    To be honest Manero is probably my least favourite figure in my Newage collection. He's still pretty good, I just like the others more.

    That seller is as legit as they come. No need to worry at all. They have an Ebay store and their own website store. Excellent service.

    Got my Jazz and Barracade today. Holy shit Jazz is amazing. Like Barracade is a little MP so he's about what I expect (that being really nice!) But jazz is just so cool his transformation particularly the door/leg storage is really, really nice to pull off.

    I wish he had his missile pack but it's like such a small critique that I really don't care. Alt mode and paint are also spot on for both of these tiny dudes.

    defiantly see myself buying more of the autobots thats for sure.

    Anyone know of a place to get the OG Manero (not the Ex, "martini" version? I've been looking for a while, only recently found one on eBay reasonably priced until i factor in postage to Australia plus import charges.

    Really? I think he shines compared to Datsuns as well as cosmos and even the seekers. Personal taste though

    It's his proportions, they are a little off to me. Like I said though I do still like him quite a bit.

    Damn, you had my hopes up there. I think I'd been fooled by that one too.
    The add to cart button is there but if you look at the availability it is out of stock.
    If you add it to your cart, at checkout it says items are not available. Just a poorly designed website.
    Thanks for looking though!

    Could have sworn it was in stock this morning, maybe should have PM’d I’ll keep looking but you can maybe use this listing as well;
    Is there anything like a comprehensive list of e-tailers that sell 3rd party stuff?

    I'm confused, what is the Manero I preordered and just received? a re-release?

    Is this a straight re-release or are there any changes? It would be nice to get an EX paint job with a silver visor and silver hubcaps.

    The re-release has a new box (same background as the old Manero Ex Box, though uses English for text), is packaged in car mode (first release packaged in robot mode), and the grey pieces for abs, shins, and feet on the new release are slightly lighter than the old version (can only see difference side by side). Same paint, fit and finish.

    NA, unlike other 3P legend companies, has no problems re-issuing some of their older stuff and keep them in stock with retailers. similar how they like to release multiple decos to milk the mold. they want to capitalize and make as much money as they can get. :p
