    I have had some problems with FT paint but to be honest without company affiliation and BS narratives you have to say that FT cares and are not just going through the motions when it comes to quality. It extends to materials, paint, and build. It is part of their identity. You cannot say that at all with XTB/KFC or Takara because although we know they can hit that mark they repeatedly CHOOSE not to do so at times for ultimately stupid reasons.

    I took the plunge and ordered 2.0 from TFS Express. I chose the second delivery option ($26 7-15 working days), which is pretty much what you get with ShowZ/Bombusbee/Robotoybase/Robot Kingdom.


    Let's see how it goes.

    This is true. Shame they seem to be limited to just ever making the Dinobots, though.

    I don't own a house or a goldfish. Not only did I buy the Kup 2.0 after being burned once already, but like an idiot, I continue to plunge forward with XTB/KFC. All-in on Virtus, all-in on the new off-white Decepticon Horrorcon duo, all-in on the Shocktroopers, Punch/Counterpunch/Omnibots, even tentatively in on the Autobot cassettes, at least until MMC get serious with theirs.

    The only ones I've put my foot firmly down on were the Protectbots, which I quit after being frustrated to the nth degree by Fuzz. It's either GT or MMC for me on those.

    So what’s next for XTB? The off-white Horrorcon re-issues, Jocund or Virtus?

    Where does the toon dead-end fit into the schedule? Think we're already overdue for him per the old retailer info I had.

    Yeah @Grifter Prime seems to be ignoring me in the Eligos thread
