    This picture really points out why I don't like the lion mode. It's not the gaps or the seam lines or the exposed robot mode bits or hinges, that all just comes with being a Beast TF.

    But the proportions are all wrong. I feel like as a Masterpiece some deviation from the transformation scheme should've been allowed. Primal changed up the way the legs fold in order to have better proportions whilst keeping articulation, same with the head. But look how tiny his face is and imagine the "skull" under the mane. It should be almost 20-30% bigger IMO, and the forelimbs are massively undersized compared to the back. (I'm aware he's arching his rear up in a typical cat-aggressive pose, but still) I mean, it looks like everything left of the mane in that photo is undersized for the anime-accurate design they're going for.

    Preordered at AJ... but man, that’s a narrow cancellation window..

    I do wish he had an alternate lion face that was toy accurate.

    That pic looks like he's arching up for a back scratch, while threatening anyone who would dare interrupt said back scratch. :lol 

    It actually made me want this cat more, just so I could pose him like that.

    August 25th is less than 3 weeks away! Yeah that's kind of an insane cancellation window. I'm just going to wait until then to see what happens.

    The head is small for what a lion would actually have. But for me, I’m not expecting accurate lion proportions.
    Lol it does. He really could use some alternate faces. A snarl or smile would really help distinguish.

    Did you read my post? Bumblebee and Prime are MP+. Only real new character is Hound. Maybe I should clarify: MP+ of characters already released whether it be repaint or new design.

    Some of us would like to complete the original set of characters in our lifetimes without having to wait ages as TT now seem to be throwing all series into the mix pushing things back further.

    Question about Amazon Japan. I have several existing preorders with them and I need to change my shipping address. I heard a horror story somewhere that someone attempted to do this and AJ decided to cancel the order. Does anyone know if this is standard practice for them?

    I’ve changed addresses and payment a few times with no issue. They’re still Amazon so if something is up they’ll go above and beyond to fix it. I got two bad copies of MP BW Megatron and they had replacements in my hands within two days and it was a relatively painless process all things considered.

    Ordered from AJ. $50 saving versus Pulse. It’s no comparison. Psyched. I’ve wanted a version of this character for years.

    Yeah I pre-ordered with AJ. He'll probably never leave bot mode like Dinobot though, since beast mode is so terrible.

    I\'ve never even seen the show but I\'ve always been a sucker for Lio Convoy. Its just a really cool design. I\'ll definitely snag this.
