    I have the MS and MP-44 and I couldn't pass up on this price. Does anyone know what version of the mold it will be?

    I two copies of TE-01 already. V2 and V4. I'm SERIOUSLY considering buying 3rd just because that price is stupid cheap. I may paint his paints silver to match my MS-01X and MP44 KO Silver Edition. LOL.

    Amazing surprise,I was already tempted by SG version returned on Showz...but I already have SIEGE SG version and for a MP version,as first toy I prefer the heroic one :D  .I even left both legends OP on preorder because this one is much bigger,Optimus need a MP version on collection before buying eventual tiny ones and price is the best thing.
    Appears that both heads are still confirmed,impatient to give him a lot of poses!

    Lol it’s a horrible price if you preorder it rather than pay full price. They won’t take the $20 deposit off the price apparently. Ends up being just as expensive as it used to be if you don’t pay in full right now.

    Thought they specified in the listing they won’t take it off.

    NO ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ how come I paid $70 full price
    and You only need to pay $69.99?
    That's such a horrible price for people paid in full!
    I will cancel my order then preorder again!

    You probably mis-read this one "This Listing is NOT Eligible For Double Deposit Discount Pre-Order Program"
    It just means you won't have the normal pre-order deposit matching.

    Ah shit definitely misread. Forgot they match smaller deposits. Nvm then.

    (kinda weird how it’s non refundable tho… like we don’t. Get it back if it never releases?)

    Oh man, I was about to pull the trigger on the regular TE-01 when I saw the SG version is... $5 more and shipping now.

    I could, in theory, buy the SG one now and then grab the regular version when it comes in stock in november/december but man...

    Are there any issues with the different model version I need to know about or is it all minor running fixes.

    That was a concern brought up in their ShowZStore thread and facebook post. They have yet to answer in either one. I suspect if it doesn't fall through on their end, they give it back in credit (or to payment method if you ask)

    When a store has a non-refundable deposit that just means if you cancel your order. Presumably they're doing it because of that 1000 minimum order. Say there's not enough orders but you really want it: you get 1000 people who have no intention in buying to put in pre-orders so they meet their minimum order and then they all cancel when the store gets their order filled and they're left holding the bag. This is just their way of protecting themselves from losing out.

    I always wanted one but got the MP-44 KO instead, then sold that and got a MP49 instead so I could use a red MP OP, just placed deposit.
