    BBTS will have at least one more Andras. I bought one by mistake (long story, don't ask) and shipped him back unopened for a refund. I can't afford to buy any more expensive figures for a while. Depending on whether or not BBTS restocks unopened returns, my loss might be someone else's gain. So keep an eye out over the next week or two, I guess?

    There really isn't a QC issue with this guy. It's just got some really messed up engineering in the feet but it works. A video review like you had makes it easier for sure. Just be sure to check it over for missing fingers, beard stuff like that but it should be fine to get if you want one. He was actually pretty well praised when it first came out (that's unusual for an XTB figure).

    I agree that Andras is a great figure. So much so that I've been passively looking for a swarm set on the cheap... Anyone have any good leads?

    Thank you

    Wait until FT releases their Scourge and what remains of Andras will drop significantly in price and fans will resell theirs at a discount.

    FT's Cyclonus and Scourge sadly aren't even in prototype form yet as far as we know. But I'm sure you can find a board member willing to part with theirs.

    Eh... I wouldn't assume this is going to be the case.

    I love FansToys and all, but I don't foresee some kind of rush to "upgrade" this guy. Aside from the feet transforming issue - which is not THAT much of an issue at all, really - this is a solid figure. And it's pretty much a perfect depiction of the character. Besides, from what I've seen in the past, the only time this phenomenon occurs is when Takara releases an official version, not another third party company.

    Agreed, with all the Megatron options now you don't actually see that many Apollyon owners clamoring to make a move - he's still arguably the best display piece there is. And depending on the final finish on the new MP Megs, that may not even change. Sure he's not fun to transform, but most MP collectors don't "play" with their stuff too often. That's what the stuff on the shelf is for :)

    I transformed my Andras today and found 2 small QC issues. He has a stripped screw that allows the foot section to separate a little with some pressure, and hes missing a shiny blue paint dab on the knee! Both these issues are practically invisible without closer inspection- but I know they are there.

    Darn it XTB! You did it again!

    Contact them - I got an Appolyon cannon that way. I think I had to pay a few bucks but nothing major, no biggie.

    What's the best way to reach XTB? Do you have their email address? Are they pretty good about answering inquiries and providing spare/extra parts & accessories?

    Yeah, I believe that's the email I used as well. I tried FB - I didn't get a response that way.

    They were good about sending the cannon. Like I said, it was a few bucks, maybe five - it was really my fault that mine was missing so I didn't really care about paying it. It was basically for shipping. I would do the same thing if I had any similar issues with Andras or potentially their Cyclonus... I still haven't made up my mind about that guy... I'd like him, but it's really coming down to priorities - got to pay for Dirge first, then FT's Skyfire and Omega. :)
