    Go to your comic shop and ask if they will order one for you. Worst case is they make you pay up front.

    They normally charge what $84.99 at the online stores for TTMall specials so this is about par. Maybe it's not as big a run ,as you could guess they should still be a little cheaper than that since they can get them domestically. It will be interesting to see if Amazon gets these and how much they will charge.

    I'll try.
    But our comic book shops here make initial pre-orders like they do in the Hot Toys Figures.
    Their practice is that they instantly pop out an announcement pre-order slots in their Facebook account.

    Diamond is the company that distributes comics, toys, posters and what not to local comic shops.

    If it doesn't exist in my city why would I care to research? If Im going to buy an MP figure online, I can just go to Tfource or BBTS. The whole point of this article was that MPs will be available in retail stores. But if its only going to be in comic book shops, thats a big tease for those of us who live in more urban areas. Maybe in middle America there are still comic book shops. But in Miami, thats just a recipe for chapter 11 bankruptcy. Just like sports memorabilia shops, RC toy shops, art gallery shops, etc. About the only "shops" that stay in business down here are the ones that sell expensive pipes, bongs, and hookahs that pass off as glass art.

    Only issue with this change is no way to get discounts and you'll probably not be able to take it back, if you decide you don't want it or have issues, though I'm not sure the later was possible, as I thought TRU put in end to that....

    I'm happy for this release regardless. Bought 6 of the first Takara wave and all were crappy on the paint apps, especially the car modes. As I found out with Sideswipe, it was leaps and bounds better with the anime releases. Paint was more crisp on tail and headlights and paint matched on the plastic and die cast.

    Wow. I couldn't tell you how many comic shops exist in New York City. Midtown alone has several locations. Uncanny has a few locations in Philly. And there are plenty more throughout eastern PA and northern NJ. But I guess NYC, Philly, & the Northeast Corridor don't count as urban? If Miami is truly that devoid of specialty shops, I'll just add that to my list of reasons to avoid Florida when possible...

    I was gonna post the same as him until I saw the listing on Diamond's website. It was a bit suspicious that all the photos they chose for him were without his toy launchers, and the bio only describes him coming with his built-in shoulder cannons. But if the Diamond website shows it, then I guess he does still come with them.

    Since he's exclusive to the US I guess there will be no need for him to have a CE stamp, unlike Hasbro's first MP Prowl.
