I pre-ordered one. I don't think I've bought any Official or 3P MP since Downbeat or Meteror...or maybe it was one of the third party animated style OPs. I'm blanking on the name of the 3P OP, but I did pass on the official.
I ordered Phoenix almost exactly five years ago at $220. I hate to say it but Skyfire's price almost seems reasonable. I wonder why it's a Mall exclusive?

I ordered Phoenix from BBTS in May 2021 for $299.

I am very happy to stick with him for my MP Skyfire. I know there is a significant fan base for Animation-style TFs, but personally I think that aesthetic looks awful, so I've pretty much been out of the Official MP game since 2015's Tracks.

Wow I wasn't paying attention & totally missed that the 2nd Trainbot was already out for pre-order!
Plus the 1st one should be here by this month.
It looks like they want to have the set done complete in 2 years. 3 this year & 3 next

What is everyone's opinion of AliExpress? I was reading over on TFW2005 that it's a good site to use, but I'm always wary of new marketplaces.

They have tons of MP's there, most probably KO's, but the prices are good. I saw an MP-36 KO Megatron, $75 shipped, so I bit on it but wanted to see everyone's opinions on the place. My KO won't arrive until sometime next month, but if they are legit then I wouldn't mind jumping on a few other deals I see. TFW says a lot of their MP's are authentic, but I kinda doubt it at the prices I'm seeing.

What say you? Reliable place to do business? Or naw?

Im a believer in KO's. heck there is even you tube reviews of KO toys and they look exactly like the real one.
i think its worth it. As far as Ali express, i bought acouple of things there with no issues.

umm what is happening at Anime-Export?

https://www.anime-export.com/index.php?product=58463

I can pre-order for the same price at TFSource with free shipping!

I fear it may be the end of decent priced pre-orders. :cry:


it seems their conversions are wrong
I paid $113 pre-shipping

I got the KO Thomas/Astrotrain in the mail today and I'm really impressed. I have a lot of Fans Toys figures and I'd never know it was a KO of someone handed it to me.

Ali Express. I ordered the KO Cyclonus a week before Astrotrain, but that one hasn't been delivered yet.

Found MPM Blackout at Target last night. The price hurt- 165 before tax, but having it in hand really helps ease the pain. He's a beautiful representation of his onscreen counterpart, and easily the most accurate yet. Some great paint apps and articulation on both him and Scorponok. He's a beast of a bot, and just looks menacing and dangerous. I'm glad I snagged him, even if my wallet isn't. :D
