I probably prefer these, but for the money..I'd just get the MT Visualizers shipped for under $100.
i know a few of y’all gonna be SICK when ft eventually reissues this.
KFC is supposedly reissuing their set.
My problem with KFC's is the middle guy has Galvatron-like shoulder pads...bugs me.
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.
Ive already accepted im never owning these dudes.
I love Spotter. One of my faves.
Wow. The price is going crazy for spotter. I would love to see someone take Spotter to the Pawn Stars guys and see what they would give for it. I'm thinking about $20.

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!
Well, while we're all in a spending money sort of mood, here is Spotter and the 3 Insecticons from FT's in one deal (not mine):

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