    I don't like this seller too, but for a different reason. If you need to get a replacement part from them, they like to insist on you buying something from them so that they can send you the part together. If not, they will ask for a local shipping fee.

    Unlike other better sellers who can send it to a local address of your choice (i.e. your 3rd party shipper) without having to buy other things from them or pay extra. One seller even can reuse the existing order to send the part to you.

    Oh, is MS-25 (Tracks) released already? It's still in pre-order for Big Head Rabbit.

    I have a good impression of ZW 变形模玩 so far. His prices are on the cheap side. He is my 2nd to-go seller now.

    Not sending notice and not doing replenishment listings is quite normal. :) 

    Personally, I would prefer the seller to reuse the same listing. It allows me to put the item in my cart. When the price changes, I know it has arrived.

    IMO, this is quite fair. Shipping is not free, after all. It's not a big deal if you buy regularly from the same seller.

    (Also, I guess it depends on the price of the item. If the profit margin is high enough, he would absorb the shipping fee.)

    Not disputing your opinion on his prices, but what do you usually buy from him? FT? Legends?

    If he is your 2nd, who is your first? Little Bee? Rabbit?

    I find Rabbit's prices lately not as competitive as before, but his customer service still one of the best. How's his pre-order discounts so far?


    I asked ZW before. Any replacement has a shipping cost if you don't buy something else from them. At that time, I didn't have much else to buy from him because I can get cheaper from others elsewhere. In the end, I chose something cheap and small just so I can get my replacement part, but the packaging he used was so bulky for such a small product, that in the end my shipping fee went up due to his packaging.

    Maybe I'm spoilt by other sellers who do it for free.

    Rabbit gets the manufacturer to ship directly to the customer for replacements, so they don't have to pay for shipping. Local address, of course.

    There was even one time I needed the tracking number from the manufacturer (YesModel) because I was shipping my replacement part to a 3rd Party shipper (ezBuy) who needs a tracking number, Rabbit told me that YesModel usually doesn't give them a tracking number, and offered to get YesModel to ship the part to them instead, and then they send it to me. Even then, they didn't charge shipping, and didn't ask me to buy something else.

    Rabbit will also message you to tell you the replacement part has arrived, unlike some other sellers whom you have to keep chasing.

    That's why if his prices are about the same as others, I'll always buy from him because I know he's reliable.

    You folks are the worst. XDXD

    Too bad he's gonna stick out like a freaking giant, in an MST/NA display, because I think that Tracks looks pretty neat, in the end.

    Huh... I really wasn't expecting it to be 97% the same transformation as Titans Return. Granted, there's some improvements (although those rear frog legs look terrible) but I was really hoping for something different and new.

    Spot on. Overall design 100% from the Titan's Return line instead of the UT, and I'm ok with that as I didn't find the UT to be vastly better.

    My main gripe with VS-05 is the alt mode's hind legs. They look like something pulled straight from their diaclone mechs and pasted on this guy.

    Is that all the Autobots so far?

    Is there an exhaustive MFT list of released bots?

    Technically that's a mix of hot soldiers (ratchet, ironhide, cliffjumper, hubcap) with the iron trans datsun bros (prowl, smokescreen, silverstreak) and a jinbao optimus thrown in. But even then it's missing all the new release headmasters and omega supreme, plus if you're just looking at what also fits into an MFT collection you can give honorable mention to dx9 arcee and papa toys hot rod.. there's a master list of most 3p legends at the 1st page here: 3rd Party Legends Master Thread

    So are these micromasters gobots thing a dead thing. I was really interested in these and the potential repaint and remolds to represent the remaining members of the micromaster Patrols Hasbro did. Was hoping they would do all the zone ones that did not get a new toy

    While those were neat for what they were, we needed real legends sized gobots. Though Bandai is pretty tight on IP theft these days.
