So just a week ago, after nearly three decades of collecting Hasbro's toys almost exclusively (I say almost because I have a few Takara imports), I decided to finally dip my toes into the world of third-party toys! One trip to TF Source, and a week's wait, I just received MakeToys' Battle Sentinel. Just getting this out of the way: holy crap you guys, this thing is awesome! With that said, I'd like to continue with collecting 3P figures, but I have some questions for anyone willing to take the time to read this. 1. What are some of the best 3P brands (apparently MakeToys is great, think I got lucky there just blindly picking one of the cheaper toys), and what should I avoid? 2. What are some concerns I should be worried about? I admit, there were a couple bits I was paranoid about breaking on Battle Sentinel ( like attaching the tanker to his back), and I understand most, if not all 3P toys don't follow toy safety standards. 3. Grimlock is my favorite character, what is the consensus for best 3P Grimlock? I was looking at Fans Project's (think I spelled it right) Severo and that looks amazing. I intend to read more reviews and figure out what are some must-haves or just look cool, but any help would be appreciated, please and thank you!
