    i didn't see one made (and yes i did a forum search) and thought we needed one since the Combaticons have started showing up at retail. this thread works like any other appreciation thread so the rules should be well-known

    I really like Shockwave and I'm looking forward to Bruticus.

    I just wish Grimlock was out now.

    I'm sure some talented customizers can make use of this like say a FOC Breakdown used for a FOC Menasor?

    Really? They shrink by a head and you act like they are Micro Machines now. I do not understand people...

    Anyway, yeah, I'm digging these figures. I'd say the War figures are hands down better but the Fall figures are pretty good. I'm going to be buying every mold. Some I'll buy multiples of because I have to make my custom characters. :)

    So far I only have Shockwave and I enjoy him very much. I'm definitely looking forward to getting several of the Combaticons sets (G2, Retail, Wreckers) seeing as they look like very fun figures, plus the combiner mode can really shine once you fiddle around with it. Out of what's been released in Wave 1, so far only Shockwave appealed to me. Not entirely sure if I'll grab Jazz or Optimus, the price point I'm still getting used to and the distribution is saddening to say the least. However Shockwave needed to be painted up as the stock purple he came with looked inaccurate to the game model so I've taken the liberty of painting mine up and he looks so much better. :D

    I thought they would be horrible, especially bruticus but, after getting them, I thought otherwise... (ok maybe i'm still not liking the fruity colors :p  )

    I don't mind the size of the FoC figures. I paid 90 bucks for Scouting Force X and I have no regrets, and if I figure I'm willing to put that much money down on toys I like, then getting FoC stuff is a cinch. Anyways, I've got Jazz, Optimus, Shockwave, and an SDCC Bruticus. I intend to get every Bruticus deco that's gonna come out. :lol 

    Optimus is the only one that's disappointed me so far. It's hard to look at him without thinking how much better WfC Optimus is.

    @ Ryoku: Sorry for that, I just wanted to add some style to the pics :) 

    Anyway how's this for appreciation?

    The moment I got him, I decided NOT to follow hasbro's suggested transformation so I tried different configurations...

    Version 1

    [​IMG]

    First Try and I already see him as looking much better than Hasbro's baboon version however blast off and vortex had such limited posability in this version that I had to research and fiddle with fruiticus some more...

    So finally I came up with Version 2

    [​IMG]

    This version is much more improved and much more proportionate and stable, so stable that he can do this...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Standing on one foot was no problem, now I tried the crouching position...

    [​IMG]

    and he ddidn't even break a sweat!

    More pics....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and a comparison with FP Bruticus...

    [​IMG]

    Suddenly I feel like he's not so bad anymore, though colors and plastic quality could've been better...

    You mind if I ask how you got Bruticus' right forearm (Vortex hands) to stay together in your Version 2? I cannot for the life of me get those two pieces together.

    @Hellbot: I'll try and put up a step by step so that no one ever has to follow Hasbro's suggested transformation... :D
