Size of Menasor is around 11.5 inches, which for us Europeans is a tad short of 30 centimetres tall. He's bigger than Bruticus with the crossfire sets.

I have no idea how big any other third party combiners are, but 11.5" is certainly a decent size! An inch over recent Leader Class figures.

Think shorter than FOC Bruticus, but far thicker and heavier.

Re-watching video reviews of them. One way or another, I'll probably go after them. They look right up my alley in regards to engineering.

Apparently the PE "Fortress Maximus" will still have the tank treads, but what it turns into is... Fort Max's head... plus a weird tank thing that carries a Max-sized cannon...

There's also another third party head for Bludgeon coming out by them, plus one for Overlord...

Happy with the Blood one, personally.

Cheers for the pointer. Don't think they're better than the originals, personally, but it's nice to see that someone's trying -- not very enamoured of the Ramhorn and Steeljaw moulds that KFC have done, either.

Is it just me or does the head look a bit small on not-Predaking?

A little bit... I'd wager it's because it's incorporated into Razorclaw's body instead of being a separate piece like the original.

Although it does lead to the tangent thought that Transformers, empirically speaking, have tiny heads considering most of them are humanoid in shape.

This may actually give me the little push I need and purchase at least a few FOC Combaticons
3rd party FOC Onslaught

Don't understand the fuss about this - perfectly happy with the original retail release personally. See little benefit with this 3rd party thing. Incredibly underwhelming.

I haven't touched the originals; never got them, but by all first-hand accounts and photogalleries, Onslaught/Impactor is an atrocious figure.

Coupled with the fact that this is a sci-fi looking cybertronian-vehicles and whatnot gestalt [lots of ticks there for lots of fans], I can see why this is such a fuss. And that Onslaught does do justice to the cgi model.

All the FoC Combaticons are pretty bad, by all accounts.

Not entirely sure that stocky thing is better than the official Onslaught. The combined mode is nicer but it looks worse in robot mode so at best I'd call it a wash. Personally I don't see the point in upgrade kits for a toy that most fans don't actually seem to like, especially when Fansproject's Bruticus is still so popular and it's only a matter of time before somebody makes a G1-styled Bruticus from scratch. I guess some folks who really like the FoC style will buy it, but that sounds like a really small niche market even compared to most third-party stuff.

There's already one coming. Realistic-type, based on G1. Appears to be huge as well. Can't seem to locate the thread on tfw2005 right now.

There's another add-on kit for FOC Bruticus up for preorder at BBTS which seemed to be very popular with the fandom interested in it; I suppose the same people interested in an add-on kit for their Bruticus would be interested in a brand new core figure, which is what people were asking for ever since release.

not Bruticus' head is too small. Or his hands are too big.

Those things look like they're going to be massive. Nice alt modes, robot modes are pretty good, although the limb-bots suffer from odd proportions and i'm not sure about the wispy hands they all have.
