How can anybody even still talk about FP Aerial Appendage set being better than this ??? And Im not talking s**t because I already own the FP set and I still want this bad boy !!!
Because each one of these guys costs as much as the FP set, and FP Superion scales with FP Bruticus and MT Giant better than Uranos. I like these guys, but it's way too much money for me to plop down.
What he said. I just do not like the scale that TFC is doing. It's too pricey and not my style at all.
I'll spend the 550ish on something else.
Scale is a losing battle with 3rd party combiners. Im going all G1 for my classics shelf. (cartoon G1)
Scale is hilariously wrong in Transformers in general. I'm not pretending otherwise. I adore TFWiki's Scale
You gotta admit that the various 3rd party companies are kind of in sync with actual alt mode scale...
Construction vechicles (TFC)- huge
Jet fighters (TFC)- huge
Fighters are usually bigger than cranes and bulldozers. In this case Uranos scales more accurately with Giant if we're going for real-world scale. Also Silverbolt should be tremendously bigger than the other Aerialbots using G1 alt modes.
Combat vechicles (FP) - mid sized
Stunticon cars (FP)- small
Beasts (MMC predacons) - Huge
Um. No. A rhino is about the size of a pickup truck. Lions, tigers, and bulls are about the size of a small car. An eagle is about a third the size of the average human, with a wingspan of about 6-8 feet. In real scale the Predacons should be the smallest combiner team.
Besides the Maketoy Giant indivdual robot modes suck
Eh, they've both got their merits. Most people seem to prefer Giant overall, for various reasons like money.
I'm indifferent on this one, although I prefer Hercules's combined mode. I own neither set.
and the FP Superion individual robot modes are well...Hasbroish !!!
Some of us think that's okay! :O
To get back to the original point, I respect your preference, and I even agree with some of the original points you made in favor of Uranos, but you said "How can anybody even talk about the FP set being better than this?" and I gave you some reasons why.
