    Same thing happened with me. Got the confirmation email but their website is having all kinds of issues.

    If anyone doesn’t want their Starscream head/parts, let me know and I’ll buy them off you!

    I need to go back and look at side by side pics of the original vs the EX … I LOVE this Prime … but does the paint really look that different standing on a shelf? If I bought this reissue, I would probably take my original to work and be on my desk, but do I reaaaaaally need it? :lol

    Do you reaaaaaally need it? Probably not. Do you reaaally need it? Maybe. But really need it? Definitely. Personally, I was very very happy with the upgrade from the original to the Ex. He just looks and feels noticably nicer. It's not just painted vs plastic but painted vs a boring matte plastic with a high degree of light permeability.

    I can't recall who originally posted this photo, but I think it shows the differences quite well.

    I had both in hand at the same for a while. This picture pretty much exactly represents the visual difference between the two in person. The unpainted one has kind of a glowy, soft look to the plastic, like you can see light coming through it. The painted version is much nicer imo

    Well I ordered EX from MST directly despite already having TE Op Leader, who I have always loved and was one of my first MP scale bots.

    FYI, he is listed as being on sale right now for $112 but shipping to the states puts the total around $134.

    That's a pretty textbook MS move. They put it on "sale" so that the shipped price is the same as any other Chinese retailer.

    I pre-ordered from Magic Square 3rd June. Any idea when they'll send out invoices?

    Hey, quick question and search isn't helping. I have ms light of peace, mp 44 and the mp stand that came with the most recent mp starscream. Mp44 prime comes with an adapter for the waist the works for the mp flight stand.

    Light of peace has a similar groove on his backside, but the adapter from 44 doesn't fit. Is there a specific stand that is intended for light of peace? A recommended stand? I see Fantoys has a stand set too. Here's the part of LOP I'm talking about...
