    Got my first sets: the null rays.

    I gotta say...I'm very impressed by the quality. The painted null rays almost looked like injection molding until I got a close look outside the plastic bags. I ordered one unpainted set, which definitely feels like PLA but still looks very smooth. The print resolution is either super tiny or they did sanding. Regardless, looks great. I need to take a closer look at their other stuff now.

    I have all of the Ironhide/Crosshairs/Ratchet gap gap filler sets, and really like the quality in design and materials.

    I just got a few GX Studio upgrades myself and yeah they are great, I had to take a very close look to even realize they were 3d printed parts. like the poster above said , at first glance they look like injection molding and feels like it too.

    They also go by
    TRANSFORMERS 3D DIY replenish KITS on ebay but they are crazy expensive on ebay

    So I have so far bought all of my sets from TFSAFARI GX Studio

    but new sets appear on ebay first

    and sometimes you have to request the sets to be carried by tfsarafi too.

    Anyways, they have a new Wheeljack set that has appeared on ebay in the last couple of days, I already bought the noneff set but am seriously thinking of replacing it with the new wheeljack one done by gx studios. The quality is great and I like how the spoiler is still on the back but folds out to a nice wing mode in Bot mode. With noneff you either have to keep both on with one blocking the back and thus parts forming or have a clear spoiler all the time. With the gx one there is just one spoiler and the extensions fold out.

    ITs quite nice

    here is a current link

    Did you get them off eBay or TFSafari?

    I'm very tempted by the Wheeljack kit, that spoiler/wings solution seems so simple you wonder why it's not on the figure out of the box!

    I picked up the Siege Impactor set

    Very impressed. Quite ALOT of fillers, and they all fit well

    The cannon is a big improvement

    They go by Go Happy now.

    The Grapple kit is awesome. Had a few gap filler pieces that were a little loose. I put hobby masking tape on the inner parts and now they're staying in place.

    Ordered the OP back filler kit (regular and AUOP versions) from TFSafari. Haven't received them yet.

    Do you own Siege Skywarp as well? How well do the upgrade null rays match his color?

    Can the GX-03 upgrades fit into Power of the Primes Starscream?
