    I really dont see how they could improve the original RID toy . The original cartoon model is pretty much exactly based on toy. Not really that much room for improvment compared to BW and G1 Masterpieces

    True, the toy model and animation model are really close. But there are many ways the toy could be improved to match the anime even closer.

    Either way I cringe at the thought of the cost for an MP RiD Prime or an Armada Prime.

    Damn he's got a bend in his tail. I guessed correctly so! I knew that cut in the tail was for something :)

    BBTS just dropped their price on MP-43. Instead of 329.99, it's 319.99. Thats such a savings. LOL :rolleyes:

    They have added in the preorder discount yet. On another note their shipping wt. cant be right 1200 yen is cheaper than the carbots and and Dinobot . They must really be going with the 299 grams

    Got my preorder in on AJ!! It will undoubtedly get cheaper as the months roll by (even the next few days or weeks). I can’t believe they’re only charging me 1200 yen for shipping though. I wonder if they’ll honor that obvious mistake

    They will honor the shipping, they'll just not drop the price of the item ;)
