    TFSource's weekly newsletter claims they have their stock of Roadking in now, although their actual web site still has it listed as a pre-order. I personally wouldn't put any faith in it nor am I likely to ever buy from them again, but if you're local to their store, maybe you can take a shot at trying to get it a day or so sooner than most others.

    Nah, I just bought one from an eBay seller. At 140 dollars though, I'll receive either a can of sardines or perhaps a KOed G1 Motormaster ;)

    Yeah, it's The Dojo or TCP I believe.

    TFS newsletter is a joke.


    Who was the seller, dc? Have you bought from him/her before?

    That's a damn good price. Shipped, I'm assuming?

    I don't want to name him because I am sure it's a scam. Yes it's 140 shipped. So why did I still do it? In the past I've gotten lucky, and every year I would take ONE chance on an unknown seller.

    TFSource has changed everything including the image for Roadking to say Arriving Soon. ROFL !!! I think that's where the confusion came from.

    How come we dont see any pics of the actual product overseas? Not even any asian reviews of Roadking. Dont they get theirs first? Or will it be released first in North American and the UK?

    Nowadays FT would first release their products to the overseas markets. A domestic release typically follows a couple of weeks after.

    From what I understand Fanstoys are really strict with release areas and often supply Western markets before Eastern, which is why ppl ordering from China and Hong Kong invariable are waiting for a bit.

    Good point. Not all products hit overseas first simply because that's where they get manufactured.

    Kinda scary and exciting at the same time to buy blindy without any pics or reviews. But I've been looking forward to this release for such a long time. I hope all the hype is worth it. I havent bought anything from Fanstoys since Koot.
