    Amazon.co.jp has "Transformers TF Encore goddofaiya-konboi" for ¥22,261 or roughly $196 USD with the current exchange rate, which comes out to less than $100 USD for each figure (before any potential taxes or shipping charges but if you're buying this set within Japan, as I am, you don't get charged any tax or shipping anyway).

    This is hardly the grossly exaggerated $300 USD that you quoted. And Amazon.co.jp has the potential of the price dropping as it gets closer to release too, with lowest preorder price guarantee on top of that.

    Still, I'll take your word that Magnus isn't worth what Fire Convoy is. Judging from pictures, Magnus does look somewhat similar to LG Godbomber in terms of engineering (in that he has to partsform and is kinda hollow-ish in order to combine with another figure to form armor, etc.).

    Yup, the worst part about Ultra Magnus is that only his legs are hollow. Big chunky squat torso held up by two very long L-shaped sticks.

    Thanks for the Amazon link. Decided to check it out and think I'm going to switch my preorder to them. With shipping it comes out to about 27,000 yen. Seems like it'll end up being a bit cheaper than were I had my preorder.

    According to the link, the latest issue of Figure King (issue #237) has a secret URL to listen to some of the new voice clips God Magnus' voice actor recorded for this Encore release.

    Neat. Shouldn't take too long until someone shares it I hope.

    Canceled my Takara Tomy mall order and went to Amazon instead for preorder. Saved over $90. Not quite fuck me after all.

    So God Fire Convoy is coming in one big set? Is that right? Do we know that? I haven't kept up with the news. I'd love to pick up a Fire Convoy by himself.

    "When you listen to things to people, you are told from yourself"

    Real helpful there Google translate :lol 

    If I knew the episode it comes from I could look it up, but the phrase isn't ringing any bells, at least not in this horrible state.

    If someone can help with the romaji and translation of the second clip, may get a news credit too!

    Not so sure, but this is what I think it sounds like...

    @Darkstone can you verify it?

    Yup. I guess they figure no one would want one without the other. But I sort of agree I’d jump all over Convoy and worry about Magnus later.

    That second clip sounds closer to

    "hito ni mono wo kiku toki wa jibun kara nanoru mono da ze"

    Edit: Messing around with different parts of the sentence in Google translate gives me something a bit more understandable.

    "When people listen to things, it is something you say from yourself."

    I can't verify that sadly, I don't speak Japanese or understand it beyond the phrases commonly used in Japanese media.

    It could be that, could be something different, I have no idea. For curiosities sake I might re-watch the episodes where God Magnus has at least a semi-important role and try to see if I can find the line.

    What I got for the second clip is this:

    "When I hear things from myself, it's a wonderful thing"

    Clearly sounds like God Magnus to me.:D

    I think I’ll pass on the reissue...

    ...but I’d sure be all over a set of reissued tires! :)
