    Here's a quick review of the TFC Exgraver figure, my first review so bare with me.

    Overall very impressed with quality, it feels like an official product which surprised me pleasantly. Joints are all tight and its got some weight to it. Paint apps are great and quality control seems good, only flaw with mine was a stray silver paint blotch but easily fixable. If you have any comparison picture requests let me know and i'll provide them if i can. On to some pics:

    Wow that was quick! :D  His robot mode looks nice - I like the chunky sort of look these guys have.

    I like it, but something just seems off. As the previous post said, he looks "Chunky":2c: 


    Well, the decision between Devastators is only getting harder lol

    I actually kind of like that robot mode. But I'm still going for the MakeToys Devastator instead. I don't have the money for a $600 Devs and I'm too impatient to wait months just to complete the combined mode

    Let's get a picture of Exgraver next to a ruler, you know for shits and giggles :D 

    The figure looks fantastic. I'm not worried at all with this project and it looks like my money is going to be well spent.

    idk....i just don't know.

    for some reason I think I'm gonna just go ahead and wait for the other Devastator before deciding in this one. again, it just feels to RID to me.

    The only thing i dont like.. is for the amount of money and the size of this figure.. seems like such a simple cheezy transformation.. Its like 3 steps and hes already transformed!
    I think i have a McDonalds toy that has more transformation than that... lol :)

    well these new pics might be a game changer for this guy. Given the total cost of the completed Gestalt i was very aprehensive about sinking that much cash into a set of toys, but if the arm is giong to be as big as a voyager class figure i may have to reconsider. to keep the total figure in scale with its self the legs are going to have to be just as big if not larger. So the final figure will tower over even leader class figures and for my collection conserned, Masterpeice figures. I have the money for this figure now and i should have all of the money i need for the rest of them now i just have to convince myself that i want these figures as my MP verson of the consrtuctcons.

    looks big, but I still wont make a move until i see the otehr 2 not constructicons and a complete not devy pic. I like the size of these guys but I like the look of the MT one better and since scale is all over the place in transformers anyhow I would rather have the MT at this point. But that may change once I see a complete TFC.

    Isn't that a sort of elegance that should be admired? They managed to make it look good in all three modes without having to do a ton of crazy ROTF-Prime level steps.
