    The parts that I like.
    Did you not notice that I began that sentence with "I prefer"?

    I was clearly talking about my own tastes, because believe it or not, preferring one toy over another is 1000% a subjective thing.

    There is no objective truth here, and there never will be. I like something, you don't. You don't like something, I do. This is the nature of our hobby.

    If you wanna block me for expressing a subjective opinion, please go ahead, because you're clearly an unbelievable weenie.

    Nowhere in my post says that you're wrong, I'm just wondering on which part of TR Gnaw is better than SS86 version, no need to be so defensive.

    You can still be subjective AND voicing your opinion, you know. Like say, I prefer T30 Rhinox because he doesn't have Faux lower jaw.

    Of course you can refrain from voicing your opinion and reason, but when you make a statement without any explanation, people will ask out of confusion or interest. Heck, you might found someone who shares your interest!

    Fair enough. It’s not as if the name is printed on the figure. You could call him ‘Susan’ if you wanted.

    It’s even a name that fits the Dinobot convention of starting with an ‘s’. :p :p :p

    This would be a credible backstory for explaining his rage and attitude.

    The more I see of Wreck-Gar, the less I like him. The partsforming wheels are a total dealbreaker and the axe is so stunted it looks like pinwheel. Compare this to how beautifully well-integrated everything was on RTS Wreck-Gar's ingenious asymmetric transformation. Even the axe forms the tailpipe instead of just pegging onto the back. Hell, I wish he did look like that in the cartoon. I'm not a slave to G1 accuracy, sometimes a better design makes for a better toy. I'll stick with what I've got, thanks.

    To me the highlight is Gnaw. I do appreciate the movie look, but I've never had any qualms with TR Gnaw and he scales well with current figures. Maybe if I can get SS86 Gnaw on discount....

    judging by the Allicon I would say that’s unlikely. He’s a troop builder. Tons of people will be looking for multiples.

    I like the RTS Junkions a lot too, but I'm still getting the new ones. That's the nice thing about Junkions, they don't all look the same.

    Sharkticons on the other hand...Will I ever be able to get 3. I've got 1 Allicon and 1 Quintesson(so far), so it ain't looking good. The figure looks good but my odds of successfully troop building them do not.

    I probably will eventually. I try to save the preorders for the figures I can't live without. Gives me something to look for when I actually go to the store.

    Fair. These days with distribution the way it is I typically just preorder everything I think I might want, there's not much to hunt when stores barely stock shelves :p

    So much this. The thrill of the hunt died a long time ago for me. Sure, sometimes you have to like the Walmart Netflix figures but distribution was getting worse even before last year's problems. If I even remotely thing I want something I will preoder through Amazon, Pulse, and BBTS to cover all bases. Brick and mortar just isn't the same as it was 10 years ago. RTS and Prime first edition was when it started to get bad and it has only gotten worse.

    Chosen Prime and Pulse for me, Amazon has canceled 1 too many of my preorders, though oddly they've all been mainline stuff
