    Funny you should mention the WW comics. I was thinking of letting mine go. Alas, it is only the first 4 issues from Dreamwave.

    Did the trailer do anything when Prime was in robot mode? I assume it was a battle station/repair bay like it was in G1. The design looks cool and it would be fun if it got made but I"m unsure it would sell a lot of units.

    The trailer doesn't do anything in the comics, it just appear and disappear when Prime change mode.

    I like mine but I'd be willing to part with it if anyone really needs it.

    I would like to contact Spark Toys but I couldn't find any way to reach them. I also don't know if they are responsive to fans.

    Bought this guy along with ST-02 via a China seller for less than $180 shipped combined with some other discounts. What can I say he looks and feels amazing in-hand. Nothing to complain about at all and paint apps are succulent. He's so good the low-level nitpick I have is the matrix doesn't really plug into his chest, I just have to kind of sit it there. Spark Toys totally nailed it.

    Well.... damn, I noticed the smokestacks on my Alpha Pack were loose but then tonight I touched one and it broke off at the base of the post it connects to the forearms.

    So I sent a message to BBTS, hopefully I can get a replacement.

    I have been trying to get rid of this guy to no avail, even though I like it. Streamlining. Hope that the demand for this line keeps up after grimlock, as he might be enough to suck me back in.

    BBTS is sending me a spare exhaust part for the broken one I have, I asked for two. while one was broken, the other is cracked and stripped out where the screw threads in. However they told me this was the only one they had from a junked figure because the second smokestack I needed did the exact same thing to them as the one that broke on me.

    So I've been playing with glue to secure the cracked part and repair it myself.

    Anyone have issues with the shoulder kibble? Right side cover seems very loose on mine.
