    Good news, he can hold his blaster properly! Also there are some screws at the wrist joint that may help fix the issue if it is present on some copies.

    i wonder if there is any chance they will revert back to the clear brownish tint windows for the US release (target)?

    Sorry, but not likely. It's the same Hasbro release. There is a VERY slim chance that the Takara domestic release will be different but it's very unlikely. At least the blue windows match MPM-7 but I have no idea why they did that on either of them. What's even more bizarre is that MP-45 Bumblebee V2 is the only recent MP Autobot car release that did not have blue windows. I ended up getting Toyhax translucent blue stickers to fix the windows and make him match everyone else. It's like they swapped the window plastic between MPM-7 and MP-45. Maybe the factory confused the two VW Beetles? :)

    My Amazon Japan order was just automatically canceled because the listing says it comes with a trailer on their site. The email was entirely in Japanese so be sure to look into any Amazon Jp emails you get if you ordered from them.

    I got the same email. Totally bizarre! To be honest I'm anxious to get this and TT says on their web site that the release status is "postponement of release". So I'm most likely just going to buy the Hasbro version.

    Anyone have a link to the Target listing for it, or did it never go up?

    I don't think it went up. Hopefully someone here will prove me wrong.

    I want to know when they'll announce the 2nd MPM for the year. I know it's expected to be Bumblebee. But I'm really surprised it hasn't been announced yet (if true).

    DUDE, me too, but I spent about 30 min with Amazon Tech Support (a guy in India, though we typed back and forth in Japanese oddly enough...) and the guy said that my order was still in place (not canceled) and to ignore that message.

    I repeatedly asked, are you sure it's still "ordered" and he said yes... I'm nervous af about it since I don't want to miss out, but I also don't want to order from Marketplace either, since ordering now would lock into one of those bogus 20,900 yen prices...

    I also called TakaraTomy who said that the product has been "delayed indefinitely" which is probably what triggered the cancellation mail, and sure enough, it now just says "delayed" on the tf.takaratomy.co.jp product page, but I am sure it is still getting released here, just will probably take a month or two more.

    Maybe it’ll be like grindor where they neglect movie stuff for so long it becomes available at retail before it’s even revealed.

    My order is gone from the AJ "Your Orders" page. So I think it's cancelled. And I hope it is because I already ordered a Hasbro version to replace it.

    For any fellow Canucks out there, Toys R Us are doing a $25 off $100 or more promotion right now and it works on this figure. Free shipping as well. I ended up paying $163 CAD in Ontario which ain't bad considering the MSRP is $192 with tax.

    Yoinked this pic off FB as it shows why for me, despite its flaws and nitpicks, MPM-12 is still the only viable option for me. So many 3P/KOs and not one was made to fit the MPM scale.

    I mean... yeah, why would they go any bigger in the MPM scaled line...not all that ballsy to make just another MPM figure. Especially Optimus.

    But an MPM Devcon, now that would be ballsy.
