My MP grapple is going to be sent next week along with Cheetor.
Got my shipping notice for Grapple x2 and Cheetor. Should be arriving tomorrow.
That leg transformation is awesome.
He looks fantastic. The paint is great, the added leg detail looks good. Still feel the vehicle mode looks too gappy in the middle, but overall this looks like another home run.
Can't wait for him to arrive next week.
mines the same still
Shipped from Amazon Japan .
Shipped from "idkwhere" .
Mine shipped as well. Was stalking the emails to try to get it in before they closed for the weekend. Unfortunately, I won't be home to sign for it early next week, so I'll have to wait a day and pick it up at the PO.
Scheduled to be delivered Wednesday from Amazon Japan.
First look at MP Grapple Exclusive Ultra Magnus, very nice. Too bad, they still retain Prime on the boxart:
Same for mine as well.
Shipped from Amazon.jp with a Tuesday delivery date. All for ~$102 USD shipped!
Ok so this is strange. I ordered Grapple and DA-06 together to save on shipping. Expected date was March 24. Then DA-06 got pushed back a week, yet Grapple stayed the 24th. I emailed AJ and they said they would ship together and I wouldn't get charged any more than what it says. Now all of a sudden, Grapple is saying "preparing for shipment".. Are they really gonna send him separately? We shall see....
If he does ship, it means I'll be getting MP Grapple, Inferno, and Cheetor as well as Legends Ginrai and Lio Convoy, not to mention TR Optimus and Megatron.. all in the same week. Oh, and TCP should be shipping out my order with them which has DA-05, Legends Brainstorm, and the Headmasters 6 pack.
Did you order from Anime Export or Amazon Japan. As that's a screen grab of Amazon Japan and they'll just ship the items as they become available.
amzn-jp just shipped out my MP-35 Grapple.
estimate from dhl global-express is feb/28 delivery!
btw, 11,457y total including shipping...
Amazon Japan for Grapple and DA-06
AE for Ginrai and Lio Convoy
HLJ for Inferno and Cheetor.
And when you order something from Amazon (US or JPN) you can set it to ship in as few shipments as possible to save on shipping. That's how it worked with my last order there. It's only when DA-06's date changed it went wonky, though the price has never changed for shipping.
It's been a while since I've wanted a Takara MP this badly.
Somehow MP Grapple looks better than MP Inferno. It may be the added complexity in the lower legs, the added panel-lines, & added helmet/accessories. It's like how MP Ratchet looks better than MP Ironhide with his less diaper-looking crotch & cohesive-colored hip-panels which blend in. All four molds are OK, but I prefer Ratchet & Grapple over Ironhide & Inferno; it's all a matter of personal preference, of course.
Though the actual differences are subtle, my reaction to MP Grapple is far more favorable than it was to MP Inferno. I guess I've always liked G1 cartoon Grapple's character more, and that's influencing me. He was an architect, a builder, an artist, a mostly peaceful non-warrior, and, for the most part, a creator not a destroyer. Inferno was always brave, hot-headed, impatient, & eager for action, but sometimes seemed like Foghorn-Leghorn to me, a bit of a loud-mouth.
Just watched TCP's review and my god this toy is so good!Im surprised how different the transformation is....This one of the best realized MPs they ever made...No way this was designed by the same guy who designed the van bros
I might be weird (I am), but seeing my Takara MP Grapple ship to me straight from Tokyo, Japan feels.... pure.
Almost like he's coming straight from Cybertron itself.
