    All caught up!
    Man I feel like the guy that ends up going to the mall by himself, only to find all of his friends hanging out without him, lol.

    On topic, I’m liking all the trans theories. I agree that the ladder part and the gas tank fold back to form his bot leg cuffs- maybe the back part of his lower leg? That panel seems rectangular and doesn’t have that flared look to make up the inner leg parts.
    I’m also excited to see what the matrix chamber will look like...I hope it’s fully painted, or they use the same details as they used on Mp megatron’s abdomen detail.
    @Sam , thanks for creating this thread.

    Haha. I thought it was the transformation sound too.

    Aw sweet, you like the Avengers, too. :) 

    Some posts got moved in to an MP Starscream 3.0 thread.

    These transformation tidbits are fun, good eyes guys.

    This . The Matrix chamber was what I was looking forward to most . Other features I wanted to see included the trailer . Does it still retain the outriggers ? An what about the towing issues ? Is roller still capable of towing the trailer ? Does the trailer have jack stands ? Last but not least , we know it’s fully painted on the inside , but does it include weapons storage ? We have lots to see yet .

    I'm still a little suspicious because it wasn't that low when I ordered Magnus earlier this year! More like 4000.

    Thanks for the heads up.
    Based on previous releases I'd say that he'll likely end up around the 34,000 mark for you overseas folks. For us here in Japan it should be around 36,000 including taxes.
    It's steep as fuck and I am not a big fan of the pricing trend but... I preordered the damn thing. God help us all.

    I would be but dinobot was 2200 and BW Megs is 1100, of course Megs hasn't shipped, but it's not totally unreasonable

    Ordered one as well. It didn't come up in the standard search, but did from your link.
    Weird.
    Now, the waiting game begins...

    Your pre-order is locked in so that you will always get whatever the lowest possible price it will descend to. No need to cancel and repurchase.

    Quite a while, I think. But the price fluctuates. If you put in the order now, you will be guaranteed whatever the lowest price is. If you put in an order after that lowest price, and the price climbs up and never goes down, you will have missed out on that lowest deal.

    It's super easy to cancel from Amazon Japan, and they don't charge anything until the release date. Basically, there's absolutely no reason not to put in an order right now.
