In regards to the cost of the headband....

I think I would just run to Jo-Ann Fabric and get a ribbon.

For what it's worth, that headband was pretty much useless. Go to a craft store and buy a spool of thin ribbon in the color of your choice for about fifty cents. TA-DA! Instant headband.

Haha, I was more appalled at the markup than actually wanting it. I plan to do just that, or as El Duque mentioned, a twisty tie. Just outrageous. Same with Over-run, markups are laughable. I want him, Runamuck is lonely, but I have self control... currently.

This is probably a stupid question but because I live in Australia, I wouldnt be able to go to SDCC (Im 15) and therefore I would be unable to purchase the properly coloured FOC Bruticus. Would Toyarena sell properly coloured Bruticus (even for a big price) or will I just be stuck with neon Bruticus. :???:

Just ask a member from the US to buy one for you from HTS and send it to you.

I'm 15 too, and I live in Asia. That's worse. :-( Well, I'm waiting on the United release.

Get a Generations wheeljack and spray it black. Works for me ;) (Still a WIP)

^ Looks good! I could attempt that, I have two Wheeljacks. What are you doing for a head though? And on the clear smooth plastic of his chest/windshield do you use a primer, or what paint wont come off so easily? I have yet to try painting a full figure, I usually stick to small enhancements and weapons, so I only have paint markers.

How do these guys get hold of the sets so early anyways ??? Do they have a entourage of secret shoppers who committed to selling their Primus package sets in advance ??? Or is Funpub selling them stock intentionally ???
