    Yeah it did. Nothing against BBTS but I prefer to use the chosen prime or captured prey and it's only a $10-15 difference. That and I know they all (BBTS included) have good customer service means that I'll go domestic and wait patiently. But at least i have an Amazon Japan account now.

    It's only a couple dollars cheaper now, but at the same time you don't have to mess with an orange plug.

    That's the price as late as two weeks ago. I know because I ordered mine back then. The price rocketed up sometime late last week I think, so i am glad I got my order in.

    I thought so. In my haste to order a second one, I cancelled my previous preorder so I can order two together. Well I didn't realize it had gone up:banghead: !

    Do any of you intend to get a Second Megatron? I hope to get one on sale maybe at my local Collector store. Hopefully the sale in the Summer or Boxing Day this year.

    I guess you will live precariously through people who'll be getting this the first week of April.

    My Amazon.jp order says I'll have it between 4/4 and 4/5.

    Yeah I hope NY are wrong on their release date estimate, just thought I'd post what is on their site.

    Cheaper is cheaper and I'm pretty sure I'll have it on or before the US based shops get theirs out to customers. Plus, if the price drops anytime from now until April 1st, I'll get the lesser price. Sounds like a win to me.

    Yeah but the Yen has been going up quite a bit the last few days alone. If the current price in Amazon.jp does not go down, it's possible that your final price might be very close to what you would have paid in the States anyway. But yeah, you'll probably get it before people in the US.

    Looks like the barrel can be positioned in different ways.

    For anyone who's bought from Amazon JP, does DHL require signature confirmation?

    Yes, but if you register at the DHL site for tracking updates and such, you can sign an electronic release when the package is in transit. That's what I did with Grapple anyway.

    They say they do, but I've never had to sign for a single package before.

    That said, Megatron is a much higher priced item than Inferno or MTB Soundwave, so he might require one. As of right now, though, based on past experience they do not actually require one.

    If that changes, I'll keep everyone updated.

    My MB-04 Shockwave required a signature.

    The repositioning is due to the way it needs to move in order to transform properly. But, same as Magnus, you're free to call it an alternative.
    What I'd really like to see is the barrel positioned under his right arm like in "More Than Meets The Eye, Part 3".

    DHL's website DHL | Global | English I think I entered the tracking number and it allowed me to change the signature requirement.
