    I just dropped a grand total of $130 for an un-modded MISB MP05. I can't wait to get it and I do mean it, this is the last Transformer toy I'm buying for a long time.

    Just a few questions to those who did

    - It's supposed to be shipped this month right, like March 30th?

    - Has anything new come out about the whole blaze orange tip business? What part of Meg's robot form would that tip be put on? Is it rubber? Glued?

    Nah. I'm waiting to see if a buddy in Japan can pick me up one and get it through customs when he comes for a visit. I find the whole "orange cap" thing a tad annoying.

    And, if he can't, I'll probably wait to see if the rumors of the Hasbro issue of the figure is true -they'll probably let us know at Botcon this year... probably-.

    Preordered it the first day it was available from Hobby Link Japan for $78.

    No complaints and can't wait for it to get here.

    You know that after the pre-orders started, HLJ said they would only be sending modified orange tip versions to the U.S. right?

    I was going to pre-order, but then I decided I'd just track an un-modded one down after release, rather than risk getting a modded one.

    On ebay, the seller guaranteed it would be unmodded.

    I'd hate to keep reposting in my own thread, but read this

    " ยง 1150.3 Approved markings. The following markings are approved by the Secretary of Commerce: (a) A blaze orange (Federal Standard 595a, February, 1987, color number 12199, issued by the General Services Administration) or orange color brighter than that specified by the federal standard color number, solid plug permanently affixed to the muzzle end of the barrel as an integral part of the entire device and recessed no more than 6 millimeters from the muzzle end of the barrel. "

    Permanently affixed? How the hell would you transform it then?

    pre-ordered from fan2fan. Should be unmodded, hope customs dont snag it

    the orange plug would be attached to the very tip of the gun barrel. Seeing as how the barrel doesnt need to split in half or anything for the transformation, it wont affect anything other than looks.

    I haven't preordered yet. Just looking to see where I can get the cheapest one possible (doesn't matter if its modded or unmodded)

    I know. I didn't really care. I just want him.

    I didn't want to go through all the trouble of finding an unmodded one with jacked up prices. If I go through HLJ including EMS shipping I have a feeling it'll end up costing around $100.

    Yeah me neither. I have a sinking feeling I'll have to resort to ebay to get one without an orange tip though:(

    I wonder if it'll be some industrial strength type crazy glue.
