    So a few things.
    One, I find it wierd that the list of possible 3rd party transformer toys are in the regular toy section, and not the 3rd party, and that it's really outdated.

    Two,
    I finally got my first 3rd party. I'm in love. It's just a tiny one, but the scale is what I love.

    So Im wondering if anyone knows of bots that would be in scale to my current collection, most being siege but no bigger that generations Springer.
    Here is the ones I think have no good official releases, imo.
    Perceptor
    Blaster
    Kup (but around same size as generations)
    Highbrow

    Perceptor - Planet X Asclepius
    Blaster - Mega Steel Buster
    Kup - Toyworld Crank

    I don't think there are any 3P Highbrows at all yet... except Legends.

    Oh, and what was your first figure?

    Thanks!


    My first is MST B16 STRONGMAN aka Huffer. The way he transforms his legs is genius!

    That's a legends figure, so if you're trying to scale with him, you might want to look into those companies that specialise in that scale a bit more. Unfortunately I know next to bugger all about legends... sorry.

    I don't want the rest to scale to him, I wanted him to scale to the same as the Legends class hasbro version. Which he does!

    I choose my prices carefully, they won't get nothing. Not even my son.

    Np. Best option is make a list of characters you want figures of then go to tfsource and search their 3rd party section since they still show ones that are long out of stock. Then set a price range and set search parameters on ebay to notify you when someone lists those. Or post a list in the wanted section which you could prob find a little cheaper than ebay. Its what i did. Ive never been happy with dinobots scale.
    Soundmixer is just a tad shorter than siege/er Optimus. Browning is a big deluxe class size. About 5 6inches. Never got him but i got the repaint of their chromedome which is same scale.
    Companies i recommend to scale with siege and generations line: maketoys, mastermind creation, tfc toys, unique toys (they have a great galvatron), fansproject.
