I bought this off of ebay, and it came in today. I cleaned it up, and it looks amazing! The only issue is a SMALL hole in the hose, which I can tape up. It does not have its attachments, however, a friend of mine, Szymon, is going to send me his attachements to one of his Westinghouse Unpluggeds, which will fit the Wildcat, the only difference is the Westinghouse attachements are blue, while the Wildcats would have been silver. I am attaching a few pics. :D

No, although that probably is my dream Fantom, as they are SO rare, I have never seen a collector who has one. I guess it wont hurt to spill the beans, since I just found out I am buying it tomorrow. It is a Fantom Fury Special Edition! :D

Glad you got it and without a broken handle too! Finally! I wish I had the attachments for mine.... the suction is pretty powerful! I'd likely paint them if I got them in the wrong color.... please share pictues when they arrive. Are there any differences between yours and the orange one I have except for color?

I will...

Post pictures when they get here! And im not sure to be honest if there were any other differences, other than color. Maybe different attachments, or something of that nature. Yes, the suction through the hose is really good, even with the small hole in the hose, its really strong! Hey Vacuumfreeeke, im not sure if I have asked you this before, but do you have a facebook? I would love to chat more with you. And invite you to the Fantom Vacuum group on there.

I will send out the attachments out tomorrow because I've been busy and stuff. I attached a picture of it so you know it's not a scam. Also, I'll probably send you a flter too but I have to find a box. Anyway, again, congrats!

Not a problem!

Glad to help! Now I'm waiting for Jimmy from Tennesee to reply to me for what hopefully will be mine! And you can try to spray-paint the attachments a metalic silver to match the vacuum!

I just checked into the spray-paint thing and I don't think it would work becuase it would ruin it anyway.

I wasn't going to do that anyway. Best case scenario, it looks good at first, and the paint chips off and looks awful.

Attachment Color

Aren't the WC attachments the same as the Cyclone XT's? If they are you could always use them, plus the black would probably go better with most WC colors than the Unplugged attachments would.

The Wildcat attachments are different. The Wildcat attachments look exactly like the pic I am uploading. I do not own the pic, its from an online listing for the Wildcat. :)
