Great review, solid shots,

Great review, solid shots, couple of things. I bought 2 of these I was that excited about them. First of all I love diaclone figures I think they absolutely make transformers make sense. The fact that FP updated them 30 years later made my head explode. I love this new little guy. I also love Sludge always my favorite G1 Dinbot, I also love FP and Maketoys. All that being said Columpio is an epic disappointment. He looks great but feels like a cheap piece of plastic. The hip joints on mine are also cheap and loose. This is a $100 dollar retail figure with zero metal let's be honest I should NOT need floor polish FP get your shit together. (I am being kind this is a $200 figure if you weren't at SDCC) I would not recommend this guy and plan on checking out Toyworld's offering for Dinobots instead. For one chrome is standard on theirs not "exclusive" and I can only hope the plastic quality is better. When you read things like "ratchet joints" you think "Oh, ratchet joints quality" think again a ratchet joint on cheap plastic still sucks. I know I have a reputation for getting heated about things but I am trying help. If you are considering this toy the figure is light, lose and not worth what they are asking. My opinion but as Morrissey says "why don't you find out for yourself." Yup quoted Morrissey.

Nice review

That was a nice review and I can tell how much you love the robot. Do you how it compares to the quality of FansToys Scoria? The FansProject NOT Dinobots looks a little small and simple Vs. FansToys', but that little piot guy is a cool adder. Thank you.

I have Scoria it's extremely

I have Scoria it's extremely high quality and considerably larger than Columpio. It's meant to scale with MP-10. Bigger than MP-10. I would highly recommend it. It's actually better quality than Takara MP-10 and more diecast.
