    Hi guys, for those with experience purchasing, how would you rate Robotoy Base overall? In particular:

    1. Honesty selling original TT items as advertised (not KO)

    2. The toy packaging arriving in good condition and adequate measures taken to protect it during shipping

    I've used Robotoy Base (Chimungmung) before for a couple of purchases. You will get the item(s) that are listed in the description so you don't have to fear a bait and switch. The packages I've received have always been packed well and doesn't look like they were kicked down the street. I don't other from RB anymore because of finding other E-tailers that work better for me.

    As some may remember I put up Soundwave for sale about a month ago. First off, huge thank you to everyone for not buying him, because one night I decided to paint those damn golden eyes yellow like my original toy, and now I'm in love with him again!

    I still want a Soundwave+ (I need that huge toon logo on his chest, dark feet, lighter blue, even white instead of silver), but in the meantime I'm going full toy with MP-13.

    This was just hand painted, two coats of Tamiya yellow. Turned out perfect, and better suits the unpainted blue above his mouthplate.

    Not crazy about those bare plastic inner-feet, and hopefully one day I'll get around to painting them. But I much prefer this second Hasbro run for the painted arm-speakers and the darker purple Decepticon logo.

    Soundwave's got some pretty good posability going on, too.

    Was doing some home recording today so naturally Soundwave and co. were my table-top companions

    PSA guys - Sunstreaker's small foldable gun had developed serious stress marks after folding it several times, heck, it might even be broken and it is hold on by friction. The pin used is very tight and continuous play might break it.

    A few more snaps from my review, link is in my sig (I think that's allowed yeah?). Would greatly appreciate a few reads, shares and general feedback on the style. Sunsteaker alt 2.JPG Sunstreaker alt 3.JPG Sunstreaker and Sideswipe 2.JPG

    Wonderful, wonderful toy. A few minor issues with tolerances and clearances but beyond that, I'm immensely pleased. Now only if there were a few more toy-accurate parts which could be swapped out similar to Inferno. Or hell, if only we would see a police deco!!!
