    I with in a couple of weeks will be buying Fansproject's Warcry and Flameblast.
    Perfect Effect's Scouting force X and Junkion blacksmith's JB-06 Infinity Warfare II Set not decided on the color at this time.

    just wondering if there is anything i should know about any of these items, I know Warcry and Flameblast don't have the combination parts of Muntioner and explorer so no need to say that.

    Some of you who know how much i have rallied against 3rd party products are gonna pulled a " I told you so' but hey , this stuff is cool so i decided to go for it.

    Anyone who mocks u-turns is an arse and to be ignored. Welcome to the fold of good toys!

    Warcry and Flameblast are generally solid figures, but you have to approach them with a nervousness at first - same for any third party figure, really. Kid gloves and watch a video or two whilst you have them in front of em, so you discover the weaker/thinner/delicate-er parts of the figures the easy way. :D 

    Scouting Force X are amazing figures too. Tiny, but glorious.

    I plan on doing so later tonight, perhaps multiple reviews. Rather not break these guys with the price of them which I feel in the case of my selections is worth it , just can't make my self pony $600 for hercules though XD .

    Thanks now where are my cookies? :lol

    Me neither. Especially after hearinabout the troubles some folks had with it. I ended up starting into Giant territory instead, much to my wallets dismay, but it's much cheaper and I prefer the aesthetic. :D

    The cookies were a lie, but you can have some awesome toys instead. (In exchange for all of your money)

    Welcome home, brother!

    The earlier poster was dead on re: the two FansProject toys you got. Personally, I think the scouting force is a better value, and I hope you enjoy them!

    The Infinity Warfare Set II isn't so great unless you already have Set I, of if you only intend to use the individual parts uncombined. Combined, the two sets are awesome.

    If Giant was as big as Hercules, I think I might have jumped.

    I flat out don't like Hercules aesthetic (at least the individual bots). I like Giant better, but I'm still not drooling over it. Unfortunately the thing that really excited me about Hercules was the size. I liked the idea that it would tower over even my larger figures. It only sort of did, which means the cooler Giant really won't. :(

    No, the cake turned out to be true. But the Dark Side cookies have always been a lie.

    Seriously though, if you're an older TF fan, some 3rd party products can be like a dream come true. They do a pretty good job at covering the holes left by HasTak.
