Seems to be, but at that I'm just speculating.Rated X wrote:NOS wrote:From what I've come to understand it's that MJ is letting them 'Mass Produce' these sets, but won't be using them to complete orders that were already made through him.
Only reason I can see for him doing that is so people who are planning to make more orders can go to a different source so they don't have to wait while at the same time lightening his future workload.
I see your point. But I dont see anything new in those pictures including the colors. Maybe "new" to people who dont visit TFW2005, but nothing technically new to people who order directly from him. As a matter of fact, if you order from him, you can pick the colors instead of getting a set with his choice of colors grouped together as a "set".
Yeah, the sales pitch for these is -very- exaggerated... I was tempted to pick some of these up at first, but given the short supply they intend to make available and the fact that the 'Limited Color Variations' are very minimal compared to the standard paint job from MJ selections... I'll stick with MJ.
The only real upside I can see to these kits is not having to wait. Where as with MJ people have been waiting close to a year to see their orders completely filled.
The other side of the coin to consider is QC. By placing an order with MJ you may result in better QC because he is producing them by hand. By placing the order through the online retailer, there isn't any QC guarantees
