    Agreed @Hoffman . I think he also loves the sound of his own voice too.

    The thing here is that in one breath you're saying that there's no way a company would start releasing limb bots before having a working physical prototype, but in the next you're agreeing that not only did XTB do that, but also with the redesign, failed to get it to work in the end anyway.

    Now I get that you hold XTB and FT in very different regards, and that's fair, but FT arent perfect. They released a Hot Rod with a design that mean paint would chip straight out of the box, and they released a Cyclonus that scratched the chest during transformation and didnt address the problems until the repaint/reissue.

    Its not out of the question that they had an amazing CAD design, had full confidence in it and went to work just like XTB did, and now they've run into a problem.

    Bobby and everyone who agrees with him may be wrong, only FT know for sure. But lets not act like its crazy. One company has already made that particular error and FT, like all the others, also make mistakes and get ahead of themselves.

    Although that's kind of a prerequisite of a YouTube personality, isn't it?

    Haha, a few of you look like you’re arguing with an imaginary person.

    Hell I think we can even extend that to everyone else, just look at the reissues and some of the latest releases.

    Insecticons & Huffer - Pushing Badcube back six feet down into the grave

    Springer, Cyclonus & Kup - Pulling out all the stops on XTB

    They obviously wanna come out on top, I mean who doesn't in a market like this?

    No worries, yeah it was XTB with the extra trailer.

    I wanna believe that their Defensor will end up better after what they had to hear because of the trailer fiasco (which I mostly ascribe to because of the accessory pack being separate more than anything else, since it was originally going to be included with the trailer), but with Fuzz being a bit of a trip and fall rather than a clear run for the hills, I say we'll have to wait and see if greener pastures come around. Not to say that Fuzz is bad, but there were some very glaring issues it had, along with a personal nitpick or two. Still excited to check my copy out once I ship it, though.

    Thankfully it isn't much a pain on my wallet...

    *remembers my 2 Quietus', 2 Apaches and 2 sets of Insecticons*

    20210608_100801.gif

    Yeah...

    While I don't do anything on YouTube or (insert similar hobby/profession here), i've contemplated doing so many a time before (and I still kinda do to this day), and I can confirm that I fucking hate listening to my voice LMAO

    (Though that hasn't been my reason of why I haven't, full disclosure, that i'd have to credit moreso to say, privacy concerns, among others)

    I agree, I think he raises some valid points and says things that many people are thinking. You don't always have to agree with every point he makes but that's part of having a conversation. I have a lot of respect for him and enjoy his videos.

    True. The problem lies in that while says the things that many people think, people tend to take that as fact or truth. Which it isn't, unless backed up by evidence.

    That would be the fault of the listener if they take it all as fact. His videos are meant to have the conversation/discussion with the community. It is up to us, the listeners, to continue the conversation and hopefully we find out more information/details.

    Why was FT-20 a mess up? I agree he has some stability issues but he can wobble quite a bit before falling over. you just need a stable surface? Do many people place their figures on unstable surfaces? I once was packing and tried to carry FT Soar by the flight stand. BIG MISTAKE!!! he fell and broke a wing and head. I was able to buy replacement from FTSource to fix him though. Hardly ANY of my takara bots are stable if the base is moved.

    I feel like the problem with the release of the additional limbs are price and weight. Resin is light. What works in cad and resin may not work in full on FT glory due to die cast. Also, FT may have had to retool the combiner pats due to weight. That may mean increased price in factory molds. I also agree that they may be building up monitary resources for these runs.

    If they want money release Jazz.

    Amen!

    When someone uses that button it means they are taking this hobby and robots way too seriously and need to take a step back and ask themselves some serious questions.

    I think it's easier to actually ignore shitposts than to use the ignore function. I mean, someone could post a handful of shitty posts one day, but could come back and actually as something meaningful to a different discussion that you could wind up missing. Case in point, this thread. @Soundwave3k says it looks like we're arguing with an imaginary person, but I don't feel like there's actually been an argument- it's been a pretty civil discussion of whether Bobby's notion that issues with the weight of the bots on the combiner skeletons could be holding up Dead End and the other Aerialbots. And, y'know, if we ultimately don't agree that's fine.
