toyzz unlimited devcon?

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about unlicensed and knock off TF products.

Haha you poor lost "official" soul.. ;)



I'm not lost on anything. Have fun overpaying for items of dubious quality at best.


I am, and they're a blast! I <3 my Hardhead upgrade. :x

Because that **** is hot, son! Also, hahahahaaaa. There's nothing "knock-off crap" about any of the fansproject or head robots stuff. The 3rd party market is vastly more professional and useful than it has ever been before. I don't get a lot of the resistance from some folks when some of the newer 3rd party items are dirt cheap for quality items they are. Blanket statements regarding this stuff kinda shows ignorance and close-mindedness.
:BOT:


Good call on the Hardhead. I'm really glad I went in on that one. As a matter of fact, I think I like Hardhead more than all of my Fansproject upgrades. :KREMZEEK:

Proof that 3rd party stuff doesn't have to be expensive to be good.

Hmmm...why am I not hearing ANY of the same derision, scorn, blatant rudeness that I received way back when I was so supportive of Drift long prior to his actual production.
This guy has an appearance way back in G1, which for the life of me I can't even remember such an appearance, and folks are like "meh".

Whatever! =; Even thinking back on the whole experience makes me officially pissed off and wholly against this character, this figure (real or imagined) and anything having to do with it. :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

That's an easy question to answer: Devcon didn't make his first appearance in All Hail Megatron, one of the most divisive pieces of Transformers fiction ever written. Devcon wasn't characterized as an ultimate Shonen Jump badass for the other established Autobots to ooh and ah over. Devcon didn't get a contrived backstory about being a former Decepticon. Heck, Devcon doesn't have any backstory. He's just a generic bounty hunter.

Drift, in concept, is cool. He's a Japanese race car that seems pretty up-to-date with modern trends. Too bad the way he was introduced into Transformers fiction makes me want to pour kerosene on all of my IDW trade paperbacks, light a match, and then slow cook every god damn Classics toy in my collection into a pile of plastic goo.

I tried to like Drift, but I just can't. He's awful. A Devcon toy, on the other hand, has working potential.
