    Hello...

    So I just won a bid on ebay for a Unicron complete (w/ minicon) for $30 shipped...I was STOKED!!!

    I have been watching bids go too high and missing bids left and right for months now. I wanted to do a repaint of the Unicron similar to the one I saw on Transtopia. After winning the bid I hit my favs links and was shocked to learn site is now down :( 

    The piece I am looking for had a TF the Movie repaint. Specifically, the rounded parts on the side of the lower legs were painted black and speckled with silver paint to resemble stars.

    I really liked this job and wanted to use it as a guide to repaint the one I just got, but I have searched Google and other kit basher sources and have come up with nothing.

    If anyone knows WTF I'm talking about please post a pic here.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    (on a side note, my seller surprised me with a first. They contacted me stating that they overcharged me for shipping and wanted to return the extra $2 overage...I, in turn, told them to keep the $2 as their honesty was payment enough. I have NEVER had anyone from Ebay be honest about shipping cost...NEVER. Usually I see at least a $5 difference from the shipping cost on the bid to the actual postal cost on the package. I guess there is a first for everything!!!)

    I love finding cheap bargains on ebay. I've snagged 2 Unicrons, both missing many pieces, but paid $5.00 + $7 s/h on each one.

    Some seller mispell character names, and some go under the radar. Ebay is an amazing site, there are some many cool secret things being sold every day there, just gotta know where (and when) to look.

    QFT.

    TFMaster essentially willed his properties of Transtopia over to Seibertron.com. We are trying to be respectful to his wishes, while at the same time doing what we can with the things that weren't "willed over" so to speak. :)
