    According to TFS-Express, the latest reissue of Koot had a bigger production run than many recent first run figures, still sold out within minutes of the pre-orders going up.
    So the amount being made isn’t the issue, can only assume demand has increased.

    It’s the Fanstoys Investment Bubble! I bought 20 myself to resell for $800 each.

    I think there is a large group of us bidding up the prices on spoiler for recent ebay auctions. Yeah...I’m in that boat too. I only recently purchased roadking, and because he is so great, I preordered the other two. If anyone on the boards has a spoiler for sale, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

    I don't understand why you guys just don't wait for the reissue. Spoiler is 100% going to get reissued. There is 0% chance that fanstoys won't reissue all 5 figures at the same time to capitalize on latecomers to the set.

    I know it doesn't make sense but some folks just want it now and make to much money to wait

    Edit: I'm not one of those people lol

    • It's speculated that Koot was reissued to compete with XTB's Kup.
    • The Insecticons and Dinobots are old sets.
    • This is an ongoing set and FT is a contender in the Stunticon wars.
    • Roadking got a reissue
    We don't know that Spoiler will be 100% reissued, but it looks highly, highly likely.

    I am not in the UK. I live in the USA in California. I am newer to collecting TF as an adult, so I definitely appreciate you all with your reissue info. I guess I will be patient and wait til the reissue or a decent price on Spoiler comes along. Thanks all.

    Dude, not even Fanstoys would be that stupid. This is a combiner set and that means that the super mass majority is obviously in it to have all five. Only an idiot would discontinue Roadking and never release him again once the last one comes out. I guarantee you that when the last figure is released you will see the other 4 popup on preorder. Quote me on that. 100%.

    LOL at "Koot was reissued to compete with XTB's Kup.".

    We don't even know if the later will be released this year.

    Good point. You are right - and I stated it like it was fact. Gonna edit that post.

    Interesting that this would mark the third release for Koot.

    No kidding. If he gets that high, I might sell mine and just get the inevitable reissue.

    I’m thinking about making my custom FansToys cards for sale. I posted some images of my G1 cards with the figures and those have some interested buyers. Maybe some FT collectors would be interested in those.
