You know youve reached a certain age when you start getting floppy bits, you start to flake and cant control the drips! :lol: ;)

Technically not a classics figure but acquired Real Gear Booster x10 from eBay, looks great with my Device Lable Soundwave, can't believe I didn't pick this guy up when first released.

Finally opened up my FOC G2 Bruticus and got a chance to mess around with it. The quality and paint apps definitely aren't comparable to the older generations guys but they are not terrible. Seems like they had a good idea and then started rounding corners when it came to production (like exposed hands on Swindle and Onslaught's goofy alt mode) but at $70 or whatever the G2 one was I dont regret it.

All the figures were fun to transform (although I thought I was going to break a couple because of the thin plastic) and Bruticus isnt all that goofy once you mess around with him a little. I took a silver sharpie to Swindle's wheel to dress him up a bit and may mess around with them somewhere to break up the drabness.

Has anyone gotten any of the Takara versions in hand? Id be curious to see how much better the paint apps are.

Cant imagine dropping nearly $40 on one of these figures. Makes 3rd party stuff seem like a good deal.

got FOC ultra magnus and Air Raid from Toys R us at buy one get the other at 50% off and also pre ordered takaras ratbat. was a bit reluctant to get both these guys since i was looking for kickback and starscream. but i have to say both have grown on me since playing with them a bit.

gotta say air raids head would make for a great IDW-esque custom chromedome.

Well I've held off buying a Hasbro Inferno for quite some time now and it paid off. I oh so wanted the brighter red with chrome Takara version but could never find one for under $100 US. Those days are over, finally scored one.

How is he quality-wise? I passed on him earlier (and a SDCC Nemesis Prime), and now I'm starting to regret it.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

He is actually really good. I had to move a couple of pieces on the smoke stacks/gun around that were installed wrong from the factory and although it holds in truck mode, it's a little loose. The paint is very nice and I'm loving the black legs to combine with Dark skyfire. Surprisingly the joints are nowhere near as loose as I would've expected. I rate the quality against my Takara and Hasbro Optimus around a solid 8/10 compared to those figures. I may have been lucky though, I've heard the quality varies on these. Good Luck.
