    I wouldn't advise anyone to buy MP Megatron. Nearly lost a finger while Transforming him (which is why I threw it into a trash can where it belongs!).

    0 plans to transform the figure. Lame as that is, it's still a must have for me. If it comes packaged in alt mode this time you'll hear me scream wherever you are.

    Good god, $17.95 apiece for Deluxes like Scourge and Kup? Plus shipping? Talk about gouging... :(

    The way I see it, you could potentially spend that much on gas or time not spent earning money looking anyway. They're, what, $12.99 in store plus tax? Not really that much of a profit margin...

    They buy the figures by the case. Which means they end up with figures that that don't have the same potential to sell. So the price is higher for the sought after figures. They aren't gouging, they just can't take a loss on every case they buy. Other online stores use this practice as well. Don't knock it until you've tried it. Either pay a couple bucks extra or find out the hard way that retail stores could care less about missing a wave and enjoy the after market prices.

    I want to get that MP Megatron, but I'm waiting until it is instock. I don't want to preorder.

    Does anybody know some parts of it will be die-cast metal?

    It's the same as the previous release. It's a new run of the previously released toy, down to the packaging. So, packaged in robot mode, and same level of die cast content as the original (just the spine, mostly).

    Yeah after years of toy hunting in stores, I have to agree, Gas + Time + cumulative wear and tear on a car = A few bucks.

    That said, I'll hope to see it at retail, and not make any special trips, or get it from HTS when they have them in stock.

    I just don't have the time or energy to do actual toy hunting these days.

    Hell, I go to valvoline, and pay a premium to have my oil change done in 15 or so minutes without even having to get out of my car. I put a high value on how I spend my time.

    Well I have to watch my sending these days cause everything including GAS is going up so I don't do much toy hunting these days and I don't see my self picking that up again because GAS prices keep going UP so I order online to save myself time but I shop around online for the best prices.

    If Masterpiece Megatron were purchased from TFSource for delivery to the U.S., is this piece still considered a problem for U.S. customs? Or, is Big Bad Toy Store one of the only legal ways to still get this in the U.S.?
