    Finally, proof that ducks are just "dicks" but with an "u".

    So someone has else has been blacklisted from sirtoys for complaining about an order with them? Also, several others have said items have arrived damaged, though they still like sirtoys.

    I say items arrived broken and people not named sirtoys on here are butthurt.

    2+2 = 5???

    People do have bad days and do the wrong thing from time to time and i believe Paul did so in this case. Like i had said, maybe he was pissy because i didnt buy a OSKO Warbotron from him.... i had talked to him about possibly buying one (which wasn't in stock btw).

    Perhaps spending 3-4 dollars on another set to send me a 50 cent piece would break sir toys.

    Considering he probably spent 30 cents on those low quality, broken and non functional aerialbots v 3s he sells for 9.99.... one would think he could manage to cough up a 50 cent mixmaster at the very least.

    Once again, im not suggesting TO BUY OR NOT TO BUY from sirtoys, im merely posting my experience is all. Given he posts toys in this very thread, its more than relevant imo.

    Cheers to those interweb e-tuff bois out there. Bless yo heart

    I haven't found that this thread is hostile; far from it, in fact. Usually, it's any thread connected to the main news page articles that have the most hostility. Here? It's been fine.

    As for Sirtoys blacklisting, I've no experience with that, but Paul wrote at his site reasons for blacklisting:

    (Source: - About - SirToys.com)

    In terms of reporting problems, you can try several methods (or all of them) :

    - Searching the Sirtoys website for the contact email address (although he doesn't always read/reply to emails)

    - PM Sirtoys here (check this thread for his posts, then PM him after clicking on his name)

    - Using the problem page, under sirtoys/history/report problem (or something like that). The option to report problems is at the bottom of the "history" page, which is basically his version of "your orders". I use it to report problems, or just share info.

    - Want List. I use this to just keep him informed of the latest KOs, regardless of whether I want them or not.

    Hope this helps.

    Anyone having problems with this thread? It won't show me my last unread page here, only either the first page or an old page I have already read. I used to be able to bookmark the "last page your read of this thread"url for any given page...

    I haven't been able to get that working for me since we moved to the new site format a while back. Now I just have to use the alerts system to stay updated and jump to the latest posts.

    Looks like, without be familiar with that toy, it could be repaired. Second the radicon customiser section...

    Cheers. It USED to work, even recently, but certain threads wouldn't. This one, however, would...

    I think this site needs an overhaul...

    Here are some rough and ready comparisons of the Wei Jiang OSKO Headmasters to the official version. I've also included some other pics from my latest Sirtoys haul. I'm going to repaint these headmasters later to include G1, TR and Reprolabels inspired details. Or you like the fan mode for Brainstorm!

    Also, no, the heads can't be swapped, due to incompatible neck joints...

    Here's another comparison shot. I removed the fin so that the fan-mode can sit flush on the floor in alt mode.

    not sure how long ago you bought it, but I've heard bestgrey is pretty good. He/she may send you replacement parts if you ask. Otherwise Radicons.

    Thanks for the advice!! I've never been let down by Best Grey before... but I noticed that his purchases are now shipped from other sellers like "MORETOYS"... no longer come with extra trinkets from China, and no longer beg for a five star rating.

    Anyhoo... Back to combing through the Radicons pages!!

    Thanks again!!

    Oh I received it in early September but was so busy I didn't get to inspect it, manipulate it until last Friday.

    The good news is, I can put the arm back and it stays pretty well... but I know it's damaged...

    It's... BATTLE DAMAGED SOUNDWAVE!!! IMAG3562.jpg

    Dill a tiny hole in the same spot on both sides of the break. Use a screw that is similar in size to you're drill hole and screw it into one side of the break. Cut the screws head off. Finally screw them together adding superglue when it is almost tight. Hope this helps.
