Congrats. Welcome to the club.
Man this guy looks awesome. Almost enough to get me to buy the line.
I almost decided not to. But I am glad I did now that I have him in-hand.
Cant get sever till soar is reissued
Will not except red.
Well, you could buy a blue Soar X and a red normal Soar, bash yourself a Blue Soar and sell the unholy abomination you're left with on eBay.
I almost did that...in more desperate times....
I've been watching, debating, and almost buying Sever for over a year now...
Snarl was my favorite Dinobot. I'm sick of ebay shenanigans and thinking about just pulling the trigger on one at TFS for the peice of mind.
I'm a little confused about the different variants. I get the diaclone, G2, and x versions. But they have two listed on their site one for $199 and one for $194 but is sold out. Can anyone tell if what if any, the difference is?
Both are the "regular" versions of Sever. The $199 is the new version; the $194 is MIB, which I presume means the box has been unsealed and the toy inside may have been taken out.
You may wish to know that the regular version of Sever is listed for $160 at BBTS. It's fab.
I've been lucky to have almost EVERY purchase from various 3rd Party companies to be extremely satisfactory. But with every FT Dibot is have gotten so far (all but Slag), they've exceeded my expectations even though I was already impressed with them in pictures and video. I find it difficult to list them in order of which I like most to least. It's like picking between your own children. I can't because I love them all. That's me. I can't wait to get back and fiddle with him. I got the substandard, so the box has a ding on the bottom back corner from BBTS. I'm OCD, but I can live with it. The main thing is the figure itself is fantastic!!!
This is one awesome club! Thanks.
I'm also getting into Fans Hobby Monster Bot club. Ordered Flypro (Grotesque). So it should be cool to have another set of very unique G1 MP Transformers.
I don't think there will be a reissue. Not for a long time, anyway. I have the red version, and I'm extremely happy with it. I also preferred in getting the blue chest Soar. But Figured I have the G1 Swoop with the red chest, I'll just settle for the red one. I have no regrets. He's a beauty! But if you truly ONLY want the blue one, I hope you'll get it soon and at a good price.
Netclow, Baba, and Toyfly are the only three I trust and have ordered from on eBay with 3P purchases. On TFW, the one for $199 is probably the recent reissue MISB and the $194.94 was probably opened, but mint. Don't know if TFS accepts returns, or what the history is regarding that one, but it's sold out and there isn't any difference That I know of between the two.
@Twin Lambo fan Scowly is right. Domestically BBTS currently has the best deal on regular version of Sever. You'd receive it from them in about a week. If you can, then pull the trigger as we all know how it is when FT products dry up and become scarce. Sellers start scalping.
Thanks for the tips guys. Will buy him this weekend.
Oh I bought him at launch, my current dino collection is:
Scoria, Scoria D, Scoria X
Sever, Sever D, Sever X
Grinder, Grinder D
Soar Blue x2, Soar Red
3x FT smokey Scoria heads
1x FT Grinder head
+ MP Grimlock, Guttur, Guttur Chrome
Does dalianjj send you Christmas cards?
No but TFS express are super kind to me.
Is that... chartreuse?
Woo hoo! Bought a Sever today. Now to just wait for him to arrive.
Sever's been getting a lot of love here lately.
Were the gap fillers ever made for this version?
I think they come with G2 Grinder, but I don't have any yet.
