When I dip into 3rd party toys, I usually restrict myself to add-on kits (like the Perfect Effect head/chest add-on Superion is sporting in a couple of the photos below). I prefer to support Hasbro/Takara in almost every case, especially since they've been so good at giving me what I want toy-wise from the Transformers like since 2007.
However, every now and again a 3P product arises from the sea of product that stands out amongst the rest; one that I simply have to own. ToyWorld Infinitor was one such toy, and now Planet X Vulcun is another. This figure is an absolute triumph, and is essentially the Grimlock figure I've always wanted. Its big, its sturdy, its poseable, its not hollow, AND its a virtal dead-ringer for Fall Of Cybertron Grimlock. IMHO he stands head-and-shoulders above all the other 3P not-Grimlock figures out there, and may be the best version of Grimlock we have ever gotten (only the Masterpiece Version can hold a candle to him).
This toy is SO good that I'm going to have to purchase the rest of the Planet X not-dinobots to go with it. Well-done Planet X!
