    Wow. That price isn't too bad.

    But I'll wait for Skywarp and TC in this mold.

    I was gonna skip this one since I already have the iGear Sunstorm, but the limited edition aspect of it and the $75 difference in price after shipping between BBTS and RK convinced me to order it from RK while it was available. I've given advice to buy early on anything like this, so I figured I would take my own advice.

    Now I'm just going to have to wait on the regular edition MP-11 to go on clearance so I can pick it up as well.

    I have every single official MP release except for the the Grimlock slight recolor. I even have all of the Hasbro releases of all of the MPs. I also have all three iGear Coneheads and their Sunstorm. I figure that with 9 versions of the original SS mold that I have enough, but I just couldn't pass up the e-Hobby Sunstorm, but I can wait a bit on the original prototype MP-SS. I'm sure I will pick it up sometime though.

    Yeah, that's a pretty big drop from $250 each. I wonder if BBTS' price will drop over the next few days.

    Looks like a Hegemon preorder is there too. Hundred bucks though.

    Yeah that's a much more encouraging price, though looking at things like Takara Unicron and United Stepper have nearly desensitized me to that lol. I know it's completely without precedent for Sunstorm but I wonder how a more Balrog-like deco of him would look. Then again, that sort of visual is more the reserve of Dreamweave's version of The Fallen.

    I too will be waiting to see if/how BBTS drops their prices, knowing from experience that their preorder postage prices are a little higher than otherwise. That said, perhaps I shouldn't wait too long, haha!

    Glad to see a drop in price. It still doesn't look as good as my igear sunstorm. The coronation Gear in all the pics throws me off too.

    Ok this now gets really Offtopic; and you can call me uninformed or whatever... but actually... why Sunstorm has this Corona-set with him. Is there any G1 reference I donĀ“t know?

    Takara, please stop. How about making new masterpieces instead of using the same one all over again. This is why I buy 3rd party. I can't wait for Ironhide and Ratchet from iGear.

    They have already announce MP12 as Sideswipe,hence they need more time to design another new mold.
