    Just snagged 5 of the silver sets. I'd be more than willing to trade up two of those for black sets. Maybe even three. Let me know if anyone's interested.

    Were any of you guys successful in getting the seller(s) to efficiently combine shipping? $20 seems like a bit too much for one set, but that's just my :2c:

    yeah man, it was like $10 for the first, plus $5 for each additional. not too bad, considering they were coming from halfway around the world.

    p.s., gimme a call sometime ;)

    Same here but he wanted $10 again if you mixed colors (ie 2 gold and 2 silver would be 10+5 for gold and 10+5 for silver) so I just got 3 golds.

    that was just because they came from two different auctions. I emailed him the question and he just told me to take $5 off in the "adjustments" column.

    That happened with me as well. I bought 5 packs of black and 1 pack of silver, and even though he sent me one invoice including all items, he tried charging me $10 per first pack of each color. When I asked about it, he said it's because they were separate auctions. After I pointed out that his auctions say "will do combined shipping" and he only sent me one invoice for all the items, he seemed to understand and let me knock $5 off the shipping total. It was a bit frustrating, but thankfully he accomodated. Just wish I didn't have to argue the point first.

    Got my silver set today, would have had them thursday if the asshat mailman had just delivered the package while I was at work instead of making me have to go to the post office to pick it up.

    And they're pretty damn nice. Now I'm just wondering where my black set is, because they were shipped seperately.

    The springs in the launchers will shoot the missiles about a foot and a half in the air straight up(maybe a little more than that), the chrome on the missiles and sword feels nice, like it isn't going to flake off by touching them. The plastic in the launchers seems pretty decent, no defects or messed up edges, and they hold their position at an angle pretty well due to a little notch in their pivot(if I angle them and swing them back and forth they won't fall flat at all).

    The sword is kinda bleh, not why I got them at all. it looks ok from the front, but the back is all hollowed out, still chromed though. Actually has a little bit of weight to it for it's size, and only has one sprue mark along the edge.

    Anybody who gets these sets will not be disappointed.

    The swords do not fit in with the Binaltech aesthetic, but what would the line be without G1 tributes?

    I couldn't be happier with these arming kits. Does anyone know the story with them? They don't seem to be an official Takara/Hasbro product by any means, but the holes on the transformers were obviously put there for these things.

    How ever I have no interest in the swords. I have three of them if any one wants to trade them for a cannon PM me.
