Bought the new Luke, Stormtrooper and Kylo Ren Force Link figures. For my son, but I've been messing with them. Force-link is a better version of Commtech.

These toys are a huge improvement over the TFA ones.

Oh, nice! While I didn't like TFA I really liked Poe. Not sure why exactly, maybe it was because he was a decent character who didn't need to be a hero.

The helmet looks really good. I saw one customized by semi-chroming the mouthpiece. Looked movie prop quality.

Their black series helmets are quite good IMO. Poe's seems heavier than the others which I'd say is because the padding is different and it has 3 speakers inside as opposed to the single one for Kylo Ren and Storm Trooper that have the speech modulator gimmick. As display pieces they are great. Its my 4th one and they look much better than the Rubies ones and more realistic than Hasbro's earlier Bobba Fett and Captain Rex ones which have that sort of, big head mode look to them. Poe's is also great because it has an off switch. Knocking the Iron Man one in the night makes one hell of a fright as the eyes light up and its sounds power on.

For me its like having the Anovo's style helmets but at a fraction of the price and although they aren't 501st/Star Wars costuming standard approved, they are pretty great for cosplay at a convention.

Master made scorpion and weijiang evasion prime.

If you are a fan of the movie version of this mild then you will love this. He is bigger. Plastic quality is fantastic. I would go as far as to compare it with a masterpiece TF.

Fire the master made scorpion. Robot mode is good as is the scorpion mode. Base mode though is pretty poor. I've tried to find some other base mode configurations so I'll try and put a pic up later.

Today received Fanstoys Grinder - G (G2 MP styled Grimlock).

He's pretty great. But that does not surprise me since they were working off the Engineering skeleton of MP Grimlock.

G2 Blue Grimlock is a fantastic nostalgia hit.

I wouldn't want to have a whole set of Dinobots at this size though - too biiig.

Ho I didn't realize how big Fanstoys Grinder was.
I only have the two FT Dino bots (Soar & Scoria) and thought that MP Grimlock would be okay?
Guess not :D
