    Probably, other than the missing pieces they are ok enough. I planned on keeping them in bot mode most of the time anyway

    They're tough getting in and out the first few times, but they loosen up.

    Ok so... I got a couple of these. I can’t figure out how to attach them to the seekers. Anyone have luck? There’s a crap load of parts in the little baggie.

    DX9 uses 3mm holes on their dudes, so you need the 3mm tip that's already on the articulated arm. Do not adjust the arm without loosening screws. These things are $3 shipped for a reason. You will snap yours, like I did one of mine, if you push them around too much without loosening.

    Attachment points on the back of Thundercracker. Unfortunately none of the holes in his butt will work. Lucky him.

    Suck it, Leia.

    Jet mode attachment points. OMG, WHY THEIR HANDS STICK OUT?!

    Thundercracker requesting fly-by..

    These things are handy for displays. I've combined two stands to make longer articulated arms to put Windblade and Swoop on here:

    I'll have to use some in my Cons display once the rest of Iron Factory's Bruticus comes. They're pretty sweet for a few bucks though.

    How well do these scale with FT-20 Terminus Giganticus or Titans Returns Fort Max?

    ...way too large for the true titans like metroplex and fortress maximus, but they scale spectacularly well with combiner wars devastator, and by extension may prove a touch too small for terminus giganticus...

    While myrrh is technically correct (the best kind of correct) that they're too large to be in true scale with Titans Return Fort Max... just about every transformer is. Maybe WST, old Micromaster, or even Legion class figures work a bit better, but to me one sacrifices too much detail, articulation, and fun by going that small. You also probably won't find the characters you're looking for.

    Titan figures like Metroplex, Fort Max, and Trypticon are designed to work with legends scale figures from a play-value point of view, not a G1/sunbow scale point of view... so if you have some Titan class city-bots, its absolutely worth picking up DX9, IF, or legends figures from any manufacturer to go with them.

    They are. I recently picked up all 6 PT seekers. So far they're great and at lower cost. I got all 6 from Taobao for $49 shipped.

    I love the squared off intakes and face sculpts not to mention the canopy raising to hide the neck joint. I think the pocket toys are my favorite.
