    Same here. $221 shipped. My Dinobot's dropped to $191 shipped as well, so about a $30 difference.

    Ridiculous...for Megs, BBTS is charging $320 and HLJ $260 + (probably) $50-60 shipping.

    Dumb question... What does "AJ" stand for? Which store is that ?

    I’m now at 20,500. Better than expected and am happy. Megatron at 25,330 with tax. Better save all my Yen for the two MP43 figures and my one Dinobot.

    US retailers definitely make a good margin. The buyers would throw the usual excuse of having good service. But we have good service too from AJ. And you can't make an argument that Japan is a 3rd world country or what have you because comparing US and Japan, it's actually US that looks like a third world country.

    I'm curious as to the shipping method. Was that price for SAL? If that was EMS, that's great.

    My experience is that for anything over $200/20,000 Yen, HLJ requires EMS shipping, which typically runs around $50 for something like this. Maybe the numbers are different now or I'm a bit off. I'm guesstimating a bit.

    Regardless, for US buyers, Amazon's price with shipping is $40 less than HLJ's price without shipping.

    I always loved "I don't rock and roll; I burn!' myself. Definitely went into school the next day saying that to everyone regardless of the fact it was essentially gibberish without the set-up and no one else watched Beast Wars to get the reference. Fucking losers!

    Terrorsaur is just so ridiculously complicated to figure out that I have to assume his beast mode will be super chunky. His bot bits may split open like Dinobot's thighs appear to in order to reveal beast flesh and conceal the metallic areas but there's no way Terrorsaur can ever be as flat as his show model. The wings will mostly be just wings, meaning they won't have a use in bot mode; some parts may form his chest but I'm thinking the majority will just have to fold away into a big ol' backpack.

    I wager that out of all the MP beast modes, Terorsaur would suffer the most for the sake of an accurate robot mode. I mean hell, even Terrorsaur's red coloring in robot mode is more saturated than his beast mode.

    You could also have Megatron, with his removable parts off, lying on the shelf with Optimus Primal over him, beating the crap out of him. :lolol

    I don’t see your point at all.

    One is a Transmetal - your point is moot by that fact alone.

    Neither of them look like a piece of shit. They're very different in design and style, but they're both awesome.
    Personally I prefer MP-43, but I'm getting both nontheless. We, as BW fans, should be very happy that we're getting so much love lately.

    If you're in to knock offs, so be it, but keep it in the KO section.
