    Oh. Yeah, I might’ve trusted a little too willingly, but it’s because I heard such good things about them. I know them not receiving stock isn’t their fault, I’m still super pissed at Flame Toys for that. But I don’t appreciate how they’ve been ignoring the issue too. Like, when were they gonna call it quits, refund people and say “hey, it appears we aren’t receiving this”?

    Got my order canceled and refunded at USAGS, money should be hopefully appearing back in my account in a few days. Glad to have this snafu over with; if I ever use USAGS again, I’m only gonna buy something that’s in stock. As for Megatron, I’ll hopefully purchase him elsewhere at the end of the week

    I know it's a long shot, but I am looking for two pieces missing from mine (pictured):
    - little back cap
    - bonus roaring face

    Maybe someone is not that of a completist and would like to return some $$ for Megs, please pm me, we could figure something out.

    The face is exclusive, so it’s not missing from yours unless you bought it from D4. Although the back cap should’ve been included as far as I know. Have you tried contacting the retailer you bought it from, or contacting D4 directly?

    Man, FINALLY got my charge back from USA Gundam. Took forever because they sent the paperwork to my old address by mistake. Now I can FINALLY get Megatron.

    BTW, I found out that My credit card company never informed USA GUNDAM until 2 weeks ago of the dispute. So to them I was just still waiting. They have no intention of ever filling those orders and are simply getting their restocking fee. I'll never shop there again. And they are right down the street from my best friend who just moved to J-ville. Annoying.

    I finally bought this holy grail of mine from Sideshow and it should be here Monday. So hyped, but also cautious. This’ll be up there with Hot Toys Endgame Iron Man and Cap as one of the most expensive (at retail anyway) figures I own; certainly the most expensive Transformer. Never had a 3K figure before, and though I’ve seen many reviews on YouTube, anything to reiterate/emphasize from the group here?
    I really wanna ensure it lasts indefinitely..at least within my lifetime lol. Any tips/cautions/restrictions would be appreciated. I’ll probably have to put it back in the box once I check it out and mess with it for a little, bc I don’t have a good setup at my apartment here while training to display it appropriately, so hopefully it’s fine sitting in the box for a few months. Gonna try to transport it back home during holiday leave.

    megs is a pretty fun 3k figure. Lots of accessories. If you plant on putting right back in the box the I would recommend to just mess with the figure and make don’t take all the accessories out of the box. Also avoid installing batteries to prevent corrosion. Just appreciate the figure for a bit without having to fiddle with all the extra bits. He is awesome!

    Finally my Megs is shipping from Sideshow. Loooooooong drama for something I paid in full for over a year ago. Thankfully I waited to give USA Gundam any more orders until they fullfilled the first. I'd have a stack of Gundam orders from Metal builds and Mazingers I'd be worried wouldn't get fullfilled. More money for BBTS as usual.

    I'd be prepared to get your fingers hurt a bit. Megatron is sharp! :D 

    Other than that there is probably nothing to worry about other than what Retroheavy mentioned about batteries and corrosion if you're going to keep him in package most of the time.
