    Not for you, but someone in japan will get there 8% before checking out.

    They sell alot on yahoo jp, which unless ypu have a proxy you pretty much have to be living in japan, as they take only japanese payment services and ccs

    Those new pics are absolutely glorious. Wow. So, as expected, price from export etailers is something like $325-370 USD. Still can't afford it personally, but at least that's a fair sight better than MSRP.

    I\'m a G1 fan.... But this is too much for me, I guess I no longer identify with the 100% 80s look.  I think I\'m liking Travis\'s version more.  Who\'d have thought of it?  

    But it is quite amazing.  I\'ll have to be happy with my MP10.  But if they could bring it down without the accessories... Around $200 I might..... Might reconsider.

    I am not that impressed. Sunstreaker and Megatron are more impressive than 44

    True. He looks so out of place, it’s not even funny.

    A great opportunity to show off Hound missed by TT.

    There's something weirdly ironic about how we finally get bright baby blues on an MP Prime along with painted roof lights, but the forearm arrows are unpainted.

    Wait until people have him in hand. Most people weren't super wowed by Sunstreaker, either, until they actually handled him.

    The legs on this guy, for example, are doing some crazy things.

    If I order from Anime Export, I have 14 days to come up with that money, plus 14 days to decide if I really want it.

    Why? It was the rumoured rrp and it turned out to be the correct rrp.

    I hope to get one from AE. But the matter is if I pay will they have enough at the end, if I can get the money in time and do I really need it?

    Yep, same happened with Megatron, right? Only the "wow" came when the paint rubbed off and there were problems with the figure, right? :eek: 

    For $350-450, this toy would need to be PERFECT.

    It won't be.

    That's too much money for something that will have issues. I just don't see Takara properly testing the final product or doing good QC. Have they been doing good QC? I'm saying it would probably be smart to read a few reviews and verify there are no issues. Otherwise...

    Still, if you guys think $400+ is not a problem for this toy, I can only imagine what the add-on's (or fixes) will cost! :eek:
