    I don't see why ToyWorld just doesn't make some of these and send them to retailers. There's got to be a lot of us still needing a set.

    BBTS have a listing that's "pre orders sold out" but the ETA date just keeps updating every month, so who knows if they'll ever materialise. And even then I need them to get additional stock or have someone cancel.

    I wouldn't mind but TW are making these every time they do another green Devy (including the silver thigh versions where they defile the sacred greenness!), they just don't make extras for some reason.

    Nope, but it makes sense. Sending something that size back to HK, or wherever they are, might cost as much as the set itself. Shipping from the US is much more expensive than shipping to the US for some reason.

    It also says parts not working (with a picture of the issue), though despite having had two versions of Constructor I’m not sure what I’m looking for in that picture.

    Hey, I'm glad it's not lost anymore!
    Btw, those pics I posted are not mine, I had taken them from this thread when I was preparing to purchase and was taking notes on the fixes.
    I only had to take off half a circle of the spring (~1/2 inch) which I think most others did as well.
    I assume the photo with the springs are showing both springs and not one that was cut in two pieces.

    I saw that one, it is missing the front plate of Scavenger
    Maybe the buyer wanted to return because of missing part?
    I'm sure ShowZ could have sent a replacement part from TW but it would've take a while.

    I’m leaning again to keeping the cell shade. I’m so indecisive! Hahaha. I think the beauty of that beast is also in the individual modes. Still waiting on OG. I think he was thrown overboard and had to swim to the US. LOFL!!:eek: :p :D  The good thing is he is on the way and his status was finally updated. Yay!

    I have some from my first edition that I never got rid of. Glad I kept them. They are pretty cool.

    Dude, it's hard to believe people are spending $1k on the OG version Constructor at TFS. That is like...wow. I just peeked for shits and giggles and there is one left in stock. Amazing!

    Land hooooo!!! He finally made it to my hometown. Now I get to see if I’ll keep OG and just how the color looks in hand. The great debate continues tomorrow when I pick him up from my work place. LOFL.

    That's great, he finally arrived.
    If you can, I'd love to see a pic of the whole gang.

    Tax. I think you (?) guys in the US have a large field of play regarding imports (100$?)

    Compare that with the EU that has 24% once you reach 25euro (around 28-30$) and you understand where this comes from.

    Haha. Glad you are happy. If I keep the cell I need to sell the odd head and the metal tracks. Doubt I’ll keep them.

    I think a lot of those countries subsidize the shipping costs so they can more easily export products.
