    If you do, this is not for you,its for those who do not care for 3rd party toys. I personally think some of the stuff looks cool, but I just don't want any of it in my collection. Anybody else not like or want it?

    I prefer to only have things licensed by Hasbro and/or Takara. The unofficial stuff is sometimes pretty darn cool, but with the amount of amazing official merchandise out there, it's easy for me to skip the rather costly fan made stuff, especially since it's usually glorified accessories.

    It has nothing to do with cost . I can buy whatever I want. I guess the people on here who can't afford $80 for some "upgrade chunks of plastic" are funny to you right!

    I like them....I'm ordering the xfire set...but other than that, I can't order some of it becuz A. Too expensive B. If something wrong, I can't just go to the store and return it. C. I don't have some of the figs for the add-ons. D. There is a limited amount of products. E. You don't really know what you are getting (I.e. when they made that arcee, lotta people were pissed @ how small it was)....

    I hate the prices as well. The stuff looks great but I just can't get over the sticker shock.

    I guess it depends on the piece and the price. DIA Commander? Not until there's a Diaclone colored CHUG Prime. That set that had the Autoscout? Not since there was a trailer that came with all the decent accessories. We're spoiled enough now to be picky, so I think I will. Venska (Sp? been a long day) has about the best 3rd party accessories so far, and I'm hoping his other projects (Ravage missiles?) see the light of day soon.

    So why don't you like them? It really does no good to say "I don't like them.". As someone else asked, do you have any? Do you object to non-Hasbro product? Do you dislike the prices?
    Personally, I like them. I don't like the high prices myself, but the only one I've skipped because of price is Defender.

    If I feel like they add something -significant- to my collection, then I like them. For instance, the Bruticus set does, but the Rodimus Prime or the Autoscout don't. In fact, the Bruticus one is the only one I've bought so far. I kinda regret missing out on the City Commander. But all the rest, I consider a waste of money.

    I can afford them, but I don't like them because the cost isn't worth what I'm getting.

    I like a lot of them, but the prices are what keeps me from getting them. I understand why they are high though.

    I KNOW, I KNOW!!

    Probably a "hardcore" tf fan, who can't stand transforming figures that do not sport a Hasbro or Takara/Tomy logo.

    I love 3rd party stuff. They cater to the small group of fans that like the extras. Classics ultra mag was Just another white repaint before fansproject. Tfc's led guns are awesome, prime never looked better. Warbot is the best springer. Universe soundblaster sucked until venksta fixed it. Kidbash roadbuster speaks for itself. Some of us don't mind spending the money for something that is worth it.

    it is a matter of opinion.
