    BBTS and TF Source are stocking the God Ginrai set, so they will probably stock this set too. For God Ginrai the price is only about $10 more than the Japanese price and you don't have to pay international shipping costs.

    As much as I love the tapes, I don't really need the Japanese versions. I wonder if they will end up releasing additional tapes like slugfest, overkill, grand slam, raindance, squalktalk, and beastbox.

    That's like the base price to buy fro TTMall right? Got to add markup from wherever you're buying from and then shipping. I think you'd be lucky to get them for $120.

    $96 for repaints of things I already own? Ha ha. Nightstalker would be fun to own, that's about it.

    I'll buy these when they are KOed and half the price- maybe.

    These look pretty good except for the fact that Stripes weapons should be gold or orange, and those bombs on Nighstalker look very awkward. At least in these pictures.

    Can't wait to see Steeljaw. The cassettes are hard to do so I expected some compromise here and there.

    I do hope we eventually see cassettes beyond those that appeared in the animation, but I'm not sure that will be a priority. These always seem to sell well though, so who can say for sure. They have surprised us before.

    I have no interest at all in these, but am glad for the people that do want these kinds of characters. Ballsy move on Takara's part - to release something this niche before the inevitable Blaster & co. set(s).

    I bought a KO set of MP Frenzy & Buzzsaw, back when the official versions were sold out everywhere. On first transformation, KO Buzzsaw's head snapped off. No more KOs for me.

    "Ballsy" is being somewhat generous. They look cool, but releasing these cassettes before Blaster is like releasing Roller before MP-10. If there was a package deal that included everything WITH Blaster, I'd be all over it as soon as pre-orders went live, but just the cassettes at an inflated TT Mall price? Nope. Me Grimlock wait for box set.

    Actually, I figured we were all here to freely express our opinions. Talking about the cost and availability of this particular exclusive and the odds that it may end up splashed all over the secondary market as a knockoff seems pretty relevant to the thread. Or maybe I'm just a shi+poster. Whatever, I'm still going to chime in.

    Now that Wingthing opened up the possibility of Action Master characters, hopefully Slicer will be on the table.

    KO's have nothing to do with this thread. This thread is for the discussion of official masterpiece products. If you're interested in KO's take it to the appropriate section. Otherwise you're pretty much a shitposter.

    I gotta agree, this isnt Wingthing. Its no big deal but it is reaching saying this is a "MASTERPIECE" Wingthing. Because it's not Wingthing. Wingthing is a fatter Bat that transforms into a axe/weapon/blaster thing. I suppose they should at least be close with transformation and idea of what the character once was. Its not a problem per se but if they keep doing things like this to the masterpiece line, what's next?. I mean isn't suppose to be representing the cartoon/toys centered mostly around the animation characters? And not a retail type line where they repaint something because it looks close enough?

    I think it be dope to release a Comic accurate Ratbat with comic colors (dotted lavender and dotted purple, 1985-86 Marvel Comic style). Call it "Decepticon Commander Ratbat" he used to tell SOUNDWAVE what to do, that was rad. Although they did argue a bit for control at one point.

    This more like an Autobot clone of Ratbat
