Anybody here have any of the igear "Masterpiece" figures?
Are they in the same scale/size as the Takara/Tomy/Hasbro Masterpiece figs? They look like maybe they're smaller...

iGear (as you probably know) is a 3rd party company that produces transforming robots in very close likenesses of G1 Transformers. They are not officially licensed by Hasbro/Takara/Tomy and do not bear the Autobot or Decepticon insignias. They are smaller than the official MP series but larger than their G1 counterparts to allow for better articulation.

I don't actually own any myself, but I have been thinking about it. Let me know if you get any. I'd be interested to know what you think of them.

I was looking for (price) alternatives to MP figs - on their site it says their "Traitor" figure is the same size as the MP Starscream.
The Jet team (Ramjet, Dirge, & Thrust) appear to be smaller than that scale though, but the "Leader" figs are the same size as the MP Optimus/Magnus figs.
I wonder why only some of their figs are 'full' size and others are smaller...

To help keep costs down maybe? I can't imagine they produce as many as HasTak does.
