    So Fanstoys seems to have a fairly devoted following (myself included) their Iron Dibots line was my choice for Dinobots. At the moment I'm unsure if I'll pick up Grinder as I got KO OS Reximus- but who knows maybe I'll flip him when Grinder is released.

    As much as I love Fanstoys releases I wish they did just a little more. That extra tidbit of toy collector pleasing nonsense that really makes an expensive big kid toy pop. For example XTransbots Apollyon comes with that great helmet accessory and shard. Gigapower loads their Gigasaurs up with bonus G1 toy head gear, and extra flame accessories. This is where FT falls flat. They may have nailed it with Stomp's popped eyes- but its a little late for their other releases. My Scoria needs some sort of Flame Breath! I've been looking online and can't find one that will work. As for my wish list

    1. Doubledealer
    2. Astrotrain
    3. Quintessons
    4. Scourge (yes I know its been teased)
    5. Cyclonus (yes I know its been teased)


    What about you?

    I wish they would release their Skyfire already.

    As for Accessoirs... How about them releasing a Pack with Flames for the Dinos? I would buy it in an instant.

    They should make a combiner or citybot, or SkyLyx

    FT is considered by many to be the top dog of the pack, and I would agree.

    That said, wish that they provided...
    -better faces for sever, tesla, spotter. Good job on the willys change, though.
    -g1 toy styled guns for stomp mercenary and spotter
    -gold chrome neck add on for grinder, just to appease the complainers (I love the transparent neck)
    -darker orange gold chrome for scoria, to better match the others

    I absolutely adore all FT products I own and enjoy them more than TT MPs...

    BUT

    1) I wish they would focus on finishing their projects first before announcing the next five. I mean, in all seriousness, when can we expect their Cyclonus to be released? In 2019? 2020? Meanwhile there are still 2 Dibots missing: Stomp hopefully will make it before summer. It will then take almost a whole year until Grinder finally completes the team. :( 

    2) I would appreciate a set of new faces for some figures. I love the faces on Soar and their Insecticons and it looks like Stomp will be outstanding. But Tesla, Sever and Scoria (and maybe Spotter, I do not have him) could definitely be improved. A smiling face for Mercenary would be welcome, too. If they can separately sell a Triceratops head for Scoria, why not a "Heads of Cybertron" set?

    3) Instead of team Galvatron I think they should have chosen Trailbreaker as their next figure after Willis.

    4) Where is Skyfire?

    I own nothing from Fantoys. Nothing they have made so far interests me

    Let's see them make something that isn't Masterpiece as all getout and then we'll do a call on their quality

    I'd like to see them branch out into new territory instead of doing what everyone else is.
    I WOULD like to see them continue to operate at the Masterpiece level. I feel like that's what put them on the map, and that it's what their strength is.

    This is just shooting from the hip, nothing meant as a serious suggestion, but what if they tackled Transformers Prime, or WFC/FOC?

    Elita 1 :D 

    Also Jazz and Skyfire. I don't care about combiners at all.

    More accessories are always nice. I didn't care for the cartoony eyes that Stomp comes with though. They're okay if you want to recreate that one particular scene from the movie, but useless for anything else.

    I wouldn't mind if they did a sub-line for that kind of thing. I would love me some TFP figures.

    Still being made at the Masterpiece level, or do you see FansToys going into CHUG territory for this?

    Would love to see ft tackle a combiner but they would have to speed up their release process as the wait would be too much for all members to be released

    A new (all red) head for Scoria with cartoon-accurate white 'intakes' and a better face sculpt. Throw one in with the next Dibots release.

    Wouldn't mind mentioned new faces for Tesla or Spotter, but these are good enough for me as-is.

    I'd love to see more diverse lines at MP size and quality. We seem to be moving towards that somewhat with GCreation and TransFormMission, and it would be awesome to see FansToys do a subline for that sort of thing! :)

    I would love to see them make the Season 1 Minibots, Jazz, Sunstreaker, Trailbreaker, Skyfire, Ironhide, Ratchet & the Constructicons to finish out the Season 1 cast.

    Yes I know TT has made an Ironhide, but I'm not a fan of it. I bought it, but I think FT could do better.

    Oh and I wouldn't mind a better more toon accurate head/face sculpt for Tesla.

    the tt ironhide just needs a 3rd party upgrade to sort the hips and new face or head

    but saying that would love an ironhide that splits into bot and sled
