    I feel like Wei Jiang's fix helped a lot with Ironhide and Ratchet's chests (though since they are OS KOs they don't work with a regular MP collection). Just removing the front bumper and wrapping it around the back really seems to change them from beer bellied to barrel chested like they are meant to be.

    Tried it on mine, and just like @Thibkaji, I was successful. So, as long as that bicep piece holds Smokey's legs in place, should be no problem with the elbow articulation.

    I hope Smokey pops up somewhere somehow for $180 CAD again... waiting did me good for spoiler and magnum, hopefully it will be that way for smokey too. And if my bandit preorder works out, saving a few doesn't feel so bad either.

    Got him for $120 on a whim.
    To be honest, he's the weakest of the 4 bots.
    Glad to welcome him though, they're all on the lookout for Deadend... 20210202_213536.jpg

    When did you order yours? I got an email that says it shipped and OnTrac is supposed to receive it on Jan 27th. OnTrac is still showing blank right now.

    I’ve done some digging. My Smokey is literally on the slow boat from China.

    My Smokey got shipped! It will come alongside FHobby Power Baser (PM Optimus prime).
    Now its time to wait for Bandit... and a chance to preorder it on the first place.

    FT is not doing Ultra Magnus.
    They said they don't do figures that have been released by Takara.
    Grim and Hoodlum were exceptions.
    Grinder to match their dino's and Hoodlum to match their s3 bots heights.
    But then again, we see Soundwave on the horizen.
    Maybe there's hope. As they want a Magnus to match their other s3 bots.

    Deadend: who cares.
    MM: you think Fanstoys will stop?
    DE: you've got a point.
    MM: Stunticons, wait for Fanstoys announce new bots. Especially Bruticus. So we can one punch him.

    I really, really, REALLY hope that FT makes a proper Rodimus Prime.

    Me2.
    Hope it's not another Hoodlum.
    Sorry but Hoodlum is a big fail in my eyes.
    Rouge is even worst.
    Glad i got the Takara version. Besides the backpack, she look so much better and cartoon accurate. Do need the boob upgrades though.

    Fanstoys FT31D FT-31D Smokey Drag Strip

    One Smokey left @$180 USD shipped. Seems to be a little better than market, as silly as that is...

    Edit: Seems like possibly slower shipping than places like ShowZ. Maybe that's why?

    I hope FT is putting some thought into increasing the size of their production runs this year. The markup of these figures immediately following release is ridiculous.

    It's normal these days with ft figures.
    You just have to pre order it for the lowest price.
