That's not Diaclone...
Remind me, are TFSafari a reliable seller? And would I be better off buying from them or Show Z? I've been looking to get Dr Wu's Slamdance, but seeing as none of the local etailers have it I'm looking into other options.
I've bought some upgrade kits from them before, they were reasonable as far as I remember.
It's about £27 on ebay if that helps
I'll look into it, though I'm somewhat wary of ordering from China on ebay.
I have had no problems with them or ShowZ.

I need 3P MP versions of these, please and thank you.
Bought loads of upgrade kits from them and never had any problems - they are also good at sending out replacements the odd time I've had stuff vanish into the ether.
I've also bought Newage and Dr Wu figures from them occasionally, and again - have never had any problems.
Yes, very much so. Show.Z are also good; I would say that you could not go wrong with either of them.
I had zero problems with TF Safari until their in-UK last leg delivery service became Hermes/Evri, and I don't know if that's a permanent change or if it's a luck of the draw thing, as prior to that I had previous orders landing via China Post or Orange Connect IIRC but the five or so attempts to get the Fei Te Diaclone bits I bought for my MicroMASKers project (which wasn't actually the exact assortment I ordered but the TF Saf Staff get a pass as it was the fifth or so attempt of potentially MTO 3D printed parts, and the essential bits I wanted were included).
Evri has put me on the fence about ordering from them again.
Ha, Here's me trying to start '23 on a Positive note too!
Whilst I'm moaning anyway though, I wish they'd left the Cliffjumper cannon third moulded in yellow gold on Creatures Collide Goldbug unpainted for a kind of bee stripes pattern homage to the full cannon. I know that would be somewhat asymmetrical for Jetskiing mode but that didn't stop them on SG 'Bug's Mega-Gat!
And about Crankcase's smokey clear gun, I thought I may have been harsh in my assessment of it's shortcomings so I had a quick go to see if I had overlooked it's compatibility with the grill shotgun, could it be underslung on the Skids gun copy?
No, it turns out that the grill gun's peg handle is too far forward/along to go in the underslung port, and even more annoyingly to me if that handle had been positioned to mirror the hinge's placement at the opposite end it likely would have had the clearance - AUGH!
Now, hopefully that's out of my system and I can cross back over to the Sunny side!
Thanks for the advice everyone. I'll probably see which one comes out cheapest with shipping. Has anyone noticed any drastic difference in shipping speeds between Robot Kingdom and Show Z and their different shipping options?
I've ordered from tfsafari loads of times with no issue. One of my reliable sellers.
Who are they?
Chase and Blades from Resue Bots.
Wait, what did you say? Ditch that plastic, buy this plastic
Fansproject Retro-Future Glacialord Full Set
Thanks. Never seen rescue bots, though my nephew has Boulder so i know of him.
Np. Boulder, those two, and Heatwave (the fire truck) are the main quartet of the show.
If I didn't own the set I would instantly buy at that price!
That sucks. Christmas is a terrible time to end a relationship. The extra stress of the time of year must be a catalyst, 'Merry and happy' time of the year my ass.
I know everyone says 'Happy New Year' but OMG I was such a grump last night. Don't know why people put such emphasis on it, just another day.
So, Earthspark Elita-1 has been sighted and bought in the UK, unfortunately I can’t remember if the post said Home Bargains or B&M. Keep your eyes peeled I guess
