    Yeah that’s painted clear plastic vs unpainted opaque plastic. Gets picked up by camera more than the naked eye generally, so shouldn’t be that noticeable in person.

    1) Blackout’s legs aren’t fully extended either, so not a fair comparison
    2) Starscream’s legs are literally never like that, so why does it matter?
    3) Despite the fact that Blackout was probably a little too small in the film, it is still accurate to the scale chart (when Starscream is standing normally)

    So nah, not sad imo

    i know A-E has a cheap price, but I ordered that MPM Bumbleebee Optimus from them and I am still waiting on the order, and am getting pretty nervous knowing their customer service is practically non-existent ...

    To each their own. The two MPMs I have are Starscream and Barricade, and they’re both amazing. A lot of people I think agree that those are the two best ones so far. Based on what we’ve seen from Blackout, I think he’ll become the best; he’s already the best in terms of engineering imo, hopefully the QC is great. We’ll see if my comment ages well or not

    Man, I love that transformation. The whole figure looks solid. Really looking forward to this hitting the market.

    Funny, I don't remember saying that they didn't do stuff like this. I was simply throwing out some positive words for them. I've seen some of their price gouging and it can be quite ridiculous, doesn't change the fact that they've done good by me and that the stuff that I've gotten from them has either matched or been lower than other sites.

    Also, while it is definitely a higher price than it should be, you are comparing a place that has to import the stock to a place that does not. Its not exactly a fair comparison, using a place like TCP would be better in this case since its the same deal with them

    I can guarantee you that shipping them over ain’t costing them over $100 in shipping per figure.

    Funny, I don’t remember typing a single word. And does that other place charge customers the cost of exporting their goods?

    And I never said that either, but fact is they do have to increase the price to make up for stuff like that. Do they overdo it? Definitely. I'll never deny that.

    You didn't have to say anything, your intent and snark behind the post was pretty evident lmao. The Chosen Prime does have an upcharge on stuff, with your first example of OP Leader running from $140 to $160 there. Another reason why that example was flawed too is because later runs of OP Leader have been a lot cheaper. For your second example of MS Overlord, TCP has it for 149.99 currently. So not that much different between two US-based retailers. Toy Dojo, another US-based retailer, also has him for $149.99.


    Like I get it, you guys don't like TFSource. I'm not a fan of their sometimes extreme price gouging, but they've been good to me, as I've explained before. I got the cheapest price on the ThreeZero DLX BB Optimus 2 years and BB Soundwave 1 year ago from them. Same with a few Xtransbots and Mastermind Creations figures this year, some of which were already cheaper than other places and then had a sale on top it it. Hell they were the only place that had MMC Tortor and at a good price. They've helped me when I needed it, both with a payment issue on my end and with replacements.

    Sorry that I have some positive things to say about a store that you two don't like. This is a tad ridiculous since I only had some positive things to say and get chastised for it.
