    What are your opinions of third party products, good or bad?

    Do you feel as if they are the savior of our franchise, or the reason why toys just "aint' made the same."

    I mostly collect g1 figures. But i really like some of the 3rd party items. If it wasnt for these products i wouldnt buy any newer figures. I have alot of Fp add on kits and headrobots stuff.

    My opinion is that most of the ones I own are pretty darn cool.

    I think I like the upgrade kits for the official stuff more than the full figures, unless it's something Hasbro would never do like Sixshot or non-gimpy combiners.

    I recently bought my first third party product, the fansproject Protector. So far my opinion, they are pretty cool and I plan to buy more (looking at Perfect Effect atm). They aren't meant to replace the official product, they are meant to supplement them and do things that might not be marketable for HasTak.
