    I ordered even though I go to 5 area Targets a week. I'm almost guaranteed to see it in store (I normally collect the NECA TMNT figures there), but I've ordered several MP through Amazon lately so I have 620 points, plus I received a targeted $10 off coupon from Amazon.jp so I have $16 off. That negates the shipping and knocks the price even more. Worth the month wait to get $16 off preorder price.

    If I buy at Target, at most I'll get 5% off with the Redcard discount but have to pay sales tax, plus have to explain at the store to my wife why I need yet ANOTHER Starscream. If he shows up at the door in an amazon box, he'll blend in with all the other crap that gets delivered weekly. Slip him in the HFTD Starscream's spot, and VOILA! No one will notice the difference but me!

    Yeah fuck it, I don’t feel like wondering if I’ll get one from Target. I don’t like playing that game anymore.

    Wait, so is he confirmed to be a red card exclusive or whatever, or is that just speculation? I just wanted to go into a Target and buy him

    I used to check out a couple weekly, but now... well... I haven't been in one in months. Who knows what October will look like? Just playing it safe.

    And heck, with your extra discounts, AJP is definitely the best deal right now!

    Oh no not confirmed at all, just pessimistic speculation lol.

    This maybe a stupid question but do you need a separate account to order from Amazon Japan? How does that work exactly?

    Separate account, but that's it. Everything works out the same, basically. Put in address, payment, confirm... wait.

    Lol, Amazon's auto translation feature isn't perfect. Seems like that's how it gets translated for most of Starscream's listings. It's written correctly as Starscream in Japanese though.

    If you think that’s good, you should’ve seen TLK deluxe Hot Rod’s listing.

    Domo arrigato, otobotto hottoroddo!

    I lucked out, coz the email letting me know I had a coupon for Amazon.jp was in my spam folder. Thought it was a phishing scam, but I went to amazon and it showed in my shopping cart! Email said it was good til June 30, so decided to hold on to it til something came up, then saw Starscream the next day! T’was a no-brainer!

    Well, these are the only Masterpieces that Hasbro's been able to release at retail for some time now...

    So that's not exactly false.

    I reckon we'll probably see more of this guy in the Figure King magazine coming out tomorrow.

    Not too bad of a price on AJ. Though I still think he's a bit overpriced, but such is the life of a collector.
    I preordered my very first Doritoscream.
    I wonder if that price will drop any more before October.
