    Yeah but that is not fair to compare.
    Aliexpress works together with Post nl, so every warehouse sends their items to the transport hub of Ali and I think they have the order just to clear everything for export and let the Dutch sort it at import what is allowed or not :D :D :D :D 
    Show Z has to do it by them self.
    From reading in their topic it seems with the few days holiday and I think a lot of sales, they were just overwhelmed with orders, lot of shipment seems to been slow.
    Sure it will pick up again.

    Incredible display. But I would change the MST Reflector by NA. :)

    How do you tell the difference between the original IF and the PT KO?

    their are a few subtle molding differences on blast off like the lower part of the purple is color matched on the IF set. then you have the centerpiece of onslaught that is a little different.

    but the fastest way to check on which version you are looking at is the look at the combiner knee's.

    a legit IF brutici will have 4 injection sprues in the corners of the knee's. the PT version will not.

    An even easier check: on the PT KO, the shafts of Bruticus's antennae are black whereas they are a very light gun metal on the original IF version.

    oh i never paid much attention to that part. i think one is softer than the other as well.

    but i just stick with my go to spots. that way i never have an issue if i am picking one up on the secondary market.

    over the years i have seen more than a few PT's selling for IF prices with and without hunter Arcee...o_O

    Yeah, there are a bunch of little differences. The antennae always stood out the most to me because it's on the head.

    Are they superior, in your opinion?

    I bought a set from Show.Z the other day and I'm looking forward to receive it and put them all side by side.
    MST Reflectors are among my favorite Legends Decepticons, so I'm quite curious.
    Gotcha. They'll remain in bot mode forever, here, so I'm gonna appreciate the differences in their design.

    No, just different, I thinks NA is more balanced in therms of accuracy in both forms. MST in camera form is strange for me, not clean as usual for being a MST.

    Received the first 2 guys (Backbeat and Collide) in the mail today. As this is my first experience with MS, I was a little underwhelmed at first, but the paint apps are nice and the face sculpts look good!

    to add, blast-off has covers that plug in over the screw holes on the PT KO, while the original IF has no covers. also noticed that IF has certain areas assembled with screws, while PT KOs are almost all pins except for maybe the torso of the individual bots.

    Nice! So I only need Blitzwing, Devastator and a G1 toon Bruticus and I can call it a day. I hope in a few years
