    Well, personally I have no Gripe with FT. They always diliver what they promise at a just price. Though that said, GigaPower proved that it can be done better and with less cost. If someone can make KOs of their products with less cost (and not pennies, actual savings) then perhaps I might get a Skyfire myself.

    What happened to that company that was supposed to KO them?

    I want scaled down Dinos. Or someone can upscale the TW guys and remove the combining feature.

    I always thought that FTs dinos were too big. Then I saw Slag by both companies side by side and....Well if I didnt have an entire cast that keeps my budget tight, Id go Giga. They are massive yes, but they feel as they should next to the rest of the Mp line, so no downscale for me.

    I dont want my dinos to combine either (makes 0 sense from a lore perspective and the combination process) and therefore I have no experience regarding TWs.

    Why oh why isn't there a butt flap kit after all this time. It takes a whole KO to fix it, really.

    You will learn to love the butt flap, The butt flap is love, the butt flap is life.

    Every Takara figure from here on will have a butt flap and you will love it.

    So how do you feel about the butt flap?

    I'm not getting rid of my MP Grimlock. I'm not also putting boots on him, or buying $150 figures that tower over him.

    There's a void that can be filled there.

    I used to agree but as I've added to my collection, my mp08 is just too small next to the other bots. I'm still not willing to buy the $200 ft dinos and gp seems to go for almost as much so that's a no go for me too. If the dinos ever got KO'd for say $120 or so each, I'd snap them up. For now I mostly just put mp08 with Devastator where it's ok if he looks small by comparison and keep him away from any other bots bigger than a carbot. I've been tempted by perfect fusion slag but I'd only get him if they were doing all the others. Otherwise, I just won't have any other Dinobots.

    You know.....

    This pretty much ^ Plus Grinder looks all kinds of Awesome that Takaras doesnt. At this point I believe its what you are commited to. I believe Grimlock (the official) is going down the trash can, when TT decides to copy....Erhm I mean engineer the dinobots from scratch, hence he will be a museum piece. As to FT Vs Giga, for someone like me who has none right now I think Giga is the best choice, someone who started with FT....Ft is the only choice.

    Oh I don't know about that. I still like my mp08. I'm actually pretty tempted to get the os ko to begin a larger scale dino collection rather than using FT's. Unfortunately the osko is silver and the other dinos aren't so they wouldn't match.

    Don't get me wrong: I appreciate FT's grimlock. He's got that Fanstoys heft which, while it's not that big a deal to me, is kind of nice. The closed legs are awesome and his wings are proportionally correct as opposed to mp08's overly large wings. For everything else, though, I prefer mp08. He just looks more like grimlock. Fanstoys made his abdomen too narrow for example. And I like mp08's eye gimmick. I know ft can do red or blue eyes as well but mp08 wins that by having the swappable eyes integrated without needing to add and remove parts. Also you don't have to buy an add on dino head to make mp08 look right in dino mode. Seriously, that's just too much to put up with: $200 for grinder and then you have to pay, what, something like $20 for the correct head because for some reason they chose to make his dino head wrong. And people bought them in droves. It's no wonder ft thought they could charge whatever ridiculously high price they'd originally planned for omega before dx9 undercut them (I forgot how much it was but I remember it was stupidly high).
