    Canceled the PO for TFSource’s MakeToys bundle and grabbed DS Skywarp and Thundercracker instead. These are the guys I had originally wanted!

    I’ll get a MP Starscream eventually.

    Still overpaid, should have taken up the advice given in this thread and buy them at Bombusbee...

    I've had these since release and I wouldn't trade them for anything. despite the challenging transformation, they are by far the best Seekers on the market, especially with the add-on kits!!

    This restock is awesome for those that don’t already have them. Sucks I could’ve got the pair $40 cheaper had I known this would happen and waited. Hindsight 20/20 and all that. These bots are worth it though. To anyone debating it, grab them now.

    The difference between them getting equivalent shipping to the US cost me $8 more at BBB than if I had waited to see it in stock at ShowZ, not to mention missing out on a bunch of points.

    If i can get it cheaper somewhere else at the bottom line, I'm down
    A few bucks on every order means one bot extra in a year for the same cost

    Think the entire point was just because it's a couple bucks cheaper for you, don't mean it's cheaper for everyone.

    For example. I bought a 3-4 years worth of SZ premium for halfprice during a past 11-11 sale. Then I also have a perm discount across the site. Then add-on paying with rewards points & there's no way I'd actually save going elsewhere.

    No point doubling down on it's better somewhere else when all our situations are different & the individual price on a bot won't tell the whole story

    I just bought them from Showz after seeing the posts from you guys and tried bombus first and with shipping it turned out to be more for my location than showz

    Agree, shipping to Ireland on bbb makes it about same as show z plus find show z faster. But thats just me.

    I got the KO of MP 52 and its definitely not what I thought it would be like. Its weird, the KO of Skywarp is perfect but Starscream aint :<

    I saved my SW and TC from ShowZ. My Starscream had months waiting for his seekers colleagues! :D

    Which version of the KO did you get? I got the Eagle Toys KO with the screws to tighten the ankles. It's pretty decent on its own. It's missing a pin on one of its fingers though, but it still holds through friction alone.

    I thought about the DS figure, but the transformation scared me away.

    I had issues with both Eagle KOs of MP52 SW and TC: they both had chalky paint, the hands didn't want to stay in, and even though the transformation wasn't bad at all, I couldn't get everything perfectly fitted.

    I have the DS Starscream and I used the Eagle KOs to distinguish the leader and it looked good. However, I've never liked having basically the same figure/repaints, so I sold off the 52s. For this price though, it may be worth a revisit
