    Looks pretty cool but I wonder how much of that detail is additional paint.
    Also: I hope you can get some poses that aren't so... crotch thrust specific.

    Looks great. Looks like a repaint of Starscream, but it looks great.

    Now if only these were available at retailers that didn't charge an arm and a leg to ship internationally, and I'd be all over them...

    Skywarp should be next. Note that they went for toy colours for the convenience of the colour separation pattern of the runners.

    So black shoulders, not purple.

    After that we should get IDW Megatron and Devastator. The Hound prototype hasn't appeared in a long time.

    I seem to be able to find the furai stuff at cost on ebay. I got Nemesis at 40, and he's a con exclusive

    Dope shit! Thundercracker has always been my favourite of the seeker trio with the powerful blue and silver. This is no disappointment.

    Man I wish this had a buster.
    Oh I see. Ehh I could take or leave black or purple shoulders. I feel like this works better anyway. But yeah hopefully he comes next. And boy that devastator is gonna be great. And I would like to see where hound went.
    Damn that’s pretty good. I may go hunting for some later.

    Best spot is online really. Look on the Gundam websites for the best prices.

    Try USA Gundam store and there are 10% off discount codes out there as well.
    Not sure if they ship to ya but the starting price is good and that discount might help.

    I loved Starscream's and Prime's models from these guys. I will get the rest of the three main seekers and Bumblebee :)

    Oh, interesting, I didn't even think to check eBay. I'll have a look. Cheers.
    Oh, online, definitely, but the best places to shop for Gundam kits in New Zealand tend to be the Japanese stores, and they (for whatever reason) don't seem to be carrying this, unfortunately. Still, it sounds like eBay might be a good option.

    You've looked at Robotkingdom? I think they ship out of Hong Kong.

    Do wish you luck though. They are good kits though you will have to put a little work into them.

    Like as for Tcracker here, I know that the knees are not that color. That is one solid piece. In this case grey. And Skywarp Purple.

    Robot Kingdom's shipping alone is nightmarishly expensive, unfortunately. Bought from them a couple of times years back but it's not really worth it. And good luck unsubscribing from their mailing list...

    Got no problem putting work into them though! Love me some models. Been stockpiling a bunch of small ones for a while, actually, so I'm finally getting around to building them again. Still need to get a D-Style Optimus Prime to go with my Megatron. I really wish that Kotobukiya would continue making those, but I guess they didn't sell well enough...

    How are those btw? Been looking at them and love the look of them. Any paint needed or looks good straight out of the box?

    I wasn't planning on getting Starscream, but I might get Thundercracker; he's still my favorite Seeker, both in terms of characterization and color scheme.

    Though really, given how these things are always posed, I think the redeco we really need is Thrust.

    If you make a Starscream, you are legally contracted to do a Thundercracker and Skywarp.
