    Those are about 160 RMB each in China. So together would be around 40-50 USD. I bet you wouldn't be able to find such a good deal. BTW, I once got an astrotrain on Alixexpress for 30 USD. That is still the cheapest price I could find.

    I found an astro train for less than $ 30, only I didn't have the money yet and I lost it, I'm looking for Sideswipe and Red Alert from Magic Square (all sold out, bad for me),an Astro Train and Blitzwing of 30-35 dollars maximum, and well a Hoist but I already have that, and also a Rodimus Prime MFT of 40 dollars (but also sold out).

    No. There are currently no sellers offering a buy one get one free promotion on the newer MFT triple changers.

    I do not mean that Blitzwing and astro train together as if it were a free one, but that their price of each is 35 dollars.

    No not yet, the last months focused on getting MS figures now I am finishing up this set end of the month.
    Just got home from work and messed around with it and I really enjoying this.
    Looks great next to the jinbao seekers.


    You are hoping for the impossible.
    I know how it is to be on hard times, hell 7,5 years ago I was homeless.
    Accept how things are, you just have to save a bit longer to get something or accept that you can not get everything you want.
    MS figures, please do not enter there if you already think MFT cost too much.

    Do you find Mechfans Sideswipe too big for your collection?

    @gfhs2003 Dude, I don't see how your latest reply has anything to do with what you quoted from @Dutchy79.

    To me this proofs a feeling I have been having for a long time and that this person is not 100% all there.

    'I am going to classify the following for everyone to understand'.

    If someone starts off like this I know enough by now.
    Will block this person and I am done.
    Ask away about size of what is the cheapest, spill out your fantasy or dreams of what you dream to have.
    I will not read it anymore.

    I had to show ignored content just to see who everyone was replying/talking to. Yep, blocked long ago for extremely low effort posts. I believe it was for constantly asking for pic comparisons in several threads. Trolljob pretty much.

    MS-18C just came in. This is the one they called "Steel Ambition Collector's Edition". Some observations:
    - it comes with the alternate head that is very similar to the head on DX9 Chigurh, but not the G1 toon head. I prefer this head because it's smaller and doesn't rub the shoulder blocks during articulation.
    - the coloration is the same as the standard Iron Sky, instead of the previous special edition which has the alt head.
    - accessories included are two guns and the flight stand adapter.
    - goes perfect with MS Megatron, at least to my eyes, because I always felt he should be a little taller than Megatron.
    - the panels on the sides of the legs can now tab in.
    - all joints have the right amount of tightness and I have tried going to all of his modes, the transformations are easy, intuitive and painless.
    - I have the other MFT triple changers and they're all decent, but if I have to rate them, Blitzwing would take first place, followed by Astrotrain in second and Octane in third place.

    that is not something new. they added that to this mold shortly after the first one was released.

    i had an extra updated one that i was going to keep or swap parts on with my v1. but the purple paint they used was not an exact match. so i said f it and sold the bot.

    but it was a nice little update.

    I can see why, Blitz has some elements in his transformation that make it not fun and possibly more prone to breakage. The other two have smoother transformations. But in bot mode he looks the best out of the three.

    Yeah, unlike most people I received Octane first last month, then Blitz came earlier this week, and I only got Astro yesterday since the shop had an extra unwanted MS-18C lying around. I missed the train with the previous MS-18 releases and almost every review I saw had complaints about it, lol.

    Might as well post the crappy photo I took of the trio last night.

    @lilcarus posted about it a few above yours. It's not really a new development.
