    I guess I know what I'm spending my stimulus payment on. I hope no one beats me to it cuz' otherwise, it's not meant to be mine ... yet. Maybe I'm still going for Hastak's version. IDK, we'll see in a few hours when the direct deposit posts.

    I asked the maker of the wing tips and he thinks they won't fit. Not sure if that helps as it's not a 100% confirmation and no one has the new rings in hand

    Yep. The tip of the upgrade set looks totally different from the stock wings. I don't believe the spikes will fit.

    Is TFSafari up to $350 ($340 after 3% coupon) now? Or am I looking at the wrong thing/wrong coupon?

    I was able to get the musical card circuit board into unicron. He now has a voice.

    I had to order a smaller speaker to get it into a smaller form factor. It's from amazon 30mm 0.5watt.

    Also mounted a small pushbutton directly on the board. It's a normally closed button btw.

    I did trim a bit of the on/off button to so it would not scrape the sides. Not completely so just a little of the plastic.

    Also used a piece of plastic to sticky tape the battery and speaker to. The angle its in makes it easy to slide into his abdomen cavity.

    The board works great. Just have to make sure you remove all the hidden system files and leave only the mp3s on there and there is no lag.
    I just open him up from the back and press the button to say the next phrase.

    I'll post the audio clips I extracted from the movie.

    Here is the circuit board. You need the push button activated one.

    This is the 30mm smaller speaker

    I guess they increased the price by $10. It was $339 before coupon when I bought it early in the week.

    If a new WJ company had popped up and made an OS scale of this, I would have been all over it already. He's going to be shorter than my WJ Devastator and GC Shuraking. The hell with scale I suppose.

    Yeah, they have a 3% off one on the coupons page. But they have multiple coupons available.

    NEWBEE is the one I used.

    It takes them a few days to ship, fyi. So don't be worried if you don't get an order update quickly.

    The Chosen Prime sent out availability notifications implying the upgraded wings will be in stock within 2 days. Given that they're a US retailer, and Asian retailers already have their stock, seems like someone should have these in hand by now.

    This seems awesome. Any chance for a full list of parts with links?
