    Honestly, the vehicle mode scale was a definite deal breaker for FT Willis; WAY too big.  I hope that\'s not the case with this one.  The front of it already looks smaller judging from the pics at least.

    Looks amazing. And pre-ordered.

    I had him via amazon.jp but then saw the extra 10% tax that would be applied upon shipping.

    This paired with yen to USD uncertainty made me jump over to NY and locked in cost to $136 shipped to California.

    No.. would be the price shown after setting your shipping address... plus the 1200 yen shipping. So 14790 total... and you get it in like 2 days.

    Yep as stated, custom fees are already included in the order so it literally goes straight to you unlike the other UK websites where it gets shipped to them and then has to be separated and repacked for every order

    If they make a Hound+, I think they’ll just give him an additional toy style rifle rather than replace his handgun with it.

    Pricing being offered by the diffrent vendors is interesting this time...

    AE not being cheapest... amazon being significantly up (but of course still trumps everyone on shipping)... n-y being cheaper than AE..

    I’m still struggling to swallow Amazon’s change on preorders.

    Well I got fooled by unclear warnings, thanks amazon.

    Guess I will just have to wait a bit longer.

    With online shops including Amazon I will go through the checkout process until the very end when it asks you to click the button to confirm the order. Then you will see the actual total including any shipping, import fees if you have them etc. I do that with several sites to confirm I have the best price before pulling the trigger. In Hounds case I could have saved around $12 by going with Nippon Yassan and slow shipping but I chose to pay a little more for Amazon’s lightning fast shipping and return policy.

    Unfortunately with AE they refuse to tell you the shipping up front so it’s more difficult to see the total price. They bill you for shipping later, once they have the item in stock. You could use their shipping calculator or a previous order to estimate the shipping but it’s not as convenient.

    Anyway if you live outside of Japan the price will drop as soon as you add the item to your cart because we don’t pay the 10% tax.

    Well if it’s worth anything I’m 46 and have been collecting MPs since 2003 lol. Although all before MP-10 are boxed and put up. Only ones I do not have are Grapple, Inferno, Dirge( these will be bought eventually tho), Star Saber(no interest) , any Beast Wars characters (again no interest), and most repainted bots (+ Prowl, + Wheeljack being the only ones I own and soon +Streak).

    I always found it humorous that the G1 toy had this huge (but awesome) rifle that couldn't be pointed horizontally, but less upward.

    Not as a shield. I should have clarified that.
    And it seems the underwater face shield is there in the new pics, so I'm good.

    FANTASTIC! Bought and paid for :D :D :D .

    Though I fall outside the CRP, the £119.00 price is still less than I was expecting.

    I think it will. There’s some pretty clear hinges and it’d be too easy for Takara to miss on.

    Not only that, but AEs shipping cost has nearly doubled from what it was a couple years ago. They were my go to store for MPs until suddenly I got an invoice for a shipment with Dinobot and the laserwave+ where it was just insane. Shipping my MP Ironhide from them was painful. Glad I switched too AJ.

    How did people who don't know collect or follow the franchise find out about this on release?

    It's really baffling to include an accessory like that after largely abandoning so much of the realistic vehicle direction.

    I'll take "stuff that never happened" for $160, Alex ;)
