    Personally I'd pay £32.99-$36.99 for Banzaitron (about $60.00-$70.00) and next to nothing for Galvatron £25.00 maybe.

    I wish they'd clear up where the line about Arms Master Optimus Prime with 5 Microns came from - as it seems completely untrue.

    I wish I could afford that Banzaitron, but that $109 is going to MP Optimus instead. Maybe someday; that deco is awesome...

    We apologize on the Arms Master Optimus Prime. We have fixed our ad on it.
    Thanks for informing us!
    One reason why I like posting it here so you can catch our errors if we ever have any =]

    Seems wrong when a repaint is more expensive - I wonder if it's partly down to it being under manufactured due to it being an obscure character to the Japanese.

    I think Banzai-Tron is quite well liked in the west so it's a shame that the price may put some off. If they could have kept the price down then I'd have bought Sunstorm and Skyquake colours as well quite happily.

    Though an Orange car might look a little odd - perhaps a gold car with orange and white robot parts might be better.

    Did Diatlas get reduced - as I didn't see very many of them in the 1st place to notice if they ever got reduced ?

    Yikes.

    Get 'em while they last, folks.

    As for the toys themselves. B-T is neat but Galvatron is a dissapointement for me. Remember when he wasn't just a Megatron redeco? :I

    No disrespect but, my last order from toyarena was packed with only enough popcorn to cover the top of the product. For the price of imports i would expect a better packing job. Robot kingdom, no matter if you choose ems or air mail they pack your goods with hand cut styrofoam and align inside of the box with it. There all the way in asia and i get my goods not damaged. Toy arena, in the same country and sub standard packaging. Pretty lame. Yes the shipping is more expensive from rk but i know im getting my stuff in tip top shape.

    A lot of times you'll find sellers charging much higher for items on ebay due to fees and a shipping buffer. Nothing surprising there.

    I purchased from them once but never again, it's BBTS or TF Source for me now. They sent me a commemorative figure I needed to complete the collection that was described as MISB, yet the inside of the plastic tray was cut or torn and the figure was at the bottom of the package, not even close to MISB.

    They even refused to pay for shipping the item back on such a blatant mistake, this is why BBTS has gotten my money (and lots of it). Avoid Toy Arena when you can.

    I bought from them and never had any problems. This was a few years back before I was staff on here, FYI. I bought loads of stuff through their Ebay store. Never had a problem.

    The artwork looks great for both the Alternities.

    Banzai-Tron looks more like Lockdown to me though.

    I would have probably bought this if it was as large as Universe Unicron. Don't like the shiny parts though.
