ultra and they'll deliver the armor, 4 year past, nothing.

    I am unsure if we are going to be seeing any more IGear Products. I mean theres a chance. But there's also rumors from some people in the know.

    They just sold a buttload of $100 seekers, so they're still around, but their priorities have changed, it seems.

    Precisely that. There will be IGear toys yet, but what form they take, I do not know.

    Yeah, I believed that iGear was copying a downsized version of MP-01 Optimus Prime. Same with the MP-03 Seeker mold.

    I just bought my 3rd seeker. Can't believe I've shelled out $300 bucks on 3 of the same mold. They are fantastic. I don't see Igear leaving anytime soon

    Presser was probably the best looking thing iGear has ever teased. But it was never released and I hope that they could someday release it or hand it over to another company since the designer doesn't own the design anymore.

    And I also I needs the red Kup head, too.
