    Right on, buddy! I added a Dark Cathode Ripper and the DA-88 to my stack. Still on the fence about Dianauts… no, I’m not. Just took another look and added them to my stack too. :D 

    Now I just need to decide if I’m going to throw a second Dark Ripper in there.

    The addiction is real! At least ordering through TFSource gives us some extra time to save up for the financial impact. :D

    It will have to be via EMS, but I have no idea of price... Just contact them and they should be willing to tell you. Know that the box is a bit large.

    That's the exact reason why I never bought that. I was eyeballing it a month or so ago, but that shipping is too off putting for me. I pre-ordered V-Shadow and I just hope they release the Container rig for him.

    Well, thinking about it, thats $300+130+maybe $30 in tax? Thats around $470. The cheapest one on ebay including shipping is still $500+. So Robot Kingdom is my best option…

    I figured it would be high as I think original shipping when rates were lower was over $50, but that was more of an increase than I expected. (The international shipping is why I often just wait for US domestic sellers to get stuff in, if an option...)

    The ones on eBay may even be these... There are horrible flippers on eBay.

    Wonder Festival Autumn 2021 Online Announced In Japan - Transformers News - TFW2005

    Takara will be here. And it’s prime time to show off a ton of figures that haven’t officially been shown. They haven’t done a good job of using online events well, but the dam of toy news is literally about to bust. I don’t think we’ve had this many G1 figures on the plate, nor a lack of BW news in a very long time. I’m expecting a big show, just like I always do :(

    I'll finally get my da-69 (lol) today. 6/8 hours tops and i'll have it in hands.

    Can't wait to see how does it fit with my red riser...

    ...and to complete my red base camp.

    Soon it will be part of a semi-desertic seashore diorama, i just have to find the orange/red sand, get some fake plants and rebuild the tent with fake leather, because that's made of thin cardboard. There will also be real water, and a concrete area made with some sandpaper. Maybe i'll even add some ruins.

    So. Going back and looking at Robot Kingdom’s listings for Convoy. It’s $399 not $299.


    Can anyone here enable me with some awesome photos to help me decide?

    Am I alone in feeling like DA-88 Powered Weapons pack feels a bit over priced even for Diaclone?
    [​IMG]

    The other mini vehicle power-ups (DA-52, 55, & 56) all came in at around $80 and contained suit cores rather than just a pod core. Those vehicles also feel and look more self-contained than DA-88. By that I mean they look like mini jets or a mini tank whereas DA-88 just looks like a backpack with weapons they slapped a bobble on to make it fly.

    No, you're not alone in that thinking. It is definitely an odd item... It feels incomplete. I get that TTMall items usually are primarily repacked/repaints, but this is a weird offering. I think I said earlier that it feels like wheels or wings were accidentally omitted.
