    I may do the same. The price was already “too” good to be true.

    I understand your worry, but if it makes any difference I also ordered from them and they shipped out the other order I had with them. I think the North American distribution is bad for MPs now, and they're being honest on not getting their stock in. I ordered a Slash TMNT neca figure and it came in fast with priority shipping. The shipping was free too so I am now a new loyal customer. If you can wait I would because I highly doubt they will go under or steal your $70.

    I ordered Smokey from Surethingtoys a few weeks ago so I’ve been wondering the same thing. Do they package well? Cardboard box or just padded envelope? I’m thinking of ordering more stuff from them but I want it to arrive protected.

    My slash tint figure was very well packaged and like I said free shipping was even priority usps mail. That left me impressed. I think the covid19 issue along with slow shipments of MPs to NA are the issue and not surethingstoys

    So, MP-18+ or MP-19+ - who's the better plus release?

    Man I'd say it's a tie, but that's probably not allowed! Otherwise I guess I'd give it to Smokescreen, but just barely...he's got a sliiiight edge in build quality I'd say, and I'm a sucker for that glossy paint. But Bluestreak captures my heart more, since he's an original Ark crew member and I love that color scheme and his face sculpts!

    So what you're saying is you hate Bluestreak. How dare you!

    Excellent, thanks Rich.

    Of all the MP+ updates, Smokescreen was the one I’ve been secretly wishing for the moment I got the original first MP19. I was trying to convince myself the made up livery words didn’t bother me. I ended up pushing Smokescreen all the way to the back of my MP display because I couldn’t stand looking at it. So yeah, I’m slightly OCD like that.
