    I just have to say these are 2 of the finest 1st or 3rd party figures I have ever purchased, hands down.

    I can't wait to see what these guys put out next!

    Really they should have a few comparison pics with them and the FOC repaints just to demonstrate how superior they are to the "official" updated versions by Hasbro.

    I know of the original set and the convention repaint set..what is the 3rd?

    These guys are right there for my favorite purchase of 2013 along with Hexatron & MP Soundwave.

    These are some of my favourite third party figures. Such fun to mess about with and pose, and instinctive transformations too.

    the Clones Shawk and Pawe i think are the official names.

    unpainted essentially the decepticon clone updates (two on the right)

    Search Results - TFW2005

    the alt modes remained topspin/twintwist so I was disappointed at first thinking they were remolds, but those will just stay as bots as classics stand ins for now

    I passed on the FoC versions because I bought these, truth be told. The FoC ones just didn't do it for me. If I'd had both, I'd glady have thrown in some comparison shots.

    I'm with Sol, the FoC Jumpstarters are just reprints/retools. At least these guys look right.

    Gonna put the red autobot symbols on them with white background from reprolabels, is the smallest ones the best fit or is the second smallest symbols the best fit on these guys chests?

    As best as I can recall I think I used the second smallest on mine and they fit really well.
