    This little guy is awesome. Can't really say I have any interest in any other RG except for the video game controller (which is designed by the same guy), but I really appreciate this guy. Simplicity at it's best. The only downside I can find is that the head only rotates and that the neck doesn't bend. If I can get the MP3 player cover portions of the wings apart w/o breaking them I'll repaint one as Buzzsaw since the origional deco might as well be Lazerbeak

    I really liked him too. A buzz saw repaint would be awesome.

    If you have some extra bucks the camera (spy shot?) is also a peasant surprise.

    For my money, Spy shot was the best. Power Up has automorphing, which is braggable.

    SpyShot the camera is hands-down the best Real Gear. Nice simple design, really great range of articulation (takes poses like you wouldn't believe), has a face with some personality (and light piping). He is, as they say, made out of win. :) 

    Booster (or Boosterbeak as I often call him) is great, though it would have been better if the translucent orange bits were maybe a different colour. He needs some better authentic detailing on his display screen.

    I modded my Boosterbeak to have neck articulation, which considerably improves the posing ability of the figure. Here's the link to the post, with pics:

    Convinced myself I need to pick up at least a couple real gears. Haven't done so yet, but I will at some point.

    Plan on getting:
    Booster X10
    Spyshot
    Meantime
    Speedial/Wiretap

    I got speed dial first. the cell phone mode isn't as realistic as it seems, it's a little too thick. It's the second closest.
