What in the world would you do with an oversized Feral Rex? The real deal is super huge to begin with. A bigger one would fill a whole room!

Do you mind if I ask where you bought yours? Were...

I'm almost afraid to ask, but where are these cheap Feralcons coming from? Felisabre impressed me enough that I'd be tempted to grab one of two of the others for the right price even though I'm not...

I totally forgot about those! I'm not sure I'd count them as real "third-party toys" in the sense that we usually discuss them, though. Aren't they just downsized, simplified versions of official...

Not an easy question! The answer probably depends on what you consider a third-party toy, and what you consider accessories for or "derivatives" of official toys.

My memory is a little fuzzy, but...

I...um...what? Seriously? Literally every single one of the details you circled on the third-party toy is either the wrong colour, the wrong shape, in the wrong place or all of the above, and some...

Cutthroat and Rippersnapper are probably my favourite of the set too, but they all suffer from only grabbing a couple details from the originals and then improvising the rest. Which isn't bad in and...

I really need to watch Arrested Development again one day...


I've never understood why anyone would use Cutthroat as a leg to begin with. The original has a tilt joint in his midsection...

I think those are meant for their Rampage, rather than Catilla. IIRC this company has a habit of shipping replacement/upgrade parts for old figures in with new ones when there are QC issues or...

Does anyone here have the FP Quickswitch? I still have so much fun fiddling with my MMC Sixshot that I'm starting to itch for another modern Sixchanger. Feedback seems to be pretty thin on the...

And charge $80 each for them!


Screw Nightbeat, I didn't have his toy as a kid so obviously Scoop is a higher priority.

Look on the bright side, though -- as least his best toy isn't an...

But that'd be the IDW version, which probably has some design differences and wouldn't have his Targetmasters. :(

That probably leads to some sampling bias too, if that's the right word. Since you're only buying toys that you think are going to be great, you end up in a situation where you only have great toys...

The original Sixshot is pretty cool as well, though I think I actually prefer Quickswitch on the grounds that he's so bad that it's hilarious. I can't say I've ever had much ambition to own either...

Exactly! I mean, you could probably use modern engineering to make a better sixchanger with the same modes, but if the end result doesn't look like the character you're trying to evoke then what's...

So my Hexatron arrived today! After spending some time fiddling with him, I find myself both impressed and underwhelmed.

First, the positives:

It looks just fine as Greatshot, IMO, but I'm honestly not sure there's much market for that. Even by third-party standards he seems ridiculously obscure at a $150 price tag, and I don't know how...

Scoria is very pretty (that chrome!), but in spite of owning Slag as a kid I can't gather up any interest in a modern version of him at all. Their Swoop is basically perfect too, but Swoop likewise...

While I think the TFC F-15 looks pretty cool, it really doesn't look like an 80s Aerialbot at all. Hasbro's Air Raid (updated jet mode aside) looks like it stepped right off of a cartoon cell or...

If Anubis is what you're after, I think we need Knightdramon to give us that same pose using his Black Hexatron. :glance:
