    Specifically, from my UW Menasor set.

    She's got 5mm ports on either side of her torso.

    I keep looking at her body coloration, and I keep wondering if more of her grey/silver would make for a better torso color addition via the guns or a repainted groove/rust dust. As that would tie her legs into the torso more.

    But on the same note, repainting them to match the helmet front/feet W purple would tie things up a bit more cohesively.

    How about a Wreckgar with the black parts from Groove and some minor paint.

    I initially dismissed this set completely, but after Thew's review... DAMN, added to the list. And so is Baldigus.

    I am weak :(

    Ya, Thew's review swayed me to get this set as well.

    I picked this up about a month ago without a box but for $100, and it's an amazing looking combiner. My only complaints is the ladies could have used cuter facial expressions like in the manga and the four deluxes don't have card symbols on their deco anywhere, but those are minor nitpicks. Still worth picking up if you can.

    I wonder if a Reprolabel sticker upgrade set will come out for this combiner team?

    That would be sweet, but I feel it's not that necessary as Takara really went all-out on the paint apps.

    It would make them better, but it's not a must like TR Sentinel Prime.

    You're wondering if Reprolabels will come out with a set for a limited release all original combiner that came out over a year ago? o_O  Yeah, any day now.


    As an aside, I always find it intriguing how dependable the cycle is that a figure that comes out and gets a thread in News and Rumors gets the standard attention, then dies off. Then almost exactly a year later, someone resurrects the thread because they've just gotten the figure (or are about to) and instead of going to the Feedback forum which is nothing but discussion about the figure, mods, personal opinions, and the like, bumps the news thread instead.

    Well, one could turn it into news by just asking Reprolabels to make that set. Worked for the upcoming Eject upgrade kit.

    Well I finally caved in and I'm looking for anywhere that I can find Megatronia for cheap. Any suggestions?

    With Jungle you have to email them to get a shipping quote. For the size of the UW boxes they’d probably require it be shipped EMS, or at least by registered mail. They do also charge a handling fee. I don’t remember exactly how much since it’s been a while since my last order with them. Somewhere between 500 to 1000 yen on top of shipping. Even if the shipping came out to $50 it still could come out cheaper than BBTS if the exchange rate doesn’t get any worse.

    I bought mine from Toyarena, they are selling her for $129.99. If you pad your order to $150 you can get free shipping.

    Yes, they are based in Southern California. I’ve bought quite a few things from them over the years and see them often at conventions.

    Nice, that's a really good price... I was gonna use points at The Chosen Prime for her, but this might be better... just need to unload my 10th anniversary Beast Wars stuff, maybe Animated Blackout first too, plus my current club figures on ebay...

    Took me long enough to forward the package after ordering it way back on International Women's Day (how fitting!), but 20180319_204403967_iOS (2).jpg getting to buy this set for a price I couldn't have imagined with an LG Arcee to boot was probably my biggest score all year!

    She's a beaut, isn't she? One of my favourite HasTak toys for a long time.
