    Excuse me? “My” fans toys underwear? I only said you could borrow them. I’m still going to want those back.

    Dude don't worry, once Covid is truly over and you guys fly over to Salt Lake City for the inaugural Robot Paradise Fans Cons, the first 100 people will get the super exclusive Fans Toys undies signed by the man himself dalianjj!! My man @Fortynickel does not even have to sign up, I'll set one aside for him.

    See now here were go again with the artificial scarcity bs. Theres no reason you cant make more underwear so everyone can have a pair. I actually need 5 as i need a pair to wear, one to keep misb, one to display the front, one to display the back, and one for any.....accidents. If i can't get as many as i need then why even bother collecting. This is ridiculous.

    Is this the most dysfunctional thread on the board? The discussions range from economics to brand-worship to taints and underwear, while totally skipping over the figure for which the thread was created. Hopefully people aren’t waiting for any newsworthy information.

    If anyone asks, we’re generating buzz.

    I can honestly say i get more entertainment on these boards and this thread in particular than i would on the usual social media. The information is always flowing and its good to get a little silly in between some of the more serious convos from time to time. Plus ft isnt really giving us much to go on other than pics and po's anyway. That said I realized i havent really commented on this figure much. Of course i like it. The knee gap is disconcerting but i can live with it as long as the overall is solid. The tapes look great imo. I get the attraction to mmc and considered them hard until this release. I do wish he were a tad darker blue and just a touch more grey. He gives me thomas smokey and spindrift vibes. Rig and perceptor come off more aerialbot/stunticon looking to me. The more kinda flat paint I think is what does it. To me the price is fine bc 1) i got suckered by tfsource early on and paid 190 for my mp 13 2) my tapes are ko's bc ebay
    3) FAAANSTOOOYS

    That'll teach you! I just dialed I phone number that I knew would have me on hold for a good long while, just to make it appear that I was on a business call, and quietly refresh the A3U page on my cell phone until it went live, then I preordered both within the minute.

    I didn't get a lot of work done, but I at least snagged a set.

    Jokes on me, I had more work to do the next day, that'll teach me to slack off, though it was worth it.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way... The entire point of the boards is to interact and to share information. In an industry notoriously sparse of it and downright secretive most of the time.

    People love to complain about shit-posting, but without it, this place would be noticeably droll.

    This is awesome.

    For those that missed the POs, I will probably have some units available as I had more POs in China than I remembered, but I still need to calculate the price (will be more or less 160 for RP-01 and 95 for RP-01B plus shipping from China).

    Logic doesn't work with fanatics. Fanstoytics or whatever.

    Forgot to put it here, but I just informed that one of my POs for RP-01 is from the first batch (the original POs from a couple of years), so the price will be even cheaper - 820 Yuan/125 USD.

    【Pre-order】Robot Paradise RP-01 Acoustic FT-02 Soundwave Still 20 available. You may have never heard of Heat Toys/Bombusbee before, but most everyone else will probably say they've been good this past 6 months.

    I like the new approach! Potentially saves about 5 further messages. This might need to be a copy/paste thing. Or in everyone's signature (with xxx in place of the company name and time period)!
