    So... If this actually means anything or not, I figured I'd share this here for all of those wanting to own this beauty.. Good luck! Ha.. I'm probably gonna buy a second one of these if this means he has hit the MOQ numbers.. :D 

    Edit.. To clarify, would now be backordered if preordered on Kapow.. So likely a second run is good to go?

    Never mind, I get what you're saying. The last bit reads like you're saying they should do a second run.

    [Shockwave] Logic dictates that there must be a third offering, if the second run has the option for a backorder. Logic, logic, logic...[/Shockwave]

    Anyone know if the reissue of this figure is still on track for release in July? I preordered him recently, and was just curious if there had been any updates or delays for the figure. PSX had him listed for August.

    I picked this guy up last week thanks to an eBay promo code. Everyone seems to be a fan of him & I like all the other MMC molds I've picked up.


    And after messing with him I have to say I am... thoroughly unimpressed.

    Robot mode is fine but transformation is like a damned Rubix cube; everything has to line up exactly right & in precisely one pose. And the resulting vehicle mode isn't exactly stellar.

    Every other MMC toy I own walks a fine line between creative and challenging; Spartan feels all-in on the latter. It's just not a FUN transformation like Aero Alpha, Collisus or Calidus.

    So yeah. Bit of a letdown here.

    If anyone is looking for a Spartan he's in stock at PSX, RobotToyBase and ActionRobo again along with the new wave of Kultur. Both should be in at US etailers soon too.

    I wish they would do another run of the Turmoil version. Im not a big Impactor fan but I considered getting him to repaint as Shockwave.

    Where'd you get yours? I pre-ordered mine through BBTS and I'm kinda antsy about the "early September" date.

    [Before people state the obvious! I know this is not MP scale]
    BUT, I wanted to ask anyway... but has anyone posted size comparison pics of the FT apache/springer and this impactor to the site yet?
    I am just curious if its remotely close in ht or not even close for a shelf display?

    I haven't got a picture, but Apache is much bigger, a good 1.5 to 2 inches taller. I don't think they'd display well together.

    Crud... hmm. Well I am just starting to get into collecting some of these amazing looking IDW themed bots and I was hoping I could use the FT Koot and Apache for springer and kup an just mix em all up an it be passable. But thats a LARGE ht difference. So the MMC Impactor wont look so good with the FT springer then.

    Hmm... Well for someone just starting collecting these IDW bots, what options do we have for good versions of the Wreckers, and Lost Light Crew/leader bots do we have out now? I have found the following bots so far I am interested in for an IDW shelf...

    MMC Captain Megatron "tyrantron/autobot megs"
    MMC "CO-Captain" Rodimus
    MMC Whirl
    Maketoys Tailgate
    Maketoys Swerve
    MMC Roadbuster
    MMC Impactor
    MMC Drift "car transform version"
    MMC Tarn of the DJD

    ...but the following figures...

    Cyclonus
    Springer
    Kup
    [anything else currently out that is specifically IDW looking]

    ...I cant seem to find an IDW figure currently out/available for purchase. If I have missed something that is already out there and anyone knows of what the bots I need, or if they are not even out yet. Please post a reply and let me know so I know what to search for to help round out my IDW shelf roster.

    Generations Springer for Springer. This guy's definitive!
    Fans Toys Quietus has an alt head and look based on Cyclonus' IDW appearance and comes out later this month (presumably).
    Maketoys has a kit to make Classics Cyclonus IDW, but I think it's long gone by now (and not that great looking).
    Fans Toys has a Kup that could pass as IDW or G1, but for the more IDW look the Generations "Sgt. Kup" is about the closest you'll get, and I think there's a head upgrade out there for him somewhere.

    tyrantron is amazing. He's in my top 5 of favorite Transformers of all time
    Maketoys Tailgate is also great, and he solves your Cyclonus problem. If you get a Battle in Space Cyclonus, Maketoys Tailgate comes with parts to make Cyclonus all IDWish. For someone who is not handy in the least, it wasn't hard to swap the parts. you will need a small screwdriver.

    Maketoys Swerve is great too

    Springer, I believe the thrillin 30 Springer is IDW inspired
