    Everything they have.. Just so affordable...

    Do people really pay slightly under half the price of a Fort Max for an action master?

    And I've got an armada prime and armada overload loose..
    I'm willing to knock off $150 from the MIB Magna Convoy price.. ;)

    I have to say, that picture of Starscream does him no justice. It's terrible.

    What's up with all the bashing against sponsors lately? Their prices are hit and miss. But some good deals can be had on the site.

    I would buy from them but since they're in CA, I don't want to pay the sales tax. Maybe they can hook me up with free shipping? :p

    I should by that Sideswipe and youtube me opening it. That is if I win enough money from Vegas. The density to cost ratio on it is equivalent to gold.

    Starscream looks much better when photographed correctly, and not washed out in brightness and contrast.

    Already paid for mine with TFSource when preorders went up.

    Let's just say...I'm not tempted.

    The price on clear Starscream seems pretty normal, though.

    Ebay:
    Bought Henkei Dirge and Ramjet with combined shipping. The USPS processors screwed up and lost the order but then found it again and expedited the order. It took longer than expected, but the order arrived in excellent shape. Any other orders I place with TT will be insured. I would definitely buy from TT again.

    While that price on AM Sideswipe may seem expensive, that's a heck of a lot cheaper than they've been in the past. That is a pretty hard to find toy, never even released in North America. A few years back a loose one would have gone for more than the $200 that now can get you a sealed one (granted on a far from mint card).

    I think that Magna Convoy set is the one they've had on eBay for awhile.
    It really is a nice set if you like translucent TFs and the price isn't that bad on it.

    Do you mean Brave Max? I don't remember seeing a decent Fort Max for that price any time recently.(?)
