    I got mine for just over 100. It's not an expensive figure.

    ShowZ still has him for $105. You’ll be paying around $16 for shipping unless that changed. Don’t know what your EBay seller is charging but you don’t have to wonder what you are getting at ShowZ. Shipping will take about a month though.

    That’s where I got mine. Not to mention you get a coupon code when you first make an account with them (at least I did) which helped cover costs.

    They look good together. I paired mine with DLX Prime.

    I know I'm just repeating myself, but Zeta Pioneer is my favorite purchase of the year. Can't wait for Zeta Blitzwing!

    Keep them coming with the BB movie figures zeta/Toyworld!

    Are those eyes painted? If so, what paint did you use? They look great!

    Hey folks, so I got one of these secondhand recently and whilst mostly it's brilliant, the yellow thigh plating is protruding away at the back and looks like either it was poorly modded or incorrectly assembled and glued, is anybody else's like this? It's the same on both sides. I wouldn't mind but it makes the windows bulge out in car mode. Worst comes to worst I'll just cut the post off and glue the plate down directly to the thigh. Thanks for any insight! 20200813_060751.jpg

    No issues on mine. Looks like an assembly issue :/

    Just be careful because the plastic used isn't the strongest. Had the first tab breakage in all of my collecting... And modifying the bumper felt like cutting through butter...

    That’s perfect! Thanks for the info and the link. It just adds that much life to the eyes for the look I am going for.

    Has anyone managed to successfully disassemble the head for this? I want to paint the eyes (and want to do the whole eye rather than just the pupils, though terintamel's version looks great!) and that means getting the eye piece out.

    I got the back and sides off easily enough, but couldn't get the two halves of the head separated. I figured the top might be a separate piece and I might need to get that off, but it doesn't seem to pull off. Any tips?

    I disassembled mine. Seems to me it was pretty easy - took out the battery cover and then another screw iirc. I don't remember anything about the sides but I was able to get the face and eyes to both come out separately.

    I've bought 2 things from them in the past month and paid the $6 shipping and had both in about 12 days from the time it shipped.

    Transformed him to alt mode for the first time... took me an hour or so.... terrible :confused: 

    Quality feels good though. One of the red lights fell out of the fender, but that's an easy fix with some glue.
