If I'm honest, I'd have probably preferred feet fillers instead of the little knee & elbow fillers, and the leg extension parts, but overall, it's worth picking up a set.

    Now, the fact that I've had to buy a £10 filler kit, and had to fix the leg & feet panels on a £17 toy is another topic altogether...

    Hey guys,the soundwave kits are from Tim Heada so it is totally white(not like the grey ironhide kit from Ratchet). You need to do painting by yourself,so this is kinda hard core to some of you guys I guess.

    Tim is the big potato in TF customization field in China so he has his own philosophy. Anyway we would release instructions in English for the installation and the suggested color# for painting ASAP.

    The thigh pieces are snug, if you watched the video (in our facebook page,I think you can also find in this thread.),to take the whole legs off the body first and the then put on or remove the hip parts would be a lot easier and much less risky.

    And some more update. We are bringing a new weapon set for Ironhide,from a low-profile and relatively new studio. See one photo as below.

    Pre-order would open next week I think. Will you guys be interested?

    Was anybody else missing the foot panels? My set came without them.

    Mine didn't come with them either, the site doesn't show them, so I guess they got dropped.

    Now we need a set for Siege Megatron, who has the most egregious of the arm-gaps.

    Depending on the price I’m very interested.
    I would like a few more glamour shots before I make up my mind.

    Payment with PayPal. And for legit or not with PayPal you have 180 days to make a claim if the seller doesn’t provide the goods that you paid for.

    The website is TFSafari.com.

    As @Blackout32 just said, you can pay by PayPal. Super easy.

    As to how legit they are, I had no previous dealings with them, in fact I'd never even heard of them before the Ironhide fillers became available.

    After receiving the items I ordered so quickly, and with free postage, I'm prepared to call TFSafari one of my new favourite shops for 3rd party add-on kits, right up there with eBay seller johosontony.

    I have a pay-pal acct but no credit card attached and i really don't wanna use it. I've used the pay-pal guest check out on a website to buy transformers using pay-pal guest check out. I have had really good luck using that form of payment on PayPal guest but i can't check any info about purchase but I'm fine with that. Do you think i could do that to buy parts and use it for ebay to buy transformers as well on eBay. I've always wanted to ask someone can i use PayPal guest on eBay and any other website that takes PayPal.

    EDIT - JUST CHECKED WEBSITE
    You have to paint the parts,......welll forget that. I have NO paint and no brushes so I'm OUT but if they are painted i might consider it.

    That looks very interesting!

    Could we please have some more photos?Especially photos showing all the components spread out to show what is included in the purchase.

    Do you have any details on how these will be sold? Will they be made of gray or white plastic?

    Will they be sold as one piece still on the sprue or, like the Ironhide fillers, sold as a bag of parts?

    And, of course, how much can we expect to pay?

    Looking forward to learning more.

    You don't need a credit card to use PayPal, if you like you can connect PayPal to a bank account.

    If you are concerned about a seller taking more money than you have authorised you should speak to your bank about opening an offset account.

    Connect PayPal to the offset account and only transfer in the amount you wish to spend. That way there is only a small amount of money to withdraw through PayPal and the rest of your money is safe.

    I hope this gives you enough peace of mind to buy the items you want. :)

    Yeah,..... it definitely gives me enough to make a decision. Now the problem is not so much as the money now but it says on the webpage you have to paint the parts. Since they are white cause they are garage made parts it's up to you to make them look good. So as much as I'd like to I'm going to have to pass on these till someone else has something. Maybe shapeways will have something down the road in grey or black and red for ironhide.

    The parts for Ironhide, which are made by Ratchet Studio and sold by TFSafari, come in metallic gray - a really, really close match to the gray parts on Ironhide.

    They don't need any painting at all, unless you want them a different colour.

    The Soundwave parts, made by Tim Heada and sold by TFSafari, do only come in white, so you would have to paint those.

    It's fine for me, because I want the parts for a different toy, so I would be painting them anyway, but I can totally understand folks who aren't into painting seeing the white colour as a turn-off.

    Now this is what I'm talking about as far as size comparisons and showing the differences! :thumb :thumb :thumb :thumb 

    Thanks!

    With leg extension's (He deserves to be a little taller to) and something that holds his head in place to prevent sinking into his chest (I'm currently using tissue).

    I didn't get the feet fillers.:(

    Those fillers really add heft and weight. No feet fillers is disappointing.
