    I'd say that's character dependent for those deeper discounts. Given Target's track record for exclusives, I don't see this one getting discounted that heavily.

    Those are if's and buts... Besides the MPM's are niche enough as it is, if everyone goes straight to the 'i'll wait for the KO' mind set HasTak might drop the line entirely.... And I'm rather done with G1 (my collection atleast.)

    So I'll support the official line...

    We don’t have Target in Canada. So I’m assuming it will be a Toys R Us exclusive here as usual and it will shelf warm for sure. Last time I was at my local TRU there were at least 20 copies of Jazz and still lots of copies of Ironhide, Beetle Bumblebee and Megatron. The prices are much higher in Canada due to our dollar sucking so I think that’s part of the issue. Megatron is $282 from TRU after tax! I got it for $160 shipped from AJ. Also Jazz is $10 more than Bumblebee or Barricade so that’s not helping either.

    And Amazon Japan has discounted every release as far as I know. Since U.S. citizens don’t pay any import taxes that’s a good source. Actually I’ve received 100% of my import taxes refunded to me on the last 6 purchases at Amazon Japan so I don’t think Canadians pay any tax there either in the end.

    Looks good. I'll probably eventually get him, I usually do with MPMs.

    Having said that, I'm concerned about the odd coloring.
    Is that just something overlooked in the movies, or is he really that dark metallic gray and navy?

    Maybe I'm just used to looking at my Studio Series one.

    Dunno.

    Lucky for me I have 2 movie collections, Masterpiece and a "catch all" everything else line. That way, I will keep my MPM Starscream with the other collection and add this to my MP collection.

    I wonder if the jet mode will be larger than the mpm version?

    Does anyone know if he is available for Pre-Order in the US yet. Is the price def 149.99 because im seeing sites for pre-order charging 200.00 and other high prices (TFsource). Is it worth waiting till target has the pre-order?

    It’d be nice if it were larger than MPM-01. Hopefully!

    Not that I can find. I’ve been eagerly waiting to preorder too

    "Inspired by CAD files" has to be the strangest justification ever.

    I imagine the jet mode will be larger, considering that the robot mode is considerably taller. Can't wait for comparison pics!

    Accuracy isn’t a good justification?

    I think what @kylash327 means it's that it's a weird thing to advertise, we already know that it should be inspired on his original source by default.

    I think they just want to explicitly say that they used the actual ILM models to differentiate from the times they use concept art as reference.

    Had the Exact same thought process hahaha. Once I considered them to be Alien and they shouldn't look like anything recognizable I started to love them.

    never wanted a fig of him really but this one is great looking

    It's not "inspired" by CAD files... my point is the wording is weird, thats all. You would say "based on CAD files" or "using CAD files" and "inspired by the movie design".
