    I'm not a huge g2 fan but I do like this. Definitely not going to be easily attainable tho. Won't be surprised to see this sell out at the con.

    Man I think the g2 scream toy was literally the only version of the original toy mold I ever owned too. Would love to get this recreation, damn they made it look nice.

    Just be prepared to be royally reamed with the shipping. Pretty much all the US sellers charge way too much to ship to Aus. Ordinarily, you're much better going through Show.Z or eBay, but given this is meant to be a TCP exclusive, you're probably tied to their store.

    Unfortunately, TCP won't provide a shipping quote on pre-order products, so we have no idea how much this would cost. As a test though, I just added Galaxy Meteor to my cart and requested a shipping quote and it came back with only one shipping option (USPS Priority Mail) and a quote of US$60.

    I'm starting to remember why I've never really bothered to buy anything from them.

    I really like these more toyetic heads on MP(-style) figures, like this or MP-36+, it just really sells the idea of these guys being alien space robots.

    Damn this is gonna be stupidly expensive to get on the secondary market. TFCon Maestro has been impossible to get. Almost $300 on Ebay.

    Right I see. Well maybe I’ll go to eBay or anywhere else I scrounge.
    Same! They look so weird and alien! It’s a perfect look. Much like the realistic comic book decos. With all their weird staturation and use of blue.

    Really? I sold mine a few weeks ago for under 150. It was a few weeks on ebay and nobody was interested first!

    There's one on eBay right now for $160. Glad I bought mine right away though, there will come a point when he will be more scarce.

    It is ironic how people, that were able to get something exclusive or limited, think they are in possession of a life changing fortune.

    That's the secondary market for you. I do wish Maketoys were more like MMC in regard to exclusives. Being able to buy from Planet Steel helps keep things in check.

    They should probably announce these early enough to make plans to go to the show unless TFCon is expecting people to roll the dice.

    Aw, fuck.

    I mean, I hope we get it no matter what. On the other hand, I really don't want to fly to Toronto just for a G2 Ramjet.

    Turns out it might be one of those “not quite as exclusive as we want you to think” exclusives.
    Pre-orders have been spotted for it on TaoBao.
    Maketoys MTRM-11 Meteor
    The seller looks legit but no idea what the background is of how they are able to offer it. They are using TCP’s photos so...
