    Long story short: He liked it. Except for the fake chest, and the lack of the coronation gear.

    He said it was good, the waist swivel not being an issue in hand and made a joke about the Deformation Space Starscream at the end.

    Only real negatives was that the ankles were way to loose forward and back and how the coronation gear you got with MP-11 is stuck behind the seeker trio pay wall.
    But for that I'd be surprised if there wasn't a KO of it later down the line.

    Wait, what are you saying Jobby should do? Recommend that people buy it at the Amazon Japan pre-order price that no longer exists?

    3P gets judged by cheaper prices for longer because it's usually available at or near those prices for longer and gets reissued more often (with the exception of Fanstoys at the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021, but even they are coming back to earth now with their recent releases available at or near retail prices well after they release).

    And how this is a Takara fault? It is not fair to compare a jacked up price from a local import retailer and a preorder price from a chinese shop. He does the same with the OP review, and no, i don't think it has a bias with TakTom like BS, but you can have a lot of view with people raging (and maybe you have to sponsorize that shop, i dunno). Not fair, anyway.

    It doesn't matter whose "fault" it is, all that matter is what price is available to a reviewer's target audience (people who don't already own a given figure and maybe don't even know about a given figure) right now.

    "Retail price is tot". If you only show a pricey retailer option, i don't think you are doing a fair service to people that doesn't own a figure.

    But I mean, it's about the same at other retailers. Where is it available for significantly cheaper?

    I sincerely don't know, i already preorder the figures. I understand that now is hard to have a preorder price, expecially with popular figures, but pricing in import stuff is a can of worm. If you want to talk about it, you (not you, the reviewer) have to be clear about it and the import mechanics, and not making these silly comparison that does not have any sense, almost not as the one in the video. I could say "wait for the assured restock", or "This is the SS retail price, search for the lower price in retail importer, or preorder the third party one". It's different.

    Seems like a waste of time to me. If you already bought it at the pre-order price, then you already have it, good for you, Jobby talking about its current higher price isn't gonna retroactively change that. But for anyone who's deciding whether or not to get it right now the only price that matters is the one they have to pay right now. And I say that myself as someone who's personally deciding between MP-52 and DS-01. Either I can pay roughly $260 for MP-52 or roughly $130 for DS-01, it's not a pissing contest, it's just the practical reality of the situation.

    Are you calling Hasbropulse a local import retailer then? They're the same price as BBTS and the others.

    It's not like Takara couldn't set up their own shop in English and start shipping to the U.S. So yeah, it is their fault.
