    You'll have to excuse me, but I never meant to discredit Takara's excellent work on the Masterpiece line. Most of the figures they put out in it have absolutely superb sculpts, and incredible articulation as well. Nevertheless, I still cannot bring myself to pay upwards of $300 for one figure, regardless of the quality and accessories. Of course this is all just personal preference, since plenty of people out there would gladly shell out the cash to buy the official Takara product; it's all about perspective and personal taste. Extremely condescending attitude aside, you make a very valid point, but I would still recommend being respectful of the buying habits and opinions of the other Transformers fans out there that maybe don't have as much spending cash.

    Thats an interesting cover. It would be cool if Runamuck and Runabout spray painted that.

    So what is the consensus on the BTTF crossover? Any good? And thoughts on the My little pony crossover?

    I quit the IDW mainline, because it took TF too seriously.

    I'm really loving the art in that BTTF excerpt. And the dialogue's not too shabby either.

    Has anyone heard any rumours about a Shattered Glass series? I only ask as the new upcoming 'Capsule Collection' that's due to be revealed at Pulse Con in conjunction with IDW is alleged to be an SG one, yet we haven't actually had an SG comic from them yet...

    Reporting back in almost a month later to say I just got my copy, and honestly it's pretty good! Obviously the plastic quality feels cheapish, but when the figure cost only a third of the authentic one I can't really fuss over it too much. I was correct in my assuming that the light up features would not work out of the package, although for some reason only the light up effect for the blast piece works just fine. Joints feel very nice and sturdy, as do pretty much all the points of articulation on the piece, and a majority of the paint apps are solid. Definitely recommend it if you're like me and are just aching to get a fantastic looking Beast Wars Megatron on the shelf.

    Oh WOW! Thanks man! I really appreciate it.

    So the only weak link would be the quality of the plastics? I heard they were pretty close, if not better than Takara even.

    So that's a no on that one?
