    Yeah. The only thing I like about the toon colors is that the lack of paint seems more practical, and that I wouldn't have to worry about the paint not holding up over time.

    ^Word....

    Mine are on the slow-boat from hzj401. He is always super reliable but the shipping takes forever....

    I'm thinking about moving my Magic Square figure business to someone else but still giving hzj401 my MFT, HS, and Off-band KO business....

    Robo, it sounds like you moved your business elsewhere, away from hzj401, if I recall correctly from past posts in this thread?

    I haven't stopped using hzj completely, as my MFT Sideswipe came from there as will my Red Alert once it arrives, but I'm mainly using Show-Z or Baba now, and my toon Grimlock and Snarl (once he arrives) came from TF-Direct.

    I was thinking baba or netclow, but netclow is slow on shipping too....

    Also, with Magic Square, when you're spending 30-50 per fig, I feel like I need a box. At least for Magic Square, MFT or the others, I can live without the box......

    for those of you who've already bought 24N and/or 25N, can you post pictures of the original retail packaging that it comes in?

    the only pics i've seen show them in blister card packaging (and with them inexplicably switched, with Grimlock being 24N and Snarl being 25N, instead of the other way around)...!

    does anybody know if they've been released in regular boxes, similar to their 21N, 22N, and 23N releases?

    this got my attention. granted that i'm not even aware of who Tarn is (I do read the comics, but selective with the titles), I'm all for this because those guys look bitchin'!

    and I couldn't afford the Tarn statue from Flame Toys. that's another good reason I guess.

    Wow that looks pretty much like the real deal. Too bad the plastic quality might ruin it (my REV is a floppy mess mostly)

    It is. But I already have a scale nicely worked out, and IF doesn't fit in.

    Got an Engineer courtesy of HotConvoy today, he's pretty awesome, and surprisingly close to the kind of build I'd expect from an official HasTak Legends figure.

    As far as season 1 minibots go, that just leaves Gears now...

    I cancelled my Grimlock with HZJ after Show.z got the TE-01 heads. Just so damned slow.

    Does it have MF-20 C on the box or just different box art.

    Ultra Magnus wasn't easy to secure both colours without accidentally buying the same one twice.

    Now the questions is does the silver face suit the generic sweep or Scourge best ? (which one do I army build ?)

    Now I have to find one other than at Sirtoys too.

    He's like a spot the different competition in 3D form. I can see why my eye would slide right past it as nothing new even if someone did post pics.

    EDIT : PS

    I like how the spare gun on MFT's Weirdwolf acts as a gap filler in the legs - that was a feature I liked about their Chromedome too - so nice to see them continue it.
