    The more I think about the WST Dinobots, the more I'm on the fence about them. All the releases I've had so far have been loose, cheap, and can barely hold a pose; especially both of my G2 Flamethrowers, which were broken in the same place (a front leg spring).

    And, no, I'm not trying to spark another argument about the quality of KOs and/or unofficial Hasbro/Takara toys; I'm just saying they've been a let down.

    It's really made me think twice about whether or not it's worth completing them.

    Somehow "$239.95" and "unbelievably low price" sounds like an oxymoron to me. ¬_¬

    I got the MP-4 Prime. Those things have been busting up well over $400 on Ebay. Comparatively, this is a deal.

    Also preordered Omega and the new Minibots while I was at it. Bye-bye PayPal balance!

    Still waiting on the 2 WST Dinobots, Quintessons, and WST stocking stuffers. I absolutely REFUSE to get anything else until those come in!!




    Of course lack of funds kinda helps with that decision also.:lol

    I got MP-04. I was hoping that they would have gone down in price after the movie hype. Since that is not happening, I'm not going to blow another chance at finally getting this thing. Its still very expensive but still much better than what people are willing to pay on Ebay. I feel bad for those who are currently bidding on MP-04 for hundreds of dollars, though. Actually, no I don't, lol.

    I found the MP-04 to be a no brainer as I don't have one and $400 pm ebay is crazy.

    Thats the lowest price I've seen for MP-04 and its worth it. I need this figure. I have the 20th anniversary one and would sell it if this one should happen to come into my hands. Who doesnt want it?

    Me. Had it (actually all the MPs at one point) and sold it. Every one I've seen doesn't transform correctly, won't stand correctly, or feels like it could break. On top of the fact that they just look mutantly huge next to my other toys.

    I have no love for MPs anymore. I still have my Megatron (and his accessory kit) for sale if anyone wants it.

    I purchased the MP-04 because it's been at the top of my list for the longest time. And this is the cheapest I've seen the price go for the longest time. I'll be happy when it ships.

    Also, I purchased using a credit card. Should I have gotten a confirmation email from the site yet?

    I haven't gotten one, but I wouldn't worry. I've never had problems with them before.
