    The canceled one definitely showed as instock, as I saw it in stock, but when I put it in my cart it was gone.

    It's mostly the other stores that do that I think. Can't blame them really.

    My Magnum came in (greasy, is that normal?), with a stressed joint.
    What can be done about this? Contact the seller or FT directly?

    This is one set where both modes are awesome. Some say they are not accurate to real life vehicles. I personally don't care.

    I realize that you want to honor to what you initially commited.

    It would be great, though, if you could consider providing them also in individual boxes for several reasons:

    - people could buy them one after the other to take a smaller hit on their finances at one time
    - some people might only want Bandit
    - easier storage
    - two separate box arts (one for Bandit and one for the combined mode)

    I would really like both of them being in their own box which are then held together by a wrap/slipcase (to make them technically come as one).

    Greasy seems to be a common occurrence,. I just wipe them down. The stressed joint is concerning though. I would contact them directly.

    Looks like maybe they just missed wiping down the outside of the bot before putting it in the package. Grease is normal for FT these days though.

    I literally still have grease dripping out of my copy of Sheridan that I received... in April 2020.
