    Following an email inquiry, BigBadToyStore.com responded that they were not going to carry the Masterpiece Megatron figure.

    Hi,

    We won't be able to due to it's similarity in appearance to a real handgun. We won't be able to get them through customs - sorry!

    Thanks!

    Bummer...well there is still time for that to change, especially if he is going to be packed in robot mode I don't really see the problem.

    A shame, but predictable since (as I've heard) they didn't carry the TFC 06 reissue Megatron. I'm sure other stores will carry it though, TFScource maybe.

    That sounds gay.
    We import Yugo 59/66 SKS's, Remington/Baikal shorguns, PS90, FS2000, etc and can't get a f'ing robot toy gun?
    All the toy guns are made in china. What's the difference?

    Well that certainly puts a bit of a damper on things. I always order my TFs through bbts and was counting on them for this too. I'm hoping customs doesn't kill this for other online retailers or we'll be seeing a lot of niagra falls with US customers.

    I was worried that something like this would happen. Hopefully Takara uses their marketing brain for once and packages him in robot mode. If they don't, it may be nearly impossible for American fans to get a hold of one. I wonder what would happen if you tried to buy one on eBay from overseas?

    Gay? What does homosexuality have to do with robot toys?

    Find yourself a different adjective. "Stupid", "dumb" or "retarded" would work well.

    This is to be expected since they didn't carry the G1 Megatron reissue. I have a feeling it will be packaged in robot mode though.

    I'll have to cheat on BBTS for this, then--hopefully HLJ.com will ship directly to me?


    You're absolutely correct to be offended. However, 'retarded' is equally offensive to many people.

    I stand corrected, you are absolutely right.

    Back on subject, I'm pretty sure we'll see similar situations as we saw with the G1 reissue of Megs. Some online stores won't carry it, then some eBay sellers will sell it at a premium price because they have it on hand in the US and then prices will eventually go back to normal levels.

    But, yeah. Hopefully TakaraTomy will package him in robot mode.

    BBTS may not have initially carried the TFC megatron, however they have had it on there in their "vintage" section along with vintage megatrons...what's the deal then?

    I was thinking the same. Besides it would nice because Prime was in robot mode.

    Not surprising, but still pretty stupid, ESPECIALLY if he's packaged in bot mode, maybe JRS will be getting him.

    I find it intensely ironic that you have trouble with toy guns in a country where the real things can be so easily obtained.

    I laugh in the face of your stupid second amendment.
