    yeah i think matty has nailed it on the head really, are the other options as good?

    simple honest answer is no, for me
    im in for badcubes, but if fanstoys announced a reissue or somebody else was gonna do these with the year i'd hold off, but for now badcubes will do, would i change set after buying them it depends on price and quality

    I had this set and eventually sold them because I needed the money.

    I was bummed, but gave MMC's a go at $99 and actually enjoy that set way more. If nothing else they're better engineered and just more fun. I tthink they look great too, personally.

    If you want FT to release anything, all you need to do is make up a 3P company name and announce that you're going to release a take on something they've already done and.....

    !!!VOILA!!!!

    Instant Fanstoys re-release!

    My new Bombshell arrived 2 days ago, and it looks great. Can someone tell me exactly what are the changes of this version "T" compared to the original?
    Thanks!!!

    The T version stood for Toy so it has the purple chest instead of grey … it’s the version I went with, but I did the clear chest pieces.

    Bombshell has mold changes.
    Shrapnell has some changes in coloring.

    Don't know anything about the last one yet.

    They don't have faceplates for Grenadier or Mercenary. Forager has one built into his head

    I haven't heard about the other two, but on Bombshell there is an extra tab to lock/unlock the yellow circles on the sides of his torso which rotate 90 degrees during transformation. On the original they were just friction and a bit of a pain to rotate. On the reissue they appear to rotate freely when the tab is unlocked.
