Har. If I'm a lord there are some serfs in serious trouble. Thanks for all your help. PM'd!
ALL of the Waruder stuff is awesome! Perfect foil for our Diaclone heroes!
Yep (as OCProwl already stated), and that has me worried. If they were going to do Big Powered or Battle Buffalo would we have seen some inkling by now? I could be wrong, and I hope I am, but are these bigger bots too large and complex for them to KO economically? They seem to be doing pretty well knocking out these little Diaclone and Transformers. Perhaps that's where the money is for them.
I would love for them to do these larger bots but how long do we wait? Takara could move on, stop producing these bots, and the secondary market could skyrocket - putting these toys even farther out of our reach. If MFT is going to KO these I'd love for them to strike sooner than later while the iron is still hot.
Hi, so i caved and ordered some Lost Planet Gamma suits via Taobao. This is the first time i'm getting a notification in the shipping tracking, where the parcel was rejected at the warehouse due to "Embargoed Goods". I have initiated a refund and waiting for seller's response.
Anyone got the same experience on taobao and have any advise if i should try again with another seller, or perhaps appoint a taobao agent instead?
I assume this is because whoever is inspecting the stuff at the warehouse deemed these items as KOs and they were rejected.
It might be a better plan to buy the full set and sell Springer on - as otherwise you'd be missing the mech's shoulder guns which HZJ401 has decided belong to Springer for some reason.
I hear you, but it's soooo not worth the hassle to me for just those little guns.
Understandable ; I just thought it worth a mention.
You can join this thread for future taobao discussion Buying Transformers on Taobao
As for why it's rejected, it could be because the listing title (thus shipping label) has the words "KO" or even some form of "Transformer" (变形金刚) in it. Try using another listing that doesn't have these triggerwords. You could also use a 3rd party forwarder/agent but note that it'll be more expensive than the official service.
Thanks for the link to the thread. I'll ask around there.
Just wondering if people get not-diaclone stuff easily in taobao. I wasn't really expecting any trouble like this. >.<

Sorry @OCProwl I posted this reply over in the other thread without thinking. It probably belongs over here. I think your summary will be super useful to a lot of collectors.
I received my GFL-01 last week. Super cool mech. Great colors and design. I also appreciate that MFT thew in the extra shoulder guns and hand gun that Takara didn't give their release - but there's a catch. I think there might be a reason, other than cheaping out, that Takara didn't add the shoulder guns. Due to the design of the front panel/visor/whatever you want to call it the guns can't go all the way down/forward. The visor is too wide on the sides and blocks the guns. Anyone else notice this "issue" with their GFL-01?
I love these things. So much fun and actually possible to army build with the price point.
I will shake the hand of whoever is brave and smart enough to KO the upcoming Giganter Waruderos.
That bad-ass li'l Roddy comes with a DiaMech *and* the TargetMaster?
I'll let them kiss my sister.
Should be yep, see post below
Had to post a couple of these... More Dia-Nauts(on the way!) and Base accessories will make this a better scene but so far so good:
First I heard of that. It actually looks good in those colors.
If they would KO this then sign me in.
Okay, so I've got a couple of these mechs now (the ones that came with MFT's Springer and Chromedome) and they're pretty cool. One question (probably an old one but I couldn't find the right search words): what's the little piece inside the cockpit that flips up and down? In the up position it blends in with the back wall of the cockpit; in the down position it looks like a shelf or jump seat or something.
