    Hey there. I own an MP04 Prime and his smokestacks are somewhat on the small side. I know that there exists a set of long smokestacks as I've found a set available on ebay. Click here.
    But what I want to know is are they worth it? Where is it longer? Is the entire thing longer including the base of the stacks where it has all the exhaust holes in place? Or is it just the end piece? If it's just the end piece, can't I just make it longer by adding aluminum tubing over the original ends?
    Are these possibly even better detailed then the original ones?

    Need advice, thanks!

    Yes, assuming they're the right diameter. Although it might alter the tapered effect on the outside of the stacks.

    And thanks for the link. Been meaning to buy a set of these.

    It's the whole thing. Bought it to replace my short stacks on my 20th Prime, looks awesome and is really easy to install.

    Thanks, as cheap as they were, I picked up a set. Now the long wait for delivery starts. :(  :)

    Are you sure you have a MP-04? IMHO my MP-04 is the right hight. My Hasbro 20th Anni DVD is a different story.

    Yes I'm sure I have the MP04. Box, trailer and all.

    I would be cautious if your buying the set. Most sets like this are catered for Hasbro's MP prime to match the Takara Convoy smokestacks. They would probably not make a difference.

    Well it's cheap enough to risk it. And if it's not needed I can always sell it or give it away to somebody in the boards. :) 
    Thanks for the warning though.

    Yeah, those are exact duplicates of the stacks MP-04 already have. They are made to use on the US release of that mold to make it look like MP-04.

    Sorry, I bought the last set.

    I wonder if I can cancel my purchase.

    This.

    I bought a set a year or so ago, exactly the same as MP-04.

    Those sets come and go on ebay. They are plastic and chromed nicely. Really good replacements for the neutered Hasbro version.

    How much were they? I may be able to take them off your hands :)  I just sold my MP-04, but my Hasbro version sure could use un-neutered stacks!

    It was $7 something. If I don't need them they're yours.

    I need longer stacks for my 20th TRU Prime & Magnus. The latest G2 remake of prime stacks are sharp enough to cause some damage so I'm not sure why that passed QC.
