    That I can agree with.
    Saying Kingdom Rattrap has better detail is a bit...

    Well, Kingdom Rattrap's leg method is pretty smart, but it could've been done better. TE could've sacrificed the legs a bit to get that backpack to be smaller. They could've also leaned into the rat look more. They should've made it longer, something kingdom did fairly well, which results in a flatter shell, and thus a smaller backpack.

    I hope it was nothing un-PC. This is no place for meanness.

    Jij bent zo'n grappige jongen, Scourgatron.
    Ik heb altijd zo veel plezier met het lezen van je spitsvondige opmerkingen.

    Not adhering to PC culture doesn’t inherently make one mean.

    De cultuur die ekik op moine PC zie is meestal eerder absurd dan gemeen.
    Ik weet ni wa gij op uwe PC ziet maar als ge da gemeen vind denk ik da ge daar beter is mee naar uwen huisarts gaat ;) 
    Of anders est tait om uw pillekes terug te pakke.

    Okay, slightly better. I like that Kingdom Rattrap has engraved fur details.

    I don't agree with how you feel about the TE toy versus the Kingdom toy, but I gotta commend you for your honesty here. You have quite a bit of self-awareness that is all too rare in certain segments of this fandom. So it's very appreciated.

    Well thanks. I guess if we’re going to share opinions here, the very least we can do is to understand why we hold them in the first place.

    Sure beats unironically using terms like "Hasblow," in place of actual arguments. I don't care what you wanna shit on. Just, like, can you at least try to justify why you're partial to certain toys or companies, and why you hate their competition in comparison?

    (Not talking about you, obviously. But like.... it's 2020, and parts of this fanbase still talk like the OG Geewunners who shat on Beast Wars back in the 90s.)

    Well, I nabbed Kingdom Ratty yday and I friggin' love the li'l bastard. I can't imagine I'd like TE's $20 moreso esp without any fur detailing. This is one instance where the official figure is hands-down the better buy, imho.

    TE Rattrap is too expensive for what it is, but I still might get it anyway, because (based on Blackarachnia) these fit in perfectly with my MP G1 figures.

    Having Kingdom BA and TE BA in-hand, Kingdom is a better toy but TE is more of a mini-MP in terms of finish, deco, and scale (again, with G1 MP figures). Generally I avoid Legends class figures because they're poor values but it will be hard for me to not pick up Legends class BW figures.
