    Cool. Nice closeups of the back of Thundercracker's boxart on those auctions. (C'mon pre-order. Wing your way to me with speed...)

    I like Ironhide's deco.

    And Galvatron looks better.

    Nice pictures, but please note that Galvatron is a much deeper purple in person. These pictures do not do his actual color of purple justice. I tried taking pictures with my digital camera tonight, and I just can't capture his true color of purple. Its a very rich shade of purple. Perfect actually.

    Are you in Japan? Any chance you can scan the instructions? Some guy I know asked for a scan of Henkei Galvatron's instructions.

    Yes, I am in Chiba, Japan right now. I will try my best to take pics of the instructions tomorrow. Its 4AM right now, and I need my beauty rest.

    I started a thread with the pictures of the new magna if you are interested in that.

    Thundercracker is my first preorder through BBTS. Does anyone know how long it usually takes for them to ship once these items are released?

    They usually have items like that from overseas in-hand about 10 days after release (give or take a couple of days).

    I expect them to get MPs and Henkei, etc in my hands about 2-2 1/2 weeks after release.

    I have him pre-ordered as well and I expect to see him around the 2nd week of Dec. Really not too bad considering where they are coming from.

    I know it's been beat to death, but I'd still love to know what someone was smoking to think chroming the turret looked good.
    the grey part of the cannon, sure!!! the turret that becomes his entire upper right arm?:wtf: 

    I'd spend a LOT more $$$ on Henkei if it wasn't for the randomly applied chrome (and this comes from a chrome fan!)

    Awesome. I can't wait to have the final piece to my MP Seeker Collection. I've got a spot picked out for the three of them.

    Thanks for that info!

    i am getting Henkei Ironhide for Christmas, he looks very nice i cant stand the blue face on hasbro's. I hopefully will get Hound from Henkei because that looks very nice. I must see what Inferno looks like because the American one looks sharp already.

    I need a review on Ratchet, he doesn't seem awesome , but my mind can be changed the blu eon the windows of ratchet look super light..
