    Just ordered my first 3rd party transformer and I'm very excited lol. I've decided to only stick to mp scale combiners just incase they are never made by takara so have decided warbotron are my choice (even tho I love maketoys giant and quantron) so heavy noisy will be on it's way to me tomorrow. Then started to preorder the rest now so I don't miss out and even starting on their computron aswell my bank balance is taking a hit but so worth it

    in before anyone starts complaining that Warbotron1 isn't MP scale.

    i think you picked a great project to start with. bot modes, alt modes, combined mode, this might be the best combiner yet. ;)

    Welcome to the crack house. It's very hard to feed the 3P addiction and pay the bills. FP Sludge or pay the electric bill, decisions decisions. :)

    Welcome to your financial DOOM.

    By the way, I would have loved to get heavy noise, he seems so awesome.

    can i ask you to clarify if you can?
    are you hinting that something else is coming out as far as a bruticus, or an MP? or suggesting that perhaps Warbo is disappointing? I dont care either way, just curious.

    That's true I did want the causality insecticons but I only liked the purple and can't find then now. I'm trying to stick to things I don't think takara will do but u guys are right scoria was very hard for me not to cave but I managed not to. Hopefully I will keep it up

    I started with the Quakewave figure...he was amazing..then got Huff and he was pretty good. But these Warbotron figures have def been the most fun to transform and display. i'm in for whatever figs they do next

    My first 3rd party item was the War Axe for WFC Optimus....then my first 3rd party figure was Fansproject Not Shrapnel. All was good after that and I really enjoyed those FP-not insecticons.

    It's odd, for years and years I was wanting a Galvatron that LOOKED like the one from the G1 motion picture, and my favorite combiner has always been Bruticus(I loved the look of his face in the G1 series)

    Low and behold, I latch on to Unique Toys Mania King in vintage colors, and after doing some web research I discover Warbotron is doing a Bruticus(both of which has gotten pretty good reviews)

    For years I've been missing out on Transformers, and as soon as I discover the 3rd party realm the figures I've always wanted are being released.

    I've paid for Heavy Noisy from TFS, but I'm waiting on either Air Burst or Mania King to be stocked for free delivery, and I also pre-ordered Sly Strike.

    They have some really amazing looking 3rd party stuff out there...

    My first third party purchase was fansproject colossus upgrade for united bruticus... Combiners are the worst way to start third party because you get a ton of awesome and they always leave you wanting more ... Say goodbye to your spare cash
