    That's actually a really good idea. One I try to avoid due to the cost of these things, but in some cases, yeah! I think Dinobot is worth it!

    I'm getting two myself, but mainly one for display and one for play. I usually try to avoid buying doubles of figures unless they have significant differences for a number of reasons. Price is obviously a huge factor. However, beyond that, I realized that if I were to buy two figures to display in both modes, it will completely remove the need for me to transform the figure at all since I can already appreciate both modes at the same time, going against the point of Transformers in the first place...

    It's the clone you shouldn't leave alone.

    Uh, fellas...https://www.amazon.co.jp/トランスフォーマー-マスターピース-MP-41-ダイノボット-ビーストウォーズ/dp/B0778N4FXN/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1528914019&sr=8-1&keywords=mp-41

    "Ships from and sold by Amazon.jp."

    That said, I'm seeing it, but if you're not, and if you're in another country (not the U.S.), I wonder if there are restrictions in place or something like that.

    Jesus Murphy, even without shipping it costs almost more for me now than HLJ with EMS shipping.

    About the same for me...HLJ might be a bit more with EMS, actually. Why the price drop yesterday was so welcomed.

    Never saw it out of stock when I checked throughout yesterday or today. Maybe it's the timing. *shrug*

    So, was the reason for Hasbro asia’s cancellation ever confirmed? Last posts I remember mentioned QC standards or something to that effect

    Haven’t heard anything yet. If it helps, just make sure your seller accepts returns to protect your investment. Amazon JP is good like that. Sorry for not knowing about it.

    I don’t think anything was ever confirmed regarding that. QC is one guess; price maybe another, also the claws or sword may be too sharp therefore Hasbro Asia don’t won’t to deal with complaints or attempted lawsuits from any parent dumb enough to get a Masterpiece figure for their child. No one knows for certain yet.

    I’ll say I’m glad we’ve finally got pics where Dinobot is fully tabbed together and looks totally solid. At previous shows his arms were popping apart or his side and chest panels weren’t closed fully but now they’ve actually got him perfect. It just took me awhile to notice due to Megatron fully stealing my gaze.
