    I had a missing part for my Red Alert from wave 3 and they actually surprised me and did expedited shipping from China to me in 3 days...it was the chinese boxes though, so they can ship quickly if they need to...but again these are the US English language packaging.

    Ok, I just opened all the boxes from Vol. 03 and I have to ask, is there an easier way to open the boxes? My fingers are sore and that damn glue is tight.

    Any idea why the Legendary Optimus Prime is coming up so expensive?

    ShowZ says $66.99 shipped. Bombusbee has it for only $29.99, but with $38 shipping! $67 or $68? The mainline figures are $6 or $7 shipped. Why does doubling the size or maybe 4x the parts count cause 10x the price? This is coming up more than the Yolopark AMK Pro Optimus from last month.

    Looks like I'll stick with the smaller Blokees figures if the big ones are this expensive.

    I'm pretty sure that's just the Nemesis Prime kit that came out like last month. You can see the black forearms and teal at the pelvis. Also, a SG Prime would have an Autobot logo instead of the Decepticon one Nemesis has.

    It's already available if you want one, but yeah, the base kit is still my favourite product I've bought from Blokees.
