    Okay, adapters to hot wheels and lego stuff is friggin' brilliant. So many people have tons of that, or access to tons of it. The hot wheels tracks alone will allow for an incredible amount of city-building.

    Any chance you will do a shoulder mount for the twopack mirage when it comes out?

    Random question, and probably not even the place to ask, but I checked my mail today and there was a random small bubble mailer there with a small sheet of Decepticon stickers wrapped in cardboard with the word gift written on it, and it had a return address of Mississauga Ontario. Does anyone what this could be? Its definitely not something I ordered. I know Reprolabels is located in Canada but I've never ordered from them before.

    I had the same thing happen earlier this year, but with Autobot stickers, and the return address was in Kingwood, Texas. It was strange, it was in an envelope, and the postage said that it was insured, so whoever sent it spent $3.50 in postage.

    I ordered from Uncle Billy for the first time recently? Maybe that had something to do with it?

    No idea. I had order from Aliexpress, so I had just figured it was from a seller with a U.S. warehouse.

    Does anyone have the Go Better GX-19 gap fillers for Netflix Soundwave in hand? I want to see how good the color matching and tolerance is before I pull the trigger.

    Current listing for the Ratchet feet made by ? group. Has regular and SG versions. Regular version has 1 left at time of this post.

    NEW Foot Sole Upgrade Kit For Siege Earthrise Ratchet/Shattered Glass Ratchet | eBay
    s-l1600.jpg

    I was able to change my order earlier from regular to SG version as I thought there was only 1 version at first.

    I got a message saying the SG feet are going to be sent out in 4 days due to going back to the factory for extra polishing to remove burrs from the edges.

    Damn, those look good. It seems like these ones don't partsform so that's a bonus! Though I am torn whether I should snap this one up or wait for the eventual Nonnef release...

    Zaks! I remember making complex polyhedra with Zaks. That and langolier-looking panel beasts. Good times! If you have little ones at home that enjoy lego and the like, it's a pretty nice set for them to have as there's built-in compatability with lego.

    I got the same message on my order. This is the second shipment I've had in the last couple months from them that has been delayed for QC issues. I ordered the Ironhide 115 set with everyone else, and it still hasn't arrived, for example. I did ask on the Ratchet set if they intended to do a version without painted windows, since there are different styles now, and she said she didn't have any knowledge of it, and that it's a small studio.

    The ratchet feet set could really complete the set with stickers for the rest of the windows

    There were KOs of Shockwave Lab's Jetfire blades on eBay already in a variety of different blade colors, but SL announced a new version in 4 different colors and stopping the old versions.

    SL-81: Preliminary renders. Blades are to be transparent in final version.

    Dunno who makes this set for SS Dino. It's not Tim Heada, though, who is releasing his own blades set.

    Still hoping Go Better Studios would consider doing them. So far their QC is by far thr best.
