    Hong Kong is a paradise when it comes to getting 3P figures for cheap, but I wouldn't be able to afford a big flat so that puts a limit on what I can buy.

    I'm not seeing any cracks in my Youth version shoulders. Has anyone else?

    I have a funny one. Baba shipped one of my packages on November 12th, and then a day later it left the country ...... supposedly since 10 days later the package left the country AGAIN and is still somewhere.

    I’m actually a fiddler. I transform my bots back and forth quite a lot. I did sand and file down the area that the wheels would push against to allow for a “free rotation”

    Well then perhaps all copies should have that done.

    But then again it's possible your cheese came from a different batch ;)

    Pre-ordered both the trailer and accessory pack via ShowZ.

    I for one always want to save money, but I'm too deep into this set not to get the whole package. Hoping it won't be a complete shit show. Went in on the ShowZ Premium account as well since I buy there all the time so it should pay itself in points over the next year.

    Completely understandable. I for one would like to see what the combined form look like without the add on kit.

    Technically if you just the trailer and accessories pack you can make a Menasor minus the leg cars? You don’t need MM to form the combined mode correct?

    Sadly I just received confirmation from ShowZ. They won't be adding the social media promotion to the Trailer or Accessories Pack because the profit margin is already so low. :( 

    So it looks like $261 is what I'll be forced to spend to finish my XTB Menasor.

    Nope. Guess my XTB Stunticons just lost the ability to combine until they return the accessory pack back to part of the trailer price or drop the trailer price $100. I refuse to pay more for his Trailer than I did for Gravestone

    Rats. I wouldn't mind even 5% points back on this. Maybe they'll have a Christmas sale when I can pay off my pre-orders like 11/11.

    Still it is $261 total (compared to $305). If you're a premium member you'll still get 783 points so that's $7.83 off one of my other preorders. Effectively $253.17 then for the pair. I like saving more than $50.

    Now I need to decide if I really need the "base" if my XTB figures are staying in bot mode. Darn impulse for a "complete" set even when I know I won't use the "base" very much and zero chance of using the accessories. That "super gun" they included is just terrible. I wouldn't even split it up for the individual bots.

    A Youth Flipout would go a long way to completing the Stunticons for me. Does the trailer come with the black roller car-thing for a toy-style Menasor chest or is that something we have to hope comes with a Youth version of Gravestone?

    My thoughts exactly. They've lost a sale with their ludicrous pricing.

    The money I've saved so far will go towards more worth while things.

    I'm hoping tfs express does a deal for both the trailer and accessories for one price. I'm also in too deep so will buy this and then XTB can go fuck themselves with a sweet potato.
