    Nowhere near cheap Hasbro plastic fortunately.
    Imagine FP plastics taken down a notch or two.

    Anyone able to figure out why the bonus guns have slots at the top back? I haven't been able to find a place where they'll connect to anything and the directions don't say anything about it.

    Has anyone found a way to incorporate Slash into the build either as a gun or as an attachment?

    Does anybody think it's worth it to have both kits, tfdw & PE? I got the PE set but now I'm not sure I want it, & I have tfdw in my stash. Can anyone make a compelling reason to keep both or should I get rid of one? Any help in making this decision would be greatly appreciated.

    From what I'm seeing overall the company offerings play to different aspects. While the PE parts fit better in Volcy mode; I gather the TDW set makes a better-looking Volcy and the PE gear looks better on the individual Dinos in both modes. I'm getting both company's stuff and doubling-up on Dinobots to have a set in separated-out and combined-up modes and will assort the upgrade kits appropriately.

    If you're having to choose just one kit for one set of Dinos I'd advise to decide upon which Dinobots mode you plan to play/disply them in most of the time: individual dinos, individual bots, or Combo-bot mode and go with the set that plays to that mode.

    After seeing the visual evidence that the TDW kit may cause stress fractures on Grimlock's arm assembly, so I'm going to air on the side of caution and purchase the PE kit for the backplate.

    im going TDW for the hands/feet, chest, then PE for the back and waist. i prefer how PE makes the chest look as opposed to TDW giving him some odd armpit turbines

    Thanks for the input. I'm planning on keeping them in combined mode.

    I bought this set over the weekend. It was a pain to install because i can't get sludge and snarl (mostly sludge) to be the legs and have him stand straight. Also the sludge slot to attach to the dreamwave feet were really loose so he can't strike a balance with it at all. Finally i just gave up and made sludge an arm and used slug as the leg.

    How are you guys posing with sludge and snarl as the legs? Sludge's head/neck seems to block the combiner port and he won't stand straight.

    Question - Is it worth it to get both? I am getting TCW this week. PC-23 looks like a pretty cool addition.

    For me, definitely needed both sets (and everything else). Had to do everything to make Volcanicus not suck. :lol
