    I've been after the Igear version of Outback for a while now, the Titans return just didn't do it for me and wasn't the scale I was after ether.
    Knowing full well I would repaint him in the UK marvel comics colour scheme as this is mostly what u grew up with but now thinking is the yellow hoons make him look too much like Brawn? 20200304_181613.jpg Screenshot_20200304-201330_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200304-201235_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200304-201212_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200225-205910_Samsung Internet.jpg
    Now I'm starting to look towards the cartoon/classic colours Screenshot_20200225-205840_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200225-205656_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200225-205708_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200225-205743_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200225-210017_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200225-205939_Samsung Internet.jpg
    So I'm putting it to a vote what do you think? Probably give it a week currently tweaking/finishing off some painting on my legend Decepticon at present.

    All iGear Minibots scale with the original Classics Deluxe Bumblebee and Cliffjumper size. Much bigger than Siege Cliffjumper.

    I never got any of the igear stuff because Huffer, Pipes, Beachcomber, Cosmos, and Seaspray while looking great they just looked small in any comparison pics or videos posted. I never could get anything with recent toys. So I ended up with maketoys Swerve, Tailgate, and Gears, and MFT Huffer and Pipes (switched the generations legends in my cartoon display and Generations became my lost light). I want a better Brawn and since this is a redeco...MMC looks like he is a giant, and legends class is smaller than Cliffjumper now so he don't fit. And really all the generations line is a little small now...sigh.

    Huffer, Pipes and Seaspray were all "Legends" scale (and surprisingly work with Siege Cliffjumper). Beachcomber, Cosmos as well as the other entities of Brawn\Outback and Gears\Swerve were on par with the Classics Deluxe minibots of the time. Much larger in scale. Unfortunately they never finished the run, the planned Powerglide, Bumblebee and Cliffjumper never saw the light of day. Honestly, there isn't a proper Huffer\Pipers that fits into the scale. Hopefully something from Siege in the future.

    For me he works with my MP scale like some of the other igear range some of there stuff is tiny though like there Huffer I used to have. He was literally the last of the minibots I needed to get.

    Thanks guys...I am tempted to get the Brawn version and Cosmos then for my Lost Light stand ins over the MMC version and Legends Cosmos...I do want the MMC Guzzle but I am not wild about Brawn and think he will be out of place next to the rest...igear may fit my display better...and he looks really detailed.

    Only issue I had was the first back area paint I mixed up was a dark brown but then the 2nd coat didn't quite mix up so good and made him go more of an olive drab similar to Brawn and now with the yellow as well poor Prime is finding it hard telling the two apart..... 20200318_230821.jpg 20200318_230758.jpg

    At some point when get more paint I'll try a bit of brown over the now olive drab areas, still a lot happier with him than his original white/yellowed plastic state
