    That Getter Robo is incredible, had it preordered since day one. :D 

    1st June!
    So about twenty days, depending on time zones and such.

    You're horrible! I'm never helping you again! Y-y-y-ou're always so mean to me and stuff. Can't you just use the portal gun to transport the figure here or something so we can look at it? Come on Rick

    No other dimension has an mp dinobot morty.It's because they don't have people as dumb as you asking toy companies to make wasted pieces of plastic to represent characters like you and me.

    Well that's true, i want to see if TT can show him in the most accurate configuration to his CGI model, if it is misstransformed, it'll give me expectations of a really complex figure.

    Release date: woohoo!! Although September is much too far away.

    Also, my sympathies to fans in the UK. That price is absolutely insane and disgusting; almost twice US retail.

    Yeah the price for Bumblebee wasn't so bad, £79.99 which follows the 'traditional' pricing of just replacing the $ with a £. But the rest of the movie products are heaps more. Lucky I'm not planning on buying loads.

    I think...Hasbro will release theme as (obviously) TRU exclusives, the prices will be 100$/80$ respectively UNLESS you're buying them in these online stores (that's why BBTS, TFsource, etc, haven't said the prices because they won't sell these figures).
    And something in my head says that the Takara versions will come after these months (quite different to the hasbro version).
    But if Takara sells them at the same time, they should have made the pre-orders NOW, the pre-orders for Megatron started 6 months before its eventual release.
    In4 months this will be released, Bee in two and we haven't got the pre-orders yet

    This smells something wrong.

    As we still have Hascon and Tokyo Toy Show to expect some more MPM news, I think we can rest easy. Just this past week, I asked HLJ about another TF product scheduled for a July release, and they said they didn't know if their manifest would include it. I feel it's still too early for online retailers to know what they will stock until more details about a product is announced. You are right though, I think we can expect the Takara release to be later (though this wasn't the case with MP Bumblebee iirc)

    September ain't too bad!

    I also saw pics of a custom ROTF-leader-scaled TF2007 Megatron on Daimchoc's Facebook page today, and it made me realize how cool an MPM Megatron would be. It'd be great if HasTak could do it, but if not, that customizer should collaborate with some third parties.

    I really can't wait to see how they manage his weapons arsenal, such as his extending cannon and his flail. Oh god yes
