    I still find myself wondering where things are truly at with the skeleton - and how far it is from retail. I wonder if they've done a ton of revisions, reworks and design changes and are on the verge of a breakthrough. Or are they still scratching their heads as to how the heck this thing will work. And not just design and development, but testing and trialing materials that will be able to adequately address the weight, posability, tension on connection points etc. I wonder if they've nearly got it all sorted or if they're still a very long way off...... I agree with previous comments about Bandit himself, I'm sure they've got him done and dusted IMO.

    I think Bandit is long done as well. As for the combiner parts, I think they had a model ready, then saw how XTB did it, thought "OMG AWESOME LET'S DO THAT (in Chinese)", did just that, then someone noticed DX9, thought "THAT'S COOL LET'S DO THAT TOO (in Chinese)", found out it didn't work, went back to scratching their heads, and are now trying to hybridize all of it together in something that is stable, solid, and functional.

    Given that the stunticons and aerialbots releases have always alternated, it is more to wonder if FT has problems with Hollywood (FT-30D) as it has not yet been announced. Until Hollywood is out, I doubt we'll ever have a date for Bandit

    I think they want to complete their Stunticons first, before they finish their Aerialbots. And the sudden re-releases of earlier figures might suggest they need a bit of cashflow for it.

    It’s hard to believe Fanstoys is strapped for cash, it’s more likely they’re unsure of how their combiners will fully work and are doing a little QC

    Yeah, I've got several different pics thru the years, this is only the last one that I saw, and not all of them are equally transformed.

    Through the years... Man. FT has got to finish this combiner. It's been 26-27 months since Roadking first dropped.

    We need to have some faith, after reading dalianjj's interview from a few years ago that @Marcelo Antunes reposted recently, the man and his partners are true Transformer's fans themselves. They would never put out anything that they wouldn't buy themselves! Let's give them some time to knock it out of the park!

    And that's what we all want, isn't it? Yes, I'm bummed that my combiners aren't complete yet. But I can wait, and I have other figures on the way.

    It's a good thing I already put my order in with Baba. And yes, that's probably my 6th time saying that ;)

    I'm down to throw a few bucks that way if you guys actually do it!

    Don't forget to ask for the expiration date on the card.

    Also, it'd be good to add in a quip about how people need to "act quickly!" At the end. Maybe "act quickly, or Fanstoys will go out of buisness and Kieths Fantasy Club will win! Act now to support FansToys and destroy the evil Kieth once and for all"

    Attention all Fans Toys collectors:

    Dalianjj is in great danger and he needs your help to finally finish Dead End and Menasor, so he can then defeat the evil Keith of Keith's Fantasy Club and X-Transbots. But to do this, he needs some floor polish and to release a couple of reissues during the interim.

    To help him, all he needs is your credit card number, the three digits on the back, and the expiration month and year.

    But, you gotta be quick, so Dalianjj can pump out the bots for $400 each, watch the pre-orders sell out, defeat Keith and achieve the epic Victory Royal!


    Context for the uninitiated: Voiceover Pete became an overnight sensation back late in 2018 for a specific commission he did, the entirety of it is supposed to be a bastardization and parody of various ACTUAL credit card scams that target children.



    EDIT: Added the recommended Keith quip from above (credit to @TransformerFanatic for that one).

    Bandit is long done. They are still trying to figure out whether to charge customers 375.99 or 377.94 ..............
