    Actually, it does, and I appreciate it! :) 
    Just hope I don't have to deal with hefty import fees. I think you're safer in that department as Amazon Japan takes care of it in their billing, or so I've been told.

    AJ says I'll have StarCream by July 7th and DHL says I'll have StarCream by July 7th. Is there something wrong with me getting him by the end of this week? :mad: 
    I want to start my 2 week vacation this weekend the right way! With the Creamer in my hands!!! :) 
    ...............that didn't sound right :oops:

    Looks like I'll be getting mine Wednesday or Thursday since my shipment seems to have missed DHL shipping cut off time for the day.

    Ah well, at least I'll have the long weekend to enjoy it.

    Here’s more things I find interesting with MP-52:
    • The angled off surfaces resulting in a softer look from a distance in robot mode remind me of the Dreamwave look
    • The engineering and ability to maintain a stylized animation accurate robot mode while maintaining full, expressive articulation and a somewhat realistic alternate mode remind me a LOT of the Transformers Animated toyline, partly because a lot of what MP-52 does was thought to be impossible years back. I don’t know if Takara’s same engineering team from helped out or if Ono designed figures from that line too but the ability to pull off such a task shows similarities.

    Oh very late in the cycle. Probably like two weeks ago?

    also, their site seems to have crashed. Or at least a sign comes up saying down till the 29th.

    hmmmm

    My box looked like DHL used it to stand on to reach higher boxes, but it's here. Time to inspect.

    Man this thing is gorgeous. The more videos and pics I see the better he’s looking. The only thing that bumps for me as an eyesore is the rotating flap on his lower leg. I’m wondering, giving the simplistic toon aesthetics they were going for, why they would leave that part so busy. I’m hoping someone will sell a cap to simplify it.

    Well got the email from DHL moving his delivery date up to today! Hopefully my neighbors can hold him for me, so I don’t get hit by porch thieves.

    That’s a big difference with MP-03 and MP-11. Especially with MP-03, once you found a good pose, you had to find a way to balance it, not helped by how compromised the leg articulation was at the hips and how the stabilizers could get in the way. Easier with MP-11 due to more range but still an issue.
