    Wow. TFC might finally have redeemed themselves after Uranos, Ares, and Hades! Hope they get back on the fandom's good side, and continue to put out more combiners (still waiting for their Bruticus, Menasor, Abominus, and Computron).

    Too bad about the combiner ports. While I appreciate the Scramble City play pattern, I guess stability is still a higher priority (although I'm still not convinced they can't make the old ports work, as they're stellar on Prometheus).

    Sort of unrelated, but I'd like to show some TFC love!

    The ports don't work as they need to be side sprung and they are not. they there for end up to tight or to loose. it happens sometimes with Power Rangers/ Sentai toys that share that design feature too.

    I have a suggestion though - use a Hercules like leg extender then the actual toys never need to touch each other at all. It helps with TFC's habit of making the legs to short too.

    Oh I do however think the chap's head is to small and I would like a aftermarket replacement for it - it's to small for my tastes compared to the original toys proportions.

    I went ahead and rolled the dice as well. Looking at his feedback, I saw he had positive feedback selling Giga's Guttur for $140ish so maybe this is legit too.

    $80 for ironshell, when he's like $140 everywhere else?
    Scam. I'm sorry, but that's a scam. No way its $60 cheaper than everywhere else. Turtle jerky for $80 maybe.
    I really do hope I'm wrong but don't expect to be, and if that's the case get ready for some behavioral bashing, cos playing into that helps no-one.

    Edit, totally a scam as he's selling FT Galvatron with delivery by the 9th of December for $130.

    If you look at his feedback history, it looks like he does sell things waaay cheaper than other retailers and It looks like people actually have received their items. This is also a TFC product too, which are always way cheaper from china when the first are released. I ended up getting each TFC Prometheus limb about $30 cheaper off ebay as they were freshly released.

    Though the FT Galvatron's price seems way too good to be true, but in his defense for the delivery date the listing description does the dates are an estimate.

    Is the first part in reference to Ironshell? Are you saying his combiner ports aren't stable or were you talking about past TFC releases?

    Apparently mine is on its way over, so we'll see :)  I totally expect a box filled with tomato ketchup or something.

    Does TFS lag behind BBTS a lot when it comes to TFC stuff... Debating on whether or not to cancel at TFS and order from BBTS.

    Don't bother switching. BBTS can take 3-4 days just to ship it out.

    By a week or more, usually. I had whatever the TFC name for Guyhawk preordered at TFS, and it was closer to two weeks before he was in stock and shipped.

    That said, I've got a project on my plate that will likely have me shelling out some cash, plus the holidays coming up. Thinking I might hold off on Ironshell for a bit.

    At the very least I got positive feedback....I think. "回應快、付款爽快,一流!謝謝!" That's good, right?
