Price information page

The table in this page was created based on several sources and show price information for FT products, when they were launched. The prices do not reflect any “current” price.

The information is maintained as up-to-date as possible, but you should use the information as guidance only. Fanstoys News and Reviews website is not responsible for your use of the information.

If you have any information that the table is lacking, or think that the information is wrong, please say so in the comments.

Warning: Please don’t be mislead by the prices below into thinking that international prices are marked up from Chinese prices. International prices reflects the need to import products from China (shipping, taxes, etc.) plus the percentage profit the stores have. There’s also some speculation (which I do not have data about) that FT charges international retailers more than they charge Chinese retailers.

Generally speaking, the full range of prices would include the following columns:

– Cost per unit to produce;

– Price solicited to Chinese market;

– PO price Chinese market retail price;

– Price solicited to International market;

– International market PO/retail price;.

However, as I do not have data for all and for design’s sake, only some of them are part of the table.

(Thanks for TFW user Edgecrusher for the reminder and comment)

Usability tip: the table is responsive and can be scrolled horizontally.

Here’s a table of FT releases using ROXXOR data from the post here: https://www.tfw2005.com/boards/threads/fanstoys-release-schedule-past-present.1131336/
