    I was about to say the same thing. I remember BBTS having them a LONG while back (after the Alternators line was getting into the swing of things). I did a quick search there and didn't run across any--that's not to say they don't have them though.

    Good luck finding what you're looking for, bro.

    I like the motorcycle...I need to find one of those. 1:24 motorcycle would be about 6-7
    inches?

    I think it should be around that. I'm kinda interested in that Hummer and seeing someone possibly try to do a Trailbreaker from it.

    Some of the figures they have are amazing. I sent them an email inquiring about prices to the US. There's a "cart" link and "inquiry" button which gives a form for info request.

    Yeah, I've seen some cool ones--the only downside is a lot of them lack good articulation, but then again, that's our specialty, right? lol

    I actually emailed them about 2 and half years ago, around when they first came out. They seemed reasonably priced - I think $10 for the 1/24 and $20 for 1/18 scale ones. I priced out like 10 of the 1/24 and 4 of 1/18 ones and it was like $50+ shipping altogether. I think they deal with just 'businesses' so you'd need to order cases or mixed cases of stuff.

    I noticed the "cases" remarks on their site. I'd really like to use those X-bot animal types for Predacons...I wonder if I just buy a box of each type, I can sell the rest on ebay

    Most Roadbots suffer from extreme partsforming, kibble, poor articulation and flexy plastic in robot mode. They're usually rock-solid and nicely detailed in alt mode though.

    This is so true....

    I got the 1:24 Land Rover...Alt mode is pure win, I gave it some 'Vette seats and swapped the factory wheels and tires for a set of Alt Hound wheels and tires....this was like "putting the cherry on top"

    Bot mode?...I've changed the head, gave it Alt Hound hands, and it still is kinda "MEH" in bot mode....but I'm always looking for ways to improve upon it

    Thanks for those personal notes on these...
    The bikes looks good though, as do those Xbot things, I think they'd make very nice base molds for bashing from.

    I think they are reissuing these next month. At least that's what info I gathered from a distributor I know. Since these things are so big though the prices are pretty high.

    I inquired about those animal robots a year ago and got the same notice that F_R did. They sent me some type of excel document with a few tidbits of information. I tried to contact someone but couldn't reach a live person.

    Let me know if anyone has any luck. I'd love to order some bots in bulk from these guys.
