    Being nice to customer support has no bearing on the automated algorithms that determine whether or not something is profitable for the company ;)

    To each their own. I would rather the customer service rep have an easy day than being bombarded by constant nagging customers. People don’t appreciate the patience they need to deal with their stuff on a daily basis. So in the end, I also care for their well being.

    5 more months to go for MP43 Megatron

    People said that about Dinobot. He’s here. So I can wait no problem with this guy.

    Don't get me wrong, I think it's commendable to be nice to customer support (it can be a very stressful job), I just don't think it affects Amazon business strategy in any way.

    Lower the stress for a person improves work performance which in turn can help boost performance. Every little bit counts. If amazon JP stops shipping overseas, it’s because of assumptions like these and people only wanting for personal gain. Sure it doesn’t apply to everyone, but attitude is key. So keep the happy attitude going so you guys can get MP43!

    I hope TT puts some stronger joints on his ankles and double checks his ratchets before they ship him out.

    I doubt it. They didn’t bother to with a figure they had in development for almost 2 years. And they are already advertising the stand compatibility. Guessing he will flop over in beast mode, too

    You're joking, right?

    Meg's legs are visibly more stable that Dinobot's, who can stand just fine in both modes.

    I'm guessing that's why they included the stand with him in the first place, not too much more realistically they could have done.

    You are just speculating based on static, photshooped pics. I remember everyone on these boards claiming dinobot would be rock stable and easily stand in both mode and that the stands were just an extra. But they were wrong, too

    It sounds like Mr Kaye is interested in obtaining one of these if you watch the interview on the front page.

    He could be a serious contender for best figure of all time if he's as spectacular as he looks.

    Tentatively pre-ordered him at Amazon JP when they had a 38% discount going on. Have until January to decide whether to stick with it. Would still be the most expensive single figure I've ever bought, but man, he just looks too perfect. That T-Rex has to be the best beast mode I've ever seen.

    oh my god enough with this. he said his 2 legged raptor currently is standing perfectly well. It's not blind faith in a company that a similar styled toy will do the same. I'm sick of hearing the 'fanboy loyalty much?' nonsense. I can see the pictures clearly. There is very simple science to settle your mind about the T-Rex being able to stand.
