    This is why I bought IT-01 Megatron as it has a back piece that cleans it up nicely.

    So I finally have the time to sit down and preorder this, and Amazon Japan says it won't ship to the US. What's up with that?

    So I just need to wait till they put up another allotment? It's weird, I don't see anywhere on the page where it's saying it's sold out.

    I’m sorry to say but it seems AMJP has sold out of MP52 for the moment. What you are seeing is a 3rd party seller. Just wait for AmJP to have another allotment of preorders in the near future. It will say “ ship and sold by : Amazon Japan”. The last round of preorders lasted 2 weeks. Just keep watching this thread and you’ll know when it’s up again. 571E9E48-4230-41DF-8919-C2182F7E946D.jpeg

    Teeeechnically it’s not, you can still buy through third parties on their site, but they don’t ship to the US. The actual amazon.jp stock however is currently sold out. More will likely turn up at some point though.

    Except this is licensed when even MP-3/11 weren't, and in many details it's a more accurate F-15 than those figures. So it is strange the pointed down nose, and I'm surprised it hasn't been picked on much. The real jet has the nose angled down a tiny bit, but they seem to have gone overboard here. Strange choice imho.

    Thanks guys, I'll just sit tight then. I wasn't terribly worried about getting a preorder in right away after Arcee sold out about what, seven or eight times? I guess I'm just worried they'll close preorders sooner than would be warranted considering the high demand this figure has. I mean let's go for 10+ sellouts, right?

    Don't forget that this is a photo of a pre-production model, and the wings look like they're a bit higher at the back than at the front, so they don't seem to be correctly clicked in/transformed entirely correct... I think/hope in hand it will be fine, and the nose will be angled down at the right percentage. I'm hopeful. ;)

    Beautiful work fellas. Man Soundwave looks like the ugly friend who stands to the edge of the photo, making themself easy to crop out.. I've been guilty of standing on the edge, I know how you feel Soundwave :( 
    V2 cant come soon enough!

    I ain't gonna lie, I think MP 52 looks better in every way. I hated them MP03 seekers, just reminded me of model airplane kits in alt mode, really lacked any "soul" or substance to being a G1 Transformer... not too dissimilar to Alternators.
    Really think this is one of the top 3 MP's ever made. I'm hyped for a Thundercracker that looks like that one you posted ha

    The Inflation Calculator

    I used this inflation meter to compute the cost of MP-11 back in 2012. The price I quoted includes JP sales tax at Y14300 (the calculator won't go beyond 2019 though) MP-11.png

    With the AJ cost of $203.54, the price increase from MP-11 is $50.13 not including shipping.

    I used xcurrencydot com to compute the FXrate.

    I heard that he’s going to look more like he did during his coronation, complete with disintegration and all!
