    I’ve been using Amazon for most of my 1P buys, but I got SS86 Tiger’lock from Hasbro Pulse.

    Still, of those two, I’d try to avoid TFSource since they’ve gotten hacked just about every two years for like the last 14 years. .^.

    I had the premium membership too for a couple years, and I used to almost exclusively shop with them, but they lost several of my packages in a year so I got fed up. One got sent back to China and they only gave me a half refund, three never showed up and they only refunded me for one of them. Now I only use them if they have something that Bombusbee doesn't have.

    I've always known that third-party companies often collaborate or work under different names, but that link takes it to a whole nother level. That's almost like a conglomerate of multiple companies working together.

    That sucks.

    I've shopped with BBB once and they were much slower than ShowZ, but they seem to treat most people well, as does ShowZ.

    Still, sorry for your experiences.

    They’re both generally good. I think I was unlucky.

    Glad a review came before the figure was in stock, because I know I won't enjoy it with a transformation this complex. Love the look, but not the engineering.

    Transformation looks quite difficult, but I like the look of the figure.

    I suppose if I treat it like an extremely cheap nendroid that transforms the price evens out, but hopefully its easier in hand.

    That level of complexity is about what i expected, judging by the amounts of cuts and visible hinges on the pictures. Seems the same level as weijiang's SD TLK megs, which i actually enjoy. Now i'm more excited for this guy!

    Designer talking about the Magnus transformation:

    Sina Visitor System

    "Second Uncle" meaning Magnus.
