    They came in. Pretty piss poor handling, shipping wise, but I'm not going to chalk that up to a Maketoys issue. Figures weren't harmed, but the box is a mess.

    As for the figures, They are not as finicky as video reviews make them out to be. I'm liking them so far. New desk buddies for awhile.

    Yeah looks like the box got snagged on something like on a conveyor in the shipping process with the way it accordion folded. I got mine from them awhile back and they are a great set especially for that price.

    Love these guys! Recently rearranged my display and these are standing in a way that catches the setting sun light. It really highlights their chests. I'm fan of that transparent green and the detail underneath.

    Fun little decepticon squad to flesh out the MP troops. They look great with the Maketoys seekers.

    I just got my Visualizers set from Maketoys' store, and I LOVE it.

    Question: Do the handheld guns do anything, or store anywhere, in camera mode? Each gun is unique, and one of them has a fairly large hole (hard point?) on either side, which makes me wonder if they combine to become a tripod.

    Not that I've been able to figure out, and I don't think anyone else has. The tripod gimmick is just that it comes with a tripod adapter for a legit camera tripod.

    I ordered mine from Maketoys online store. What kind of shipping times to the US have you guys had who've ordered from their store?

    I recall being surprised by how quickly mine came, but I can't remember how long it was. Maybe 1-2 weeks?

    It was pretty quick for originally coming from China. Maybe 6-7 days.

    Mine arrived today, really quickly after my order processed. I'm happy with them, they look nice and are a great addition to my Decepticon MP's.
