"POS"?
:???:



I think he's saying pile (or piece) of sssshhhhh........

I too only got shockwave because there wasn't one in my collection. I'm getting G2 Bruticus only because I love the color and packaging. The only other ones I'll be getting is Starscream (sucker for the seekers), Ultra Magnus (only for that 3rd party kit I saw to add on to him), and maybe Grimlock if I like seeing it in person.



Grimlock is gonna be terrible. i have a feeling.... :-?

No way. Grimlock is going to be sweet!!!

I have a opinion about the small sizes....yeah it is probably a cost thing. But I think it is also to separate it from regular classics. Hasbro doesn't want you to throw a FOC Shockwave into your classics lineup...they want you to buy the proper larger classics G1 Shockwave a couple years down the road. They want to keep you wanting more! And as a result you buy both.

...that is also why I feel we haven't gotten certain characters/toys yet, like a proper widespread release of a g1 classics Soundwave...to keep you wanting more and keep you interested.

My only significant probllem with FoC Jazz is his legs. They are too short for the rest of the figure, giving him a lot goofier proportions than, well, Special Ops Jazz.

Weapon: Ion Particle Blaster
SpecOps Jazz is pretty much the Gold standard for deluxe Transformers.....a heck of a lot of Classics look "disappointing" when compared to Him (Hound anyone?) so it's not that much of a surprise that a fill-in line like this doesn't measure up either. I dont hate FOC Jazz, and there are way worse TF's to get steamed up about, but once a character has been dead-on nailed like Jazz was for RTS it can be hard to accept way less 2 years down the line.

I'm looking forward to FOC Magnus....I think he's going to be fun, if totally and utterly useless for scale on anything other than Robot-masters and I'm hoping that Grimlock IS as promising as he looks.....and not another fizzle when in hand. That's it though.

Thank the Maker there are MP's to look forward to..........FOC is pretty thin gruel.

I have Shockwave. I like him a lot.

I preordered Soundwave and Ultra Magnus.

I will be buying all of Soundwave's minions and Kickback. Grimlock is a maybe until I see more pictures.

I own Shockwave, Prime and Jazz. Shockwave is good, no real flaws. He's on my Classics shelves.

Prime is all right, nothing outstanding but nothing bad. He and Jazz are on my FOC/Prime shelves.

Jazz is... disappointing. Small, hollow, plain, lacking articulation that RTS Jazz had, a tiny pea-shooter of a gun. Disproportionate too.

I'm waiting on the Wrecker remolds. They'll go on my Classics shelves.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Hey, I think classics Hound is awesome! The only problem is with his shoulder mounted weapon, and there are ways to sorta deal with that. I also added a tiny bit of super glue to stiften his crotch plate, and now it just folds up and stays there. Ya ya, sexual innuendo.

These are some of the classics that are pretty damn perfect to me, and perhaps what I rate against (in no order):

Classics prime
RTS Jazz
Sargeant Kup
Wreck-Gar
Sunstreaker/Sideswipe
Warpath
Blurr/Drift
RTS Perceptor
Wheeljack
Straxus
Cyclonus
Scourge
Terradive
Lugnut

All these figures are perfect to me. I would have added Thunderwing, but since he is smaller than the Character, I left him out.
FOC Magnus is going to be awesome once the add on kit arrives for him, I know it. So that'll fix the size issue, and you will have a bulky UM that isn't round (prme) or TOO bulky (city commander)

I had an orgasm when I saw a demonstration of Soundwave ejecting his minions from his chest and to see them auto-transform when they fly out.

I'm so getting FOC Soundwave and his minions! :x
