    Anyone that already preordered will get an unmodded one and from now on if you preorder, it'll be for a modded one. Anyone else order from here? I've been using them for a couple of years now and I have two Megatrons that'll be finding their way to my house, without an orange barrel.

    They couldn't secure anymore unmodded Megatrons so unless they can get be sure they can get more of the unmodded ones, they'll only be taken order from this point for modded ones. If you already ordered from them, don't worry. Wait and see if they can get anymore unmodded ones of just order from someone else. My guess is that Curt's supplier presold out so he couldn't get anymore than what he already had. So, he has a secondary supplier that only has modded ones and that's what he'll be filling orders with now. He posted on tfsource.com yesterday so you check it yourself.

    Hmm, maybe I should have pre-ordered, BAH I am still going to wait untill the dust settles on this whole fiasco.

    He does say on the site he may be able to secure some more unmodded ones and will post when he knows. I would like to see what it looks like with the mod.

    Fuck this, I'm going to get one off eBay when I know who's actually going to be able to get hold of unmutilated ones.

    Just did a quick search on ebay for some preorders. A Japan seller said he was selling them unmodified, but he wasn't responsible for what happens to it when it comes to the States. It could be seized, or whatever.

    Man, what does someone have to do to get a damn unmodded Megs!

    Ahhh sweet, semi-confirmation that they will be unmodified. Oh yeah, say it's your birthday (b/c it is), uh huh, uh huh.

    *does a stupid happy dance*

    I still fail to understand why these guys are still being modified if he's shipping in robot mode, seems completely ridiculous, Im glad I had already preordered with them though.

    I already pre-ordered from TF Source, yay! What's so bad about the mod though? It's just an orange tip, yes?

    Think about it; you'll have a Walther P-38 with a bright orange tip on the barrel. You'll also have a Megatron with a bright orange bit sticking up from behind him, pretty much above his head. I sure as hell don't want that much

    Seized by customs my ASS. Go catch a criminal. I'll drive to Canada to buy one and bring it across myself if I have to.
