    Possible but unlikely. We’ll get our next round of ML announcements next month at TakaraTomy’s 40th anniversary event.

    Sorry for bumping this but thanks for the link. I bought this when MP-44 was teased. I am definitely getting this for MPG-09 pics!

    Kind of annoyed that the shipping for this book costs more than the book itself now. I like buying these every year but the total cost is getting nuts.

    You have to order it with the other stuff. Not everything bundles together well, yku can see some pretty outrageous shipping prices on stuff < cough> mafex, but Takara products tend to bundle well,

    I swear, every time I see the word "Mook" show up in these thread titles I think we're getting some generic cannon fodder Decepticon.

    In my experience AJP do not reduce the price for shipping much when bundling because they always ship everything separate anyway. And the only thing releasing anywhere near this book that I’m buying from AJP is MP Rhinox and I would need to cancel my Rhinox order and re-order with the book and I will then most likely miss out on the discount for Rhinox or I’m past the deadline and cannot cancel anyway.

    But seriously, my thinking is that AJP are trying to discourage international buyers because the shipping has been ridiculous and they also overcharge me for import taxes now on every purchase by at least $30 and do not refund my money for 6 months after delivery. It’s been forcing me to switch to AE.

    This is my order
    20240414_144631.jpg
    Combined total 6293 yen
    Individually 4861+4604+3516= 12953 saved 6660. It doesn't work for everything they sell, I have tried to put some orders together and there was little change, but Takara stuff for the most part seems to work, unless it's an extremely large package its normally an additional 1000-1500 yen for each additional item .

    Yeah I did an experiment and it did drop around 2000 Yen from my shipping. I’m thinking about canceling MP Rhinox if it will let me and combine it with the book. Still too expensive shipping but better. Thanks!

    FWIW, shipping out of Japan has become much more expensive in general over the past few years. Especially to the US. Double whammy of COVID and then the weak Yen.

    Yes but I’m used to paying for shipping based on size and weight of the package. AJP is charging me the same shipping for the magazine as they are for MP Rhinox which seems absurd. I’m sure it has to do with the contract DHL has with AJP but it still stings.

    I doubt it will be Missing Link, but it could be something like another Bridge set, think along the lines of a Origins Wheeljack and Bumblebee combo to go along with the bridge set from More Than Meets The Eyes pilot.

    God, last year I spend like $25 in shipping to get a Legends Nighbird from Japan, shipping is insane. A decade ago I was importing Airsoft parts and barely paid anything close to that.

    Holy smokes people are preordering products with absolutely zero info about them besides a placeholder name and a temporary store page? How often do you people fall for credit card scams?

    This is not new, these books are legit, it is also AJP.


    Sorry you got scammed by some Nigerian dude but your statement is stupid.

    They've annually released these mooks for the past two decades or so, what are you on about?

    Well excuse me for not immediately ordering something which pops up on a store page with no information.

    Seriously it hasn’t even been officially announced and people are immediately going “preordered.”
