    The Cash by Stan Bush

    You got the cash
    You got the moo lah
    When the PO's breaking loose
    You'll be riding the eye of the missus
    You got the loan
    You got the credit
    You know that when things get too tough
    You got the cash!!

    Ugg I wasn't going to order this. All major US retailers sold out. Yay me! Then I was browsing toydojo.com and saw it was still available. I guess I'm in. Crap..

    Yes but only once you have replaced all the sections that don't say, "bankrupt" with sections that do. Maybe a few "lose a turn" sprinkled in.

    Well if this was older fanstoys pricing (less than 150) I was going to get the head, but for 230 I’d rather get the tfc dominator. I love fort max, but not that much

    I think in order to afford this I'll have to become a retailer. That way I'll get wholesale pricing.

    Baba is f**ked!!

    Good call. I will need one for my mib collection.
    There are far more reputable ways to scam ppl out of money than being a retailer. Banker, crack dealer, televangelist....just to name a few.

    I think the expectation now is that there will be a FT-40B and FT-40C from one of the review videos. I definitely think this portends Metroplex as the easiest follow up and then Scorponok and Trypticon. I do think eventually with ones this big they would want to do a Unicron probably based off of some of the Zeta engineering. This keeps a massive interest in the FT brand over the years as they fill in with other releases.

    I’m not in on this but I think this is an amazing project for FT to undertake. I don’t see why any fan would begrudge a humongous figure like this, which should be expected to be expensive.

    Totally agree on price expectation. This isnt about fanstoys. This is a FOUR FOOT TALL TRANSFORMER. It just so happens that the most popular(for whatever reasons) 3p company is making it. I do think they make amazing figures and am all in on this. I want to see this thing in person. Never had any major qc problems with them so to me its worth it to show my support for city bots bc i would love to see them all tbh. I am lucky enough to have the space and (like most) have a working knowledge of how money works so i dont think ill have to cancel holidays or anything silly like that. I get that this isnt going to be for everyone and your comment is refreshing to see over all the usual "it costs too much/i dont like it" types. :)

    So if the robot in question weighs 10lb..and we double its size..that includes mass..we get 20lb..now for fun throw in another 10 lbs for extra parts and plastic since its not just a doubling..we are at 30lb..so maybe 3x the mass or weight..we don know cause we dont have the specs..maybe 4 times the weight/mass if it makes everyine happy we are still only at 40lbs..anyone ever pick up a 100lb dumbell..any idea how much plastic and bits of diecast here and there it would take to get to 100lb..or even 50lb..you all have me confused

    You're forgetting the 18 lbs of diecast in each foot and the 2lbs per finger.
