It was a pleasure buying from them - the responses were prompt, the package was well packed and the shipping was fast. Overall, I was a very satisfied customer.
Xmas is now around the corner (or at least near enough I think) and many fans and collectors might be thinking of doing some shopping - which is why I'm bringing this up now... Masterforce.co.uk might be a good place to start (they sell more than just Transformers).
Masterforce also has a FaceBook page.
Ok, now on to Mexican Skywarp....
Other than that, there are the 'usual' differences between Mexican and US (or Jap) releases. For example:
- the plastic used (for everything) is generally of a lower quality and less shiny, feels more brittle
- instructions are in Mexican and not glossy and the paper used feels like its recycled old newspaper.
- the box itself also suffers from not being glossy and feels to be of generally inferior paper - the printing on it is dry and parched and very rough.
Here are another few shots to show the brilliant purple nosecone.
