    What's a good reputable store that has Dynastron for cheap? Picked one up years ago from TFDirect for $60 and have had him mostly displayed but now thinking of getting another to use for more play purposes.

    I got mine from ShowZ about 6 months ago for $70 USD. Looks like it's $90 there now.

    Yeah, the silver looks nice there. The gunmetal colour on THF Dynastron is a couple of shades darker (though still metallic), and also comes with the MP+ parts... but no red legs :/

    I don't like the flat white on the G1 toy faceplate (it's a gray on the THF, but still lacks definition). I ended up disassembling the face on mine and hitting it with a blast of silver spray paint. Now it feels a bit more "alive"

    For anyone whose Dynastron came with an orange plug... was it easy to remove? I want to make sure it's not glued in there or something.

    Also, if anyone knows any dealers where it's not out-of-stock, feel free to let me know. He seems sold out everywhere.

    Thanks!

    There is a seller on eBay right now who has 3 more in stock at $105 or so, that’s the best I could find as of now. I ordered one a few days ago and it is yet to arrive. Seller is in Israel (not apparent from the profile but revealed after you pay) but the product is coming from China, so there is probably a cheaper source on Taobao, if you’re able and willing to place an order that way.

    I saw that Israeli/China seller and it made me wary. A shop told me that Dynastron is probably getting a reissue in June, so I think I'll wait to see if it shows up in any non-eBay/non-China sellers then.

    Quick update, just from yesterday. In a nutshell, you were right to be wary. Package was shipped to the wrong address on the opposite coast, and seller basically refused to take any responsibility. When I took it to eBay, he got even more irate and said he wouldn’t deal with me at all. Who knows what even got sent to the wrong address. Guess I’m in the same boat as you are waiting for a reissue now.

    Ebay takes the side of the buyer over the seller, so absolutely make sure you escalate it until you get compensation. Whether the seller likes it or not.

    Yup, that’s exactly what I did. I’m a little annoyed that their system can’t issue immediate refunds in blatant situations like this, but waiting a few days isn’t the worst thing ever. I’ve had my share of run-ins with shady China TF sellers, but I have to admit this version of events was a unique spin on an old story.

    Is the IT-01 painted or is it just a gray plastic?

    As painted as the original but the paint on it is a lot more durable than MP-36's.

    I just rebought THF, and in my memory its far more bright silver, but the one i have in hand is more gunmetal grey (metallic). Did I get a dud, is there a reissue with darker paint or am i simply mistaken? I remember having the original MP36 and seeing THF first time in hand and I was in awe of how nice metalllic silver he was.

    I've had mine since it first released he's always looked gunmetal to me. I know there are some other KO versions that are more metallic. Are you sure your 1st one was THF? Post a pic.

    From my memory, there were a few of them. I think one was chrome, one was gun metal and another is clear.

    I got the clear one

    I think you were after the Magten KO MP-36 version of Megatron. They had the silver ko version. But their gun mode was pretty bad. gaps don't fit.
