Meh....still knock kneed.
Come'on Devy, we look to you to go beyond. That there is just putting a Band aid on a bullet wound.
I think he wouldn't look so "knock knee'd" if they would have made the light pink ratchet joints at full 90 degree angles- I might actually consider buying this if that is possible
It looks good but way to expensive for what it is and does. ($18.99 on BBTS) really Just too much for a wait piece that is purely cosmetic and does nothing to up grade the figure in any meaningful way.
I understand how the whole 3rd party things goes for why they cost too much but this one I have a hard time with.
CDMW-33 Sea Brigade Power Parts Custom Waist Shield - Third Party Transforming Toys & Accessories CrazyDevy
I'll get it when it goes on sale.
The one thing I want to see Crazy Devy do is make some Scramble City feet plates with ankle-tilts to take advantage of the little leg articulation those figures have. That should't be to diffucult for them, should it?
Wait, we do? I though we looked to them for overpriced, barely wanted G1 upgrades that you will have to wait years to complete a set.
Color me surprised.
I appreciate what they're trying to do here, but I'm not giving them $18 for that.
"Barely wanted" insinuates that there's maybe more than one person who gives a crap about CD's releases.
Maybe CD should recognize the corollary to supply and demand in that, if they have to charge ridiculous prices for nothing to cover the low demand vs. the overhead, then maybe the demand just isn't there?
Things to make as a third party company: Piranacon's crotch... Check.
What a "waist" of money!
I keed, have a great weekend, spend it with your Seacons.
But not cheap enough.
Hm... considering BBTS is *still* trying to sell the Seacon's exclusive at 35 bucks... not sure if many folks will buy many upgrades... especially when a one or two pieces will cost the same as the set itself!
CD really should just make full upgrade kits and lower their prices down a bit. Really, some single pieces sell for 25-35$ each... Get a full kit like the G1 Devy upgrades... you're spending well over 100 bucks.
That was awesome.
I'll wait for the X-Transbots KO of the full set for $40.
I rather like it. I know Crazy Devy has a bad reputation for overpriced accessories, but I've committed so far to the combiner upgrades, and will not be stopping now. Bring on more Bruticus, Menasor, and Superion upgrades, I say!
I second that! I would like to see more Superion, Bruticus, and Menasor upgrades as well. Come on Crazy Devy!
Personally, I see any form of G1 "upgrade" as horrifically missing the point. The toys are a product of their time. Let them remain that way. Don't band-aid patch them until they're simultaneously no longer vintage, and yet fail at looking modern at the same time.
Kinda like the George Lucas approach to the original Star Wars trilogy...
But hey, your money is your money...
20 bucks says this somehow destroys something on the toy. I mean, this is CD we're talking about, they make over priced crap that does little to nothing to improve and older toy, and half the time it screws something up. Lamest 3rd party ever
