CC was my first 3rd party buy and remains one of my favorite toys. Bruticus is also pretty awesome, although i wish they had done something with B's thighs. I do need a springer but I really dont know if Defender is the best we'll get. its a particularly shitty dilemma right now because he's back in stock :/ but FP isnt perfect and i dont want everything they make. the concept of the heartmaster still baffles me to this day, its not based on anything, which is like 90% of what this whole 3rd party thing is about: giving us what we never got before and nailing the G1 likeness as much as possible.
