They look a lot like Knockout and Rippersnapper but without weapons.

Does that mean grimlock can form abominus leg? Assuming you mean grimlock is just a redco of rippersnapper.

Yep, just a repaint. Quite nice though and gives Divebomb a little friend.

Awesome, I love the terrorcon molds, trying to track them all down, though I'm unsure of what to do about the simplified deluxes. I love Cut-Throat and Sinner Twin but the toys...don't know what to do for the best.

You mean finding them or are they worth getting?

Worth getting :P the home bargains near me still seem to be stocking them, along with a never ending supply of lazerback and Soundwaves.

I wish I'd known that Soundwave was gonna be the new Bumblebee before I paid full price for it, ah well. As for the others, I got Windrazor because he was half price and I wanted someone with wings to fill out the Predacon shelf. I wasn't expecting much at all but I'm still surprised at how much I like him, he really 'came to life' when I opened him up and spent a good few weeks as my desk toy. The plastic feels somehow 'satisfying' and the sculpting is clean and looks good. His face looks great with the Starscreamesque smirk and the wingspan is pretty impressive. With a bit of silver Sharpie his weapon looks great given to AOE Slug. I'll stop gushing now but for what's really an up-scaled Legion I was very pleasantly surprised (bearing in mind that I paid £6.99), so much so that I went back and got Twinstrike who isn't quite as good but worth seven quid if you've got it going spare and like the look of him. Hope that helps, didn't mean to go into review mode :grin: .

Nah don't worry, that was great :D I do need some more preds. Twinstrike will make a nice companion for lazerback (well at least till I get Verta-Break) as the only preds without wings! I love the cutthroat sculpt as well, but then uI loved his G1 version as a kid, just found a stray Divebomb at home bargains.

Ordered (and received very quickly) a generations Thunderwing off amazon at long last-wonderfully fun figure even if my want for him was admittedly largely due to his role in the Matrix Quest marvel UK bit :lol:

So a trip into Middlesbrough to get my TF comic fix brought me face to face with my latest want, simplified voyager Predaking (they also had the simplified Prime but I'm not fussed on that). My god it makes the normal voyager look puny, the sword they gave him is leagues better then the others. The Entertainer didn't have much else apart from beast hunters stuff on sale and beast hunter Kre-o stuff.

the walmart/asda two packs were in my local Asda (well, one of them) today at £8 each. Had to get Slugdart and GrimCruel and the wee guys they come with are okay too. They had Bluerersaur and Bee too, but I passed.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I would be more thrilled about the grimlock set if they had also re-released Energon Swoop. Prime set I'll be on the look out for, but knowing my luck it'll be gone before I get the money -_-

I have Scoop. I was unsure as he looks a little simple etc but it's a decent, fun figure. You wouldn't be disappointed with Evasion Prime either.

Thanks Ravage, I had considered evasion prime but I was thinking of waiting for the evolution prime pack. I need both those moulds!
