    I believe Fanstoys will probably revisit Hoodlum the same way they did with Spindrift.

    I sincerely hope FT does a Rodimus. I'll be first in line for that.

    Hoodlum Articulated Shoulders are available again and now in a more matching colour.

    These are printed in ABS so can withstand transformation perfectly fine, being printed please be mindful they will not be as strong as injection molding.

    These allow the entire arm to be lowered to bring the shoulders down whilst still allowing full articulation and still being able to fully transform.

    For those that had the previous ones. I'm happy work out a way to get these to you at a discounted price so please message me if you want a set.

    Through out early Covid, I had plenty go missing. Shipping seems reliable now so if anyone never received there's please let me know.

    Available through eBay ( simply to help me keep track of orders )

    I don't think so, it has international shipping on the item so should work fine? If not I'll look into it

    Hell yes. I know Rowdy Rodimus Piper wasn't exactly a fan favourite back in the day, but we are way overdue a better version than MP09.

    Ebay:
    Saw a guy selling a supposed pre-order for FT-17 and in the sole photo he had up, it looked like he'd filtered the paint job to look differently. Don't know if that was just a coincidence or if he was trying to make it appear that there was a new version of it that would be available for sale soon.

    Anyhow, I usually avoid any EBay pre-orders anyhow, but I thought it was curious.

    Giving hoodlum that studio series vibe....
    Will have these matrix sparks up on eBay soon. Printed in clear blue resin. For now will only fit the extending MP09 Hasbro matrix

    I am interested in these so I checked your auction out. May I suggest adding one image of the actual replacement parts themselves? I do appreciate the way they seem to work but as a potential buyer, I would like to see "what's under the hood" before buying.

    Love the work you've been doing for FT accessories.
    I think you should put the link to your ebay store somewhere on your profile or signature for easier access to those who want to buy.

    I wish there was a way to fit a Matrix into Hoodlum. Not any Matrix (like Carry), the standard one or KO that fits all the OP, MP-9, both MP Hot Rods and UM.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they do exactly that. In fact I feel that they will do it.

    They need to. He is the worst FT bot ever released imho. A loose floppy paint chipped mess.
