    I just made purchases for all the magic square and newage figs in that picture. Damn nice to have my choices validated.

    I'm always surprised that more of their stuff doesn't get KO'd. The few that MFT have done have been pretty good.

    There is a KO OS of Wing of Tyrant, done by TVM. Unfortunately it's upscaled to deluxe. Even the included stand's pegs, meaning it's useless for actual IF figures.

    Yeah... So close to awesome but too big for even Legends Plus and too small for a CHUG collection to look right. If only he was just a smidge shorter or taller he would have fit into one of them

    Yeah, i got that KO. It's quite good, actually, but unless you are really into Deluxes, it's useless. I got the Armada-colored WoT recently and am going to just do some painting.

    I just got my Sideswipe Family and overall I like them - but I'm not sure they are better than the MS ones - the transformation is needlessly fiddly and the plastic is very thin. Also the mini-mech is weaponless as his hand seems to be the wrong size to hold the alternative guns - (unless I force them and risk breaking them) I have seen images of him holding them but the tolerances just seem to tight on mine - the spiked wheels don't fit either on the shoulder. Over all OK but they could be better I'd say it's worth someone else having a go in this scale MFT didn't quite hit a home run with these. It's not quite a weak as Scourge - but it's in that lower end territory - but at least scourge is easy to transform.

    I definitely think my Red Alert is better than my G1 Swipe, he seems more solid. Agreed on the thin plastic, overall is say it's a step down from their Chromedome, but I do like the pair of them. Can't comment on the G2, don't think I'll be getting him.

    The nice thing about these is that, to me, MS Inferno and Grapple seem too small. I don't like having a guy who turns into a firetruck be shorter than a guy (Trailbreaker) who turns into a pickup truck. It'll be extra weird when Hoist comes out, since he'll be hanging out next to Grapple for a lot of people. A centimeter taller sounds perfect to me. Add in the new lights and swappable hands, and it's even better. I think these guys will be taking the place of the MS versions on my shelf.

    Now, ironically, the MS versions actually fit in much better with NewAge carbots. In fact they look pretty perfect together. So.... with just a little shuffling.... I think MS Grapple and Inferno will go with the NewAge guys, and these larger MFT versions will go with Magic Square's carbot lineup (in what is, for me, rapidly becoming two separate and differently-scaled Legends collections). Phew! Got that sorted out. And god help me if NewAge ever releases their own Inferno/Grapple....

    100% Agree! I display the NA Minibots and Carbots with MS Inferno/Grapple and Blaster [not to mention Beachcomber, who fits in with the NA guys seamlessly], plus DX9 Optimus, Ironhide and Ratchet. They go GREAT together! Of course, Ratchet and Ironhide will be replaced once NA release their versions.

    Haha, yup, I’m leaning toward a very similar lineup!

    Of course, I also have a Legends+ lineup to curate - it's tough sometimes, deciding who goes where!

    Took this pic of my 'Generation 2' Legends+ display next to my bed [I've since swapped out HS Prime for the OSKO of Dutch]:

    Is it bad that
    I’m not. They went full G1. I’m ready to replace the IF KOs.


    Give me that Magnus.

    That Iron Factory Jetfire, though. I'd be so happy if they blew him up.

    Is there a KO of the Iron Factory Dai Atlas? I had him and liked him, but he was too small. I need one the same size as the MFT Black Shadow.
