    Can't you just tell them to unhold the card? Amazon just charges 1 yen to verify the card.

    just thought of something - pretty sure this prime wasn’t meant to be an eventual magnus repaint with working armor. i needs me an ultra magnus mp with white prime, and mp combiners before they keep remaking the same cast over and over again

    I too have jumped on the Amazon Japan bandwagon and placed my pre-order through them. Final price for me came out to $313.78 USD NOT $449.99. I live in the middle of the United States in Olathe, Kansas. Crazy that I originally planned on ordering it through Bigbadtoystore and just saved myself $136.21 by using Amazon Japan instead. There are other options out there for people who want this figure at a much cheaper cost instead of the usual US based toy/figure sites.

    Surprisingly, I don't really mind the look of Sideswipe. Although I wouldn't mind buying a V2, I believe the current one blends in well enough for me to be satisfied.

    The fact that it costs this much yet has that large of a backpack and that amount of ugly panel lines is ridiculous.... The 2 3rd party options are extremely clean, and even freaking MP-10 is cleaner on the back.... Are we sure this isn't a downgrade? cause for 350-450, This ain't nowhere near worth it.

    I wanted to hate this figure because of the cost. Still think the cab is a panel-line mess, but that bot mode bro... I resent/love takara for making me consider this purchase.

    I preordered on AJ this morning. I was bummed over losing my dog, and decided to cheer myself up a bit.

    Sorry to hear that. I went through it 4 years ago - one of the worst experiences in my 43 years, worse feeling than going through a divorce. One day at a time.

    350-400? I think you've missed the last few pages bud. Either way enjoy the third party options, the fact we have so much choice is awesome.

    The price will fluctuate over time and you get whatever the lowest price is between now and when it’s released. I ordered BW Megatron for 28,418JPY shipped and now it’s 24,706 JPY. Quite a difference and you cannot beat the shipping price for the size of TF boxes. Shipping a single other figure costs more from almost any import site.
