    I'm curious if BBTS would carry this... TE-01 was never carried by the US online sellers?

    Not true.

    Agabyss > Search

    https://www.toydojo.com/search.php?search_query=te-01&x=0&y=0

    They may not carry the multiple re-issues like TE-01 but they all carried TE products. BBTS like other US sellers don't carry every product like I've seen with some 3P/4P products but I've only seen that on the legend stuff. With this Mirage, I would suspect they'll all have it. It would be foolish for them not too.

    What do you mean, TFS, Toy Dojo and TCP all carried him. I mean, they quickly ran out of him, but they sold him. I got my SG and Nemesis versions of TE-01 from TFS.

    Why would you want to go through BBTS anyways?

    They’ll get it a week or two after ToyDojo, TCP and the like, and then it’ll take another 2 days of just sitting in the warehouse and then another 3~5 days with their shipping.

    If you want it the fastest, order from an Asian retailer. If you want to get it stateside, go with ToyDojo or TCP.

    It wasn't that long at all from memory. A few months or so.

    Just seeing this, and wasn’t going to read nearly 400 messages on Christmas. Is there a guess at retail price or release date?

    Nope on both. We only have their prime to guess off of, so general assumption is it will be less than that.

    If I had to guess... it will be about 90 bucks and probably be released some time in the 2nd quarter.

    Think he looked better to me unpainted, something looks off with color. Mirage should kind of have the long legs/shorter torso look, he almost looks bit too stocky for Mirage.

    I just transformed TE01 last night for the first time...and it was probably the most satisfying transformation I’ve ever done, the wizardry! While I’ll wait for reviews I’m probably on board for this one too :D

    Not super keen on the blue. Needs to be darker. Would also prefer a matte grey to the silver. Also missing some white accents on the waist and crotch. The face is also a little off.

    I agree that it looks a little off proportionally. The chest is a little hollow, which doesn’t help. Still, it does some things better than the MMC so I’m still interested. TE listened to feedback on its Prime ahead of the release and made changes for the better, so there’s still time.
