    I'm just starting to move into my new place and all of my funds were/are diverted from buy any and all collections that I have to make a successful, as less stress as possible move.

    I won't have any funds available until mid August.:confused:  Moving sucks!:mad: 

    Yeah, I know, first world problems and all that shtick.

    Ah, well that makes perfect sense. Best of luck with the move! Hopefully Godbomber will show up in one of the other US box sets to give you another option if the TakTom one vanishes from the realm of reasonable cost by the time you're ready. Because, yeah, moving sucks. :)

    Sigh, I guess my hopes of TRU getting a restock or these showing up at TJMaxx/Ross is pretty low. :/

    That's what I get for not buying the first box set the absolute second I saw it listed. :hookday

    I was only offering a suggestion to fix their nitpicking.

    The amount of skill it takes to paint that face a single color and add 2 dots for red eyes is at a level a pre-teen could handle.

    Also, perhaps if $4 of paint is breaking the bank, one should consider a cheaper hobby altogether.

    Relative to the thickness of the stripe, the Hasbro one is much more accurate to the G1 toy, so personally I feel the insignia on the Takara trailer is too small.

    I don't know if they'd release the original version of the mold. Ginrai has an objectively improved tooling, though it was obviously primarily to combine with Godbomber as a (very expensive) homage to Masterforce.

    Not always the case, sometimes the few differences just is not worth the extra dough and or to many not considered better. There are many Hasbro versions I'm perfectly fine with.

    I was thinking about ripping over to my local toyshop to grab this set, buuuuut I'm gonna do like I did with the single release stuff, and wait to see what Takara does.
    I think that's been working out well so far (except the worry that some things won't be released by Takara; and the vexation over the Minerva & Cab headmasters only being available in a new 2-pack of just-bought figures).

    What's this price look like to you guys? NT$3760 = CAD$168.58 = US$124.81 (Keep in mind, no shipping fees or taxes at the register): 變形金剛 世代系列 泰坦之戰 禮盒組 - 力量

    I'm sorry to hear that, bro. Really hope that you will find a money and get your figures, nobody should feel that stress and depression from being not able to get your favourite toys.:(

    I was thinking the same, especially since I am quite sure that Takara will be making their own version of Legends Metalhawk..

    We're in the middle of a move, too. I've decided to go the other way and just bury some extra TF purchases in the middle of massive moving/painting/upgrading costs. BBTS will just deliver a box to the new place the same day the movers do! Some day, I'll have impulse control

    We're in the middle of a move too, but I keep buying shit :lol 

    It's a slow move though. Right now the only Transformers at my current (old) house are the MP and CW displays, as well as my Lost Light display.

    Thank-you for your kind words and support.
    At least my new landlord is helpful to me for getting in my damage deposit and the first month of rent, and for this month and in July 98% of my paychecks is going to pay for rent including up to and including August rent. Which is why I won't have the funds available til mid August. But I'm becoming hopeful for extra funds cause my boss informed me that overtime is now approved and available, and I'm going to take advantage of this opportunity.

    Good luck on your move and upgrading!

    I had to cancel all of my preorders up to August so that no surprise payments will screw me over from paying the next 3 months rent and avoiding pissing off my new landlord in the process. First impressions and proof of my integrity for keeping my word to show I'm a worthy new tenant.

    Thank-you all for letting me vent and I'm feeling not as stressed since news of thus set was posted.

    Now to not go completely off topic; out of all the figures in this set, I already have Ginrai so I don't need another, but I really want Tidal Wave, so I'm hoping for a single release of him from someone someday. The other two I don't care for.

    For those who were chasing the set mainly for Ginrai, the God Ginrai Takara set with Cab and Minerva just went up for preorder on BBTS for $164.99!

    Yeesh, had I known that TT was going to release Godbomber and put him in a set, I'm still waiting for a MP Victory Leo (I'm looking at you TT), I'd would never had bought Ginrai those many months ago.

    Regardless to both iterations, I hope Reprolables releases a set with silver stripes for the trailer.
