    Was hoping it’d be something a little more interesting.

    Have the original. It\'s ok. Cutthroat is kinda awful IMO. Recolor won\'t fix the issues. Will wait and see what they have to show.

    I gotta say, as much as I’m salty and angry that Takara is doing these after I and probably everyone else already bought the PotP versions, I’m also really glad, as I personally hate Hasbro’s “toy-based or nothing” approach to figures, and after getting all the G1 combiners but Abominus in Unite Warriors, it was a big let down for me personally. So I’ll have to figure out how to sell the PotP ones I have, but I’m 100% getting this.

    And I also hope Orthia might be their next release as I hate all the stickers on Elita-1, and the feet parts that came with Elita don’t fit snugly into any of the fembot limbs, so that mold could use retooling anyway. It would especially be rad if we got extensive retools on the limb bots to give them more individuality, but I know that’s probably hoping too much.

    Is that really a thing, though? Hasn’t WFC been almost obsessively cartoon-based?

    Yeah, you've got a point there, nowadays, they are mostly show accuracy focused, and i guess because of that, people would consider that "obsolete" since they now have a more show accurate option now.

    I kinda worry that the days toy accuracy may be numbered.

    In the case of Abominus though, I find the toy colours to be far superior. If only because he's not yet another white/silver-faced 'bot. White helmet/magenta face all day, any day, thank you very much.

    Other than that one discrepancy, I don't remember the Terrorcons being particularly different between the two mediums. Then again, I don't remember the Terrorcons doing much at all...

    Interested. Terrorcons are some of my favs of the Decepticons. Hopefully they give them matching fist and maybe fix some of the tolerances with the toys and I’m in. Can’t wait
