    I'm looking for an Autobot combiner to balance out my shelf opposite FP Brut, and I've been hearing for quite some time now that RailRacer is one of the best. I missed a lot of the RiD days, Scourge, FireConvoy and UltraMags were my first purchases getting back into buying TFs (and that was post RiD). And they are still my only RiD figures. But due to all of the buzz, RR may be my next pick up.

    I'm mainly looking for comparisons size/scale wise. In combined mode most importantly, but also in individual bot and alt modes if possible.

    Also, I'm wondering how they compare/contrast in aesthetics, articulation/posability, and just how "compatible" they both are overall.

    Also, if you have any other nominations for Autobot combiners that can go toe to toe with FP Brut, I'd very much like to hear them. Since I already have FP Brut on the shelf, and Maketoy's Giant just about to drop (and FP Menasor rumored to be on the horizon), I'm hoping to even out the sides a bit.

    I wonder if Cybertron Metroplex would look good against FP Bruticus.

    Much appreciated gents!

    Never thought of Metroplex. My mind was just stuck on combiners. Any other "over-sized" Autobots that could square off against these new, 3rd party, Decepticon combiners?

    And then there's also FP Superion and Masterpiece Grimlock on the shelf by him.

    So, there are definitely some options if you don't want to have to fuck up your classics shelves with G1.

    Thanks for the pics guys!

    I considered FP Superion, but even though I do like the way he looks, he seems a bit flimsy and underwhelming when compared with his combaticon counterpart.

    Railracer is a bit too stumpy next to him for my taste. Metroplex seems a little more compatible, but his aesthetics are a bit off.

    That Nexus Maximus is sweet TJ. Have you considered putting some paint in that bad boy and customizing his FP parts like you did to the other set? Would be pretty sweet I bet!

    Anymore pics (both combined/individual bot & Alt modes) would be greatly appreciated!
