    I shouldn't have bought the tfc ex-002 battle rollar. It looked so good in the pictures but just lacks the G1 feel.

    The Unicron stand. I forget who made it (Unicron.com?) but, damn, that thing was a piece of crap; I wouldn't have trusted it to hold up a Voyager, let alone something as heavy as Unicron, even with the shortest and thickest stand peg. Would have been a lot better if they'd made it a tripod...which wouldn't have been too difficult, seeing as they provided 2 extra stand pegs anyway.

    Other than that, I've been very happy with the third party TF items I've purchased.

    None yet, thankfully (considering the price tag on some).

    In hindsight yeah Battle Rollar isn't a good fit with G1 stuff (Masterpiece or Classics); it is a good fit for the Movie toys though.

    BTS OP and Nemesis Trailers. The items were really underwhelming. Good thing I had sold them off since.

    I randomly got the God Sword for Christmas. Though I don't know how I could regret anything I couldn't recommend it and would not buy it if I had to with the QC issues I had with mine.

    I bought the black and blue iGear autoscouts and it turns out that the toys are exactly the same. Only the box is different. Oh well, at least I have 2 Kremzeeks.
    Mastercollectibles Classic Science Engineer Conversion Kit (aka WJ upgrade Kit) is not worth it either.

    There are PLENTY of KOs that I bought that I wished later that I hadn't. KOs are technically 3rd party, right?

    I have bought a few add on sets. The least favorite is the Classics weapons pack. Aside from the Soundwave cassette from the crystal episode (I forget its' name) the rest was dissapointing. My biggest dissapointment with the set was the randomly coloured weapons. If they stuck with all silver missile launchers I would not me making this comment.

    The rest I am very happy with and I look forward to the ARK!!!!

    Thanx

    No regrets here. Only 3rd party TF item I have is the City Commander set for my Classics Ultra Magnus, and I absolutely love it.

    Well, I guess I should also mention that everything I bought from FansProjects is fantastic. The Unicron.com Animated addon is great too. The only problem I ever had with a fan made kit is this damn god sword.

    The TFC Gear of War set did not come with randomly colored weapons. All sets came with three launchers: one silver, one red, one black. This was disclosed prior to release and your retailer should have made that clear.

    The launchers are designed to go with Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Red Alert, Mirage, Dragstrip, and Inferno (his ladder can hold 2). Oh, and any of the clear versions of Mirage. The different colors go quite a ways to fitting in with different figures and setting them apart.

    I've only bought Quintessons, City Commander, and the Superion Appendage upgrade. I'm sitting pretty happy with my 3rd party stuff.

    I never said I was misinformed, I just wasn't well informed. The pics showed silver guns and when I recieved the package I saw the different colours. I looked at the sale listings and they did mention the colours.

    Just my opinion, I am not a fan of the colours. BUT I STRESS I WAS NOT MISINFORMED!!!

    Thanx
