Board member Dirgeimus Prime notified us of an e-mail he just recieved from Bill of JRToyworld: 'Hello, I'm sorry to say that I've cancelled your preorder for Masterpiece Megatron. Below is a copy of what my vendor sent to me regarding recent news on the figure: "Hi Bill, I am afraid the decision has been made that in order to comply with US Federal Law all US-bound shipments of Megatron will have the plugs installed. Even though he will be in robot mode, we have learned there will likely be pics of him in gun mode on the box, which could cause problems at customs resulting in a shipment being impounded if there is not a plug. Also, Takara has apparently decided to do a "US safe" release through Hasbro. This could well mean that they and/or Hasbro will alert US Customs to be on the lookout for "counterfeit" merchandise. So, sorry to say it, but all Megatrons to the US will get plugs. Boxes will not be in "unopened" condition." I think its better to cut my losses now and not even attempt to import the figure due to the potential problems. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. Regards, Bill Egerstaffer Your order has been updated to the following status. New status: Canceled' Keep in mind, this IS still considered rumor at this time, since its not straight from Takara themselves.
