    I'm still scratching my head at how Gravestone doesn't even utilize his trailer in his transformation but yet is grossly out of scale with insane amounts of kibble on his back. What a trainwreck of a figure!?

    :rolleyes2

    It's a perfect example of the backpack isn't a problem in and of itself, it is a question of what is accomplished in exchange for having such a backpack. Gravestone and Roadking have comparable backpacks, but what we get out of the backpack is so different.

    Well, the truck that Gravestone turns into is significantly larger than Roadking's cab. So there's alot of bulk there. I still prefer Gravestone overall for looks. Roadking is impressive enough for me to order him though.

    Gravestone has the best legs and especially the feet, Roadking upper body and arms, and Gravestone again takes the headsculpt.

    I saw the review for D
    I think Gravestone has the worst head sculpt. His forehead looks squashed.

    Capone's forearms look a bit long.

    It really is. Fanstoys is just clearly the best of the three, and that is not knocking the other two as they do look good, but it's just not even close, and add in that the limb bots are seeker sized like they were in the cartoon and Fanstoys is just clearly head and shoulders above the others on these combiners.

    That just depends on what you are looking for I suppose. Gravestone does look really good, but as it's clearly inferior to Roadking.

    Gravestone's headsculpt is not like any of these.

    I’m a fairly new Masterpiece level collector...I don’t have very many. As a matter of fact, growing up we didn’t have very many Transformers due to the cost.

    However, I did have the entire Stunticon team as a kid....and fortunately...I still have them to this day. Out of all my toys, it’s all I have from when I was a kid....so this team is really special to me.

    When Transformission announced their Havoc....I patiently waited and got the entire team....it was off from G1 but I thought I was content....then X-Transbots announced their stunticons...so I started investing in that team, and sold off the Transformmission set as I really wanted a G1 accurate set.

    But then, holy crap...Fanstoys. I’ve heard of Fanstoys....but never owned their work. When I saw Fanstoys stunicon set, I was sold. I tried to talk myself into going with XTransbots still especially since they were A. Cheap...and B...coming out quickly...but at the end of the day I sold off my Breakdown and wildrider and I’m waiting out this set.

    RoadKing is everything I’ve wanted in a MotorMaster.. he’s my first Fanstoys product...and I’m really impressed (especially with Takara products literally falling apart now)

    My biggest problem was that I could only have him in either alt or robot...so I’m stoked I can display both now that I’ve decided to double up. I guess now that I’m going down this path I’ll probably pick up an extra spoiler when he’s reissued too.

    Call me a Fanboy I guess, I’m sold. :)

    I commiserate, but down this path, only a barren wallet awaits you!

    I'm a compulsive double dipper, myself. I have sort of established boundaries with it, though...only allowed on my top 5 favorites.

    Haha, it’ll probably be with just this particular set...but man, not gonna lie...after getting RoadKing I’ve been eyeballing their other releases. The quality, design, and esthetic is just amazing.

    Amazing scenes and also encourage to buy a second Roadking for truck mode next to bot. Roadking has gently pushed :D  Optimus out of his way and Autobot leader can just get even on tiny G1 toy!

    Two things I notice - those other stunticons really don’t have the same level of polish or build at all - and you have a very large batmobile.

    The question is, can Roadking drive the bat mobile?

    Only Megatron’s allowed to drive Batmobiles when he’s chasing down creepy versions of Cliffjumper!
