I'm sure the majority of them will be fine.

Based on what? Takara does not have a good track record with quality control. I consider your blind faith pretty ridiculous.

I do think these figures look good but these clearer shots do show some terrible chest paint. Hope it's isolated.

The orange KO cassette is a custom, "Firewall" - made by Custranz - Custranz custom transformers

Oddly enough, after looking through some old threads, his first post on here at tfw was met with some pretty extensive backlash, simply because he was new and didn't know the correct area to post. Looks like he hasn't bothered posting here since then, and that's why. My favorite is the comment about "like you made these yourself" - great trolling.

I own a handful of his customs, and have nothing but great things to say about his work, and him personally. Quite a treat to see one of his older figures featured with the new MP cassettes, which aside from the chest paint, look awesome.

Sal would probably be 10-12 but you could Private warehouse them and have 2 months of orders saved up

Your levelled reasoning hath no place here!! You should condemn the line in it's entirety based on a test shot 3 months before it is due......have sense man!

I'm fairly certain they do have a good record of quality control. As someone who guys a LOT (and I mean a LOT) of stuff from them, I don't have issues too often.

Looks good.

As for the paint apps - look fine for small toys, and the meanest grasp of how the light is working in these shots will explain why the colour value of Frenzy's chest chrome differs from shot to shot. Hardly anything to get upset over.

Sadly, the default response to so much on these boards is now moaning and negative overreaction; it's rot that seemed to set in around the time of the Bay movies and the return to popularity of TFs, and it's just spread since then. It's a wonder now that people bother to post up anything for some of you miserable lot, frankly.

Cheers.

Oh wow. Didn't know you could do that. It's been a whole since I've ordered from there.
