    Yep. I can totally get behind that reasoning too.

    And yeah, the details on the resin are super crisp. It's amazing what got dulled from sculpt to mold on these older BW toys.

    Unfortinatley, I don't think that's going to be possible because the back, head and front are all connected as a single piece.

    I know, but others have posted cheaper yen to which I thought included shipping. I guess I was mistaken. Could have sworn they showed a $10 difference that's all.

    Now I'm envisioning a stop motion transformation animation accompanied by a vomit sound effect as the toy turns itself inside-out,

    We both got it for the same base price, but I'm paying 8% tax on top of that because I'm in Japan.
    I get free shipping though, which is why my total is slightly less than yours.

    This doesn't look like something I'll be transforming a lot.

    If you look at it closely, the transformation is actually surprisingly straightforward. All you have to do is to pull the dino belly and legs down and wrap it around the dino head and arms and flipped-up dino back to become the robot chest and arms. Fold out the robot fists and extend the robot legs and voila! Robot mode.

    Argh I don't know whether to buy this from amazon.jp now for an expensive price (bloody import taxes), or wait till release date and see if Kapow Toys or TFS-Express will have any outside of pre-orders...

    Amazon JP tried to charge my card for 1 cent a couple of days ago and it was declined. Darn, hopefully they will not cancel my order.

    My bank blocked it. Thankfully my order has not been cancelled. I am going to make a call to the bank.

    Thanks for the heads up, I just noticed that $1 dollar charge as well. I just transferred the amount over from savings just in case they charge it early.

    I think this is not about having enough money in the account. My bank blocked it because it's coming from Japan.
