    But this version is a TWE so it won't be on AJ.

    Still better off ordering from AE, or at least another direct import.

    Tempted because I wasn't able to secure the regular version.

    Since it is a Tamashi, where would one go to get it besides Bandai and btts? Btts has been my source for those since NY went under. I wanted to get the red shoulder but it was all 3p vendors and pricey as well. Does AE carry Bandai exclusives?

    Anime-Export is the usual go-to shop for TWE.

    They do have markups as you see in the Turbo Custom above, but they've always been quite reliable and they are never shady or sinister like N-Y or other shops.

    AE is now pre-soldout. Was going to order on Monday, just was too busy this weekend to think about it at all. Shucks.

    Seems the Scope Dog is already at a base MSRP of 22,000 yen (excluding tax) which comes out to about $145. Seems a bit steep for a non-transforming figure. But, I guess everything has gone up in price considerably over the past few years. Seems like we're at a point where we are paying 1/60 scale prices for roughly 1/100 scale Macross figures now.

    Well I managed to order the Scopedog at Nin-nin-game last night. There was 2 available and I tried to notify a member here who was also looking but they didn't make it in time to get the other.

    Looking forward to it, such a cool looking mecha!
