    IMO Fans Hobby stuff are MP in scale only. Outside of that they seem more CHUG-ish.

    I have the G2 Prime and there is nothing chugish about it. It is exactly what a Masterpiece G2 Prime would look like. That one at least.

    They others do not appeal to me at all and I would agree about those being "MP", but that mold for Scourge and Laser Prime works really well IMO

    If it works for you, that's great. Just not my cup of tea.......challenge or no challenge.

    I would say even if they aren't ideal for some it is better to list every "possible" option and let people decide for themselves whether they will work or not. What's right for me isn't necessarily right for anyone else, and what is right for any of you isn't necessarily right for me. There are some limits (like Legends scale figure wouldn't work), but including more figures is better than including fewer.

    Yeah, I like him more than an X-Transbots' version.

    I would like to see official minibots, but outside of getting bumblebee over and over again it's probably not going to happen. Best bet is Fans Toys giving us all minibots.

    i had Arkose and he is a pretty well made, well articulated robot. hoping for the same or more from FT.
    same here. still not sure why they won't do movie bots since a lot of them are unlicensed.
