    Ah, OK. Some friendly advise, better to order from Amazon Japan in case of regular Masterpieces. Will save you a lot of money. I paid almost 100 USD less for Starscream than you did. But Thundercracker was a TT Mall exclusive and those are expensive unfortunately. I paid almost the same for mine as you did for your Thundercracker. But my package is unaccounted for, going to contact DHL about that tomorrow.

    My only real critic is that TT could have done a different face sculpt for TC, something closer to this maybe

    Have you already checked the nearest DHL pick up point? I once had a similar experience with tracking stating it was delivered without me having received it. I simply went to the nearest DHL pick up point and there it was.

    (Also once sold a TF and had it shipped through DHL to Belgium. Tracking then said it was delvered at the same point I had dropped it off, thus in the wrong country. But it wasn't. Tracking was just wrong.)

    So just paint/finish issues and no cracks unlike SS, then?

    Kinda weird since TC's gorgeous blue finish is his selling point.

    Wonder why TT allows ShowZ and some other CHN/HK shops to carry and sell TC, but not the regular japan import-shops...

    TTMall exclusives mean just that. Outside Japan is is irrelevant, so anyone can sell it. Japanese buyers could even buy from those sellers, not that it could be cheaper for them, I suspect

    Kinda defeats the whole purpose of being "Exclusives" when it is somehow and somewhat quite readily available from other countries.

    Wonky capitalism...

    Agreed, but TT only cate about the home market. A better description would be limited release or something. None of the other retailers get their stock from Japan without buying from TTMall themselves. If Hasbro Asia didn't argue for it, this would literally only be on sale to the Japanese. Now that would be exclusive...

    I have every MP mold since 08, save for the Beast Wars figures, and I must say that I've been seeing more and more QC issues since Hound. I hope Takara mangages to up their game even if it means that the figures will get even more expensive...

    Thundercracker was always my favorite seeker when I was a kid. My dad bought starscream for himself, skywarp for my brother, and I got thundercracker.
