The tank looks a bit weird...
Robot mode looks nice though. That's one of the few third party toys I would consider. And no doubt one of the priciest. . .

Nifty Bruticus. LOOK AT IT.

The size comparison to the Fansproject toy would mean the combined mode is about 14 to 16 inches tall; about the same size as Hercules or Armada Unicron.

Looks like a disturbing lack of shin guns.

That's what I thought, they're really going to need to add those (I wonder how long before we get third party leg guns for Trailbreaker as well?).

First thing I thought upon seeing it as well. A sad omission, considering that's an otherwise spot-on reproduction of the ugly-but-somehow-still-popular IDW Maximus design.

That looks totally awesome! What size are these guys, and are the others good? The Stunticons were always my fave combiner... I'm am extremely tempted but want to be sure they're worth it (will cost me about 260 GBP for all five shipped to UK as far as I gather, so a substantial investment).

Way too green for my taste.

I've got the four cars that have been released so far, and they're quite wonderful. They're a bit in between scout and deluxe size... probably erring closer to deluxe as those continue to shrink. Will take some comparison photos with other stuff if you'd like.

Lots of info and pictures in the TFW thread, largely grouped into the first post.

That would be really helpful if you could. They do look very nice, but not many folk seem to have comparisons with mainstream figures I have. The Classics Seeker mould would be a good one.

The new motormaster looks great, especially in truck mode. Not sure, however, how much I'd be willing to commit to them as a team. They do appear nice and angular, and it will inevitably lead into a downward spiral in which I'll also have to get Giant and maybe Colossus.

Stop enabling me dude!

Dead End in car mode looks much nicer in your pics than in his official pics.

Thanks Clay! Good choice of Seeker too. So is that about shoulder height to Skywarp? Not as small as I thought! The Gestalt will be pretty sizeable in that case...



They really look very very very nice... Oh buggery, I'm so close to clicking order on these guys and Terminus Hexatron, but that's quite a bit of dosh... Why have two awesome but expensive third party items come out at the same time, after years of bugger all of interest?
