    MMC is my MP Sky Lynx, sized like he was in the comic and/or some of the episodes of the cartoon. ER is going to be my Legends Sky Lynx sized like he was when fighting Predaking in the cartoon.

    Are these guys a known and trusted seller? Also any idea where they're based?

    I was thinking I'd pick up ER Skylynx, but MMC's does look better. Might be worth it. Hmm.

    I've used them multiple times with no problem. I prefer Tfsafari over showz. They're legitimate. They're based in Asia (can't think of where exactly) so pandemic shipping could be a factor. They're trying new international shipping (that seems to be going good) so you should be ok. They keep a link with updated info usually at the top of the homepage.

    Not sure a bigger Skylynx is needed. I'd still check it out though. This one already requires a yardstick to measure him.

    Standin? No, he's just plain a good MP figure. But yes, I suppose if you want him bigger, then yeah, this guy is a good standin until that happens.

    Right. This is certainly my Masterpiece version until we get something better.

    20200627_125758.jpg 20200627_125717.jpg I havent got mine yet, but Ive used this for all my action figures including takara/hasbro figures. I dont really want to potentially ruin inventa by dismantling it, so I'm gonna give it try, loose or not. I just hope the syringe type dispenser will reach into the joint.

    I gave up on all attempts to fix the neck on my Inventa and sent a message to MMC support via their website.
    They responded in a couple of hours and are sending me an entire new neck assembly for $5 plus Shipping.
    Can’t fault that service, given I’ve had him since release and never bothered contacting them about it before.

    Also, is the toyhax reprolabels worth getting for inventa? Im not real big on stickers but he does look plain. Just wondering if $40+ is justifiable on just stickers alone.

    I really like the set for it but I don't think it's worth $40. I would have been perfectly fine paying $25 for it though.
    I bought mine with the stickers already applied and a few are misaligned, would I buy the stickers to align them perfectly? I'm not too sure... I miss when toyhax had those deals.

    Their after sales service is top notch. The neck is my only complaint with this set. Really needed to be ratcheted. Earthrise Skylynx knows this.

    They do look great and the solar panel labels are 3D so you don't lose the texture. At the end of the day, they're still stickers and will peel and/or get dirty edges over time.

    I got mine last year on the Black Friday sale at 50% off, so you might want to wait a few months to see if they do it again. In my opinion, though, the stickers make a big difference.

    Sticker set is absolutely worth it, but granted I got them when Toyhax was still doing regular sales.

    That's probably why they're so expensive (because of the texturing) but yeah, the thought of them peeling off and getting dirty edges over time is another thing to think about.

    For those who applied them..are they hard to align and put on? Any problems with bubbles? And pics please if anyone has them stickered up.

    Necks also seem to vary quite a bit. I’ve had mine since it was first released and the neck still seems fine (with no tightening/modifications.). It still hold his head up as expected, so maybe you won’t have any issues...
