    I actually really do like the Beast Hunters one since its alot more show accurate then people think it to be. It just needs a major paint overhaul to make it even better.

    I love it. Though the fake chest is kind of a turn off.

    Nope. I am a huge fan of the Smokescreen toy. I paid import proves for the white Knockout version of him so buy the real version at retail was a treat.

    Plus I really enjoy him on the show.

    I like my BH smokescreen except for his lame back and super fiddle annoying shoulders during transformation. Plan to paint some stuff on him eventually, and I'll like him even more.

    I like it a lot, my only gripe: decos/paint apps, why does the Cyberverse version have more accurate door tampos?

    Anyway, I hope the Takara version would have more show accurate paint apps.

    Nope, the one I have is the Toys R Us Japan exclusive, it has the same color as the Pure Energon B2.

    The Abutobot/Decepticon Energon sets are Vol. 4 of the Gashapon series, they have a different shade of blue and have some paint apps. The Pure Energon OP has none and only has the Autobot sticker you place under the crystal.

    I finally found a Shockwave today. I was really excited about it.

    But once I got him home and opened him up I was kind of disappointed. I knew his tank mode was going to be lame, but man, it is really lame. And is anyone else's Shockwave really floppy and loose-jointed?

    Dude, nice work! :thumb 

    Yeah, the only issue is the handle is a little smaller than it needs to be for the port but, after painting and several layers of future it fits a lot better. That said, his SS stays with my FE, the WU goes with CHUG Optimus.

    Yeah, he is kind of floppy, some Future will help that out though.

    I don't know if this belongs in this thread... I can't find a bootleg thread that easily. But since this find has something to do with TF:p  RID, then I decided to put it here. Feel free to put this in the appropriate thread.

    I put this guy alongside FE Optimus Prime, for scale. And personally, I like the way he scales with the deluxes. He's a bootleg of Arms Micron Optimus Prime:

    I think that may be a fairly accurate size. It looks kinda neat.

    And for future reference, the bootleg thread has been moved to the 3rd Party section. Assuming this thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...ion/191817-knock-off-transformers-thread.html is what you meant of course.

    There! Thanks so much. Now that I am at peace that my post is in the right thread, I'll try to get another one, to be remade as Nemesis Prime (the one made by MECH).

    No, mine is pretty nice and tight.

    And yeah alt mode is so lame I only bothered to half transform him to it and then stopped caring lol. But his bot mode is one of the coolest of any Hasbro figures I have.
