    I found the thread for that figure. It's smaller than MP Ratchet.

    Can't do it. No matter how interested I might be in acquiring a particular G1 update, for instance, that FT Springer. Can't do third party. That's just me. However, it looks like there's a lot here for those who are interested to get excited about.

    I never understood why companies with, evidently, such talent in designing transforming figures wouldn't just create their own authentic line of characters and toys not associated with Transformers alongside its own original fiction. I would be more interested in that, than I ever will be in unofficial, unlicensed, "Transformers". A TF convention sans any authentic Transformers makes little sense to me.

    Just my opinion. I know there are a lot of third party fans, so don't lose your minds.

    Built in fan/ customer base. Sure, they could design Gangrenous, Tyrannical Brute of Section 42, Scourge of the Corthions. But who is she/ he/ it? Tell me a new version of Galvatron is coming out that makes the FT version look like a Titans Returns recolor and I know exactly who that is and why I would want him.

    And, for me at least, the name of the company making the figure doesn't bother me. I own a mix of "MP" figures from across most of the companies. I have a lot of "officials" but it's very often that a 3rd party company makes something just as good or better. For instance, the Fans Toys or Gigapower Dinobots. Not trying to change your mind, if your happy with your collection then fantastic! Just my 2 energon chips ;-)

    Thanks! As soon as Fans Toys, Badcube or any of the other companies approach me with an offer I'll give you an estimated street date.

    Now I just need to figure out what a Corthion is :)

    1. Terminus giganticus is huge. Not just the tall. But thicc
    2. Can't decide on a cosmos. Had a lot of fun running back and forth eyeing the oc max against the others. They all have something uniquely off to it
    3. That Mp overlord on grey primer is insane.
    4. Mmc pet looks great. Didn't realize how big he is. This pic doesn't show how long he is
