FansToys is third party still some consider them ko so i don't know.I've never bought any of there masterpiece tf due to how expensive they areI see a lot of the fans toys dinobots on eBay for reasonable prices...or more reasonable than they have been in the past.
Did they do additional runs? Or are these knock-offs of the knock-offs
Oh damn, there's a Galactus that big? Shit on a cracker. How heavy is he?
I just put together my second detolf and realized I need probably two more, maybe 3 so I can space out the bots more properly. And this is only about 2/3 of my bots, and doesn't include the Titans Metroplex, Titans Devastator and the Legacy Menasor.

... Only time will tell...Some hardcore collectors recommend buying 3 of every figure: One to open, one to keep unopened, and one for trading. You'd need a mansion or a warehouse for all of that!
I know some Transformers collectors that buy 2 of each character, so that they can display them in both robot and vehicle/animal/whatever forms simultaneously. Never seen anybody buy 6 Sixshots to do that though...
I want to love that but not showing your face in YouTube videos is a virtue, not a vice.
You should put that together and paint it like the one in The Rocketeer.I got an old model kit from 1960 at a tag sale last weekend. It was in the free pile. Kinda like the old oil paint style of artwork that was common in illustrations in the 60s and earlier. I used to see stuff from the 1960s like this regularly when I'd go to the local Five and Dime store, or thrift stores or tag sales in the 90s, but these days its rare for me to see anything from the 60s for sale anywhere. That decade's toys/collectibles/junk has long since been scarfed up by collectors or found its way to the dump.
I've got a couple of those SD Gundam ones, they're pretty cool. Got them in a Big Lots of all places over a decade ago.
I bought a Gundam model tool kit from Amazon about a year ago too, mainly for the sprue tree snippers and tiny metal files (a LOT of guns come attached to sprue trees in my military block sets).
Bootleg Transformers Prime: Abominus 5-pack that I got in the mail today and ordered from AliExpress for $15 last month, just because it was cheap and I've never owned this particular version of him. Hun-Gurrr, Blight, Twinstrike, Rippersnapper & Windrazor. They came in plastic bags inside of a small box, no frills. Zero instructions were included, I just figured out the transformations from looking at the listing's photos. The robot/creature forms are so-so, but, decent updated versions of the G1 Terrorcons. The gestalt is kind of a mess, but, the transformation/combining engineering is interesting. The plastic quality is okay, nothing broke, but, some of the joints are too loose. All-in-all, not terrible for the price as long as you have realistic expectations. I give it a B- grade.
