    From pictures the XTB looks better slightly I think. For anyone that has both FT nad this. Is the XTB quality on par with FT? Is it worth the price if they are charging same price as FT?

    My opinion, I paid $128 ish shipped and It feels worth that. Now those paying $160, IDK. He def looks better, or at least to me he does and I have no regrets selling Koot for Locke. Ultimately it'll come down to personal preference and how much you can get him for. He is super heavy, but bbn some of the plastic feels like it could break, but that has more to do with there being tons of small moving parts vs the parts just being crappy materials. Small parts coupled with a demanding transformation can be problematic with some people. Skullface will most certainly break parts if he does a review.

    I bought one, but only after I had a trusted retailer open it up and go through it and make sure it's tight and there's no obvious issues with it. I recommend y'all do likewise, if you've got a relationship with someone you trust.

    I would def double dip on a Koot with the Locke colors though. Rest of Locke just looks off IMO. Hope those that buy it get good results.

    Mine's coming Tuesday, finally shipped it with the trailer because TFS-Express confirmed they won't be receiving any Virtus delivery before CNY. Doesn't mean XTB won't ship any of them, but definitely not to TFS-Express/Omegalock.

    I'll test Locke asap for obvious reasons. The trailer can wait for next weekend when I can devote time to the transformation.

    Was just coming to @ you, because he's just popped up on Omegalock, which means he's in stock and they're shipping him out to the PO folks.

    Fingers crossed for decent QC, eh?

    The added articulation over koot is worth the swap out if you are a bot mode displayer

    I'm really curious to see what's the honest feedback from you guys (I mean collectors outside China, like North America or Europe). Because reading all those negative posts on Baidu just making me thinking: this just can't really be that bad, right?

    BTW, the latest news I read that everyone in that QQ XTB discussion group is muted...:D 
    Way to go, XTB. maybe try that on facebook feedback as well? ;)
