My collection focuses on Transformers characters. I'm not too interested in non-TF characters, with a few exceptions. This set just isn't for me, regardless of the quality (notice I'm not saying it doesn't look good). I feel this way about all the PCC; I only got Grimstone for obvious reasons. About the only set I'd like to see similarily upgrade is the Protectobots. Because I care so little about them that their lack of G1-ness won't bug me at all.
Im not in any way knocking you, but I got a question ? You say your collection focuses on "Transformers characters". Is Bombshock not a Transformers character ? Or did you mean to say "G1 Transformers characters" ?
Also, what is your stance on comic book inspired characters getting a place in your collection ? The reason I ask this is because I feel Drift is no more of a Transformers character than an upgraded Bombshock. Drift, Impactor, Sentinal Prime, The Fallen, are all examples of how somebodys idea can become part of the TF continuity and even stand side by side with G1 characters. Even funpub has created "characters" that have become accepted as part of the mainstream continuity.
