Imagine the weight!
Imagine the shipping!!
Imagine the PRICE! Even BEFORE shipping. We're talking at least $1,000 USD here ($200 x 5). Simply not feasible for many.
If it is true that there are no plans to reissue Soar, I am very sad to hear this. I have nothing but love for Soar. It may not be perfect for some but it's perfect for me. And although I already have one, I like it so much, that I hope to get an "X" version as well. If only I wasn't strapped for cash right now.
This is great! You can also punch the pins if you have a punch. A lot quicker if you have the tools. Unfortunately I ran into the incorrectly sized clips. Had to drill them out. But he’s good now!
Thanks again for posting. Just received an extra coupld of spare pairs of gold die cast thigh/knee clips direct from FT. I'll have to make time to install them on my non-X Soars.
I got an email from FT CS stating that they got the parts I need from the factory and they will send them out. Nothing else since then. I'm kind of worried.
What parts were those?
The gold chrome right robot mode foot for Stomp, and gold parts for Soar.
how long ago?
both times I've gotten stuff from them it's taken a long old time to get through the post, I'm guessing it's the cheapest post option and maybe sea freight they are using.
Since last reply from them, about 2 weeks. I tried to confirm with them exactly the parts they're sending me, but all I got was that they got them from the factory and they'll be sending them. So I don't know if they're sending me Soar's gold parts or just Stomp's part? They seem to just write one sentence with as few words as possible. I'm not bashing them, just pointing out their communication style with me.
Im almost positive I waited nearly a month for the 2nd item, with no tracking no, but when it did turn up it had one applied to the package of course.
I'd say you'll probably get it all but not quite yet.
And yeah the communication isn't exactly a great literary work, its shortest answer serves. English isn't their 1st language I imagine so I cut them a lot of slack with that.
I have no choice but to wait and hope I get what I requested. Which kind of sucks because IF I don't get the parts for Soar, then I won't be able to get Soar X since they'll all be sold out by then. Time is not on my side since it sounds like FT won't be making anymore runs of Soar after they run out.
What Dbarricade said.
Is the new face included with Grinder all that much better than the stock one? I think the sad, stock one is perfect (the smiling one sucks).
But the new neutral is cool, but is it better than the sad stock?
What do you all think?
I prefer the original goofy smile for my Swoop.
Same here. Has an odd charm to it.
I like the original face, but I put on the new face because I think it is better. Not a must-have.
I personally like the newer face that came with Grinder. The older one looked... odd. With the new faces on all, the look of the group is more consistent.
I'm not sure I like the "chinny" look of the original face.
I think all of the new faces were improvements.
Here's hoping PF does a version of Swoop with fixes and a bump in height. I missed out on the blue version and I'm not interested in the red or X versions now avail
Does anyone have a blue swoop for sale in USA?
