    Okay, ship out now. Along with Cheetor.

    Nope. I'm happy with my third party choices.

    I don't know, some people like their toys to actually look good... instead if mimicking half-assed, wholly-inconsistent animation models. Some don't - different strokes for different folks. Buy what you like.

    That said, I think Grapple is looking quite good (added detail REALLY helps)

    Except the 'added detail' is actually there because it's on the "half-assed wholly inconsistent animation model"...

    And I don't think any of the 3P Infernos or Grapples look good at all. Pinched waists or snow shoe duck feet? No thanks.

    Like I said, different strokes. What appeals to a person is totally subjective anyway. I often like my transformers' proportions on the "hero" side - whilst others are happy with the tubby look. ;)

    I was all set to get Backdraft then Takara shows Inferno and I dropped the Backdraft preorder so fast.
    The Grapple wars aren't even close, it's laughable.

    New images of Megatron but none of Grapple?

    Come on Takara, show me some love for Grapple! Only a week to go and we've not seen ANYTHING in hand.

    This may be the least disputed MP figure in recent times!

    Can't wait for him to come in.

    Youll be waiting with the rest of us, they don't ship till the 25th. I still got my Inferno before most people they ship pretty quick.

    I have 3 other figs on an order with Cheetor and Grapple. I can't wait for these to ship!

    Was looking more forward to Grapple than Inferno.

    Well that's an incredibly backhanded attempt at amicable conversation.

    Usually when someone offers to let bygones be bygones, it's not immediately following them saying other peoples' preference is shit and doesn't look good.
