    Lol your right and made me eat my words. I ordered from TFS on the 6th, paid for expedited shipping. It's now the 11th and Gravestone youth version still isn't here. Mind you they're only 2 hours away from me. I could of drove there and got it myself sheesh!

    TCP or A3U, I'm telling you. Usually 2-3 days from order to my door.

    ordered a couple of these last week from tf-direct and got an email a day later saying they will need another $25 for extra shipping. Told them to cancel one and just send the other to get size and weight down. Never heard anything back, nothing has been shipped, and still been charged for items. Not sure I will be buying from them again. Is this the norm for that place? Only used them twice before and that was years ago. Just getting back into the toys. Not a happy start. Just ordered another from showz as I have always had good experience with them. Hoping to get the whole set but not seeing crackup anywhere but used ebay ones.

    I had store credit with TFS that's why I went with them. But your right, I never had a problem with TCP. Never tried A3U. Agabyss ships fast as well.

    TFSource is doing a sale on a couple XTB products including the Youth versions of Dragstrip and Breakdown. I couldn't resist and ordered the Youth Dragstrip.

    After combining and separating all five a few times over the past few months, I can say that I find going from combined mode back to trailer is by far the more frustrating of the two. Halfway through I almost always ask myself "why did I want to do this again?"

    A huge drawback with very big transformers it that it can be difficult to hold point A in place to work on area B without a dozen pieces flopping and getting in the way because everything is so heavy for the hinges. I love how this thing looks, but it is an undertaking.

    I just set my quickest time by far for Menasor to trailer...55 minutes.

    Tf-direct is probably the last choice from my seller list. A few days ago I had a question related to one figure, want to double check with them before I hit the buy button. They never get back to me, of course I won't buy and probably dodged a bullet.

    I've had my stunticon set in combined mode since getting the trailer back at the start of 2021. I really cannot be bothered going back into trailer mode ever again. I thought Fansproject was hard, but XTB outdid them.

    HAvent seen FT trailer yet, but i suspect the level of difficulty to be the same as XTB

    Gravestone and Flipout youth versions transformed. 1st time transforming these guys. I thought I'd break my nails, everything's so tight. Different tolerances in each joint though. Some are tight some are not. The abcrunch on gravestone is so easily dislodged as is his shoulder butterfly joints. Is there a remedy to this? Maybe I transformed something wrong? Flipout's waist to is too loose for my liking. Might have to apply some kiki. Other than those knitpicks both figures are nice. Never had the orginal gravestone or flip out but the tampo printing and resculpting of parts are nice. That being said, I'll probably get the rest of the team but I will not be getting the trailer to complete Menasor. 20210914_100726.jpg 20210914_093024.jpg 20210914_092737.jpg 20210914_092706.jpg 20210914_092646.jpg 20210914_092538.jpg

    Say it with me...
    "I don't need the youth set."
    "I don't need the youth set."
    "I don't need the youth set."
    "I don't need...well...if I could get them when they were on sale so the price wouldn't be so steep..."
    "Dammit!!! I don't need the youth set."
    "I don't need the youth set."

    I'm going through the same struggle.
