    Takara usually releases their stuff on the last Saturday of the month, but online retailers typically get their stock one or two days before (Japan time). I would look for an email sometime on the afternoon next Thursday.

    Clever use of props and all for the transformation sequence, but Megatron can pull a way tighter Iron Man pose than that. He looks a bit off balance there, and it's kinda detracting from how impressive that setup is otherwise.

    I love the tone of this image, the use of color, lighting, and scenery pieces. The use of G1 Megatron as the mid-transformation stage is a very nice touch.

    Does anyone know if there are going to be any differences with the reissue coming out at the end of the month? I want to get him and I usually buy everything from BBTS but I don't want the orange plugs. I see Toy Dojo has him in stock but am guessing he is from the original run. Didn't know if I should wait it out and pre-order from TFSource or Captured Prey.

    How could we know differences if we don't have it on hand yet? The earliest we can tell you is 2 weeks from now.

    I just wasn't sure if there had been any info out there about the reissue being different in any way. I tried searching everywhere and didn't find anything. I was just checking.

    I would love to see a version of this in the flat grey and blue Megaplex colors at some point.

    Amazon Japan just sent an update saying he should be on my door between the 28th and the 31st. I already have him, but I wanted a second copy of my favorite figure! $180 shipped. Worth every penny!

    So in an attempt to replace my damaged yelling face ( messed up eye's painting ) , I ordered the MoDel - Model-001 - MP-36 Masterpiece Megatron Upgrade Kit with Light-Up Head
    Was hoping that I can pull the eye part out of the face to paint Mica Red on it , but unfortunately , same as the figure , face parts are glued on to the forehead part. Wonder if I should mask and paint , what a PITA.
    At least the dimming effect is cool.

    You can try masking and using on of those paint pens/paint markers.

    yeah I planned to but currently I found out one nice solution
    If you put a piece of paper in the LED slot you can make the light less striking and the eye will light up better since the light spread out on whole paper piece , not just 2 light bulb.
