    Do you honestly think repaints is anything new for MP's and Transformers in general? Have you been in a coma? Look at all the Datsun, Lambo, Seeker Jet, MP-10, MP-13, MP-22, MP-25, and all the other repaints we've gotten in the MP line since 2012. It's not because TT has run out of ideas, it's because they're making the most use out of their existing molds and they're rolling out Diaclone and other past versions of these toys. It makes perfect business sense because there is plenty of demand for many of them. They're out there, but no one is forcing anyone to buy them. For me, I get to pick the extra one's I like and simply enjoy all this for what it is.

    I don't mind giving them my $$$ for this or the red one. Hopefully they'll release MP-39+ soon, along with the red one. :)  Sentinel Blaze will still be in my Hasui-oriented collection along with Cordon and Sunsurge (that is until MP-39+ rolls out). Everything else is just an added bonus. :)

    Nah, they’re just releasing repaints and retools to keep cashflow going while they’re working on some awesome new stuff.

    By the way, your own screen name is a repaint.

    Are YOU in Coma or what!! Who doesn't know that they are doing all these repaints
    Sportimus, WHO doesn't know that what TakaraTomy is doing is their marketing strategy which is to reuse all the existing mold to the fullest, that is why I said they are just concentrating on repaints. Sportimus, JUDGE others ONLY when you are PERFECT which I don't think you are PERFECT at all as a person, so Don't Judge ME

    Prove me wrong does not mean You have to be sarcastic to someone whom you don't even know in actual life as in saying "Are you in coma" ?? Earth is round, what goes round, will come back to you, this is called Karma. So now my turn to say him "Are you in coma"? I don't think that feels good, so you will take it easy?? Sorry no offence please but i don't feel good and i won't take it easy,Noobimus Prime

    Looks like I ordered from AE too soon. Ah well, he’s being shipped with other items so not a huge deal with shipping cost.

    Amazon WILL EVENTUALLY carry all official MP releases, except exclusives. It's happened to every single one since Megatron or even before that?

    To panic and place an order on crap places that take a month to ship and can't even communicate properly is, IMO, a waste of time. Even if shipping discounts are being considered because you are ordering 100 items.

    Amazon will ship faster than ANY US store, great CS and an unbeatable price 150% of the time on MP's.

    Bezos loves Transformers.

    So far I think not. The stock images are the same we had seen before, but I think the 3D views are new.
