I suppose I'm a sap too? For elbows and G1 guns its worth it!
Just cannot justify the difference in the price over the Hasbro version.
The elbows and guns just do not make up for the increase in price.
Another sap here too I guess. Pre-Ordered.
Too bad AE doesn't allow SAL option when the weight is over the 2kg range, only EMS. You'll have to do your shipping estimate with the higher priced faster option.
Good job with the heads up, guys. I'm not too surprised the bigger US shops have opened up preorders, but i am going to have to wait to see what AE and HLJ have in mind. I am willing to pay the BBTS price but with shipping, the CDN dollar and almost guaranteed border fees or tax, its worth the wait to see what the asian shops will offer. Hopefully, under 250 CDN with shipping.
I wonder how much longer they'll wait? Hopefully not too long.
Another sap here, reporting two more of these as being preordered.
Sap reporting in for duty. I P/O just to cover my bases, but that's what I do anyway. Besides the December wait is actually good news since I eagerly await Tracks and Rage release.
Yep, I'm on the sap train. I'm more than willing to pay the increased price for the set that I want. IMO, better paint apps and additional tooling make the price difference worth it. I'm only getting one set, so might as well be the set that I'll be happy with.
well said; + me
Want to join you saps so badly. But my $500 Hercules stylishly cripples my wallet. Maybe if one of you gets buyers remorse and wants to sell locally at a major discount and also wash my car as long as I'm dreaming...
im a sap too. but count me in for one takara and one hasbro. Takara for bot form and hasbro for the combined devastator . Now the question is, can I fit devastator in my ikea detolf
Looks like the saps have it!
SAPPHIRE LEGION FOR THE WIN!
Although that sounds like a girls' toyline from the 80s with magical flying horses that never shot laser beams from their eyes in the cartoon even though they obviously could.
I have Herc and love him to bits, but the Prowlastator add-on means I can have the TakTom one as a different character....oops. Somewhere out there BBTS is laughing...
PO'd and if BBTS puts him on sale next spring, will double dip.
Dunno if it's already been posted but, TFsource has it too.
You get "free shipping" as well. AKA about 4-7 dollars off. ;_;
What's their deal? Pay upfront or later? Is it easy to cancel preorders like BBTS?
I just put a pre order for 180$ hasbro devastator then i when i came home a local hobby shop posted online they will be having a takara devastator for 200$ lols. Well since the wait is too long i guess ill push on with hasbro then will get takara for dec.
It's up on anime-export. About $146 pay up front, then whatever shipping in Dec.
Just placed my order.
The shipping will probably be 40 to 50% of its retail price T_T
Ironically the usual Japanese sites (Amiami, Hobby Search, HLJ) has not posted preorder yet.
Please explain the irony?
Anyhow, my pre-order went with the cheapest one I'm going to be able to get: that's definitely going to be AE. Always been good to me, and shipping rates are very fair with them. Saying it will be 40 to 50% of retail price is absolute BS, that's for sure. Perhaps you should check the huge 'shipping calculator' button underneath the AE listing, which links directly to Japan Post.
