    I've bought from them on eBay and had good experiences. For MP Wheeljack they included the amazon extra even though it wasn't listed on the auction.

    Was the paint change an effort to try and get the PM thing away? Because if it was, it'd be nice to have the old paint scheme back since the new one did absolutely nothing. The old one looked much better.

    I agree. I'm not looking forward to fixing what they've done. I'm not good enough to mix a perfect color match so I'll probably only be in the neighborhood.

    If TT is going to release Exhaust with that blocky colour scheme on the hood, then I'll just cancel my preorder and put it towards the MakeToys Hound instead. Besides, it won't be just the hood that I'll be repainting, but also the spoiler and other areas that TT decided to change. Might as well wait for a KO of Exhaust to be released so I can customize that instead.

    The spoiler is now more accurate to the real car...

    Thanks for the info. Now I can just concentrate on the hood. :)

    Indeed they were sneaky about the changes. Some are less accurate but some are more.

    I think he looks fine. It isn't ideal, but he is still cool.

    Ebay:
    An e-mail from Amazon Japan indicated that they would be changing the shipping date of Exhaust from Feb 28 to March 28. There was nothing in their e-mail about whether or not this was caused by a change in the general release, but one can assume that its highly likely.

    So if the Amazon Japan release date is now the Official release date, we have:

    Star Saber on March 21 (Last I Read)

    Exhaust on March 28

    That actually makes a little more sense, though a double release on the 21st would have been sweet.

    I actually prefer a March 28 release, that way I can wait till LG 13 Megatron before shipping.
    My Star Saber comes from AE, so that can ship separately.

    Crap. If it's the 28th and not the 21st, that means it'll fall just outside the time I have to ship my private warehouse at HLJ. The 21st fell just within the 60 day window.

    That sucks, dude. This is why delays are troublesome in professional business. Obviously understand it a bit more, but it is getting to be a real pattern with TakaraTomy.

    Ah, the mandatory delay. Surely none of you were surprised by it...

    Exhaust was originally going to be released in February, he was already moved to March (same release date as Star Saber).

    Ah well only another week I can live with that. I guess they must have smoothed things over with PM then. Now I need to see if Kapow are still gonna carry him, or if I need to go with my plan B...
