Damn. Sadly i'm a bit underwhelmed. I didn't have a Bruticus so I ordered one for $80 and then another $90 on the FP figures & upgrade parts. I'm just not seeing a $170 figure. :-( Hopefully when I have them all in hand I will be blown away by it, but just from watching this, I fear they will be left MISB to be sold later.

That's how I felt about CityCommander and then I finally had him in hand and man did he blow me away. That's the odd thing this stuff looks so cool on pictures but then you get them in hand and you just think to yourself "Damn am I glad I got this. I was tempted to get a second set of the Superion add on just so I could display the parts in their plastic tray.... 8-} But I go to my senses.

Thanks for the reviews omaga, I'm looking forward to getting my hands on these things soon. :KREMZEEK:

I agree completely with this. I usually get buyer's regret with stuff that's usually small and costly, but not with the Shadow Commander and Superion upgrades.

Really you have to think about it this way, you are getting a few upgrade kits (Bruticus, Onslaught, Vortex, and Brawl) and two completely different figures, for a hundred bucks. The city commander trailers are a hundred now (or more), and they just upgrade. And you have the Superion upgrade for fifty bucks that just gives you... not really that much, although it really is worth it.

Glad you all like the videos. I had to break them up because my You Tube account only gives me 10 minutes and my camera only gives me limited space. Next up! I'll review my tattoos. :grin:

Let me know how that goes. I got enough to make a mini-series that I love to show off. Especially the one that goes from the back of my head to the bottom of my butt :P

Nice review! They look amazing. FP has really outdone themselves. Really ingenious design and engineering. Can't wait to get mine! :D

It's part of the set. Just a simple swap.

I didn't know that. Still, I like keeping them short. That way I don't ramble on and on. Just filmed one last video to finish it off. :grin:

Oh and thanks Seibertron for posting these.

Is there some phase where you make me break down and spend part of my Botcon savings on Bruticus for a majorly inflated price?

I just wanna know now ahead of time so that I know not to put that money in my savings account to begin with...

Just go very carefully. Once you get the feel for it, it gets easier.
