    Granted, the Japanese retail price is still higher then the US retail price. 2600 yen is still almost $10 more than the US cost of $15-17

    Kup just looks better every time we see him, so happy I waited for TT on this one.

    Because they put up the toys in a little action scene? Hasbro has done that a few times in the past few years, too.

    You didn't see the volume of dioramas Takara did this year, did you?

    So is the retail price of Hasbro versions of TFs everywhere in the world except the US.

    Because the Japanese figures included a titanmaster and now a targetmaster, which narrows the gap considerably.

    I saw the photos for the entire display for the movies, they are nice.

    But I've also seen a lot nice displays from Hasbro over the past few years, too, so I find the idea that they never put any effort into presentation to be ignorant.

    I could but the shipping cost from China usually doesn't work out, I'm sure you will be able to find somebody local to sell you Hot Rod sans Targetmaster. With POTP Hot Rod coming, a lot of people just want the targetmaster

    But that Kup is beginning to really look perfect. I have almost replaced all my TR with Takara... they are just so much prettier!

    Still SUPER Amazed with that Legends Kup. Wow what a great looking rendition of the character.

    I don't think it could be more perfect.

    I'm looking forward to Kup next month. He's the only one I pre-ordered.

    Interesting that he started out grey, then a nice grey-teal, and now he's almost turquoise!

    That Kup is perfect. The prototype colors were too damn dark grey so I didn't preorder it but these new pics are a different color. Just perfect.

    I was going to buy Kup from Kapow Toys this weekend, but they sold out. I was in two minds because I already have Hasbro Kup but Takara's is much better.

    Part of me wants to back out on Hot Rod because of the Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime we now know is coming.

    Part of me wants to back out because the exchange rate has been rising, it was 1:1.07 yesterday. Hopefully it will get better there are alot of LG and MP preorders in November and December.
