    Hey all,


    I really need to decide what to do, he is coming soon. As of now I an leaning towards kooltoyz, however I need two. Should I take my chances and get both from there, however I also have been considering fan2fan. Should I do one each or stock both in one store?

    Thanks for the input.

    What would be the benefit of ordering it from 2 different places? Wouldn't it just be easier to order 2 from the same place and pay 1 shipping charge? You would also get both at the same time.

    Then why not order them both from Fan2Fan if you don't think those will get seized, unlike the ones from Japan? I'm not even sure why you think they will get seized, you live in the US and the most they would do is x-ray the package to make sure there is nothing potentially harmful and see a robot. That is as long as Takara sticks to its claim of packaging it in robot mode... if not, then we worry... heheh.

    Wait until they show up and figure out what the situation is and THEN buy a 2nd one. Better safe than sorry, I say.

    I would have to say wait on both. You probably want the figure a great deal, and so do I, but judging from other MPs he isn't going to be hard to get if all goes well. If all doesn't go well then you didn't waste any money and get it seized. I know that's probably not the answer you really want, so if you are going to order two right away regardless, I would vote for 2 from the same place. I don't think they will be siezed but I could be wrong, either way I'd rather make one order.

    I'm curious but USD$218...does it include shipping? I didn't know that Megs would be so expensive! (I live in Asia by the way)

    the last time I checked their site it said they were sold out. Maybe they managed to up their quota since then?

    ok, thanks for the reply because if it was for 1 Megatron, I would have fainted! I live in Singapore and the pre-order price for him is around USD$65...some store went as long as USD$50...I kid you not...

    Yeah...I guess its sort of a good trade-off being that the working environment in SEA (South East Asia) is terrible with the long hours etc. I know of some importers who offered slightly below USD$50 too but before I get flooded with messages for "help", I would like to stress that only very close customers get such offers and the pieces are limited in stock.
