    Oooh, who are the customs? I'd take guesses, but I think I'd be way off.

    Sorry, I guess I should have foreseen these questions. Those customs are my Fall of Cybertron multiplayer characters.

    The more I see Starscream, the more impatient I get waiting for him to pop up in retail lol.
    Especially since I will have his armada completed by the end of the day.

    Vortex finally arrived, so with intense anticipation, I set him loose from his plastic shell and finally assembled Bruticus! Extremely happy with this guy, and he (with a little fiddling and Jazz making a few 4ft drops) can hold some excellent poses!

    Lol yeah, kinda makes me want to buy Giant to see what they'd look like together, but alas, no monies and no real need for it since I have Herc. I hope these sell well enough for them to make more combiners in the future. Definitely looking forward to the Wreckers repaint now.

    Giant looks 10 times better. Even though the sizes are close enough to work, Bruticus just pales in comparison.

    at least foc Bruticus doesn't need a 6th robot.lol. but true giant does look better, not fond of the head though. Kind of on the subject. Can someone do a side by side of FOC Grimlock with universe Onslaught?

    I feel ya. Time are definitely a little tough. I was lucky to be able to buy Hercules back in February. I've only got enough budgeted for FOC Screamer and Kickback, TFP Magnus, FE Optimus, and maybe 3 or 4 Halo figures. And that'll hold me until I get my tax return, which will probably be spent on this year's Botcon Iacon package.

    Remember though, third parties only have to dish out a couple figures a year, while hasbro has to churn out 50-60 new figures. While all the third party designers probably work together, hasbro's are probably stretched thin.

    I don't know why I haven't posted here before. I mean I LOVE the FoC toy line(well the Generations line in general, but FoC in particular). I just... never had much to say about it.

    My favorite so far is Shockwave, and I can't wait to get the remold(and call it Fireflight). Oh and the Wreckers... they'll be preordered on day 1. And Dudeicus is my favorite of my entire collection right now(which has been growing since RiD and Armada)

    It seems to me 3rd parties only exist to fill out lines not replace them.

    Examples. Arcee , Huffer , City commander , Springer , Devastator etc.
