    I probably prefer these, but for the money..I'd just get the MT Visualizers shipped for under $100.

    It probably means nothing, but I wrote FT and they told me there are no plans to reissue Spotter

    Felt same way and did order Maketoys. But...they look a tad cheapish, plus pics don't represent how PURPLE the Maketoys set is. I thought I could maybe do a few paint mods and enjoy them, but they are PURPLE. They aren't "sorta' purple," they are PURPLE. Really makes them look off to me on my shelf and it's tough to stand pat with them for me personally. Almost thinking about getting the KFC set if only because they are actually blueish in spite of their tiny heads, lol.

    Thanks for sharing, that puts realistic expectation instead of just blind hope I had.

    I recently replaced my Maketoys with FT.

    Found one at a local shop and haggled with the owner. Got 11% off from the original price.

    Some pictures for comparison.

    I'm honestly surprised these are not getting reissued, people are willing to pay way more than retail to get them so it'd seem a no brainer to do it, unless there is an issue with the molds or something like that of course

    That's his asking price, not what it's sold for. He'll never sell that unless it's part of a scam to fictionally raise the values.

    Looking at sales from the past couple months, he's selling anywhere from $250-300.

    Actually, prices on the bay seem to have up-ticked a little. I just paid $200 shipped for mine through a fellow TFW2005 member though.

    Last 3 sold (though the $550 one was almost guaranteed sold to an offer):

    Wow, makes me glad that I bought all the Spotters that I would ever need back when they first came out. Reflector is easily one of my favourites, and he makes a great army builder.

    With no Spotter reissue in sight, I might have to settle with the KFC Opticlones (if their reissue ever comes).
    I'm personally not a fan of MakeToys Visulizer.

    Holy hell I'm glad I got Spotter last year, I had no idea the asking price was that much these days!

    If I didn't have Spotter already, KFC would be my next choice. MT doesn't do it for me.
