    No problem :thumb  There was a lot going on at the time news-wise so it's pretty easy for the staff to miss the odd thing like that.

    Also, for what it's worth TFW has for the most part been misreporting MP-29+ as a toy-accurate version. It's actually an anime repaint, as per Takara's website.

    I think the new background got me confused. Thanks for the clarification on the MP-29 as anime repaint. Our first reports were about a toy-accurate version, and some stores also used that. :thumb

    Wait to see if it opens up at this point. If worse comes to worse they normally open up after release. May not take that long though BW Megatron should be going up soon, so order might open back up

    So HandlesIT placed an order for shipment to the USA 17 days ago and now they've closed the option to ship to USA that fast?

    Sad but I think I’m gonna cancel my preorder on this guy. Just doesn’t generate any excitement for me like the upcoming Generations exclusives, Beast Wars masterpieces, and Fans toys next offering or Cyclonus, Sixshot, And Mindwipe. Something is amiss and I really don’t like the look for this guy or Exhaust. Delta Magnus looks magnificent. This guy? The face kills it even tho I understand it’s supposed to be truly him.

    I don't have Sunstreaker because I never really cared for the character. This release has me all kinds of excited because I love the deco and will finally be able to experience the mold.
    Considering I'm moving away from mainline and don't collect 3P, this one was a no-brainer for me.

    Same, perhaps so more since I started a Diaclone line buildup.

    That said no news on this eh?

    I’ll get him if he’s below 10,000 Yen including used. My money is going towards two Beast Wars Megatron masterpieces

    to this day i am still confused to why some people hated Diaclone mold versions thinking they are a waste of time and money, as in saying the most important history of where the birth of the Transformers brand originated from, you know, one of them being Diaclone, basically they are saying the history lesson of the brand is a waste of time, hell, Bill Gates creating stuff is a waste of time, if they hate it then don't buy it, just ignore it, no one forces them to buy them like a hostage at gun point.

    I don't like the look of the face. The design isn't for me and that's on me. Yea it's the granddaddy model but it isn't for me and I'm completely fine with what I choose. If no one agrees with it, that's on them and I'm good with Dinobot, Anime Prowl, Anime Shockwave, and 2 copies of BW Megatron. I appreciate what I will get and what I already have in my collection.

    also is the story changed if Cordon became one of the original cast of Autobots the original G1 cartoon and comics? people will buy him because he is one of the main characters thus relate to? and instead, for example Sunstreaker is the one that is the Diaclone not picked as a character by Hasbro, will people hate Sunstreaker because he does not appear in the G1 cartoon? him being a waste of budget and space to make a new version of his toy?
