    Not likely. Once they source out from the manufacturer they have to get them from secondary vendors. That's why the price went up

    So what's the best place to buy this from? Showz? Thechosenprime? tfs express?

    Never bought a third party figure before but I want this to go along with Threezero's Optimus.

    I’d go TCP, but that’s just me. They get things quickly and have great CS.

    Thanks. I've never heard of them so bit skeptical. Seems a lot of people use Showz though.

    Also looks like they added new updated photos yesterday.

    It's hard saying no to Megatron..... but I am going to wait for reviews.

    Showz is good and reliable. They are based in China so shipping takes 2-4 weeks depending on how big figures get. But they do honor preorder prices so there is that. TCP is also reliable and is a North American retailer. Tho being state side, they might get him later, and As far as I know they don’t honor preorder prices if the price changes.

    TCP is as legit as they come. they are really great at coming through with the products. in a nice and timely matter and sometimes it is faster than china.

    but the after sales care is definitely another issue. they like to leave it in the hands of "we contacted the manufacturer so we are waiting just like you" bs.

    while other stores just take it apon themselves to make things right asap. and deal with the qc and damage issues on their own behind the scenes.

    Not to mention, they are now charging higher prices.

    They are and it is good to ask here because there are some really unreliable stores too

    [QUOTE = "mikequillm, post: 19542753, member: 108230"] Lo son y es bueno preguntar aquí porque también hay algunas tiendas realmente poco confiables [/ QUOTE]
    Gracias, estaba un poco preocupado. Yo suelo usar Showz.

    Sorry, a problem with Chrome.
    I said that I usually use ShowZ and I was a little worried and thank you for your answer

    It really just depends on how fast you want it, which country you're in, and if you want to save a few bucks. I personally use TCP if I want it quick and showz if I don't

    For Europe TCP is not an option, ShowZ is THE option.

    As a concept BB movie-ish Megatron, this is looking pretty rad. If quality is good I might have to add this to the Megatron collection.

    I'm still stumped as to why they didn't go with the weathered/battle damage paint. If I put him next to TW prime it will look like Megatron got in all the punches and prime can't fight worth a shit

    It’s still there, just not as heavy. Look at the shoulders, you can see it pretty evidently there.
