    Everyone's favorite Heerotoysmaker has two new WST KO/repros up for auction, colored chrome version of Sunstorm and Starscream.

    And let me say that Starscream is freaking hot. If he drops the price by half I'll get one.

    Ebay:
    I dunno. $50 a piece??? This guy makes cool stuff but it's so shady, his shipping is $10 a piece and he won't combine it.

    I asked him why those ones cost $50 a piece. Is it the chrome effect that costs more? He didn't respond.

    yes, its vacuum-metallized chrome. he'll combine if you aren't buying through Ebay. to buy 7 items from him was like $30 for shipping I think. EMS, but just a touch over what I think it actually would cost to ship, but that's not that bad.

    I've bought multiple items from this seller and have been more than pleased. Yeah, shipping sucks - but where else are you gonna get cool WST like these?

    As for the $50 shipping charge on the chrome seeker auction, that does seem awfully exaggerated.

    Woohoo, I think that's 4 now. :D 

    Crap, I didn't even see that. I figured the shipping would be about $10 like everything else he does. $100 total is insane for those. They are gorgeous and all, but goddamn.

    yeah I have been watching this auction since it appeared and as I thought, no one bid on them. Originally he had chrome starscream by itself for $50 + $10 shipping. Then he had these two, but the shipping was padded to $50.

    I talked to him about how much it would cost to buy outside of ebay but still too high for me and I spend a shit load on this crap.

    $10 for a Starscream
    $1.05 for a can of metalic chrome spraypaint

    Doesn't cost much to make your own. ;) 

    I've got a Thrust-Blitzwing repaint that only cost me $4.75.

    &..buyer..must..spend..another..USD $50..for..shipping??? Is the seller sending the items via UFO?? :inquisiti 

    Talk to some other sellers from HK/China & you can get these items at half (or even lower) of what this nutcase is charging!

    I simply cant justify paying USD $100 in total for K.Os! :thumbdown
