Yay. My picture was showed
The size of MP43 Beast Megatron is even slightly bigger than MP10, that is amazing
Although I was a big Beast Wars fan and although I’ve got quite a few BW figures stashed away, back when they were announced, I wasn’t very excited about the prospect of BW Masterpieces. Back when their pre-orders went up, I seriously doubted ordering all three of the first ‘main’ releases: Optimus Primal, Cheetor and Dinobot. In the end of course I did get them.
However, I had no doubts about ordering Megatron; he was always my favorite character in BW, and I’ve actually got two orders in with Amazon.co.jp and with Anime-Export.com. And to be honest, now I have Dinobot in hand and I can experience how amazing he turned out to be in hand, my expectations for Megatron have just increased so much more! His release date can’t come soon enough.
Megatron is looking even better than Dinobot if I'm honest, look at that beast mode..where's the robot kibble!
I'd be more impressed about that fact if his original toy didn't already do that, or at least 90% of it. It's a lot easier to achieve when most of his beast mode is still visually present in his robot mode, unlike Dinobot, where practically none of it is.
From a technical standpoint, I'm less impressed with Megatron than I am Dinobot because he's pretty much just a refinement of the original Ultra Megatron. Visually, though, he's a massive improvement over that figure, and represents everything about how I wished the original toy would look when I was a kid, with the T-Rex mode being magnitudes better. Even when I was young, I was disappointed at how stumpy the original toy was compared to how lean, powerful, and fierce the T-Rex mode looked on the show.
Oh yeah I'm not claiming he'll be the technical marvel that Dinobot is in that respect, Im just very impressed that both modes are so clean and tidy. I am technically impressed with the backpack, it's so well packed down and similar to its appearance in the show. I agree thought, it's the beauty, proportions and size of both modes that have me most impressed.
Just paid off my entire Amazon Jp order!!!
When January comes, I am either a genius or an idiot.
How can you pay early? I’d love to pay my Diaclone preorders off, but it appears that they’ll charge my card when the item ships.
That damn paint job and finish. Unbelievable IMO. I was astonished to see it.
In @oku you trust. You buy Amazon Gift Certificates, and then you apply to your order. Quite simple really.
@oku's great! Too bad I missed his explanation of this. I may try it.
Thanks to you both.
Yah man, that T-rex mode just look so swesome
It's hard to make Barney look less than awesome.
Can anyone find the stop motion on their facebook page? I don’t use them and it doesn’t appear on the front page anymore. It was a atop motion of all the maximals transforming at the same time
Where can you buy those certificates?
I just paid off 3 Diaclone book preorders from Amazon Japan, and 1 TF book preorder from Amazon US with their respective in house gift card program. It was pretty great to be honest. I don't have to worry about keeping enough money in my separate account for the next few months. I will always pay off my preorders. Pay it and mark the calendar, and forget it.
Big thanks to @divinecomedy and @oku for the heads up.
The correct phase is to load your Amazon gift card.
click on "account & lists" under "Hello, @franpincho". Then click on Gift Cards. Next Click on "Reload your balance". Put the exact desired amount.
After this you can view your order. Makes changes to the order. And click on 'apply balance' to the order next to payment option. You've already undoubtedly figured it out by now haha. But just incase...
Is 25,887 the average price he’s been floating around? That’s 300.00 Canadian.
Just wondering if I missed the window here.
It only charges you 0.01 or something to check the credit card? Do I remember that correctly?
I know this has been explained 100 times already so I apologize.
