    I've heard stories, especially about Apollyon, but I only own three XTB figures- Paean, Andras, and Klaatu. Paean is a little fiddly going to truck mode, just getting everything tabbed just right, but is pretty straightforward. Klaatu is easy. And Andras would be easy except his feet are a pain.

    I guess? I mean, again, I've heard all kinds of horror stories about XTB/KFC, but I haven't really had any problems with the few figures I own from them. The thumb on my Andras broke, but I got replacement parts. The KFC hands are just a poor design- too many ball joints on too-thin stalks. Nothing broke on Paean, but I had every finger but the pinky fall off his hand when I transformed him (they all popped back on). No issues with Klaatu.

    I have the Kotobukiya SD figures and I'm afraid the heads are HEAPS bigger than an MP head. You can see in the photo's below the Megatron and Optimus SD's compared with other figures. WAY too big for this. They're even a smidgeon too large for MPP figures. It's a fun idea though.

    I don't know, but there's nothing in there to clip to so I can only assume they're glued?

    I got this guy because I love Starscream and don't mind multiple versions but I'm not sure I'm ready to go down the seeker rabbit hole again myself.

    DAMN they look good! Loving the white paint on Soundwave. And while i personally prefer the paler lavender for Shocky, thats a great custom paint job. And the boots actually work really well!! You're right though, a bigger head on Meteor would be awesome.

    I can't believe I never noticed the boots before you mentioned it...that's the Shockwave I want. Hell,that's the Decepticon shelf I want. Great collection TigerBlade.

    ugg....I caved on this as well as noise maker and bent azure. I don't know if I'm mad at MaKe' Toys for making the sculpt just good enough for me to cave, takara for raking me over the coals on the remake of an already crap mold, or myself for letting these collection of idiots do it. #pennyless #g1forever

    For me it was either these or/and the better-than-Takara Yes Model KOs.

    My Yes Model KOs are here to stay for sure. The quality on them is superb. Their alt mode rocks including the pilot/cockpit gimmick. Plus as time goes on they will become rare. There's not a way to reach out Yes Model for any inquiries later. I may or may not get the MT versions, we'll see. Never say never. I have Meteor already.
