    Mmm, I dunno, I think I only had Lazerbeak as a kid but I feel like the MP version was a big improvement. The thruster whatsits are fully integrated into the cassette instead of annoying partsforming bits that always fall off... also nicer wings and headsculpt, even has the flip up plate in the head if you can ever get it out of there with say, a pin :p 

    Ravage... I think his cannons used to also be partsforming? And he was practically 2-d.

    Can't really comment on Rumble and Frenzy.

    Not saying they didn't improve on the originals at all, just not as much as, say, MP Prowl did over the original toy. It is nice that the weapons integrate in the MP's, but they still fall more on the "toy" rather than "collectible" end of the scale. YMMV of course. G1 Ravage's missiles were separate pieces.

    BTW I enjoyed your post in the MMC Backdraft page and piggy-backed on it today; just got my Backdraft this afternoon.

    (Not my video, obviously)

    Really loving how these guys look, though Slugfest seems a bit finicky.

    While not perfect these are a vast improvement over the KFC ones I really wished that Durden's spikes stayed up without aid.

    B&B Durden & Barney review. There's a gag in there somewhere, it was quite embarrassing to organize. PRAISE ME! *coughs

    So as someone who has both, would you say these can easily replace KFC’s offering? Are they more stable and have tighter joints over KFCs?

    about my set I believe they easily replace KFC, There Slugfest visually way better than KFC’s offering. Only slight issue with mine is the tolerance of the sliding dorsal spikes was a little loose so had to thicken it with future floor polish.

    RH’s Overkill is more stable, aesthetically it is more cartoonish but doesn’t bother me in the slightest. If you look at the pic I posted they dwarf KFC’s.

    More than anything these don’t feel fragile like KFC’s offerings. Construction and aesthetics are what sold me on these guys, I couldn’t even tell you where my KFC’s are now and honestly I don’t care. I hope that RH puts out more cassettes in the near future.

    Hope this helps.

    I just wish they would’ve done something to make Overkill’s bottom jaw blue. I have both the KFC sets and this set. They are much better than the KFC ones but that lower jaw being white is killing me

    Well, not the optimal solution, but it should be too hard to paint.

    Loving these guys! I am going to paint Overkills lower jaw dark blue though. Fantastic figures!
