    Hopefully they release another wave of Mixmaster soon, with the Long Haul pre-orders up, Mixmaster will be the last one I need to get all caught up.

    This is definitely the way to go. Sooo much easier to stand up, and it looks much better.

    So I received the paranoider/bomber set that showz sent me AFTER I asked them to cancel my order. Does anyone wanna buy it off me? I'll charge what I paid at showz ($99.99) plus whatever it costs to ship to you. I am in the USA. PM if interested!

    One thing I’ve learned with these third-party companies is that with a few exceptions, if something sold really well the first time around, then they feel very little incentive to make any improvements on the second batch, regardless of what they say in solicitations. Changing materials or making revisions costs additional money, which is always tight; and the community has taught them time and again that their stuff can crumble into dust and product support can be pretty absentee, but if the character is in demand or the design is attractive, we’ll keep buying.

    Well, surely I bought a lot of goods today :drunk 

    You can always ask there China Ebay Seller Check - New-comers READ FIRST POST!! but for me looks way too good to be true :p  Personally, I don't buy from sellers below ~10k feedback after I witnessed a 5k seller downfall from whom I used to buy a lot of stuff. Overall I think Ebay is the worst place to buy figures - expensive and scammy and many reputable sellers have their own sites already like baba or unclebilly

    Yeah you're probably right. Looks too good to be true for sure. Usually if a figure is that low of a price you realize the shipping is like $80 too but this one even has free shipping... I think I'll just buy from showz.

    Mainly yes, in addition there's a little c-shapped 'clam' from scavenger that attaches to the top section of Split's 'funnel':

    Paranoider and Bomber joining their teammates in their temporary display (Giant Axe is too deep for this cabinet, unfortunately). I guess I need to start thinking about how to display this beast in combined mode when the set is finished. o_O

    Not the Amount of Feedback is Important.
    The Negative Feedbacks within last 6 Month are important.

    This Ebay has a very good Feedback, so I assume it is an Real offer yes. But for this Price....there must be a Downside for this

    Either it is used and already opened,
    or he has high Shipping cost to other Locations.

    Just buy from ShowZ to be sure.

    Do it! I haven't been this excited for transformers since the 2009 ROTF line. All of these (outside of Split) are an absolute blast. And the combined Devastator will be the centerpiece of many movie collections for years to come.

    Was watching a video with Scavenger's transformation and I think I figured out why I like the combiner bits that fold out of the wheels. They felt very movie designish to me and I think what it is is that they remind me of the tentacles that come out and pull the Constructions together.

    When you go, you go HARD :lol  I'm trying to be as strategic as possible on this so as to spend the least amount of money. But it's hard. The LEAST I think someone outside of China can spend on this set is $700...

    Disregarding the announced price increase (since my PO guy haven't changed the prices yet) for Sweeping and Landslip, the whole set will cost me 32,000 PhP or about 635 USD, It's a bit cheaper since 3rd party stuff from china are relatively cheaper here.

    Just got Paranoider and the other one. They are weird little guys but I dig them. They go well alongside the other movie constructicon wrongens of this set. Moreover, I am continually amazed at what this set is going to look like when complete!

    Do we have any further hints as to when the next figure will be released other than "soon"?

    Yeah in asia it’s cheaper for sure. A good chunk of the prices on Showz and all the US-based sites is actually shipping. Places like bombusbee.net and robotkingdom show the actual prices, then charge a fuckton for shipping.

    If you go with tfsource you could be paying over $1000 :p
