    That's just fucking scummy of XTB, but what are you gonna do. They keep pulling this sketchy shit and we keep giving them our hard earned money. This is the worst dealer/addict relationship.

    I typed that all the while knowing I've already invested into their Protector Bots AND their Perceptor. I think I need an intervention...

    Isn't it better that they're including them now? Maybe the production cost has reduced now to where they can include it? Or do you not want those parts included? Sorry, I haven't kept up with the sentiment in this thread. I mostly just pop in to see who's got what newly broken parts and when the toy version is complete.

    yep, Eff-you from the community for not including it at the start & Eff-you from the community for including it now. There's no getting around it.

    Yeah that's some major BS.

    $300 for the original release toon version or $210 for the toy version. B.S.

    Yeah I had the whole combiner, and accessory pack and it just hit me that I didn’t want to deal with it and sold it before putting it together.

    They’ve lowered the prices back to reasonable for the upcoming 2022 stuff but I’m not gonna invest in any XTB combiners, I’ll stick to single characters that can only go so bad.

    Nothing in the accessory kit interests me. I would have been happy if it wasn't included in the youth kit. Now I have to store all that crap.

    And this gun combo is just hot garbage.

    The twin barrel guns are only for car mode, they are not made to be clipped into the hands, gave it a go anyway.

    Also , there is not enough "base mode" pics in this thread...

    ... what a waste of time that is.

    Reminds me of trying to set up my G1 Stunticons on display as a set. It always bugged me I couldn't do this.
    Gotta say, I feel like the chest car doesn't match the rest of the set very well... too blocky?

    Dunno, maybe it looks worse in person, but I like it!

    This is actually the nicest picture I've seen of it. It looks reasonable this way. Well done :D

    Yeah, how dare XTB to listen to the fans and do exactly what the community asked for (include the pieces and lower the price). They should have not listened to the fans so everyone suffers.

    Youth Flipout hit my POL at BBTS. Now I just need the YTH Trailer to hit.

    I think the issue (at least, for me) is that the fans were pretty clear that this should have happened the first time around. I mean, hooray for *finally* listening but it kinda just highlights how they screwed their fans in the first place.

    with how dark the youth trailer came out to be in combined mode, one could get 90% of the look of the set simple with a new head, car chest armor, and some stick on pieces for the shins to emulate that look. if i were an upgrades kit company i'd get right on that.

    I dig the base mode.

    I know I posted a while ago about making a back plate/filler for Monolith. But there was zero interest. How many are interested now?
