    Yea, as title states, I finally found a good deal on an authentic Cliffjumper kit, so I jumped on it. Can't wait to have it here and have my FP stuff completed.

    But, that got me to thinking, there is a LOT of good third party stuff out there, and a lot, since I'm newer, are out of production. What are some that are "worth the hunt"?

    Do you have City Commander? That's pretty much FansProject's defining work.

    Yea, as stated, I have every FP item, including Scyther. My fav is the XF-02 bruticus kit, but even ones I didn't initially like, liek protector, have frown on me.

    Oh, right. I totally paid attention to the first post.
    Anyways, I've expended my usefulness in this area.

    Yea, I meant grown, hahaha. And, I won't have mine till ext week, but here:

    HKTFP-001 Cliffjumper Upgrade Coversion Kit Fansproject

    And it's not limited to FP stuff guys. I'm asking for anything that's 3rd party and really worth going after. I know that the T.A.W. god sword kit for Nemesis Prime looks pretty kickass.

    [​IMG] :rock 

    off top of my head-

    Impossible toys: quintesson bunch, energon cubes, various toon humans, arcee & nightbird

    igear: wreckers acc kit, ark playset, autoscout kits (with the kremzeeks and energon cubes)

    the only things I know of to officially be out of production are the fp cj kit, snowman kit, and cc kit. Ive never read or heard of them, or anyone else, saying that they wont make anymore of x item, personally.

    Blurr - Since you have it, how hard was it to glue on the bumper pieces and fender?

    LOL There's that upgrade to the City Commander set with the new head and face. I think it might've come with missile launchers too. And no, I don't mean the actual FansProject one. It was done by someone else. And was awful.

    Got mine with pieces in place already, duckman. Its not hard though. An unused kit I imagine would run in the 300+ range typically, hound.

    Edit: ppl say to use hobby glue and shit.. I say use a dab of hot glue. Your not gonna be playing with em or anything, might as well leave as little permanent damage as possible.

    Yea, wasn't it Igear... with the hammer and stuff?

    Yea, they're normally 350-400 whenever they're on sale. I got mine for around half of that business.

    ... and, just call me TJ :lol

    TJ, you gotta take a picture of Wheeljack with the CJ cannon. Looks almost like the shockblast cannon WJ used in "Heavy Metal War"

    That would be the IGear upgrade, and yes - it's awful.

    -The head is too small
    -My CC can't hold the hammer because the handle/staff part is too large for the holes in his fists
    -The flag is plain green with no Wreckers logo
    -The rifle can be held, but somewhat awkwardly
    -The missile launchers are the only worthwhile part, but even they're not that great.

    Avoid it.

    It's more toward the 'garage kit' end of things, but the Universe Roadbuster upgrade kits by Nato-Bot (there's two: head & rifle, and large cannon) are pretty nice.

    I was really disappointed by the CJ kit... mostly because of the gluing and that there was a mold defect on my bumper where it's slightly bent.

    And mine is real before anyone asks. I got it wayyyy back in the day, long before we had a such thing as KO's of garage kits.

    Congrats on the kit. The only thing that I would want from the FP CJ kit is the bazooka. Otherwise, the Devilhorns one does very well for me.

    As for what others have said, I echo the voice to get Nanobot's Roadbuster Upgrade.

    bro = \. you know I cant do that ;;. From the moment I met you, and ace duck from tmnt popped up in my head, it was like a story written in the stars ^^

    Couldnt disagree more, personally. The hammer is epic for me (partly being a huge animated fan), the missle launchers are so much > than fp's (dont hate me fp, I still love you most of all), the gun is an amazing stand in for springers LSOTW riffle, and the sword is such a titts compliment to the shadow cc's red one. Ill give you the flag is kinda meh but, it also leaves you able to put your OWN logos on em as well (which I have on a couple). That shitty head is on one of those blue pikes being held by straxus in my crazy little classics universe too xD.

    got the fucking shit out of that 20 bucks


    edit: and yeah the nato bot roadbuster kit.. forgot about that. Things sweet, wish he went on to make more stuff;;
