    +1 on the Reprolabels. I didn't add much - just the stripes and the doors. Gives a great balance to the figure. Haven't had any issues with them peeling, either.

    My recommendation:

    Hang out here awhile. Seems like you’re a fan of the genre, may as well make some friends and build up some trust in the meantime.

    Once you finally have some posts, try selling some lower priced stuff. Let others see your packaging style, communication and how trustworthy you are.

    Once you build up a bit of rep, then put the more expensive stuff up for sale. Or use eBay.

    Trust me. Your FansToys bugs will only increase in value or stay the same. FT has no plans on a reissue, they’re booked to high hell with upcoming releases and with the virus plaguing China, you’ll see an even more backed up and clogged backlog of releases.

    You’re most welcome!

    You’re for sure golden with those bugs. You sure you want to get rid of them?! I couldn’t ever part with mine haha. They’re an older FT release, but to this day no one has ever came close to their “perfection.”

    I’m somewhat of a Marvel fan as well, but are you sure a once $12.99 figure from last year, is worth $150.00+ dollars? To each their own of course — but I was never a fan of the “American made” Marvel figures.

    Have you seen the Amazing Yamaguchi DC and Marvel figures?

    In any event, I wish you well. Welcome to the forum, and enjoy!

    Where is this coming from? Did he mention other figures he wants to sell in some other thread?

    Hm? No he didn’t. But perhaps he does? No idea : )

    Was just a friendly suggestion.

    Edit: he is indeed interested in selling multiple items. Not just the bugs. He could even list those off for sale, before selling $500.00+ items.

    I guess it doesn't matter much. At least to me. I don't think there's any FT figures I'm in the market for. Just thought it was weird that he said he had Downbeat for sale and you replied about his Insecticons.

    Haha. I am now just noticing that too!

    He does have a insecticon for sale thread he just made too. Perhaps I replied on the wrong thread xD

    I'd love to have thought it ... But @songrobin did it first. He gave me some pointers before I even started. Not too complicated.. But one needs to be careful

    Buying stuff from others will help you build rep, too. Make a feedback thread and ask people to post in there after transactions.

    This looks like a new listing, but you can see the obvious late tax. It's got a best offer option, so you could get it cheaper, but still...

    Actually, you might be able to knock it down a bit. If it's new, it's likely using the £1 selling fees offer, so the guy's only really suffering PayPal fees.

    So, I was removing some peeling reprolabels from my downbeat and as I was removing one from the faux autobot symbol, the whole piece came off. This piece has always been one of the biggest criticisms of this figure and I had no idea that it was removable. Wondering if this was common knowledge and if anyone has made a homebrew autobot symbol to replace the downbeat placeholder like the ones that someone made for FT Phoenix.
