    I also wouldn't have a problem if rig or tapes were the next release.

    I'll be happy when FT releases something. Preferably before Christmas :D

    Same here. The only thing I like more with this guy is his overall body frame - I wish Janssen was a bit slimmer - and I can't get my Acoustic Wave shipped until the tapes arrive, so I'm selfish like that ;O)

    They're about even for me, but Tesla has far superior facesculpt. I might get a Tesla 2.0 over the cheaper Jansen for that.
    But ultimately I want to wait for a Takara MP of Perceptor. Or more truthfully: A ko of a Takara MP Perceptor.

    So, you value it being a official but you want a ko of the official?

    I’ll wait for Tesla.. not cause I’m a fanboy, but because every time I watch an xtb review the end consensus comes out as
    “…eh”

    FT-09 and FT-27 prove they make mistakes..FT-45 and 46 prove they rectify them.

    Yeah, I have issues with FT, but at the end of the day, I do trust them in a way I can't trust XTB. With FT, there's a chance the transformation will be annoying, but you know the build and finish are gonna be second to none. With XTB, you just have no idea what you're gonna get.

    I do resent that FT is in a place where you basically can't wait for reviews if you want to avoid scalper prices. I'd vastly prefer to wait until we've gotten some reviews of both Tesla 2.0 and the XTB. But we are where we are, so I've got a preorder in for Tesla 2 (and a few other upcoming FTs).

    Oh cool, the Tesla thread got bumped. I wonder what new updates there are about Tesla...

    ...:mad: 

    Eh, Janssen looks nice but my Tesla has been paid off since early this year and besides, Janssen is made by XTB. FT doesn't have a perfect track record and I have my issues with them but I'd bet on them over XTB any day.

    I made a joke. ;) 

    I agree with you, FT is way better than XTB and I won't be canceling my Tesla order for now. I just hope FT feels the pressure and will soon announce Tesla, because of XTB Janssen announcement. If I'm really interested in buying Janssen instead of Tesla, I won't do it until I see or read some reviews.

    Same. I have my tesla preorder, and i just dont trust XTB enough that it wont be a QC mess. too much of a roll of the dice, especially when theres an alternative.

    So I ended up asking about FT-46 and FT-47 in some stores and the answer was this. We may probably get both on the same month (January or February 2022, maybe?).
