    Wow, the price keeps rapidly decreasing. I'm at 23,000 yen with tax now, exactly. Started out as 26,355 yen. Better just keep on course with this preorder.

    I totally agree with this philosophy. Why don't you want more figures? 10 bucks here, 10 bucks there suddenly you have one more figure.

    I’ve been debating about canceling my Dinobot simply thinking about the many more figures I could buy with that money. Can’t do it though. Dinobot just looks too perfect. I have to have him. Especially after seeing Megatron in color.

    Holy crud. The price has now dropped to 20,894. Maybe I’ll get a second one for this price. Better make sure I got the funds

    Wow, I just noticed on Amazon JP, my subtotal dropped to 18,821 Yen, net 21,353 Yen. (from 19,271 Yen subtotal). Nice!

    Can't wait for this guy!

    Thanks, I just checked my PO and noticed that, too. Actually just placed the order yesterday. Between yesterday and today, the total price dropped about 6000 Yen. Ridiculous(ly awesome).

    Does that mean that the price can swing back up, too?

    Also, anyone know if the MP-32 reissue will be listed on Amazon.jp, or are we stuck with the usual suspects for that (BBTS, TF Source, etc.)?

    With Primal, Dinobot, and Megatron, I'm thinking of starting up an MP menagerie.

    Wait for Amazon. It won’t go back up. It’s lowest preorder price guaranteed. Not highest price

    Same for everyone else, so don't feel excluded. The guys above didn't get emails, they were checking the website constantly.

    If there's a drop you won't get it til after its paid for , you're get an email telling how much you saved from your original order price.

    I got two different prices for my two Dinobot preorders: 20500 yen and 20894 yen. I'm confused. Is this good to you guys? @_@

    If you placed them at different times, the price may have dropped lower before you placed the second preorder was placed

    C'mon guys, MP BW Dinobot is old news. Who cares? No one. Let's all move on to what REALLY matters! MP BW MEGATRON!










    Put down the flame throwers. I'm only joking. :) 

    The more I look at MP Dinobot, the more interesting he becomes. I can't wait to get my hands on him and actually transform this fella. I bet it will be pretty ingenious to say the least. No doubt he'll have panels, but that's pretty much a given considering his look in robot mode is like an inside-out Raptor on parts of his body. This will be an impressive addition to join Primal and Cheetor on the MP BW shelf for sure. The only real difficult decision to make is whether to display him in Dino mode or Robot mode? Hmmm...

    That’s why I’m getting two. To have one in Dino and the other in bot mode. Solves that dilemma quickly

    It's still available from Amazon, though the price is back up. With shipping to California (where I'm at), the total is 26509 Yen. Thank god I placed the order yesterday. A $50 difference is nothing to sneeze at.

    That said, I wouldn't be surprised to see more price drops in the future to lure in more sales.

    Price on mykombini is ludicrous right now. ¥30,240. If there’s a version of me in a parallel universe who’s only just now learning of the existence of MP Dinobot, I have to wonder if he’d pay that to double dip... Definitely not if he’s been burning through cash the way I have lately.

    SOME are claiming it's still available on Amazon, but it's not for me. I have the item open in another window, and it says "AVAILABLE FROM THESE SELLERS"....There does not appear to be a way to pre-order from Amazon Japan.
    I've clicked on all links (Click here for details of availability, 8 NEW from..., Available from these sellers) and there doesn't appear to be any way to pre-order at this time.
    This is becoming annoying and frustrating.
