    I regularly catch myself checking out some threads and enjoying pics of figures I don't own and probably won't even buy because of different reasons. Some of them are:

    Show off your 3P Legends scale figures here!
    MMC Ocular Max PS-04 Azalea (Arcee)
    MMC/Ocular Max Jaguar / Ravage
    Fans Toys FT-44 Thomas (MP Astrotrain)
    Badcube OTS-14 Warrior Steamroll (Sideswipe)
    MMC Ocular Max Saltus (MP Springer)

    Which threads do you follow without having the figures in hand?

    All the Newage threads, they get better and better with each release, that Galvatron is beautiful!

    My favorite company I don't own any figures from.

    I used to enjoy the Giga dino threads until I...how should I say.....was stripped off some privileges. How on earth any one could consider those hideous contraptions as masterpiece was good comedy. It often brought a tear to my eye laughing at the absurdity of those figures....ahhh the good ol' days.

    Dr Egg. thread. It's very funny seeing how people reacts to the $175/egg price. (I'm part of it.)

    All Gigapower threads
    Fantoys Dinobots threads
    Fantoys Skyfire and their aerialbots thread.
    All Badcube threads.


    I am really enjoying the pics that people share because probably I'll never able to buy these products they are all too expensive for me. And I like looking badcube threads I feel happy seing how people still loves and enjoys my favorite 3. parth company. :(

    Pretty much everything I visit if they aren't ones I don't already own, they're ones I wish to someday.

    But you know, da money, everyone needs more of da money

    The Legends threads, but I am starting to buy a few of them, mainly from NA and some of IF.

    This. I have a handful of IF figures but dont want to go down the rabbit hole and collect a new size class no matter how cool all of them look.

    Any thread where people aren’t blindly supporting the company and refusing to see flaws or want improvement. So usually anywhere but an FT thread.

    Thats a slippery slope you're traversing right there!

    I've limited myself to select IF fairly well, but do enjoy reading the other legends threads as well.

    So that's why you disappeared? I allways assumed given all the constant praise you gave the Fanstoys rep followed by drooling emojis and begging for release dates you brown nose'd too hard, got stuck and couldn't reach the keyboard anymore. Live and learn ay :D :D :D :D

    Neither of you looks Better than the other. Brand loyalty is bad for everyone, especially those wanting good figures.

    I love following the Iron Factory and New Age figures threads, they sometimes make me wish I just collected legends and Titan-sized figures.
    I also follow Fans Toys threads because they are A. beautiful B. there's always some sort of terrible QC issues. It makes for an interesting mix of comments.
    Oh, and any MMC figure out there, I've definitely kept up with the thread even if I don't own it...yet.

    Same, though I couldnt resist and I now Own four of them...Their Megs did it for me....you go and buy one 'deskbot' and blam, youre hooked....

    I also enjoy pretty much everything MMC/Occularmax and Fanshobby (though I own only one of their figures respectively).

    I used to visit the official mp threads as well, but after the new Starscreαm debacle, idiocy on their part reached critical levels. I have a high lvl tolerance for idiots, but idiocy combined with toxicity is too much. Only the news threads from now on.
