    Skully's a fun character and I might have taken a swing on this despite having no plans for a headmaster collection or season 3 shelf... but not at $240.

    This is cool and all.
    Personally I’m still holding out hope Maketoys will finish the Autobot Headmasters with Brainstorm and Highbrow.
    These FT decepticon guys are neat though.
    Fans Toys always is a solid bet for quality and style.

    Would be interesting if it did. The Japanese did love their swords...

    Well given what TF Source is going with, I will be shocked if there is any difference with the other big e-tailers. Given that Thomas was 229.99 initially, I'm going to PO as soon as I can given that Thomas did not stay at that price, and went up with later PO's.

    Looking at the renders I dont see where else the tail could have disappeared too. I dont think they will make it detachable without it being usable somewhere else

    Damn, I just secured an order with TFSource, but its getting quite expensive. I already have the other two headmasters, I cannot go without chomp, but definetely buy less figures this year.

    Maybe next time try buying from a well known Chinese retailer. At the very least you'll get free shipping and no sales tax.

    Skullcruncher can use darker paints.
    Darker green and darker pink.
    His croctail is a bit to thin.

    The original design looked like it did. No sword pics yet of this version.

    Indeed, I use to order more from Chinese Stores, but since last year and all the "hiccups" in international shipping I decided to order in NA, just for peace of mind. Slowly I have started to place a few orders to test the waters again, so far so good.

    TFS Asking an extra £112...within the next 5 working days, or fully paid 3 year old order is lost.

    I don't have £112, already budgeted for the month and payday is a couple of weeks away. Sake.

    Youre showing me a picture of the robot mode when I specifically said the gator legs look like they arr made out of lego bricks. I said the legs should have been rounded to resemble a real gator to include actual gator claws. (Not robotic doggie paws)

    I know I had this ordered through BBTS but I can't find it in my history.

    Thats the biggest problem with MP. They are taking everything that was horrible about the cartoon drawings and embracing it instead of fixing it. Takara used to be very good at correcting these flaws back when MP-10 and MP-11 came out. Then that looney toon guy took over the line and all the 3rd party companies are following his lead. Sad...
