    I generally like FT's stuff and I do think that their Insecticons are unambiguously the best looking set that have been released. BUT. I recently picked up the MMC set and, having it in hand and looking at the FT ones anew, I gotta say - I don't have to have them anymore. They look good, but not THAT much better. I paid $100 for all three MMC figures. $100 wouldn't have paid for even one FT Insecticon when they were issued, forget about now. Hopefully people will eventually have another shot at these. But for me, at some point, do I have to have the most absolute epic version of every character? No. Obviously, for someone who has a real passion about the Insecticons, the situation is a bit different. But letting the perfect be the enemy of the good is a recurring theme in fandom.

    Latest word from FT rep within the past week was still no plans to reissue them at this time. Perhaps in a couple months, plans will change. :)

    Everybody had a chance to buy them when they were released. It doesn't always pay to wait for a flash sale

    Not necessarily true. Some people are relatively new collectors. Grey chest Bombshell was already sold out everywhere when I started.

    The only reissue I wanted from them I got. I have a couple of their new ones on pre-order and would rather they actually get these out. I also not against reissues, but it seems those take away from new production most of the time.

    Seriously, FT has enough exciting stuff in the pipeline that I'd rather they just focus on getting it out rather than continuously revisiting old projects - even if I personally would like to get my hands on some of those. Anything that delays FT Astrotrain is my mortal enemy.

    I also have a set for 450$ shipped in USA/Canada, if anyone wants, with Purple Grenadier FT-12T, FT-13, and FT-14. Or if you want just Mercenary and Forager, 375$ shipped. All 3 have Ocean Decepticon symbols on them.

    For forager, i have spares for it, as in 2 sets of extra wings, just in case...I also have an extra head for Forager, in case you want to do mods on one of them, or one of the ears gets damaged, or what not.

    If you want just FT Forager, you can have him for 290$ shipped, fully insured.

    No official box(s), they are loose and all 3 in great condition. See my sales thread.

    Pm me.

    I wonder if FT will reissue these straight up, or will there be a v2 with design enhancements like their Seaspray?

    That will always be a thing.


    Fact remains, a lot of people simply don't PO things when they have the chance in order to save 0.36 cents on a sale or something. I sold my set for more than I ever paid for the originally. Just obscene.

    There will always be a poor soul willing to pay $$$.

    I'm suddenly reminded the good old days on the Allpark boards, when we had particular members that would act a fool and troll heavily in general we would give them a wonderful custom tag of Moron.

    Dont know why that comes to mind.....
