    BBTS has a pre-order up. I was expecting a $500 price tag so I was pleasantly surprised.

    very cool, i was thinking recently that a FM encore would be rather nice and there it is!

    nice that takara is releasing a toy that is probably on many must have lists. Wonder if its a fresh mould or from original?

    OMG! I so pre-ordered this. $350 is a great price! Sure beats paying over a grand for the holy grail when this will do

    Another wake up the house moment for me. I cannot believe they are releasing him. I hope Grand Maximus is not far behind now....

    I may be crazy for doing it, but ordered! I have my vintage one but it's pretty badly yellowed. A mint one will be SO welcome.

    Not paying the extra $50 though, I can wait. Shipping will be insane as it is.
