My Seekers: Aces box set showed up this morning :) but I've had to do abit of fettling to Skywarp to get everything to close up properly in his chest. The bit that the cockpit swivels on, then folds up into it was the problem. The two pieces are held together by a pin, but there is a 1mm gap were it should be tight to each other. Thundercracker had a lose arm cannon peg hole, but a tweak with a screwdriver soon sorted that out. Starscream so far is fault free ;)

Now that I've had a chance to look at my Aces set, oh dear! I've only really had a good look at Skywarp so far. I'm kinda scared to have a really good look at the other two.
Skywarp has a big flake of paint in his right shoulder intake that's really noticeable. His left wing is floppy, while the right one is tight.
On all three the mold degration is really noticeable (back of thigh is really bad) when standing beside my Henkei and Hasbro releases.

Edit: Have had a better look at SS and TC now. SS seems ok bar the mold problems, both wings are tight and the paint is ok. Thundercracker on the other hand has a left floppy wing. The paint stripes on the topside of the wing are fine, but the stripes on the underside are really sloppy in places. Drips of the purple paint on the bracket of one wing. Oh, and the decepticon badges on the wings, one is higher than the other.

I did not wanted to wait and ordered FOC Shockwave and the two minion sets for 65$ shipped from China.

I got the things today. Man, was I impressed! EVERYTHING IS GREAT LOOKING IN ALL MODES! The disk launcher dont work perfectly because the disks tend to get stuck but it's no biggie. Also, why you guys keep saying that Ravage is crap? He's the best of the minions and my clear favorite, along Ratbat. What more, this is a decent sized voyager.

Man, I'm happy! :grin:

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.

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.
