    Typically this is like a videogame preorder. Except without the final price known in advance. You put $10 in to announce intent. Final cost is whatever plus shipping minus your $10 deposit.

    Unclear if refunds are offered should pricing be unsatisfactory, but for this among many other reasons I tend to not preorder robots anymore.

    He shouldn't cost anymore than $15. I'm not worried. I think that's what tf-Direct is selling him for and she tends to be cheaper.

    It's just sometimes, her wording is confusing.

    Sounds like $10 plus shipping. She sells their Galvatron for like $15 shipped, so this would be in line with that pricing.

    That's what I thought. I bought Galvatron from her and he's on the way.

    Funny enough, those are my only two KO MPs and I had basically the same problems. Sideswipe is basically perfect other than the misspelled "Countach" on his butt, but my Red Alert's legs are both really floppy at the hips. He stands fine after some fiddling, but basically the second I pick him up his leg flops around and I have to position him just right to get him to stand up again. He's fine so long as I don't move him, though.

    Started an Instagram with vintage KOs from around the world that i've been slowly finding over the past 18-19 years:
    TF_KOllector (@tf_kollector) • Instagram photos and videos

    A lot of this stuff was part of a site I was building but the host ended up changing and all my content was deleted, never had the heart to redo all the work until I found something easy to post with using the instagram platform.

    I wondered where your site from back in the day had gone! Thanks so much for putting these back up somewhere.

    She's a plastic crack dealer on facebook. She also sells on ebay and is opening a site, soon. She takes requests, too.

    And Magnus is $10 + shipping. Very cool

    Yes, I think Toybento does similar with certain pre-orders. They've got a combiner for a mere 50 dollars, which is just the deposit.

    According to some, "she" is actually a "he". I suspect females are seen, commercially speaking, as more trustworthy?
