    I saw Ramrider's thread and didn't want to derail.

    Anyone know of a good place to get screws...but the teeny tiny ones like in TFs? I've checked lowes/home depot, but found nothing.

    I have my boxes of "extras" I've accumulated but want consistent sizes and lots of each size...

    Try R/C car/airplane screws, they are avalible at most hobby shops and get very tiny.

    I'm in need of tiny screws too, to replace the ones on that unofficial WST Grimlock, i've got Grimmy and Slag so far, both have a horrible flaw, Grimlock's should be fixable by replacing his tail screw with a screw of equal width but longer so it can be held in place by a tiny bolt.
