    The announcement of a new possible MP Optimus Prime mold v3 would be a kick in the nards after getting this figure, wouldn't it? :D

    Nope. Would plan on getting V3 either way. So I’m happy regardless. Cheers to those who get him.

    I'll have to gauge my own reaction after I get this figure and if and when a new MP OP v3 gets announced (especially if this possible new Optimus gets repainted as a white Ultra Magnus that works with trailer armor). :lol

    Well, my parents arrived to Japan tonight and will stay with me for 3 months. They were shocked WTF when they saw since the last year they came, that I bought over 100 Transformers in that time.

    Now 7/11 Optimus Prime is coming tomorrow, and it won't help my cause. But hey, they know I work hard for my funds. Will be nice to have this rare fella when he arrives. Although he reminds me of a cross between mint chocolate chip and the ice blue Kool-Aid I drank.

    Anime Export has this on my order page “We are checking availability for this item. When restocked we will notify you by email. If unavailable we will refund you in full.”

    Is this normal for items coming in? I ordered on the first day. I’m gonna be pretty bummed if they can’t fulfill preorders.

    I wouldn't say its normal for 'normal' items, but I don't think this is a normal item.

    I have never used AE, but it is my understanding that they listed this item with the intention of reselling whatever stock they could order directly from 7-11 (since it is an exclusive that was only available through their stores). It may have been more complex than this, but I assume that they had several employees place orders from 7-11 with the intention of reselling (unless they had some sort of 'deal' with 7-11 for distribution, which I find unlikely since they also offer TTMall exclusives sometimes). They may not have been able to order enough to fill demand. Hopefully, they will fill orders in a "first come, first served" fashion, so if you got your order in soon enough, you may get one. But there's no way to know if they got 100, 10, or even 2 as 'stock'.

    This is all conjecture, so perhaps someone with a purchase history with AE could chime in as well.

    So does anyone know what the actual retail price for this is if one were to walk into a 7-11 in Japan and buy one?

    I contacted AE just out of curiousity. Thy confirmed that all preorders will be honored. And they’ll update from awaiting stock to in stock in 4 hours or so. I’m shipping MPM-3, MP-40, and MP-711 all together :)

    Same here. Going to pick this during my lunch break.

    I'm not certain it works that way. I believe that preorders are necessary to ship to individual addresses or to certain 7-Elevens for made-to-order pickups well in advance.

    I'm not so sure you'll find these figures just chilling on 7-Eleven shelves as extra stock in Japan, although I could be wrong and that could very well be the case.

    In any case, I got charged the same as GamerLingual which is 27,000 yen (this includes 8% consumption tax). The extra 270 yen is for COD (cash on delivery) fee.

    Got mine too. He's a hefty one. I'm keeping mine MISB for now. March will be a busy month and I sadly don't have time to mess with him yet even if I wanted to.

    That would be annoying as hell. Good to hear that AE will be honoring all pre-orders.
