    I have a set of F&R pimped with Crazy Devy pile drivers to go with my MP line ko oversized Soundwave. Now I am looking to get some F&R love for my classics line. So I was wondering, what would you guys recommend for my classics line?

    I was thinking that I could save a couple of bucks by getting the RTS F&R (if we ever see them here). Should I wait for those, or should I go for the PE ones.

    If people are saying the PE ones, do you know any place that would still have these?

    Thanks,

    I am getting both. (have PE already). I really do like the PE ones, but they are expensive now. You might be able to find a forum member selling them, though.

    I think size-wise they are better. They "technically" don't have pile drivers, but then again, they have 2 giant machine guns that you can consider as pile drivers.

    I'm getting the United ones, since I don't trust Hasbro enough to make the red one, and the PE ones are pricey for the size.

    Definitely PE's FR for me. Their scale fit very well with the rest of the figures. Still getting the United version though...just to see how they are

    my idea is to mount the PE versions to the United versions :p  FRENZY WITH FRENZY TARGETMASTER!

    And then ofcourse, arming Optimus with optiaim, etc.

    Perfect Effect. They are better than most figures four times their size! (and that's most figures)

    Availability of RTS Rumble is in doubt.
    Existence of RTS Frenzy isn't even confirmed yet.

    *IF* one were considering United or RTS, United seems like minor hassle in the short term to avoid likely greater hassle in the long run.

    Perfect Effect, the quality on these guys is solid and I think they are really good representations of the figures. The OOOONNNNLLLYYYY thing wrong with them is that they don't become outdated, a kid these days probably never seen one, cassette tape. As you can see that isn't a big deal at all.

    I also have PE Ratbat which has it's charm and makes for a very big and very cool trident.

    I am waiting for the inevitable Sun and Moon repaint into Laserbeak and Buzzsaw. Not to mention Reflector.

    To be (this is based on 3 products that I own, Rewind and Eject are in the mail to make 5) PE is a sold third party group ranking in the top spots.

    I'm pretty sure that's the Cybertron/Galaxy Force Laserbeak.

    Soooo.... I stopped hating on these guys and came to my senses. I just preordered them from BBTS. That picture Unicron Nemesis posted was just so badass.

    I don't like their crappy alt modes but their bot modes are nice. I'll try getting the United versions also. If I don't like them I'll just resell them.
