    Exactly.

    Some one has even gone as far as touting their preference as the superior one because less people like it or have it. You know because we're all sheep and all....

    Is the current $140 pre-order price likely to remain once e-tailers have this in-stock or will it shoot up closer to the $200 of FT Dibots?

    Sorry if this has been covered in this huge thread (don't shoot!), but will Cesium/Caesium (it's spelled differently on every site/store...ha!) be coming with an all-red optional face (cartoon accurate)?

    I was messing with all the FansToys dinos yesterday, marveling at how each new release improved upon the previous, and...then I got to Scoria. I transformed him back to robot for the first time since he originally came out, and I was shocked to see how clunky he feels compared to the other figures in the line. I've kept him in dino mode so long that I forgot he had all that back kibble just loosely hanging there in robot mode. Compared to the other figures in the line, he just feels...loose and not as refined?

    I scoffed at this PerfectFusion thing when it was first announced, but I think I may end up being a Cesium convert after all... I just want that red toon face.

    I'd be more curious if it would be available cheaper if you bought it from the right eBay sellers in China?

    Most likely. That's the route I'm going. If I can catch it on a flash sale or/and with redeemable ebay bucks....even better. With the exception of Willis, Soar, and first run toon Quakwave, all my FansToys purchases have been thru Ebay.

    Even if it's cheaper straight from China, wouldn't the cost of EMS shipping balance it back out?

    For me it's almost always cheaper from China. I look at the total cost including shipping charges if any. It still comes out cheaper. In most cases there's no shipping charge. For instance last month I got FT Weirdwolf for $103 shipped (no coupons, no ebay bucks redemption, no flash sale discount). To get the savings I just have to be willing to wait longer to receive the items, usually 2 weeks for me, instead of 2-10 days that local retailers offer.

    $103 shipped?!?! It definitely pays to be patient, unfortunately I'm not, especially if it's a figure I'm pressed to get like Caesium. Which is why I was wondering if the price will go up after this is in stock, I buy new figs from whoever gets it first in the U.S.

    Yep. The savings makes it worth it for me.

    Definitely not bad for what will almost certainly be an excellent figure. Too bad I can't wait an additional month. :lol

    That's why I made sure I got my must-haves before the CNY holiday.

    Same...The wait time from announcement to release is bad enough...an extra month on top of it, can't do it! Much respect for your patience ChromeMagnus.

    Do you finally have it in hand or is it still en route?:eek: 

    Sovereign is one of those "I can't wait, must have now" figures that I paid $50 in EMS shipping for as soon as it dropped. Obviously somebody like me wasn't going to wait any additional time for a MP Galvatron :lol

    Ebay:
    After FT/PF finally finishes their Dinobot line, I think it might be a good idea to put out an upgrade/completion set with all of the weapons and accessories that weren't included, and maybe some kind of weapons rack to store everything. Also, Paddles....
