Because he is not being released by hasbro in the west...
Welcome to the club.
Is that same as what happened with Primal and Cheetor?
Sorry, i'm being thick, i've only just discovered how limited the pre-orders were for him, and was hoping to buy him from my usual retailer upon release.
Yes. No Takara MPs are really released in the west by Hasbo except for the MPM figures.
Hasbro in general are kinda gunshy about releasing Masterpiece toys in the west, mainly due to their much higher price when compared to most retail Transformers toys. They had a golden opportunity to localize Primal back in 2016 for Beast Wars 20th anniversary and never took it, which leads me to believe they have no intentions of localizing any of them, especially in a post-toys 'r us world.
Ages 3 & Up
(Baba, Netclow, Rub, etc…)
(& Toy Dojo, even tho I have yet to buy from them)
I've bought from all of them, but only a few were Pre-Orders…
Which store will usually get the product IN, and shipped to the US in the Timeliest Fashion?
Get it from wherever is cheapest.
You'll get it faster from Amazon Japan or AmiAmi than you would HLJ though.
Also most times you'll be stopped mid check out if you did add the order to your cart from a 3rd party seller on Amazon Japan. Most if not all of them don't ship international. But I think Amazon Japan still has some Dinobots left for preorder. Not at the lowest price it has been, but should still be cheaper shipped than US retail. And you'll get it faster too.
thanks for the info. And ordered Dinobot a hour or two ago can't wait also wonder how maybe BW mp we will get over G1 like you predicted for this year lol.
Nippon yasan just messaged to say the release date was moved from the 31st to the 28th - not sure if that was a known thing or not, but it was new to me and 3 days less is 3 days less!
Mind sharing that link? When I search for him I can't find it offered by Amazon.
here you go
Appreciate it. Seems like I missed the window in the end haha. Ah well, thanks anyways!
IDK how you guys got it that cheap. I pre-ordered mine the same day and mine says 21,353. So about $10 difference. lucky.
Its always been the 28th, rule of thumb, last saturday of the month.
I like to think the hunch evokes that "weight of the universe on your shoulders" slouch like posture.
And your new avatar had me fooled for a second, I though somewhere Dinobot II was being tackled again but that's just how good the original head sculpt is.
Yep. I can totally get behind that reasoning too.
And yeah, the details on the resin are super crisp. It's amazing what got dulled from sculpt to mold on these older BW toys.
That 21,353 includes shipping, check again , Dinobot himself is 18,821
Unfortinatley, I don't think that's going to be possible because the back, head and front are all connected as a single piece.
I know, but others have posted cheaper yen to which I thought included shipping. I guess I was mistaken. Could have sworn they showed a $10 difference that's all.
