    Like the DL Blaster stage and Jem. Excellent work! Forget the Mattel/Hasbro hot wheels collab, here is where it’s at. Something perhaps akin to kiss players but not soo much.

    Probably the closest we'll see to a MotU Doom Tower anytime... at all, honestly.

    Man, that is a face that has witnessed the worst of humanity. You know he's hearing bombs dropped and screams over gunfire as they pin that medal to his chest.

    Actually not in a long time I haven't. Used to ebay didn't charge fees on the shipping and handling price so sellers listed low buy it now with the real cost being the shipping and handling charge. Ebay wised up to that after a while and they charge the fees on the total instead. Stopped a lot of the ridiculous shipping costs and people just listed stuff like it should have been.

    I ordered an arctic burn wasp after watching demarcation’s live build on YouTube the other night. You never know every time they release something if it’s going to end up being impossible to find later, or if it will be everywhere on clearance. $40 and free shipping from paulmarts. Not sure if that’s retail or not.

    I've seen $100 shipping on ebay when I was trying to get some Earth rise exclusives over last 2 years. They just said shipping was that much, no mention of fees or anything.

    Oh no!!!
    Does anybody have the instructions for the designer Series UNSC Scorpion Tank GGG61?
    It was only available online and now mattel only provides an useless 3-page pdf...

    Products - Instructions | Mega Brands

    Any help?

    Wow, it looks like there never was any kind of printed manual, just the website. Your "online only" description was VERY true.

    With that website down, your only option is to contact Mattel Customer Service and hope that they have a pdf file that they can send you.

    There's certainly a lot of ifs in that scenario, but I can't think of any other way.

    I wish you luck.

    Posted your issue on reddit, and someone found a set of videos on youtube that might help you. This is the first of 20, so you may have to go to the guys page for the rest:

    Thank you for that! :) 
    Unfortunately, the youtuber seems to be missing some videos...

    I also sent an email message to Mattel about the issue and asking for a pdf version of the instructions.
    Hopefully they will give me a positive answer (at least they gave me a case number so far...)
    If I get the full pdf instruction, I will post it here.
