    Well, there you go....

    Warbot Defender - by Fansproject

    Wasn't expecting him to be restocked for another month or two.

    Fansproject Insecticons were restocked as well.

    Not sure if the news should be posted here or in the news section...

    You did right. The new rules for the 3rd Party Forum is that 3rd Party News goes here as well. The thinking is to unclutter the official TF News Forum.

    Anyway, glad they're instock again... Unfortunately, I still don't have any money for them yet. ~_~' & I want both the Warbot Defender & all the Insecticons... as well as Battle Tanker... So much money... @_@

    I'd pay £50.00 ($85.00) for one I find it hard to justify £70.00+ when I'd also have to get a replacement rotor system and heels on top too. if they knock a bit off the price sometime I'll buy one otherwise I'm not to bothered.

    I don't know about across the pond, but I thought those heels were dirt cheap ( as in price, not quality ) . Why would you have to get a replacement rotor system? I've found the one provided, albeit a post and port, works fine.

    I'm sorta tempted to buy another Warbot Defender since mine has horrible QC issues. I think I'll pass though.

    Is there a place to easily buy the Warbot heels? I knew they existed but I never bothered to look because I never had one, but I should be getting one from BBTS so now I guess I am interested!

    Yeah, I'd rather get all of Devastator at once, too, rather than spread out the wait. Unfortunately, no money means no toys... But once I do have money, I should be able to get everything in one fell swoop.

    I'd estimate from tomorrow to a week. I didn't check how many they were getting, that could be the hold up.

    Loose knees, loose shoulders, loose arm joints, and a loose pin that attaches the chest piece with the rest of the body (it slides out whenever I transform it, but I'm able to push it back in)

    And all of this happened within 24 hours after I got the figure. It basically turned into a rag doll after I transformed it and fiddled with him a bit.

    $85 was the original MSRP, so it's completely implausible to expect the same price in 2012.

    Heels and rotor are in no way required. I'm going to ask a customizer friend of mine to make me a pair of heels from his spare parts, it'll take him half an hour tops.

    I really don't see them knocking the price down, since he was selling on eBay for $150 and more. Believe me, I've been checking auctions daily.
