just checked my order status and it says "items being precessed for shipping" ummmm.....yay!
Too bad they're doing an orange cap for the U.S. or my order with them would not of been cancelled.
I cancelled my preorder as well, a first for HLJ.
Yeeeaah they charged my creditcard for it... Woohooo, hurry hurry damnit!!
Will it be possible to remove these orange caps without damaging Megatron? On the one hand, I could get an unaltered one with the risk of its confiscation, thus resulting in a loss of $100. On the other hand, I could get one with no worries, but it'd have the lame cap. If the cap can be removed, the better option becomes obvious...
Is this for the MP-05? And if so, will they be available at local Wal-marts? And also, can't you just recolor the cap or somethin'?
Has anyone heard anything from A3U???
Once some people get these and there is a better idea of whether the cap can be removed, I will show more interest.
Congrats to you though, hope it gets to you quickly...unlike an order I placed 2 weeks ago for something that shipped today.(different store)
I would say yes it is.
That would be nice, but no.
Probably could, but since nobody outside of TakaraTomy know what the cap is really going to look like on it, it may not look so good painted.
I hope TFSource and the rest of the online sites get there's ASAP.
Looks like I'll have to summon that collector guy and see his pick on this thing, cap an all. It looks pretty cool just 'cause it turns into a handgun. Thanks for the download AutobotSDG.
A friend of mine has been in contact with one of the higher ups at HLJ and the cap they are putting on is supposedly just a simple slip on cover meant just to bypass customs. I guess we'll find out for sure in a week or so.
Either way, I'd MUCH rather be guaranteed that one would reach my house safely with an orange cap than not have Megatron at all(or confiscated)!
i live in canada so mine should be unmodified (hopefully) lol
Not yet, but if HLJ is just now starting to ship theirs, I'm sure Spencer -- being in Canada -- hasn't got his in to ship out yet.
BTW. I also noticed HLJ.com now has two listings for Masterpiece Megs.
MP-05 Masterpiece Megatron (which is what I preordered originally)
MP-05 Masterpiece Megatron (Orange-capped for USA customers...which is what my order was changed to)
I also haven't recieved a shipping confirmation yet.
The caps are being glued. They have specifically stated "not to try and put the toy in warm water as it may damage the plastic". Which I think is supposed to mean "We're using permenant glue. You cannot remove it without damage".
Any other US folks get the payment request today?
I guess that means my orange capped Megs is coming soon.
I'm pretty sure that means "Here's how to get the cap off."
