    A Metallic Sludge reissue is an "In demand" item I would say more than the animated one.

    I tried asking hzj401 on ebay if he would be carrying the dinobot reissues individually or as the sets so I could pick up the blue animated swoop without the set... he said I could order the metallic blue one boxed. Has anyone else gotten a better response from hzj?

    So glad I pre-ordered this guy. I held off on buying the original Springer, because I had hope they'd eventually release v2. I am pretty pleased!

    I'm still relatively unfamiliar with MFT - I've only got their Ultra Magnus, Blaster and Astrotrain - so I wonder... Should we really expect another Ramhorn, or could that be just a placeholder?

    i mean that is it for now. the maroon one came with the first version of blaster. i am sure whenever MS drops their blaster 2.0 he will have all the minions and stuff. but for now this is it outside of the IF beast.

    Yeah, that's the reason why I asked: Magic Square Twincast included Steeljaw, if I remember correctly.

    If they included steeljaw I would have picked this version up, I do not need it per se for my headmaster set up.
    This will be a pass for me.
    I am looking forward to their own designs coming out.

    MFT are going to loose some sales by spamming Ramhorn's in every release like that. They could have at least tried something different with the colours. I suppose we will get a Blue Ramhorn with the Shattered Glass deco too.
    Perhaps they can scale whatever Soundwave they make to take the same size cassettes and make some more then..

    I hope they do still make those Micromasters/Gobots though. I do still really want them, especially if someone makes Mudflap/Greasepit.

    Same. I'm still not 100% sure, but I feel like I'll pass too.
    On the one hand I'm always in for new Autobots (my collection is pretty much Magic Square-only, so the good guys are getting outnumbered by Decepticons) and this is cheap too, but this release still is quite underwhelming.

    That Springer tho!

    Exaclty.
    I mean, I'm not gonna make it a bigger of a deal than what it needs to be, but still... It was a matter of KOing a different - already existing - head, and casting the cassette in a yellow colored plastic instead of red. Oh well.

    A question arose, maybe I already have the answer, why are larger robots more expensive than small ones like sideswipe, prowl ...?

    Quick question guys, I have just gotten back into this and when I left IF were the big dogs. MFT? Are they direct KO of IF or are they bigger or smaller? I’m looking to get the IF versions of Tengu and Evil Lord but these are expensive so I was wondering if MFT are a good alternative and how they compare in terms of quality.

    thanks

    They're bigger, and I think scale better to other Legends than the original IF versions. I like my Phase-Sixers big.

    Quality is good on mine.

    yeah what he just said. i have both and i really love the size of the MFT bots. the IF set are nice but definitely not worth it if you ask me.

    Why does a large french fries cost more than a small?

    Wow, I mean wow! I already have the original but now I'm going to have to get 1 for bot mode, another for that sweet ride, a third for chopper mode, and a fourth to repaint it like a black hawk/batmobile. And the way that sword splits in half? Ingenious! Way to go MFT!
