    I decided I want them. I messaged rub yesterday afternoon to take advantage of his current awesome bundle price on all 3, just waiting to hear back from him.

    Yeah. I need to see if he'll cut the same deal for just two out of the three (already got one through him).

    Received and paid my invoice for the 3 coneheads, could not pass up Rub's awesome deal. Is it pretty much a given I will need to take apart Dirge and fix his shoulder?

    If those rumored alternate heads/faced don't show up anytime soon I'll just preorder MT Starscream.

    I don't know why someone hasn't made the heads for the main three?

    Not thrilled about having to perform the fix but thankful for the tutorial. Can't wait to get these guys.

    Yeah. I would recommend doing the fix first thing right out of the box before you get distracted and forget. It is very easy and you'll be done in less than 5 minutes. Just follow Bots & Bits' video.

    Go with these Yes Model KO coneheads. You'll be glad you did.
    Check out Rub's deal for all 3 coneheads:

    Haven't seen any pictures of people adding additional paint for the details, adding panel lining or adding any clear coating.....same treatment as Gundam kits. Do these guys not look good if done in the same manner? They have a lot detail opportunities from the looks of it.

    Just wondering? And any examples would be great to see if doing so takes these guys to another level..

    Maybe, maybe not. I got the figures two weeks ago from Show Z, who Rub hooked me up with, and I didn't have the issue with the shoulder.

    Nice, so there is hope. Were you able to tell you didn't have the issue without taking it apart or did you disassemble to be sure?

    From the video, they said you see it gaps and if you moved it, you'd be able to feel the grinding. Didn't experience any of that. Had a smooth time moving the piece.

    Patiently waiting for the Coneheads to arrive but in the meantime...does anyone know where I can get a single MP Seeker Null Ray? Not sure where else to ask, so any guidance is appreciated.

    When I got my Reximus Prime, his gun was missing. I sent a message to Uncle Billy and he contacted the factory, who were able to cast me a replacement. Can you contact your retailer?

    I didn't lose or break one, I just need one for a project so....yeah I guess I could ask any retailer I usually purchase one from. I guess I feel like if it isn't a problem with a figure they sold they may not care as much lol. Not a bad suggestion though. Been looking for junkers on eBay but listings for those parts don't seem to pop-up.

    So I take it that outside of the forthcoming YM Thundercracker/Skywarp reissue, Yes Model is done with seekers?? I haven't heard any news of new ones.
