    Yep I can confirm it's a widespread QC problem, the one I bought had the same kinda problem as described on the feedback forums.

    But it's no biggie for me. Otherwise it's stable to stand and pose as it is out of the box.

    I see. Since standing stable is ok. Did you try to see if it can hold a side kick pose?

    I wanted to start my MP collection with Acid Storm being my first proper MP, but have given up when saw a youtube vid that the leg will split open if you separate them a little bit.

    The only MP I will continue to get are maybe those not release on Takara side from now.

    YES! Whirl is good. Whirl is very good (I'm also very biased because Whirl is awesome)

    I'm not interested to do the kung fu kick pose for my mp grimmy, so it doesn't matter much for me.

    Btw you're jumping to conclusion just based on one youtube vid? That's ridiculous dude!

    Edit: I just did the nail polish fix on my Mp Grimmy & now doing kung fu kick pose isn't a problem at all lol :D

    Hi all,

    Not a local sighting but more an international one. Amazon just had a restock of Legends Swerve and Cosmos at 8.99USD each. The free international shipping for purchases over $125 still applies.

    As I tire of waiting for local shops to bring them in I went ahead and placed an order. Got a few extra pieces to bring the total up to $125. Do any of you want to take them off my hands? I'm selling them off as a pair at S$24. Very limited quantity, first come first served. Pm me for details. If there are no takers then they'll be peddled off at CSC (and not for $24/pair).

    Estimated arrival in a few weeks.


    Also, I'll be at CSC today selling stuffs. Come by say hi!

    Bro which stall would be selling yr stuff? First floor or the 2nd floor? Also how do we identify which is your stall, maybe a brief rundown of the stuff you're selling would be helpful for all the bros & sistas here. :) 

    I might just drop by later..

    Nah. I saw many video complaining about it. I am shallow sometimes. But i am not thattttt shallow. Haha.

    Glad you found a fix for that. The nail polish tricks works wonder. But i realise the nail polish will make the portion you applied shine. And need to reapply again after some time right?

    By the way. I stalked your website and found you were clearing MP. Haha cannot resist picking up the Grimmy to play again right?

    Wow. Very tempting, but i am controlling from straying further in my collection. I went into the Kreo and Costruct bot domain and no turning back. If i am going to start on legends.....

    But i am sure interested in Skarpnel. Are they selling that there?

    Which stall will you be at?

    Any way to get just the Cosmos? Been wanting him a while now. If you do want to sell as a pair, no worries I can find someone to sell the extra Swerve to. So please do hold a pair for me and let me know when they arrive?

    I can pick them up from you at CSC on a Sunday after they get here but yeah. Gotta let us know which one your stall is and where to find you.

    You are a whirl fanatic. Jazz, Wheeljack and Whirl sure hold a special spot in your heart.

    Hahaa.

    Got to agree with this. Scalpers are fine until you are the victim of one, and them its the worst feeling in the world. They buy exactly what people want, which creates a market that they can sell at a higher price because of 'rarity' that they created! At the end of the day, they make a profit from a collectors community. We have to pay more because they feed off our love for the product by creating the short supplies.

    Wish I had seen this earlier, I was just there today.

    OK, two quick questions....

    1. Does anyone know where I can grab a Prime Deluxe Windrazor and Twinstrike (the upscaled Cyberverse ones)?

    2. Is U-Toys open during the week? They should be as they are a regular store at CSC, but I have only ever been on a Sunday.

    Thanks.

    You have no idea how many bots hold special places in my heart.

    I've had friends fall victims to scalpers. In a way they're also hurting the franchise because new fans who want the toys are forced to come in and pay obscene prices to scalpers and this can put them off buying toys completely.

    U-Toys IS open on some weekdays. Usually in the evenings. So best to call them and check before going down
