    Dunno about all this hype but since we are all open to our opinions no doubt, this Megatron looks like a poor afterthought cobbled together which is a barely presentable custom by C***S***M**S. LOL

    Not the image I had in mind, but I otherwise agree. I neither expect nor want movie-verse homages in my G1 toys.

    Kraken and Lobclaw was in stock items?

    I don't think Pulse allows you to use PayPal (or prepaid CC gift cards) for pre-order items, only for in stock items.

    Yeah, I use the PayPal debit cash card that's tied to my PayPal, and that works for pre-orders.

    The "login to your paypal and pay invoice" thing doesn't work for pre-orders, right?

    Interesting that, according to Pulse, Super Megatron is TT-GS09, not the still-MIA Takara Selects TT-GS05. So there's still another mystery Takara Selects figure out there.

    Alright, fine! I couldn't resist the niche-ness and pre-ordered Super Megatron, are you people happy?! ARE YOU?!!! *pathetic sobbing at my own weak will*
    Is there an explanation for his Last Knight face or is it just an inexplicable addition for the sake of it?

    Also what in the goddamn hell is even happening in the manga? It's bordering on JoJo levels of lunacy. I guess I take back my assumption that the BWII Seacons getting blown up in the last chapter meant they'd been taken off the table for Generations Selects. Can't help but notice this surviving Scylla is still drawn with a different torso plate, and what looks like Moonracer's thighs.

    How much is the authorization amount?
    I currently do not have $60+ in my account.

    Also, can we change our shipping address at a later date?

    Sure. Sorry, I don't get your reference, and I think enough improvements were made in my opinion to not call it "poor", but calling this Super Megatron (and even Star Convoy before him) an afterthought isn't really controversial since, you know, it kind of was. For better or worse, TakaraTomy used old molds to bring these guys to life, so these Selects are essentially official customs.

    There was never a Nautilator repaint in Beast Wars II. Sadly.
    Of course I would not be against them doing it, but... knowing Takara's hard-on for cartoon accuracy, would not be surprised even if they did not even give weapons to the Space Pirate Seacons apart from the sword parts.
