Fair play, X-Transbots


I have never been shy of criticising XTB. While the fandom celebrated releases such as Eligos and even the woeful V2 Ollie, I have often been left bemoaning the poor materials and lackluster execution. And while stuff like Paean showed signs of improvement, it wasn’t until Klaatu that I really thought XTB were finally delivering on the long-promised improvement.


Crackup was decent – especially for the price. And this week I’ve received both Flipout and Savant and I’ve gotta admit, they’re really quite decent. Flipout especially is a remarkably solid bot. We’re still nowhere near the heights Takara and Maketoys can hit, but I’m having more fun with this stuff than anything Fanstoys has put out since Quakewave and the Dinos.
