    Yeah these are definitely renders. I want to see the actual pics because they looked a lot better in reality on the red version, so I would expect this one to look a lot better too.

    As someone just likes BW&BM I have little interest in this repaint, but I do appreciate its beauty

    So is this just a repaint? Any difference or improvements?

    Please everyone who CAN, PO this guy: Jiangxing JX-MB-01B Cold Dragon Transmetal Megatron - Show.Z Store
    I say this in one of two steps. But first the mini story, I could never get into Beast Wars, just a personal preference, they were like MBay TF. But when a good designer or team comes along and just coerces me to buy a product because it is so good, I step outside of my comfort zone (WJ BA Commander Thunder Leader, etc). Then I stumbled upon Jiangxing after every MAJOR reseller was long sold out and I was sad. but there still was ebay and aliexpress (I don't know how to do the Taobao thing).
    1) Now we have MB-01B, pre-order even if you think you can't afford it, because you can just change your mind when it is released...OR you've saved up enough when it finally does release. Of course, I'm using my beloved Showzstore and the positive experience with them, you can use your preferred and hopefully just shuffle your pre-order options as you like as well.
    2) PO it, don't let it slip by because you weren't ready...be ready now...change your mind later. ;)

    There has been talk that the Tigerhawk has been delayed due to copy right issue? So there is a chance that it may be cancelled depending on how the situation is escalated. Remember Wei jiang? Those guys were arrested and shut down.
    Anyways for those who still havent picked up Winged Dragon yet and are still on the fence I strongly suggest you pick him up now or you may lose the opportunity. You never know what will happen tomorow.

    Hope it continues the trend PE started and includes a masked face. That would look sick on this mold.

    Has anyone bought this from the JXFigures facebook store? If so, was the experience good and how long did shipping take?

    The Chosen Prime is little bit expensive but it does indicate that there is a reissue coming hopefully in other countries as well... though showz's shipping took exactly 60 days OUCH. For that reason I ordered my second copy from the Chosen Prime and the higher price didn't feel so awful once I had another one in my hand.

    Well I was interested in this figure but waiting on seeing their tiger hawk first. They should of waited to show renders until the item was ready to ship so it’s have been too late to stop the release of it. Now it’ll probably not happen. I understand hasbro and Takara have to protect their patents and copyrights, but geez maybe if their offerings weren’t complete garbage people wouldn’t be turning to 3rd party figures. Well I’m officially out of the hobby at this point. Good luck to all!

    TigerHawk might have to be delayed to this end of year due to some open-the-mould problem in the development.
