    When did you place your pre-order? I ordered it March 6, pretty early on I think and I paid 16,783 plus 1600 for shipping. $10 is still $10. It's a gamble on whether how long after release it'll go lower, by how much, and when it'll its lowest before selling out.

    I painted a Diaclone ReBoot spare adapter plug gloss white and made a notch in it so I could attach his Tiger Shot in stored mode.
    What did you find for storage?

    Pretty sure you can use the beast mode storage slot in robot mode as well. It's on his butt. Not super elegant but it works.

    There's a hexagonal port on the underside of the backpack that allows for the tab on the blaster to slot in. So rather than it storing vertically using the normal port and hanging down between his bot legs, it stores horizontally and hides nicely when looking at him from the front.

    Well, apparently ShowZ isn't sure when Tigatron will be coming in. Maybe this week, is what they said.
    I canceled my MP V2 Starscream with them. Placed my order for him with TCP instead.

    I pre-ordered mine. I emailed them when I saw the price reduction, they are refunding me the difference.

    I can't believe Amazon Japan is so FAST. I just placed the order on Tuesday and it just delivered 2 hours ago (Thursday). TWO DAYS (I live in Illinois).
    I keep picturing those DHL commercials where their deliver trucks are flying fast like airplanes. My goodness! Thanks again for the sale update, can't wait to open this fast kitty.

    To my ‘stuck in Show Z Limbo’ bros- He’s now ‘Incoming’ so the agonising wait should end very soon.
    Just not for me as I’ve asked them to hold it till the start of November to ensure it definitely gets delivered to my new address once I’m there.

    I tried twice, they did not refund me the difference on the original pre-order. They said I would have to return the original and buy the cheaper one. Way too much of a hassle for me. Hope you have better luck.

    Hey thanks for the heads up! I was able to get a 2600 yen credit because that ended up being the price difference from when I ordered.

    For others it might be worth it to ask for a credit instead of a refund because I have tried for a refund on a different purchase a year back and it didn't work. They also said this would be the first and last time.
