I generally like FT's stuff and I do think that their Insecticons are unambiguously the best looking set that have been released. BUT. I recently picked up the MMC set and, having it in hand and looking at the FT ones anew, I gotta say - I don't have to have them anymore. They look good, but not THAT much better. I paid $100 for all three MMC figures. $100 wouldn't have paid for even one FT Insecticon when they were issued, forget about now. Hopefully people will eventually have another shot at these. But for me, at some point, do I have to have the most absolute epic version of every character? No. Obviously, for someone who has a real passion about the Insecticons, the situation is a bit different. But letting the perfect be the enemy of the good is a recurring theme in fandom.
