    transrepro.com makes the best. everywhere else makes tjem extremely brittle.

    transrepro is currently out of pins, however. I imagine you could get your own though.

    I learned that the hard way...don't buy those ones off ebay. if you drop it, forget it. Now transrepro's are awesome and color correct. It's worth waiting if you can't track down a pin. good luck

    Just use a small nail for a pin. It's really no big deal.

    I'm still waiting for the stuff i ordered from transrepro back in September or October, and still haven't got it. First delayed because of the pins, then the guys health, but still had nothing. Must say, it's my first order with them and there's a lot more i want but i hate waiting months for my order to be processed.

    Well, Ken is working all by himself, basically. And he just did have another stroke...so...yeah..

    I ordered a couple gunbarrels and a clear blue windshield for my G1 Prime from him. I'll just be glad to get my stuff when i get it. I know Ken'll come through.

    If I remember correctly, the pins can be made easily enough with some modelling/craft wire. I hope to order from him later for some stuff for a project to make an evil wheeljack

    I ordered mine from JDP, its ok but it does seem a little cheap and I snapped the barrel off the base because I installed it upside down. A little glue helped but I did have to sand some excess off where the seem from the mold was and I ended up painting it and the grey parts of the engine so it would all match. It also doesn't seem to fit properly as it kind of hangs down under the car in alt mode (might not be a a manufacturing problem though since I had to glu it back together).

    I currently haven't ordered a second one for Decepticharge yet but I think I'll go with Transrepro as they seem to have a lot of products I'd like, as well as having a lot of experience making thinks like this.

    I ordered mine from Transrepo the beginning of December, and Ken sent me an email that said he did have more pins. So, I'll wait and see (my first time ordering with him too)

    I got a couple off of eBay, one for Windcharger and the other for Decepticharge. They are pretty good quality but do seem a bit brittle.

    I got mine from the ebay guy called gaazon. They look decent enough. Color's slighty off but I didn't think an exact match could be expected. I also got his nifty MP Ultra Magnus gun. He hasn't had any of them up for a long time though.
