    Since the Mighty Megatron has now been released and is showing up on eBay, I wanted to start a thread for info on people's experience importing this figure to the US.

    For those of us who did not pre-order and are hoping to have an unmodified version, could anyone who successfully imports one please post here and let us know it's possible?

    Thanks!

    I've emailed several different overseas sellers on ebay asking if theirs would be shipped unmodified. Not a single one of them has responded.

    Ditto.

    And that was a fast response, IG. :D 

    Let me know if you find out any good news?

    I want to see what a modded Megatron looks like before I want to order it. If it's easily removeable or don't look that awful I may think about it.

    Orderd From A3U Unmodified. They are in Canada so teh customs over ther are not as tight as they are from the East. Spencer said he will make sure his US Customers get their MP-05s unmodified.

    Was that a pre-order from a while back or an order placed since the release. I thought no online stores were offfering unmodded versions to the US anymore.

    If Spencer is, I'd gladly buy from him.

    Edit: Just read on the A3U site that they're sold out. :(

    Of course Kooltoyz has a disclaimer on their site specifically about MP-05 saying they are not responsible if customs seizes the package. Which worries me because I cancelled my order at another store and ordered from them because of the modification.

    Would those of you who have purchased an unmodded version from A3U or Kooltoyz please post here and let us know that it arrives without any trouble?

    :)

    I ordered mine from this ebay seller

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290098945653

    He wrote: "
    Please note that our MP-05 has no orange tip modification. There will be no modifications with this figure in any way."

    It should have shipped either yesterday or today, so here's hoping it comes in ok. I'm not sure how fast is Hong Kong Post Registered Air Mail but I'm hoping for the best.

    Sorry to sound like a jerk but I'll have a good laugh if one of your unmodded Megs gets seized.
