    Yeah, I'm not down with this one. I still need the regular Phoenix MIB.

    Fanstoys, when are you gonna reissue Phoenix again?

    I'd welcome FT getting the Takara KOing treatment tbh. One releases overpriced stuff, the other doesn't release enough to meet demand.

    馆 can also be translated as “shop”.

    I can justify this being in your collection. As its Phoenix when he was frozen solid in the ice, reason why he looks transparent. :)

    shop / museum... Bottom line is that it's limited to that place.

    I just wanna point out...

    Fans Toys has their own unofficial news site...

    I honestly assumed that "museum" was Google Translate speak for FACTORY. And I of course much like Google Translate is, i've been proven wrong, haha.

    "They" have an Official Facebook group which is not official, so it seemed important to me to make the distinction :p

    No no yeah you're fine, my man, haha.

    It's just... it's like there's no website to talk about all Transformers products around, even rumors about future ones.

    Anyone wanna place bets who's behind the scenes of it? I don't wanna namedrop out of respect but...

    Oh, surely there's a lot, but usually they do not do things the way I want to present them (in fact, I wanted to create something like that because, although I love the discussion here in the TFW forums, the information (as it happens in online forums in general, it's part of their design) is too dispersed. Anyway, I'm making a habit of linking to threads here in all posts (so people can keep the discussions in this forum).

    Also, there's not one that I know that is specific to FT, and as I decided to include only FT products in my collection, it seemed like a good match.

    We need confirmation from the person who refers to the FT rep as "Dali" to confirm any of this is true.

    Interesting take on a clear Jet Fire. I am not into it. But I am sure there are takers out there.

    Well, just to make sure we're on the same page first and foremost, what I meant there was of course a joke as in "We're legit here on TFW. We can do this already on here.", haha.

    I think if anything, not every site covers everything i'd personally in terms of communication. For example, it's been something i've mentioned before, but i'd love to see a Discord server for TFW in some form. Mainly due to the somewhat sizeable overlap of Transformers fans and, say, the gaming scene. Mainly for the sake of more off-topic discussion and having a space to, for one, being able to get on a session of Runescape, Battlefront, whatever the fuck the big game is with the people here, etc, with some fellow TFW members. I would try myself, but I hold back for the sake of not accidentally breaking any rules, mainly since i'm not so sure on an overlap between this and the points under the No Advertising rule, though there is nothing personal in regards to gain or anything from the way I see it.

    Now, anyhoo...

    This. "Frozen Ice Edition" is a subtitle that I will IMMEDIATELY say a resounding YES! to.

    While i'm probably gonna get this LX, considering it's not at an inflated price in comparison to the original retail (or the X, whenever opportunity strikes I suppose.), either the original Phoenix or the X is my main goal, haha. Here's to hoping we get one, and that I can PO at TCP so I can pay over time. That's the best case scenario right there.

    Yeah, I noted the joke, but I also preferred to comment to out my thoughts in context. I surely understand the problem related to the Advertising rule, and although I did ben the rules a little in some recent posting, I will certainly not keep (due to the novelty), I certainly will not keep referring to the website, as it is already in my signature. On the other hand, several of the communities we have (today and in the past) are constrained by the design of the tools they use - Internet forums are an example, a lot of people do not or cannot participate in them, that's why, for example, we have more than 5 thousand members on the FansToys "Official" Facebook group, and not conversation between 5 thousand TF fans here (or anywhere else, and obviously those 5 thousand are not automatically fans). This is not to try to justify any action on my part, but just to acknowledge that there are limits to the types of media we use.

    If a clear Phoenix is what it takes to set us on some chain of events where I get a regular one under $500, I'm all for it.

    This mold is arguably their best, if you have to own 1 Fanstoys figure this is the one. It’s a game changer.

    Even with 3 releases this figure is still in high demand. No wonder even though many say this is not for them, we would all cop it in any version, even just to say you got it or spin it for double on eBay.

    Enjoy the game while it’s this hot!

    I feel Quietus is their best release
