    Hi guys, BestGrey is offering a coupon for 15% off for TFW2005 members for his new website. I'm not affiliated with BestGrey at all, just passing along a good deal for anyone interesed. The pic below is something I made as a fan and customer...it is not from BestGrey. I told him that a discount for tfw2005 members would be appreciated and he actually did it. I hope it helps some of you guys out! :)

    You kind of have to look for the deals...for example, megamaster with coupon is $85. Infinite Transformation IT-01 Megatron is $85. THF Soudwave is around $55 (which I bought along with IT-01). There are some very good values equivalent to ebay flash sales...and of course there are some overpriced items as well.

    The main reason I buy is that it's the fastest shipping I've gotten from anyone, and the customer service is very very good. I would say that ShowZ, Baba, Rubadubspawn and BestGrey are all very honest and trustworthy sellers. They will always help you out when there is an problem too. Hope that helps. :)

    THF Soundwave says $300? Is that in a different currency?

    I went to the site and saw Nazi action figures. Not even exaggerating...here's a $1000 1/6 scale Adolf Hitler figure, complete with art supplies.

    This is weird, right?

    Maybe? 1/6 collectors get a lot of historical figures, though. They'd need the historical villains too. WWII enthusiasts may just want a Hitler to punch.

    It's not that weird in the context that the site carries 1/6 historical figures. I'd have a hard time believing that's being sold for hate purposes when the site also sells figures of MLK.

    Yeah, not saying the site is a hate site or anything like that, and I dig the MLK and Churchill figures...but I could see people like Heath Hitler being all over the Hitler and Himmler figures. I guess it just makes me uncomfortable.

    The one thing that made it weird for me was the art supplies. I've kept thinking about that. I don't think there's any reason to have a sensitive artist Hitler playset.

    By no means am I advocating this figure, but the accessories aren't random: Paintings by Adolf Hitler - Wikipedia

    Definitely not random, no...but oddly humanizing. Maybe it's a good thing to remember that the Nazis were human beings - awful ones, to be sure - but it's very...awkward. Cognitive dissonance, perhaps?

    The only accessory I would want for an Adolf Hitler action figure would be a French maid costume and a large pineapple.

    I know he was a painter, it just seems odd to include that. At least it didn't include a puppy for him to play with.

    Saw on another forum that someone found Trypticon at Ollie’s for 12.99. Said they took photos but I haven’t seen them. Forum is usually pretty legit.

    maybe it's how hitler and nazis are perceived in asia. I read a similar article a while ago.

    Is there a 1/6 Stalin on that site? I'd e curious to see a display of literal hitler vs stalin. Or the 1/6 churchill kicking hitler in the groin while smoking a cigar. I'm not paying for it myself though, i need a trypticon army now
