    I read a few pages back that Amazon.jp will try 6 times, once a day for six days. Hopefully it goes through!

    Well there goes half of the MP-44\'s SRP.
    To Peter Cullen\'s talent fee :lolol 

    Some say MP-44 is overpriced. Now here\'s the possible reason why :lolol

    Yeah I know :(  maybe a couple of weeks according to the guy that messaged me. Plenty of time for me to appreciate a few reviews and set up my display.

    I hope so. Over a hundred dollars in savings is too good to let go.

    Same thing happened to me today. The thing is, with my bank, I get a text message asking me to reply with "accept" or "deny" the charge. Normally, as long as I hit "accept" within the first minute or so of getting that mesage, it goes through and everything's all good. The thing is... I happened to have a very important work meeting at the time I got the message, so my phone was on silent and I didn't get the notification until an hour later... I went through and "updated" payment, but now it's just not letting it through, and my bank's customer service is closed until Tuesday... I did get a .01 cent charge, so maybe now it'll go through.

    Read the room. The majority of the people here are excited for the figure and dredging up the same critiques doesnt create a meaningful dialogue anymore. Whatever perceived faults this may have are irrelevant. It is what it is. If you dont like it just let it go. No amount of complaints will change the reality of this toy is or people’s anticipation for it.

    Your naked condescension is obnoxious. You’re glad people find enjoyment from it on one side, but then characterize those same people as imbeciles (MUH CAHRTUN ACKRAT) for enjoying it. If you were actually happy for others and not looking to stir the pot you would have left your post with the opening paragraph and be done with it. But no you need to try to objectively prove the superiority of your tastes. Some of us like it, some of is dont it’s nothing to get angry about or belittle each other over.

    I might need to "update" my card info too. Funny enough, the fraud detection center also asked about my purchases at the grocery store I went to on the way home and they of course went through just fine as always.

    So for anyone who's seen the review, is MP-44 just loose or is the guy just not transforming it properly?

    What do you mean loose? Like his joints don't hold a pose?

    No, his joints are awesome, but when transforming it seemed like lots of things were flapping around loosely.

    AMAZING....really fills out the package for Prime. So happy to hear we are getting these clips! Well...not quite yet for me, lol...but when I do, eventually!

    B3 Prime is now officially perfect in my book.

    PS, those sound clips sound identical to the ones used in the 25th Anniversary OP with the autobot belt clip that had voice clips...ar least Cullen's lines and the transform sound.

    In 1 of the videos posted a few pages back, the torso/waist seemed loose/wobbly
