    It would be the first time they ever got product before anyone else, but that is indeed the case. Their FB announcement sure made it sound like these were second run, and it looks like you can find 2nd run on eBay now.

    Right. All other retailers still have their 2nd run only available for preorder at the moment.

    I'd really rather order from TCP as I'm not a huge TFSource fan, but after such a long wait I'm a bit nervous about holding out too long.

    Just got mine from uncle billy on ebay. Ordered it from taobao, but there's an issue at the warehouse due to it's size. The phone call over there doesn't seem worth it, so I saved myself the hassle and ordered another.

    So the warehouse felt that it was too small an item to ship out to you by itself? How were you alerted of this?

    That seller, furunshop , is currently on the good seller list on the first post of the thread China Ebay Seller Check but that price seems too good to be true even for a Chinese Ebay seller. Please keep us posted on how the transaction goes. Hopefully the seller hasn't turned scammer.

    $23 is a more realistic Ebay price.

    Received my kits for both Ironhide and Ratchet from TFSource today, and just finished installing them–a quick and painless process.

    As many have already attested, and as should be obvious from any of the video reviews or installation guides that have been posted, these really make a big improvement to Takara's vanette brothers, though I imagine much of that depends on how you felt about them in the first place. I liked them from the get go, even if I was a bit disappointed by the hip kibble, and always felt there was something a bit off about the silhouette of their torsos. Since the Shadow Fisher kits fix both of those issues, I have a whole new appreciation for MP Ironhide and Ratchet.

    I should point out that the red paint on the Ratchet kit's hip pieces do not match the rest of his hip skirt. I know it was reported that the 2nd run of these was going to remedy that, but on mine at least, that isn't the case. While it's certainly noticeable when looking closely at it, it isn't that bad, and not something I find distracting or bothersome.

    I received mine from TFSource and put it on as well. Makes a huge difference and I like Ratchet MUCH more now with these instead of the horrible side skirt pieces. My colors were slightly off, but something you'd never notice unless looking for it.

    Yes, I ordered both SF-MO3 & SF-MO4 back on May 13th and they were shipped out with my POL in the middle of August.

    My Ratchet kit arrived this week and it's a major improvement on the original figure. Looks awesome.

    Takara really should have design the figure like this in the first place.

    I did have to shave inside the loop piece connecting the wheels to the waist, as it was extremely tight, to the point where I thought it was going to snap.

    I bought it from the ebay seller johosontony, and I'm now waiting for the Ironhide kit to arrive.

    I felt it was still a bit tight even when it was just attached to the front waist section's peg.

    Got mine in from TFSource!! They shipped it real quick. I got the kit on and it looks great. I loved Ironhide as a kid but never had the figure. Its hard to believe I'm even looking at such an amazing version of the character. The kit is done so well. The colors are so vibrant.

    I just got my set today from furunshop. I didn’t pay that crazy price though. Paid 23 but it was delivered so you should be good.
