    That looks awesome with the parallel towers. I was planning on getting Overlord, now I feel like I need Sky Shadow too.:D

    Hmm, so if you live in the US, the best price right is at Captured Prey @ $225 (minus the 3% loyalty discount)?

    Pretty much.
    Captured Prey = 225 *.03 = 6.75 = 225 - 6.75 = $218.25
    TCP = $5 credit on every $150 is roughly 0.0334 %
    The Chosen Prime = $230 *.0334 = 7.68 = 230 - 7.59 = $222.32

    Nothing final yet though. There may be a drastic price drop from vendors if LG-43 isn't any different from the Hasbro Trypticon.
    I might save on one item from one vendor but if I save overall from say, the TCP, on my other items, it just works out better to stay with one vendor.
    Now if there was like a $15 difference, then I would talk to my favorite vendor and they would probably adjust (probably would be adjusted before I asked when it was time to ship).

    This ended up being $274 shipped from Amiami, had to bow out. Hope they don't cancel my account, but I can't swing that with such minimal differences from the Hasbro release.

    So is that a lead-in comic or the pack-in one?

    So the girl is Nightbeat Minerva? And she's a Decepticon? Cool.

    And was that Clouder(Double Dealer's Powermaster) with the army of Tankors and Octanes? Oh, I get it. Maybe it's a joke because they're both called Tankor because Hasbro can't hold onto a copyright.

    Also, why's Blackarachnia all bandaged up? Is that in reference to something from the last comic? I wish someone would put up all the Legends comics, translated, in order, in one place so I can read them all.

    You can now get the hasbro version for $135 free ship to store at Walmart.com.

    I see no major differences that'd justify the extra cost. Full Tilt is still mostly purple which surprises me. Am I missing something here that others are willing to pay double for, or is it just the Takara loyalist mindset?

    Takara Kup? Now there's a difference worth paying for, of which I'm patiently waiting on to come in stock and ship from bbts.

    This? Might as well throw some money in the garbage.

    Probably from being launched by Trickdiamonds Quake Shield on page four.

    I either missed some comics, or they've made some jumps.

    I know it's japan and all that, but has Chromia actually done anything since joining Tera Kura?
    When did the Sweeps get their own Transtectors? Last I saw they were all still fighting over Scourges.
    I'm still uncertain who Nightbeat Minerva works for, or if she's with whomever she thinks is winning.
    I wasn't aware Tankorr had been mass produced, if that was seen before.

    And we head into a "Decepticon" Civil War.

    When I am disgusted of some repugnant things that IDW does to females in their comics, I'm always looking forward to read some Takara Tomy manga(even though I am unable to understand what the characters say due to my very limited knowledge of Japanese, desu)
    _________
    I really would like to purchase this version of Trypticon just to get the manga, but the lack of differences and mainly the price won't let me do this. Gonna get the Hasbro one, then!
