    So I just got my FP bruticus together and my god, I cant believe i waited this long. I just picked up a few limbs from a couple of friends of mine! I had the FP figures for a while now. I'm amazed at how well this was executed.

    Has this happened to you? What figure was it?

    I still have my FP Explorer and Mutioner parts in their boxes and haven't put them on my ROTF Combaticons yet! I think i just played with the rifles and thats it! HAHA. I am looking forward to having a big TF opening party when we move to our new place. TFCC Punch/Counterpunch, Rapido, Streetstar, etc etc etc. Lots of new stuff to play with, so I will be late too.

    overlord and liokaiser come to mind when reading this lol, as soon as i had them in hand i was like why didn't we get these here?

    for 3rd party stuff, not really, i usually get them right away, but missed on the cj kit, don't want to pay $300 for it either, might see if i can render my own body kit for him and get a head from whoever does the best one

    Not too late to the party here, but I just got some United figures like Jazz and Tracks and older/newer releases as such. Jazz is so frickin awesome, so awesome that I don't really feel the need to own a G1 Jazz, much like lots of my Classics to G1 counterparts.

    I bought the first wave of FP bruticus. I also bought Bruticus at target when it came out. I have yet to open it. It's still sitting in my trunk. Been so busy.

    Maybe some unconventional selections here, but the Robot Heroes, Mighty Muggs, WSTs, and the Robot Masters Lio Convoy mold fit the bill for me.

    WHAT ???? Have you gone mad bro ?

    :D 

    Please make yourself a favor Fab: combine all that shit and after tell me the feeling :D 

    Anyway coming back to the thread object, I felt the same feeling when for the first time I combined Star Saber and Victory Leo or Galaxy Convoy or Brave Great Goldran :)

    I still want the set. Just cannot afford it yet. Saving up for a nice lens, but then there is DOTM stuff coming too.
    I want them just for the stand alone figures, But I have some miss-matched Limbs lying around. What is the going price for the two these days?
    I also need to catch up on classics stuff, IE all the stuff that people are wanting now: Lungnut, Perceptor, G2 Prime, Kup, Wheeljack, Thundercracker, The whole lot. My stores are so bad, just found the Terradive wave...
    Late To the Party- Terradive. Good figure, missed the hype buy. Also- FP Warbot. Got it at Botcon a few Months after its release. I still need the heel spurs though...

    tbh, only combiners ever give me that feeling. So the next one to give me a feeling, would be TFC Devy. Unless there is a combiner between that.

    tbh, I like the devil's horn CJ kit better for CJ upgrades. The only thing thawt FP did that I want is that bazooka, but I am about to have custom weapons for them anyways.

    CC, and protectors (and all variation) did give me the "Wow", and so did most other third party/some of has/tak stuff.


    But the one thing that gives me the DAMN (in a positive connotation) is when a real combiner is formed.

    The Devil Horns kit is excellent.
    The head is far superior to the flat-nosed FP version (IMO) and both guns are perfect for Cliffjumper.
    Also, helluva lot cheaper...

    Back on topic - RID Rail Racer did it for me.

    The head comment is absolutely true. The only thing I dislike is the big gun on that kit. (could have been done better, this is where the FP one wins out a little)

    RiD Rail Racer? top notch. That did it for me.

    Well, because I missed out on the entire first round of the Aerialbot Appendage set and was unwilling to spend over $200USD on the thing I have to say that when round 2 of the thing was released, at the original price no less, in an ever so small increment I was on top of it. I got the entire thing together and was tickled pink with giddiness! Compared to what the original configuration was that thing was a dramatic improvement.

    I don't own the Bruticus set myself but I have heard nothing but good things about it. The pictures of the entire assembled set I have seen next to Superion made me say, "Wow! That thing is huge!" Other than that, I have also picked up the DIA Commander Armor set for my Classics Prime and Spring... er I mean Warbot Defendor. I can't say that I am disappointed with either one.

    I just opened up Protector yesterday. Bought him on POL when he came out and didn't ship until last week. Great little set and very well worth it to me. I am surprised that he hasn't been sold out everywhere yet. I guess he did have a second run that was contiguous with the first run still available.

    not impressed with the devil horns kit, the face is too rounded imo, and the guns look under detailed and want the car mode to be modified as well, maybe sometime i'll spring for the fp cj kit, but if i can render up a nicer body kit and get an upgrade from venksta for him, i'll get that instead
