    Same here, alas, and I got the initial release. This is what I get for not moving fast enough, apparently.

    The only other thing I can think of is to ask a place like TFSafari to reach out to Shockwave Lab and see if they'll re-issue the leg fillers. 115 Utopia also made a set of leg fillers but don't look as good (and they're known to have major fit / QC issues with their kits).

    I tried browsing SL's official Taobao site but either get nothing listed when trying to search or get the login prompt. I have failed multiple times trying to get an account before.

    I have some (reversible) solutions that fix most of the flopping issues: Heavy/Scratch: - Various mods (of mods), custom stuff

    It's impossible to get rid of the flop 100% unless the entire waist mechanism is replaced and re-engineered.

    This is holding Dai Atlas in the air horizontally after doing the fixes:

    I've already e-mailed TFSafari about the kits, and they don't expect to get any more in stock anytime soon. I did find them listed on one website, but I'm having difficulties with them. Currently dealing with them through Paypal, and I'll let you know how it all works out.

    I seem to remember it going on a deep discount, but maybe I'm thinking of something else entirely.

    I believe I got it at a slight discount from BBTS after holding out on ordering for a while.
    What was the original price?

    I paid $159.99 for mine from bbts when it first came out.
    Screenshot_2021-09-06-18-03-01.png Checked it's sold-out page and the price was at $179.99.

    BBTS briefly had it on sale a couple times for $124.99 in the summer, and again in November for $119.99 in 2019 during one of their ‘weekly’ anniversary sales.

    I don’t believe it went any lower than that from a U.S. online seller, nor was it ever on clearance?

    I remember also seeing eBay sellers from China selling it for around that price or slightly less early in 2020.

    I was able to get it at the $119.99 price. So stock was abundant enough for them to include it in some sales events, but didn't necessitate an acutal clearance.

    These sets weren't selling that well...At least not from where I am.

    The lowest price which I saw was about USD $75 & that's when I picked up mine.

    I paid full from RK. Though later, in SEAsia, some did surface at a discount. Hence from what I can only speculate, Takara's shift to TTMall releases. They are non refundable but assured sales domestically.

    After backing Star Saber I’m kind of inspired to pick up all of the Autobot/ Maximal and Decepticon/ Predacon leaders. Would y’all say that this is worth tracking down or should I wait for a potential new one (assuming they make it)?

    Thanks in advance : ) : )
