    No, I'm pretty sure he meant he wants more McDonald's happy meal toys.

    So I slept on pre-ordering this guy, and now it looks like HLJ and Anime-Export are sold out. What's the next best place price-wise that is still available to preorder?

    I think Rhinox is worse than Rattrap. Rattrap's height is just about right, but Rhinox should be midway between Dinobot and Optimus. Takara might be able to pose their Beast Wars figures like that, but I sure can't.

    I know it won't happen, and I may be in the minority, but I would LOVE to see that. OptoBats was such a great concept it almost makes me sad we didn't get a show counterpart to the toy. Have him either in black all dark and brooding like modern Batman, or in the bluish gray of sixties TV Batman and have him say "BAM" and "KAPOW" as he's fightin' preds.

    Or god damn both as twins/brothers that annoy the hell out of each other yet team up spectacularly well in battle. OMG, I wish I could draw worth a crap I'd start working on a comic book version of this immediately!

    Such a missed opportunity.

    My order through Amazon Japan comes out to $256 AUD delivered. At least, based on current exchange rates, depends on what happens between now and July. Is your price locked in?

    You have to make an account and then set it to display in English and there's a currency converter, etc. But it's under $200 USD shipped (full price,) so worth it imo.

    Whaat? sold out at AE and HLJ with all that price gouging? I was so sure the price was going to drive it down to deep discount.

    AE has preorder deadline on their orders, you can’t order once it passes that date

    All joking aside, I am pleased it sold so well at HLJ at least.

    Good god, easy pass!.

    That dino mode it's atrocious that only a mother could love it, robot mode looks nice though, but not for 260$.


    Luck with that!.

    For what?, if im thinking something, no one should be forced to agree with it, i respect any form of mind, even the different to mine, if someone thinks this it's a holy grail or the best thing after the food, okay, i respect that, but for me, this thing just isn't worth 260$, i don't want to prove anyone to be wrong if they disagree with me.

    Well then hook me up to a breast pump asap coz I must be that raptor's baby mama!

    $260 is a bit ott which is probably why the majority of us have bought from the sites that put him up for about $180. If you're into MPs, you should shop around to find the best deals.
