    I think Amazon JP is the one having brain farts. Everywhere else, his release date is still in February.

    Sunny's release date is still December.

    I would agree but, the once you order you can't cancel would lend some credence things have changed as it would 4 months out versus 6. the only bad thing is you cant consolidate all your orders. Two of my orderes the date has been moved up. Ill be getting a lot of packages after christmas from amazon jp

    Think of it as having an extended Christmas, with presents to yourself. :)

    Maybe Amazon japan is getting tired of Transformer collectors. So you order it, you're gonna buy it. End of discussion.
    I'm sure it must suck to try to cater to the whims of TF fans. If another site gets it in a day before you do, or offers it for $2 less, then drop pre-order, cancel, switch to other retailer. I've heard people on here talk like they wanna pull their eyeballs out of their head because they found a price $5 cheaper (for a $100 toy) than what they paid.

    Everything else still has the one week to release date. I get what you're staying though. I could see idiots screwing a good thing up for the rest of us.

    What's weird is that it's just this new batch of Transformers. The Diaclone DA-14 doesn't have any such preorder restriction.

    The only time I cancel orders is when I want to consolidate orders into one since Amazon has yet to have that feature.

    Yeah that's the boat I'm in especially when they play funny with the windows, but I still don't like doing that too much. It may just be a condition they instituted for Transformers

    Tell me about it. I'm much happier with the MPs that are packaged in bot mode. At least one less transformation that way, especially if it's one I'm leery of doing more than once or twice.

    Yeah, I really dig using Amazon. It only takes a few people sometimes to ruin a good thing.

    Oh if we were to count "AKOM decos" and "AKOM molds" just think of how many hundreds more G1 characters they could mine. The repaint pool would be limitless! Some of my favorite (as in most rubbish) AKOM moments:

    Minibot Bluestreak

    [​IMG]

    Deluxe Rumble

    [​IMG]

    Hey, we just might get an MP Bruticus after all, just be warned, his scale could be considered a little off

    [​IMG]

    Plenty of new 'Cons!

    [​IMG]

    More new 'Cons! Finally a Shockwave repaint: AKOM Shockwave!

    [​IMG]

    And finally (though there's about a million more lulzy screenshots to go): AKOM TM Cyclonus confirmed!

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, I don't like AKOM much; can't you tell? ;)  Don't even get me started on the mistakes they did on the X-Men & Batman episodes they handled...Transformers is just the tip of the iceberg...

    And this is why making mps cartoon accurate is bad.

    Wow, some of those shots looks really disastrous lol. Man, if they make a Masterpiece Kup, I hope he doesn't get a Targetmaster version where he's completely gray, like how his Legends toy originally looked.

    AKOM TM Cyclonus would really just be G2 Cyclonus, wouldn't it? It's pretty alright.

    I'm all for show-accuracy, so I disagree, but the show-accuracy should be based on Toei-produced designs, not the AKOM mistake-ridden ones.

    My one serious misgiving with MP-40: that this is more than just a one-off. An AKOM redeco here and there would be one thing; I just hope they don't start basing a lot of the G1 MPs on AKOM source material.

    Im guessing in these rare instance as there was no TM Hot Rod, Kup,or Blurr. They are billing these as western versions of the characters to get around that.

    It's definitely strange and will make me more likely to bundle things and keep a close eye on the terms of certain items.

    The only good thing about date changes is that when they change the date of something, like Amazon.com, they split the order and you get, at no extra charge, two (or more) shipments instead of just one. That happened with my Diabattles DA-06 and MP Grapple. I ordered them together to save shipping, and when the release date changed on one of them, they split the order and shipped Grapple first and didn't charge me an extra dime for shipping.

    Crap didnt know that I had canceled my original MP-40 and reordered. Well now I know, its a shame though you cant consolidate previous orders especially with delays or things releasing early.

    Love the maroon on this release, but I was really hoping for a toy deco. Maybe we'll get a Hasbro release one day.

    Akom was a hot mess when it came to TF. It's a shame that the episodes that served as events immediately following the well animated movie were so poorly handled animation-wise. Same deal with the Rebirth episodes that closed out the American Sunbow TF series. What ever happened to going out with a bang. smh.

    I'm curious to see screenshots of what AKOM did to Xmen and Batman.
