New update from BBTS today of note are the following Transformer related items:
Orange tip strikes again. If I import one, it'll be from somewhere else.
I lol'd. It's like they're twisting the knife into people that hate the orange cap. Thank goodness I'm not one of them.
oh i don't even really care any more about the yellow tips, if you care so much, buy the first reissue lol or an original.
I agree, while I understand BBTS reasoning for putting the orange tip on his Megs and the MP-05 I definitely dont want to pay for a defaced toy.
I dont know if it has been brought up before about the MP-05 (a little off topic, sorry) but people are saying "why the orange tip if he is packaged in robot mode", well, coming from Japan, the packaging isnt like our MP-01 was packaged here, with the clear plastic showing the fig. The box is sealed, with a picture of the fig in both modes, robot in back, alt mode in front, is largely displayed on the front (going by previous MP releases) and therefore will probably show a pic of a semi-realistic looking gun on the front. And that may not fly with customs. Just a heads up before the BBTS bashing begins.
I hate the idea of an orange tip, so I am glad that I already own one of these.
I dunno bout that Gen 1 Megs. We all grew up with Gen 1 Megs but now that they have Mp-05 Megs, Do we really need this inferior model? Besides, if both come orange tipped then I wouldn't waste my time with the throw back. Also with the price of the Gen 1 Megatron, I would much rather get the MP-05 and spend 10 dollars more for a superior product.
If they ship MP Megs in robot mode, will they still have to put an orange cap on it??
but g1 megs is soooo awesome. Hes the right scale and he comes with the barrel silencer and stock extension. MP-05 doesnt and i dont think ill ever display him in gun mode. But i never display g1 megs in robot mode so oh well.
Oh, hell yeah more ******ed modifications to an otherwise awesome item. Only kidding I love BBTS.
The G1 Mgatron gun is smaller than 1:1 scale. Its only in scale when your 12 years old. I know MP Megtron will be oversized, but I have feeling he's going to be completely badass in gun mode. The P38 is a small handgun, so a slightly oversized one will be perfect size for what most people expect, about Desert Eagle size.
*points at his own Reissue Megatron without orange tip and laughs*
I want BOTH! I honestly think the masterpiece megs looks better then the original G1 version. And I grew up with the G1 version! (although i never got that transformer when I was a kid) LAME orange tips! arhhhhhhh I am going to have to do another IMPORT again.
on the upside of things, I still haven't gotten the classic voyagers yet, since I had the 3 of them sitting in my pile of loot. I just cancelled them, and ordered the prime/jetfire one for only $5 more than retail. I'll be picking up megs tomorrow at the local target.
2007 is the year of Megatron.
It's funny, while I think G1 Meg's is one of the worst TF toys ever made, I'm almost thinking about getting the re-issue SOLELY so I can display it with my G1 Prime and have a comparsion of sorts to the progress made over the years with their Masterpiece counterparts. Kind of like a three dimensional "from shit to gold" display or something
anyone know the status of the rerelease for Canada?
Orange cap on G1 Megs now? BBTS IS HISTORY'S GREATEST MONSTER!! [/sarcasm]
Already have my orange-tipless Megatron (and Megaplex) so it doesn't bother me. However, if I needed a Megatron I wouldn't pay that much for an orange tipped Megatron when I could just buy an unmodified one, or even a vintage from ebay. If Hasbro were to realease him like that, however, I'd be all over it.
lol $85 for a butchered and defaced toy
Good job plenty of other places in the US can import them quite legally without feeling the need to open them up and glue crap to them.
this will not only affect the figure but if its an additional bit of plastic glued to the barrel then the plastic in the box will be ruined too.
Anyone who works at BBTS should be required to wear an orange cap on their head at all times.
