    From what I read on Baidu forum, the company made this is gone probably due to the Covid 19 economy crisis, some Chinese collectors complain there is no support for product issue, sent the company messages without any reply. Not sure if it's true.
    (I didn't buy this Optimus because I have too many different version of Optimus and kind of make me sick. But if this company make some other characters I will be interested, that's why I pay attention to news related. )

    A quick look suggests that it'd be around AU$3.20 to ship as a letter. Could probably stuff them into a little bit of foam or wrap them in paper towels to keep them safe enough, though there wouldn't be any guarantees.

    Knowing 3D printing as I do, though, I'm reluctant to sell anything I've printed personally. My equipment just isn't good enough in my opinion - I only have a modified Ender-2 and, between the cantilever design, bowden extruder, and POM roller guides, I just don't get enough accuracy and repeatability to be happy with distributing it. Though I have seen what some people are content to charge (excessive) money for when it comes to FDM prints...

    Still, if you don't have a printer and don't know anyone with one (each of the parts I've designed can be printed in under 40 minutes -maybe an hour at higher quality - so you won't tie it up too long), I could probably organise something.

    That could well be some of the worst 3rd party news of the year, if not the decade. Fingers' crossed they're just waiting for the all-clear.

    I'd be quite gutted if they're gone. For a first attempt, Optimus is stellar. I'd love to see what else they could do.

    Received mine today. He really is a masterpiece. Looks outstanding. Great articulation. Very fun transformation. He really just checks all the boxes of what makes a transformer fun.

    Mine just showed up today!

    I'm digging all the big bots I've picked up lately ST Commander, General Grant, Power Baser. Now for TR-02 Cybertron Optimus to drop!

    this thing isn't my thing, but it looks too good so i ordered one...sitting in roller's stash ATM but maybe i should just ship it in case it does have issues? i hope this company isn't gone....if it is i hope they reform somewhere else and keep making toys. from what i can tell without having the thing...everyone seems to like it in hand. my regret is i wish i got it when it was still selling for $130. lol. at $150 it still looks like a bargain!

    I hope they can come back together when the world improves. Their first outing was a great start and it would only love to see them improve from there.

    Really great figure.

    Gun base because every prime should hump his trailer at some point.

    Also, unfortunately my trailer wasnt fully attached out of the box and his left foots paint got chipped on the way. Not much a problem as i am going to play with this figure but still unfortunate.
