    I hope that’s true. I still wouldn’t bet on anything less than 325 minimum. Finished cost regardless will still be the highest total of the 3 sets; which is fine, just not what some fansboys are insisting. Of course, by the time FT finally releases it, shipping might go back down so who knows. I’m just biting my nails at how on earth they are going to deal with all of that weight.
    One plus side to the FT set over XTB I didn’t mention above: with FT, one finished set can become the toon version AND the toy version (maybe even the rumored IDW version, but I think that was dropped long ago). With XTB you have to buy two different trailers to get both looks. Most of us only care about one look or the other, so that might not be a selling point to many.

    I think he was saying the trailer alone would be RoadKing priced, so it’ll be like the price of RoadKing plus Smokey, so with current prices more like $220+130. I assume whatever he means by increased shipping we’re already paying for in the higher cost of releases lately.

    That seems about right, shipping from Asia is supposed to increase, the longer it takes for final solicitations to go the higher I think the price will be.

    It's not often that I experience a sense of buyers remorse... but I'm definitely experiencing that right now...

    • The shells are unnecessary and actually hinder the articulation of the arms for me.
    • The toy guns, remote and adapters are just clam-shell warmers to me.
    • The blast effects are cool, but I hardly ever use such things. (maybe I can adapt the blast effect for MP-36)
    • That leaves the Motormaster and Menasor faces. As cool as they are, they certainly weren't worth $65 alone.

    Thanks; I agree. Finally got the trailer (actually double dipped on the limb bots to celebrate a raise at work ;)  ), but I kinda didn't see the point in getting this kit.

    I don't "get" the accessory pack. The only thing that might make a little sense are the extra guns for the limb bots, but that really only works for the "Youth" version, which quite frankly they should have included with those instead of tacking them onto the accessory pack. But, I am not buying the pack so it doesn't matter to me in the grand scheme of it all.

    Not while it's still readily in stock everywhere. Otherwise I'll be lucky if I manage to get what I paid for it. There's also the possibility that I might part it out.

    Still undecided.

    Has ToyDojo received their X-Transbots Trailer, yet? I haven’t kept up in a week or two. But I have mine preordered from them.

    I think the US stores are still waiting on their shipments. I haven't heard anything from TCP yet either :(

    They should all be getting them in relatively soon, pending customs.

    Yep. I would not have bothered with the accessory pack if the laser cannons had been packed in with the youth versions of the cars where they belong.

    Yeah, I’m mostly wanted the faces, so it’s definitely not worth $70 to me, but I’m happy to try the shells and blast FX, mine’ll be arriving next week.

    It was all screws if I recall. The inner diecast chest piece removal was the hardest part.

    Same boat. Havent even opened it properly. Feels like XTB have stolen my money.

    And its with this my friends, i confirm I'll no longer purchase any further XTB products. Thier Kup QC issues fully vindicates my decision as its evident there taking the piss out of thier customers.

    I just finished transforming the piece of shit. I say piece of shit because I'm at the end of my rope - the final product looks great but the process is enough to make you cry.

    Xtransbots is the devil.

    It’s a right of passage. Only the bravest can pass the trial and come out the other end to call themselves...warriors. Let the warrior spirit wash over you. Or enjoy a nice glass of scotch. Scotch is good too.
