    Can someone link me to all the pictures or videos that are available so far? I've seen the first page of this thread, but couldn't find the rest.

    Since we're pointing out mistakes and so forth, let it not be forgotten that MP-07 had the intake covers for his cluster missiles swapped during assembly. Or at least both of mine certainly had this happen.

    I'm going to be picking up my 2nd MP-05 here soon to finish my Megs display. I'm kinda hoping I can find one in decent shape with a good price, I've got a few offers already from TFW members I just don't have the extra cash right now.

    Pre-Ordered Soundwave off BBTS today. Him & Sunstorm are in my orders.
    Im in the UK so I don't kno if this is the cheapest method, but its alot cheaper than what the eBay stores are offering.
    Thinking of canceling sunstorm & picking up Red Alert instead and maybe black rodimus

    Not if Parcelforce see the customs declaration. Robotkingdom might be a bit less candid, but you'd have to pay them upfront.

    And with BBTS they will catch you as they declare full value and cover their box in BBTS tape. Going with Kapow is always the best option for MP's imo, i went with RK for a MP11 and still got caught for customs and parcelforce even tho RK put value as $50 gift, the size of the box seemed to mean i got charged.

    Yep, I don't use BBTS for exactly this reason. Last time I did I wound up paying charges 30% of the cost of the figure. And I had to drive a 20 mile round trip to their nearest depot to pick the damn parcel up :mad

    I have spent plenty of time drooling over the Soundwave pics and I was wondering if this mould could be retooled to do Blaster? It should be a simple repaint but retooling the waist piece, forearms, lower legs and doing a new head would basically be all that is needed

    To get something like his bot mode... Maybe. But it'd be a lot harder to get anything like his alt mode here.

    Really that's very unlikely to happen though. TT is too concerned with anime accuracy in the mp line to go that far afield.


    -ZacWilliam, an all original MP Blaster would be a dream though...

    I'm just about to order from RK and was wondering what value I should ask them to state on the parcel. Any ideas or advice from past experience would be great. I'm in Ireland btw

    Yep, got caught on a MP10 from them as well, same deal $50 gift and £33 something in customs charges. I've stopped using RK because of it, works out cheaper to get them from Kapow and Andy's such an easy guy to deal with if anything goes wrong. RK are great for problems too, but they wanted me to send the whole MP11 back to them just to replace a hip ratchet.

    £33 in custom charges thats horrendous! did rk offer to refund the money for sending mp11 back?


    personally until i get hit with custom charges i will still order from rk as saving at least £15 for example mp12 is $89.67 with shipping which = about £60 and kapow are selling it for £74.99 ....$ 199.78 with shipping for mp soundwave which is approx £130 saving £20 compared to kapows price to me its a no brainer as its a big price difference but still a big gamble really as there is the chance of getting hit by customs

    The Toyspark bloke on ebay might be worth trying. I’ve brought a few things off him and think they all got through C&E without being caught (MP-11 certainly did). He gives pretty good prices when stuff is newly out (£110 delivered for MP-11, for example).

    I second this! Used Toyspark for several MPs. Never had any delivery issues (Royal Mail, no customs etc) and he packs stuff really well with nice thick boards of polysytrene all round the box.

    Used Toyspark for my MP-11 Amazing service,best packaging method I've seen, box arrived C10 like I wanted. tbf I'll probably just buy off him again. I'll message him later and ask If he will be carrying the Amazon JP exclusive versions.
