    TFSOURCE said upfront Unicron would not ship for free. It says it plain and simple in the description. I do get what you’re saying. I’ve had larger (weight wise) shipments come from them and various other places come for free or $4 (BBTS). That said the Unicron box size was unique and there was no way to break it down into smaller cheaper packages. Shipping companies have limits for discounts when a package exceeds dimensional weight, which Unicron did. But again TFSOURCE was upfront about the shipping not being free.

    Edit: the current markup price of $1,499.99 does ship for free, but comes with heavy no international disclaimers and is definitely padded to cover what shipping will cost anywhere in the US. The original $779 listing is where the “this will not ship free” statement was noted.

    So this is now behind the TFS-Express UK stock, for some reason.

    Cats have what I call their mad half hour where they dart here and there and act like they are being chased. They go nuts then calm down. Been there man lol

    I emailed Hasbro Pulse today asking for at least an ETA on ship date. I’m not having this hanging over my head vis a vis trying to travel and looking for a house sitter to receive these things.

    BBTS unfortunately also collects sales tax, as they're mandated to by law.

    Nice. I just noticed you’ve painted the grey shoulder connector pieces. Beautiful! What type of paint did you use?

    Regarding the screw hole covers, I haven't placed mine yet. For those who have, do they fit in tight and they never come back out again? Or is there a risk of them falling out and being vacuumed up never to be seen again?

    Haha for a second I though you put a sock on the spikes in the pic on the left!!! Space is cold man. The updated paint looks really good. How are your gears handling it?

    This is absolutely true. Another member here used Krylon’s Sunflower the other week but the results were not as well matched as yours. That orange base did the trick. Life is STRANGE. Two slightly off solutions combined to make one perfect solution.

    How did you get coverage for the little gears?

    the gears are perfect, no issues cuz i went real light on them and they still came out nice, the key is just letting it fully dry in between coats so it took hooours but it was worth it

    And still no info for international buyers. I hope they won't cancel my order or ask for outrageous shipping fees.

    I would suggest priming the surface with white or light grey before applying the top coat. That will certainly help balance out the final color.

    I wasn't gonna say anything about the orange since you seemed happy. That said, your second attempt is several orders of magnitude better and it looks really sharp. Nice work.
