    Hey guys

    I haven't posted in awhile i just got FP Armored Battalion set from TFSource and I have not opened it any of the packaging. I'm having second thoughts about the set, i mean the set looks awesome and just watched a Peaugh review on them and i really like these, but I am finding myself steering away from Transformers, it's not that i dont like them, but i don't like the Transformers:p rime, beast hunters and the Fall of Cybertron line up. If hasbro would bring back the Generations line, i wouldn't even be posting this topic. I'm reaching out to collectors who already opened this set and please advise me that this limited set is a keeper! I mean I love first set of the Insecticons, but i feel these top the cake.

    Thanks to everyone

    If these were official they would be in Generations, the line you do like. So you should probably keep them.

    I think you answered your own question.

    Look at it this way, next year or the year after when all the sudden the classics line up makes a comeback with 7 or more newly released molds, you will be upset at yourself for letting these go.

    So what will you do? Try to hunt them down, only to realize, "WTF, these are $500! Argh, WTF?!?!"

    Don't believe me, please look up Shadow Scythe.

    keep them, they add to your generations line, they aren't the figures you don't like...and not being defective, would tfsource take them back?

    AMAZING figures..... I am in the same boat as you and am not into the TF Prime figures or the FOC stuff...... 3P has been definitely filling in my Generations/United stuff. I LOVE my set!

    Besides getting the MP stuff..... If no new Generations G1 style stuff comes out, i'll be strictly 3P in that regard...
