    Yeah, got mine through BBB and haven't had much luck getting responses from them either.

    Thanks, I'll give them a try

    Bombusbee is pretty good with replacement parts, it is Giga that is the trouble. You can try ShowZ as well, but I doubt they will have any more luck getting parts out of Giga. BBB is probably being quiet because they just don't have any response from Giga to share with you.

    Wish you luck finding the parts. You may be stuck trying to super-glue something back together until you see pre-orders open up again for the next round of Swoop.

    Was watching "Desertion of the Dinobots part 2" this afternoon, and was surprised by this...

    Seeing Swoop with a handgun, I had to give Gaudenter one. After thinking about it, I gave him the rifle from Badcube's Steamroll (preferred MP Sideswipe's rifle with him anyway)

    Nothing is hard to tell. They're both chrome versions. The chrome ones have a metallic body and chrome wings. The metallic versions have gloss bodies and metallic wings.

    Is it safe to say you bought that listing?
    I was tempted to bid, but chose to listen to my frugal wallet

    Is "boom" really the best word to use when posing the figure so close to the edge? :D 

    But congrats. Figure looks good. Never went with GP because they're too big, but if they had been smaller than those would've been my perfect MP Dinobots. And Swoop of course has to be red with gold.

    I am happy for you
    Bandai has been bitch slapping my wallet the past few years so I know the drill there.


    The best part, is that it looks like you got it for a decent price too, especially if you sell the blue one. I know you were looking for a red one for a while now.

    If anyone is looking for ankle replacement pieces, I got a friend that helped me and printed a few replacements for me. I have a few extra left, pm me if interested. IMG_4913.jpeg IMG_4914.jpeg IMG_4915.jpeg

    Bullsfire at least is the only true homage to the OG Diaclone. I've always loved the look.

    None of the MP toon versions gets the face right, not even SS86 - unlike the most recent Legends figures. I've always wondered why noone wasn't able to nail that face.

    Yeah, I have. I went through ShowZ and it took about a year but I got a replacement hand for Gigapower Snarl (of course I broke his leg right before the hand showed up.)

    Which Guttur legs parts did you break? I have some spare legs I got from GP directly.

    I believe it snapped where the leg and the hip attach. I'd love to see some photos of what you have.
