    Picked up MP Artfire from baba for $105 shipped. Bigbad-who? TFS-who? lol.

    Man, you should've seen the flash sale of 1/5/17, right around the time Sovereign first dropped. Folks were making baba burn the midnight oil. I think he sold almost 50 copies that day.

    Them and any non-Ebay retailers.

    Eligos certainly looks the part but given its qc hiccups, lack of premium paint, and cumbersome transformation it isn't worth more than $100 shipped IMO. Baba's deal plus the flash sale discount made the price more reasonable for most. I skipped it still but for other's it is a great deal. Patience pays off in this hobby.

    I kind of want to get a Robot Hero Skywarp (OS KO MP), but I'm only seeing one seller selling it and I've never heard of them. Is wzwu66886 legit or not?

    That same seller has Badcube Sunsurge for like $56 USD shipped. Big red flag IMO.

    Ah thanks, I forgot to check for his other auctions, normally that's the first thing I'd do. I wonder why no one else has one.

    Ultimately went for some Lego - nabbed some architecture sets listed low with free shipping plus the coupon for about 37% off in the end, plus no tax makes it even better. That money totally burned a whole in my pocket, but I spent it pretty well.

    I may have to start transformission revolt. That's a wormhole though. Two years from now there will be an accurate g1 mp version and I'll be kicking myself.

    I may finally get contact shot though

    And to think if you got it from BBTS it would have been about $155 shipped.

    Baba gives an automatic $5 off $125 or more (he gives $5 of $70 for repeat/long time customers) whether there is a flash sale or not. So when there is a flash sale you get $20 off.
