Which NOT Transformer to get, Transbot or Igear?


Recommended Posts



Thankfully they posted both these NOT transformers along side a version of Classics Optimus, and both are about the same size, and on par with MP Sideswipe (probably should be a tad bigger actually but hey...)


SO these are your choices Transfans!


The NOT Ironhide

the NOT Ratchet

or wait a bunch more years for a official MP to come out from Takara?




How much do each of these cost?

Which comes with better stuff?

Which looks better?

Which is better made?

Neither. I'm not that big of a Ironhide/Ratchet character/toy fan to want to buy a 3rd party toy of him. I was never a fan of that 1980's van alt mode.


I prefer the new age pick up truck alt mode for ironhide better. as I think it fits his tough guy,body guard,weapons expert persona. A van is a bad alt mode for ironhide. as a van is used to transport family/friends or a large group of people to their destinations. sorry their is nothing tough/cool about a van alt mode.

please, i drove a red minivan back in high school and i'm tuff as hell! :tfevil




I'm passing on the 3rd part Weapons Specialist and Medical Specialist. With Takara making MP cars, it's only a matter of time(hopefully not years) until they tackle Ironhide/Ratchet. I did preorder these a year ago but decided against them.

As much as I like what they've done, neither of these characters are in my "favorites" group. I won't be getting them; however, on iGear's Facebook page, when they displayed these, there were lots of positive comments and a lot of interest.

I'm more of a fan of the 1986 thru 1988 TF USA Toy/character years. I also love the Takara Japanese exclusive G-1 Character/toys.

Honestly, I may get both. I've had the Igear Specialists on pre-order for almost a year now, and I like the idea of Ratchet and Ironhide looking similar but actually being 2 completely different molds. The only thing that's holding me back is the fact that X-Transbots has yet to put out a high quality original mold, so I won't be pre-ordering X-transbots version, if I get it it'll be after a review has been put out.
