    Watch, if Bandit is released soon and the combine mode sucks, everyone will complain how FT shouldn’t have rushed putting this out.

    I, on the other hand, will be gluing it together into the perfect Menasor.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Fans Toys released Bandit by himself and the combiner bits later, like Xtransbots did with their trailer.

    There’s no guarantee that people would buy the trailer then. I do want it by itself though. I have no room for the combiner tbh

    You make a good point but like the longer we wait the more people are going to sell their fanstoys stunticons and go for xtransbots or dx9. I think we all know that bandit is good and ready to be released and they should at least release him to keep people interested in the set you know. But knowing Fanstoys, they're not going to do that because they want your money.

    And you know they'll buy them back once the last member is put up for official PO.

    Seems like the prices are even lowering on sets of 4 people are selling. I saw all 4 for $600 on FB which is pretty close to original release price.

    People bought a head, of course they'll buy the trailer once it's out.

    Now that's not quite true. XTB's had several material breakage and crumbly-plastic issues with their Stunticons. I believe three of the four carbots have had multiple reports of common parts breakages, with Dragstrip being the worst, and XTB has failed to fix it even on the most recent version released (Youth/toy Dragstrip). Even their replacement parts for that one are the same problematic material/design so it remains unresolved and likely to fail over time.

    While I would like to have FT's fourth carbot on display in the meantime, I don't mind them taking longer to do the Menasor structural parts well so it will endure and not be loose, crumbly or prone to break.

    I am always willing to wait for a better product. I am hoping that these combiners will be the final iterations in my collection, it is not my intent to swap out too many more bots. Well, that’s what I tell myself anyway.

    This is my one real need in my collection... If FT did Constructicons like they did their Stunticons, I'd be all in, I don't care how they combine. A toon accurate Hook would be downright savage.

    Yeah, I was just playing the Transformers devastation game and there’s a level where you’re fighting Hook and Scrapper I think, it made me realize how cool the individual robot modes are.

    :D  That's a great game. Seriously, picture a Hook figure done as well as FT did with Spoiler. And the same height too. Take my money

    Hmm, maybe for him they don't have to slavish recreate the animation model, specifically those legs, sweet Primus. Not sure how the wheels are part of the arms thing would be possible either.

    If it's FT I'd hope they do it right and don't go too far toon but blend toy & toon, so we get awesome toy-infused alt mode details and botmodes that make the tooners happy.
