    There is no die-cast, although that would be nice I don't feel it is missing anything. The only show feature not implemented in the toy is the cutting disc hands like a circular saw. The plastic is really high quality, no swirls and very shiny.

    BBTS has a preorder for $120. I got it for $83 shipped on eBay. Chimungmung has it for $99 + shipping.

    O-o-oh... The photos don't do it justice - but this video review is what made it desirable for me again. Thank you. :)

    Not really, it's made by the same guy who made Delicate Warrior, Igear is merely selling it.

    Got my Nightbird some days ago from E-Bay. All I can say - if they need more money for developing transforming MGT-s, I don't mind them doing Beta and Alana the same style like this one. I'd surely grabbed them too. :)

    I took a few photos of my Nightbird with a couple of figures. I also decided to add a Decepticon to the upper left chest.

    Enjoy,

    I just bought one of these off of eBay after seeing some great photos of her with Hegemon... gotta say that even though the figure itself looks pretty cool, I'm a little thrown that they couldn't find a better way to keep her sais on her forearms. Granted I read on BBTS that they're plated gold, but still...

    Anyway, given the direction the Masterpiece line is taking, I look forward to adding her to my collection. I think she'll fit right in.

    Did they change the packaging on this toy? The one I saw looked like this:

    Yeah, right so I got in mine today and though the eBay listing had the above packaging, mine came in the blackout box. I assume what you've listed and that seller used were just prototype packaging and that to avoid legal issues [and, more likely, cut costs] MGT went with the blackout box art. That said... or speculated, the figure is pretty damn neat.
