    The last official word is that they were going to be included with Dead End. Of course, at that time we were also told that Dead End would cost about as much as Motormaster, but with FT's price hikes lately I don't think anyone seriously believes that.

    I'd personally see Dead End top at $200 if a hike is to be there. Though at least we have a bit of leeway for reasoning of the high price thanks to the combiner parts.

    Just ordered Motormaster and Wildrider off of eBay. Trusted sellers, great feedback reviews, and good prices. Motormaster was $160 when all was said and done, and Wildrider was $150. Hopefully, I should have them next month sometime. Still no real good deals for Breakdown. Probably will have to wait for a reissue haha. I am excited, I’ve wanted to get in on this set for sometime.

    Those are great prices! Congratulations. I only have Motormaster so far, but like many have opined, I feel he's one of the most intimidating-looking figures on my shelf. You'll really enjoy him. be patient with the transformation - it's not hard, but there are a lot of small steps. Hooray!!

    Thanks! Watched a lot of reviews on these guys, and I have a few other FansToys pieces, so I have an idea on how they engineer things haha. Anything is easier than Rouge! Looking forward to it!

    Can't speak for Rouge because I never bothered to transform her but Roadking is pretty much a nightmare to transform the first time. Watch some YouTube videos on him and it will make your life much easier.

    Disagree, Roadking was one of FTs easiest to Transform. Just takes time.

    There are one or 2 tabs that on first attempt were super tight, but I mean, that goes for many 3p, not just FT.
    But yeah, otherwise totally agreed.

    Fans Toys ease of transformation goes from easy and fun with the dinobots, to more complex but fun with Road King and Spoiler... And then there's... Everything else.

    Roadking isn't difficult, just time-consuming. And you can't transform him in your lap; his legs kind of explode out and then come back together, and you need a desk or a table to rest him on while you're working. Transforming Rouge is actual torture. I did it once and wound up resenting her for it, to the point where I'd get angry whenever I'd see her on my shelf. I wound up selling her.

    Spoiler and Magnum are easy, though.

    Seems fishy, in particular because this price can only be found in China (and not now, even in China Spoiler is more than 140 right now, when you can find it).

    Yeah I figured it seemed too good to be true. Just figured I'd ask you all! Thanks.

    If you want Spoiler and do not want to pay current prices, the best thing is to wait for the reissue that will come. I´ve got one and will need another, but I will certainly not pay the current prices (I bough mine in China 4 months ago and paid 93 USD, and it was already a lot more expensive than it should (preorders should be something like 70 USD or less)).

    Oh I am absolutely waiting for a reissue. I put myself on waitlists at most of the official online retailers. I wasn't about to jump the gun on the insane prices, or strangely cheap options haha. Utilizing my patience. Thanks!

    You can do it in your lap but even doing one leg at a time it just flops all over the place
