    I'm a poor with a budget, but I pre-ordered from BBTS anyway. At $140, and with all of those accessories, I couldn't pass that up. Since this is BBTS, I can expect to see this in my POL well after Q1 of 2022, so being a poor, their slowness should afford me plenty of cushion time to redeem my recyclable bottles and cans after Christmas.

    and....PO'd. at this price, bring on the black microchange redeco. and give me some sweet toy inspired tampos. or the "magnificus" version.
    link for those that never seen the black microchange version (which is what i had as a kid, was always disappointed in the TF version color scheme back then and no mouthplate in the cartoon)

    New Microman Series - Micro Change MC series

    PLEASE XTB, we know you love redecos!

    Yeah, $10 savings at showz is really not all that great IMO. Went with TCP as I can easily ship something else to get that free shipping and no tax.

    I'm happy with this, and it's less than the FT version.

    Pre-ordered.

    I have both pre-ordered, but for the $100 difference, I may have to cancel my FT order and live with the derpy faces.

    Anyone think FT readjusts their price?

    I wouldn't be surprised if FT panics and starts threatening sellers.

    Depends how many people end up cancelling preorders of Tesla. Doubt there will be that many, and pre orders have sold out so I'd imagine they won't be that worried. Hopefully the reaction from fanstoys is possibly price decreases which is good for everyone.

    I'm always a sucker for the gimmick parts that XTB includes with their figs. At $130USD, I'm in a pre-order until the early reviews come in.

    As far as I know the only time they've been able to get away with that in the past was when Cloud 9 released Quake-whatever which they claimed was a KO.

    This just made my day. I was unable to secure a Tesla 2.0 and now I see this bad boy for under 2/3 the price. I do have one question though......

    What the hell is this supposed to be?

    Mini scaled bots from that episode where they get shrunken down. Think they are the size of Takara human figures.

    You guys are being far too harsh on tiny little figures.

    go ahead and try to paint eyes onto something that's no bigger than your thumb, LOL. the helmet on Bee needs to be higher up on the front, would help it not look so odd.
    I also question how many people will actually use them or if it is simply something for people who won't buy this anyway to latch onto.

    I could easily paint the eyes better on them, but I'm not going to pretend like mass produced figures won't have weird eye placements. And I also won't pretend like everyone who makes fun of them is a HaTeR... Like some...

    I'll use them one way or another, they certainly won't be stashed in the box.

    I've read where some people are talking about using them with their Kingdom Ark, so yea, they aren't completely useless.
