    I have a full set of toon, and will have a full set of x once grinder x is released. Toon mostly stay in bot made but are my go to set for messing with, x mostly sit in dino mode.
    As an aside I have one of each x soar, and a blue diaclone scoria.

    I'm not thinking about how much this has all cost.......

    All I know is when Grinder came out, someone took a picture of all 5 sitting on a table and said:

    "Just think...that's over a $1000 in toys right there...."

    My ass still burns to this day when I think about that o_O  (so I try really hard not to)

    I have every dibot release so far including 2 regular Grinders. I have no idea if I will have the resources to get all of the grinders but I will definitely get the x version.

    My total spending was $760. Feel lucky and I'm keeping them in Dino mode.

    Hah! Yea I feel the same way when it comes to all of the collectibles I have. I don't think about the money. From loose vintage GI JOEs figures form the 80s as well as those that are encased and graded by AFA to my current hobby of masterpiece and third party transformers, if I seriously took a pencil to all of these hobbies I would drop dead. LOFL. Jk.

    It's a hobby and most of time you just don't think about the money. Now if you spend more than what you can afford and find yourself strapped for cash for other more important and necessary things in life well then I guess you have to suffer the consequences of bad decisions. That is a personal choice. I like to think I collect within my means and quite honestly once I get sentinel aka Omega I'll be done collecting transformers with the exception of a MP jazz if that ever happens. My JOESs are done and my transformers will be done soon too. After that I'll just sit back and enjoy them with dioramas. Good day all!!:D :D

    Has anyone considered Bullsfire Air Strike as a (blue chest/standard grey) "stand in" until the hopefully re-reissue of regular Soar? I know he's on the small side in bot mode but his dino mode seems to match up ok scale and paint wise from what I've seen in reviews.

    Soar is all I lack to complete a full team, and cannot pull the trigger on the few questionable chinese sellers on ebay right now.

    I actually found and ordered one from wuhanlipu, the last one he had, and he has already sent me tracking... lets see how it goes...

    The others I was watching seemed a little suspicious and don't show up on our current list, neither good or bad.

    Anyone know any uk sellers still selling any versions of this? I just got sever and scoria for £170 in a joint deal which i couldn't turn down. To think grinder goes for £150 odd on its own!

    Does anyone have info on liuxufefei or skxx2016_3, they both have/had FT-05 Soar MISB, both auctions look(ed) identical from both. I contacted both and liuxufefei responded and stated there was a mistake with the description and that the last two he had were opened not MISB, then he must have changed the auction description to reflect that.

    Three people have bought a Soar from skxx2016_3 in the last couple of weeks... is that any members here?

    Don't know if they are safe or not...

    @dalianjj I think it's safe to say that Soar, Sovereign, and Forager all need to be reissued.

    I think a lot of the blue Soars on ebay are either a scam or actually the SoarX version

    Well here he is, maybe the last decent priced ($199) legit MISB regular re-release Soar, or at least that I could find. After months of hunting I received him from ebay seller wuhanlipu today, in mint MISB condition, and only 9 days form China to my door step!!! That dude is awesome!!!

    It's ironic how an X version is more readily available than the regular version.

    Was that his last copy?

    Yeah, for now any way. Here's to hoping that he lists more for anyone here still needing it, cause he's the only legit seller who's listed one reasonably priced in quite a few months.

    You guys still looking may already know this but it may help when searching on Ebay to use "Darts" in the place of "Soar", that's how I found mine. :thumb
