I think it's pretty much dried up.
I think only Hanzo from DX9 is still available. Fuuma and Hydra are out of stock everywhere.
Here you go:
Fanstoys FT-28 Hydra
Yeah, as far as I'm concerned, Sixshot is a beastformer with some supplemental modes, like Optimal Optimus.
I still remember it was not well received when it was first release and it was very easy to acquire one, just like Dracula. Saw a few times people dumping it under retail price. But I think it is the same for every FT release.
Eh not anymore. Right now they can release something with with bad QC and horrible transformations and people will still sell it above retail and buy it up quickly. I would honestly be kind of happy to see a release of their flop simply to let the market die down a bit and tell FT to step up their game.
Yeah, I think people, at least myself, are learning from the "mistake" of not picking up some FT releases. Most people will just pick FT products up no matter what and it is extremely hard to change people's mind now, unless FT offers a catastrophic release.
I just don’t bother at this point. The only release I care for is their soundwave. Other than that, I never give into FOMO or scalper prices. Better to not own it at that point.
Hydra is not great by any means, but brand loyalty is really a thing.
I have one I might consider selling. It's been shelf displayed only. His guns were put in his hands, but that's it. I don't transform my figures unless they come in alt-mode or partially transformed in the box.
I like Hydra quite a bit. Overall I find him to be equivalent to Hanzo, which is a very good figure.
He’s fine, I think he looks great and for the cost I got him at on Ali Express it was worth it. I think I only ended up spending 175 CAD for him which is super cheap compared to the 212 CAD I paid for Koot, which probably half his size.
I never did find that pic with the dude with 6 Hydras in the detolf, but there’s a couple other guys that did it in the Facebook group. I guess if I had the space maybe, but he’s only really got 2 or 3 modes worth looking at.
I would like to see this bot reissued with some fixes if applicable.
I just picked up my Hydra for a dusting and noticed that his knees are ridiculously floppy. I can see how the teeth in the ratchet joints seems to have weak springs or something so there is alot of wiggle left and right when it's only supposed to bend forward (like a regular human knee!)
Did anybody else have a similar issue and was there a fix? I know this figures is kinda old now, but just wondering...
Man, there’s a video by Epyk Dyzastur on how to fix the knee, but it doesn’t seem to be on his YouTube channel and only seems to be on the Facebook fans toys group page, I tried saving it or finding it elsewhere but that’s the only place I can find it right now, in the announcements section. Seems like it would work, adding some twisty tie into the knee area. I haven’t tried it yet though.
Which sucks because many of us are not in that group due to issues with the admin Ryan Exum.
@Epykk Dyzastur Do you have a youtube video of this fix or a video of it outside of that private Facebook FT group?
FansToys FT-24 Hydra (knee fix):
I’m not in that group. I post everything on my public profile and Epykk Dyzastur page now.
