what 3rd party TF toys did you buy & what were the reasons for buying them? Okay I'll start. Thus far I have only bought 5 3rd party TF toys. (1) Rifle extensions kit for MP Megatron. WHY? Because MP Megatron feels naked without the rifle gun extensions. because in the cartoon,megatron transforms into a gun with rifle extensions on him. Anyways I kinda feel for the toy,that taking away MP Megatron's rifle extensions is like taking away MP Convoy's trailer. the 1984 faction leaders feel in-complete without there accessories. (2) repro long smoke stacks for Hasbro's 20th/25th optimus prime. I bought about 6 sets from 2 different guys. the style is different from the 2 guys. WHY? because I hate it when hasbro files stuff down for USA safety laws. anyways the MP Prime toy looks awful with cut down smoke stacks in both modes. the shorter smoke stacks make the figure look more fat & square. while the longer smoke stacks make the toy seem less fat & less square. (3) MP Starscream king's crown+cape+shoulder pads. WHY? as a homage to the 1986 TF movie scene when starscream put on all that stuff when he became leader. also the MP Starscream & the classics 1.0 starscream are the best representations of the 1986 starscream character. for such a awesome figure,it needed all the extra accessories. to make it more special. (4) Bruticus swindle+blastoff+combiner accessories. WHY? Because hasbro/takara will never make correct sizes & designs when they do all those updated homages for swindle & blastoff. I got both of them because they are the best swindle & blastoff updated homages molds to date. that have the combiner feature. (5) Trailer/armor for classics 1.0 Ultra magnus. WHY? Because thus far hasbro/takara hasn't created a decent updated homage 1986 ultra magnus toy. that does what the 1986 toy did. which has a robot that combines with the trailer for a super robot mode. WHAT DO I see myself buying in the future from the 3rd party companies that make TF toys? the smaller scale MP megatron. currently on my high priority list. I need a proper scale MP Megatron. this 3rd party igear megatron will be 9 inches tall which is in perfect scale. the current 14 inch scale is way out of scale with other TF toys on display shelves. the 9 inch version should blend in perfectly with leader sized & ultra sized TF toys on display shelves. smaller scale MP Megatron rifle extensions. doubt it'll get made. as it'll be a 3rd party accessory for a 3rd party toy. might not be enough interest by fans to warrant making it. igear ultra magnus trailer for the smaller scale MP Figure. since I have faith leader I might get the powered convoy recolored trailer/armor. maybe i'll just decide against it,who knows,not on top priority list. on maybe list. depending on how much spare cash I have at the time. depending what the trailer/armor looks like.
