    I want some MP Coneheads in my collection. But I don't like the TT official ones. So I'm trying to decide between the Yes Model Coneheads or the ones made by ToyWorld. The ToyWorld ones are a bit larger, but they don't seem to look too out of place compared to the MP-11's despite that, do they? My thinking is that they are a different set of jets, so if the size difference isn't too dramatic, they might look okay. What do you guys think? Or shouldI just stick with trying to track down the YM Coneheads instead and have a more consistent look?

    To clear the air on that, I will be getting MakeToys Seekers (already have Howling Meteor). But I am looking to complete my more detailed/realistic side of my MP's. I think Zeta is possibly releasing a detailed Starscream as well, but no word on others. So I won't count them. I just want to round out my MP-11 style (for lack of a better word) collection.

    Hey guys, question. If I can find the official Ramjet from a friend for $105, should I buy the official for this price or go for yes model? I have yes model dirge and he’s awesome but having the official for that price, I’m not sure what to do. Thoughts? It’s MISB

    And let me be clear. I’m not knocking first or third party but different perspectives is something I like to get. Thanks in advance.

    The Yes Model versions are just better quality overall. Plus they come with lots of accessories/weapons configurations that the official doesn't come with. Plus the Yes Model coneheads come with Takara style heads and optional original Yes Model/Toy Mecha heads.

    How bad is the QC for the official? I just figured for the price it might be too good to pass up at $105

    Shit, looks like I held off a bit too long. YM Sunstorm seems to be sold out everywhere. Does anyone have a link for a reputable seller who still has some stock or know of anyone who is selling theirs?

    From ToyBento.... "As Toy Bento is now non-profit, fulfilment time may be long (4-12 weeks), and after sales support is no longer free. Please do not buy if you are not comfortable with this". What the heck? I appreciate the honesty and all, but at the same time, that doesn't really give a buyer confidence.... anyone else know another source?

    Ahh I didn't see baba was sold out. My mistake
    Toy Bento is legit as far as I know. They're even active on Facebook. You can PM them there with any questions before you order. If you're still not comfortable with them then there's BestGrey on Amazon. He's legit as well. I've bought stuff from him. Just know he has only 6 left in stock.
    https://www.amazon.com/Transformers...ie=UTF8&qid=1516586893&sr=8-1&keywords=bb7-02

    Uncle Billy. Also legit:
    BB7 BB7-02 MP Scale Sunstorm,In stock

    Besides all that there's always Taobao which will be cheapest option. If you're familiar with Taobao you can go that route.
    I have an IT (Infinite Transformation) KO MP-36 Megatron coming from this Taobao seller:
    变形玩具金刚 比比奇 BB7-02 KO日版涂装MP11-S 太阳风 SUNSTORM-淘宝网
    Just use the Aliwang chat feature highlighted in the red rectangle to chat with him prior to ordering to confirm if he has your desired quantity in stock.

    Here are other listings on Taobao:

    That's about all the trustworthy sellers I know of that have it MISB.

    Thank you everyone! Ordered. :)  I remember Uncle Billy being reputable, just hadn't bought from him before so I couldn't recall that site. Haven't used TaoBao and don't want to go through a forced registration with Aliwang or whatever it's called using a cell phone number for the sake of chatting. The skeptic in me feels like that's just opening the door for malware attacks to be targeted on my phone, lol.

    I have ALL three of Toyworld's Coneheads. They look AMAZING, and to me, not a bit out of place.

    Glad to hear you're getting one. I had forgotten all about NA retailer Toy Dojo. They're great too.

    For those still looking
    .
    Toy Bento has (1) original release YM Skywarp for $80 shipping. Its just missing the missiles, otherwise complete.
    Contact Ben @ [email protected]

    Note: technically Toy Bento is not taking any new orders at this time. But mention that Kesler mentioned his offer.
    I was inquiring for YM Seekers and happen to mention he had an original release/incomplete Skywarp at hand :)

    Even with no missiles it is still MUCH better quality than the official Takara MP version.
