    Vs Optimus, 6 dinos, guardian, omega, and perceptor. So 10 vs 7 with repaints or 9 vs 3 without lol not counting magnus or insecticons because they aren't released yet lol. I want me some classic decepticons man!!! Soundwave, shockwave, BRUTICUS!!!! A man can dream lol. I am super tempted by sunstorm and acid rain. But i definitely spent waaaaay to much last month haha.

    So I have the fansproject sludge and slag, plan on getting all the other fansproject dinos. But I dislike their grimlock, so I've got my heart set on Vulcan. Can anyone shed some light on which version (original or metallic) would color match the FP dinos better?

    Honestly I don't think either match well. Regular is too dark and has a kinda swirl too it, silver is too vibrant. That said, having both colours and having owned Severo I would say go for the regular one

    Damn, that shiny one is soooooo good looking though. Yeah, I totally see what you mean, the gray is closer than the silver. Thanks for the insight!

    If you want I can take some comparison pics with both the regular and the metallic one with Fansproject Volar. Besides Grimlock that's the only Fansproject Dino I have. Would that help any?

    Original matches perfectly for me.

    Most likely the only dino I'll get as Neptune is as hard to find for a fair price as the Microblaze upgrade for FOC bruticus (I will not give up on hunting down a bruticus though haha)

    Okay here you go! Personally I think the metallic one works pretty good. To me the reds are closer and the gold matches better with the metallic gold on Vulcan.

    I took some close up shots of the the paint and colors to help you see which one you like better. :)

    Great pictures! Man, Vulcan really does match astetically with volar, but the colors are ever so slightly off. Now I'm leaning to the metallic one for the reds and holds

    Seekers are lame ;)  Also that Dinosaur has an enemy called Omega Supreme. I agree with the OP that the Decepticons are overmatched. I want a Soundwave or Bruticus.
