    Awesome! I've always really regretted not picking up Takara Metroplex when I had the chance. Hopefully this drives his prices down a bit.

    I would like to see of there are any significant difference between this version (LG-EX) & previous one released under Generations (TG-23).

    Damn. Not sure if I should buy this or not. I already have a customized Hasbro Metroplex.

    I have my Reprolabeled SDCC 'Plex, but this is great for those who haven't gotten one yet!

    Anyone here preorder from takaratomymall.jp before ? I'm curious if they deliver to the U.S. and if they charge immediately or wait until the item ships.

    You have to use a forwarding service. Best bet is to see if one of the domestic dealers are getting any. He's going to be a headache to ship on top of the service fee forwarding services use.

    Maybe this will drive down prices and I can finally get 'Plex.

    They ship to Japanese addresses only.

    Payment is when the item is ready to ship.

    If only this was the SDCC version, now that one I'm mad for passing on. Oh well, I guess my Hasbro version will be sticking around for the Long Haul.

    Damn. Excited, depressed, sad and relieved at the same time. Excited its coming out again, depressed because shipping cost is not encouraging, sad due to TTmall and forwarding hassles, and relieved because i'll most likely lose interest in him again so I may pass by time January/18 rolls around. I had the HK-AGC version and the previous TT release. Sold because lack of space plus it'd be nice to get some $ back. Then regretted it. Twice. I'm such a dumba$$. 3rd times stupid if I get this? Or... should I imagine with all my incredible mind powers, that I have the re-release already sitting in storage (because ongoing lack of display space issues) and that by January i'd be sick of it, and voila! No need to list for resale, and no need to wait for cash.

    As much as I am a completist of the legends line(only missing 4, springer, lazerbeak, ravage and lgex rattrap)
    And although I sold generations toys to get the legends repaints (rhinox, waspinator), doing this for metroplex might be a little too expensive...
    6 months to see what is the best deal on this.
