    I don't own both but I own almost every FT and XTB/KFC release. I would have gladly bought Spindrift 2.0 even though I already own Neptune if I thought it was better. It's not. I have watched several videos of Spindrift 2.0 and it is a fine bot that is leaps and bounds better than the original but Neptune just looks better and it is very high quality so I find that irrelevant in this case. Quality issues do matter and I can agree with you on some of XTBs stuff that is just sh1t (Overheat). As to Dunerunner, again I like Arkose with the detailed alt mode but is a bit on the smaller side. I prefer it but I may still look at Dunerunner at some point. Also a very good figure.

    A few birdies and a golden hand and this would've been perfect. Still my favorite of all the MP Beachcombers.

    Anyone have a good recommendation where to buy
    FT Hunk and FT DuneRider together from for the best price?

    Faceboook? Prices kinda suck on those two rn. I know TFSux has Dunerider, but is sold out of hunk(and will let your CC get stolen then lie and say it wasn't them). I know for a fact that Robotoybase has both, but their shipping can get spendy. Both are still gettable in China, and plenty of retailers make a side hustle out of buying off TB and flipping it to stateside consumers.

    I want Dunerider... but not for what they're charging right now. If they reissue it for a reasonable price I'll get it, otherwise I'll just live with XTB Arkose.

    Found a used one for $125 shipped (plus sales tax, bleh) on eBay from a seller in Denver and took the plunge. Arkose and his vastly superior looking but insanely flimsy altmode can go with my "toy MP" group. :)
