    I would actually be more hyped had I actually put down a preorder for it, but I still think this guy is kinda overpriced, ......

    Oh well, not having a toy is not the end of the world.

    Let’s get the discussion back onto Fans Toys Thomas and not the reviewers. From now on, refrain from discussing the reviewers. It just throws things off course and whether you like them or not, discussing them is just broadening their reach and indirectly advertising them. Talk about the toys, not the reviewer.

    For further clarification, PM @Kickback

    Okay then. I don't like it when they design Transformers with short upper legs. How's that?

    The fact that he's called Thomas was what really caught my attention. Surprised he wasn't named after one of the bullying troublesome engines.

    The mascot sellers on ebay (mascotzone, mascot_home, wolvesbabies) have this guy for pre-order, but marked up the price by 58%.

    Christ. I wonder if they sold the initial pre-orders to each other.

    Looks like they have a total of 55 units available across all their sellers.

    My guess is that they waited til imminent release (supposedly October) to list their stock because they knew pre-orders would sell out from other places. $349 is a crazy asking price though and it sucks that companies are doing this.

    Oh and as far as the short thighs... Isn't that cartoon accurate?

    Not that I'm a fan of that....

    Most people wouldn't get the reference.

    I can only speak for myself. I have heard of Thomas the train; so I recognized the reference, but have no idea who any of the other characters are from that franchise.

    Lucky you. My kid would watch that show whenever she could. Really gets on your nerves after a while. Love the reference though.

    I missed the boat on the pre-order, and have never owned a fanstoys product, so I'm in the dark on their general availability. I've noticed this year their stuff has been selling out rather quickly.

    Has it always been like this? Are they just doing smaller production runs this year?

    He looks fantastic, and is the best looking representation I've seen, but I'm always weary of purchasing something without a review. I'm hopeful they will do multiple runs, but really have no clue based on not really paying attention to fanstoys.

    Does anyone have any insight?

    Spacechoochoo still coming October or did they change the release date?
    Terry told me Smokey is due October.
    I'm still wondering who is coming this month.

    Gee, I wonder why sellers would be motivated to increase the price by 50%. Couldn’t have anything to do with the panic we create.
