So, after getting a knockoff TM2 Megatron not to long ago, I decided I'd take a chance on getting a REAL 3rd Party Transformer. To that end, I picked up a Sonicron on eBay for a modest $20. Now, I know that Sonicron is perhaps not the BEST 3P figure ever, but after doing some research on him, I decided to take a chance. And honestly? I don't regret the decision at all, I really like Sonicron. He doesn't really fill the "Classics Soundwave" void I was hoping he'd fill, but I like him even on his own terms. First off, I should say that I went into Sonicron with adjusted expectations. I was well aware of his really, really poor QC issues. So I approached him as more of a project, rather than just a figure. I knew I'd have to do ALOT of joint thickening, trimming, and screw-tightening. And I did. And now that he's no longer a floppy mess? I think he's great, there's alot of really cool things I like about him. The missile rack, the buttons on his crotch, his rounded head, and especially his alt-mode. He was totally worth the 20 bones I threw at him. So, what was your first 3rd Party figure? And for bonus points, what 3rd Party figure did you do the most customization/fixing to?
