    It’s been 7 months since my last hit. I tried some re-issues but they didn’t hit the same. I’m just taking it one day at a time man, this is a marathon not a sprint!

    … the reward is not the completed Menasor combiner… it’s about the friends made along the way… and all the salty angry fanboys tears you can drink.

    :D  :D  :D

    It’s not about the pre-orders you pay off, it’s the small endorphin rush of $1 deposits you drop along the way!

    Never understood the $1 deposit deal?

    Why $1? Why not $5… or $.50 cents? Soooo random.

    Well it was nice that they were consistent at least. Now every place has random deposit prices up to like $30-$40 for Cerebros

    I always thought it was a bit of a reach, as it meant they have to release two figures per month, without fail, for three years straight.

    Devastator: 6 figures
    Superion: 5 figures
    Menasor: 5 figures
    Defensor: 5 figures
    Bruticus: 5 figures
    Computron: 5 figures
    Abominus: 5 figures
    Predaking: 5 figures
    Monstructor: 6 figures
    Raiden: 6 figures
    Piranhacon: 6 figures

    So that's 54 figures in total, provided they also wanted to do the lesser known (in the Western world) combiners like Raiden and Monstructor. Even if you just strictly go by the Western G1 cartoon combiners (so no Raiden, Monstructor, Piranhacon), that's still 36 figures. That's exactly one combiner figure per month, which means no room for other releases.

    Absolute madness. :eek:

    When FT said "all combiners" I don't think they had the last 3 combiners on your list in mind.

    Perhaps that was before the realization that prices could be much higher and reissues could be super profitable. Plans change.

    their new plan seems to be to release things from least demand to most. At least under the official "Fanstoys" name.

    What if FT never releases Bandit? Even Takara has abandoned a combiner midway through (telemocha line). What if the real Bandit was the friends we made along the way?
