    Nope, the problem is domestic availability though. I cannot buy stuff from overseas for some reason too.

    I didn’t own a single one of these guys 4 years ago.

    But today, they’ve flourished into a squad of 20 bots, both male and female, and I’m already very happy with how they look together even if I can’t complete my dream collection.

    Couldn't someone here in the US just buy SS Jolt and ship it internationally to you?

    I do that for someone here on tfw2005 who lives in South Africa for certain Target exclusives that aren't available there. He has a forwarding service in the US that I ship to which then ships internationally to him for a pretty good deal and takes a few weeks

    Thanks for the advice. From what I’ve heard from my parents and friends of parents there are a lot of customs and taxes that make my country uniquely difficult for importing stuff.

    (retook the previous pic I did to pose them in action poses, and because I forgot to include WII Bee)

    PSX_20210917_182559.jpg PSX_20210917_181821.jpg He was on sale at a Chinese store last week, I was able to get him for just about 90usd including shipping (I live in SEA).

    I love the smooth gloss finish that they used to cover the car parts.

    I'm mostly going to try and mold him into liking Star Wars, just like me and some of my other cousins.

    Thanks guys, hope you enjoy the pics as much as I do. There are some new paint apps added as well as glossed the blue a bit.

    Finally finished setting up my TF live-action Studio Series collection! Also managed to find some space for the few G1/BW figures as well. I may need to extend the shelving unit that holds the boxes as the new wave is arriving very soon, but for now, I'm happy with how it's all turned out.

    Man, I can't wait to get a house one day so that I can display all of my figures. Almost all of my SS are NIB and I have no place to display them. I really want to enjoy them- I want one entire room for my collection. Haha

    Ps: I wonder if DNA designs (or someone else) will make an upgrade kit for Jolt. I can see us getting better whips possible but not sure what else...

    They could do another mulit-pack like with Sentinel and Blackout. Have whips for Jolt, a whip and fusion cannon for Megatron, and maybe better weapons for Dino or Thrust.
