    As you're all aware, the 1st OP Hasbro version comes w/ short smokestacks. Where do you guys get upgraded long ones? I purchased a pair on eBay from a seller in Hong Kong and just received them today but they're pretty crummy. Made of plastic and the chrome paint is already chipping, pretty disappointed. Any recommendations?

    I got mine a long, long time ago at TFcon. They've held up pretty well, but I have no idea where you'd get a good set nowadays.

    Got my replacements from agesthreeandup.com almost right after the thing came out. They're awesome - chrome and metal. They're long sold out, though.

    I also got mine from agesthreeandup.com, but like he said they are sold out now. That's the bad thing about after market, they don't make to many runs after the initial offering. Been looking around for a decent TFC Gear of War 005, but sadly no luck.
