    Ive never shopped takara mall myself but i have a feeling its not much different than premium bandai. You might need to find whats called a middleman. Basically it could be someone who happens to live in japan that you have mutual trust with or a business such as amiami, mandarake, and cs toys. I cant guarentee the name places have takara mall but its worth a shot to check out just in case.

    Welp, fiddling around with Earthrise Arcee for the first time, and I can sadly say she's probably the worst figure I've gotten in a while. I mean, she LOOKS nice enough in robot mode, if you can forgive the enormous backpack. Headsculpt is great, and the sculpting and proportions on her torso are pretty good too.

    But everything else is terrible. Her transformation, her balance, her floppy ankles (that'll only get worse over time), her engineering. The way she just sort of wads up under her car shell without enough room for everything, and without enough proper, satisfting places for things to peg into place. Even her weapon won't clip in on the vehicle mode for me (just needs nail polish, but come on, this shouldn't be rocket science...).

    I hope that, with this toy and the MP coming out this year, we can close the book on the G1 Arcee design. She needs a design overhaul, to give her chunkier proportions that can better accommodate vehicle mode parts. Because this "smush skinny robot up under gigantic car shell" thing has gotten old.

    Oh, I will say this nice thing about her: unlike Cliffjumper, I at least appreciate that she doesn't NEED to partsform to transform. That's nice, and makes the partsforming a lot more forgiveable.

    still needs a little neatening up, but painted the tiny prime (5p coin for scale)

    Oh yeah that Centurion figure/amazing set of weapons bots accessories, I totally missed out on, bc it was in the 3 to 4 weeks I didn't have a phone or go online at all. Ugh Such an idiot! Such an awesome set! I hope it gets another run

    (you don't know where to get one, do you? :) )

    I've probably missed this in conversation but when does Airwave come out in the US, if he hasn't already? My son was counting on him for his birthday but I can't find him anywhere, even though Walmart shows him in stock on their website.

    Some retailers have started shipping online pre-orders on him (I received mine from Target recently), but others have delayed that wave until next month (namely Pulse). They've been spotted in store at Target, but by very few people - they're nowhere near hitting saturation at retail yet.

    My airwave preorder from Amazon just shipped. I think Target has also been shipping him out over the last week or two. Still have not seen wave 2 in stores yet though.

    I dunno, I like it, but the minor differences aren't that big, and while I am not a G1 hardliner who insists it looks G1, I like that what we got looks damn close to the original. This version looks more like the CW version.

    I have to disagree, that is messy looking.

    A lot of concept art for Transformers toys look messy, but are often watered down in release. CW Skylynx is a pretty obvious example. I prefer the concept art for ER Lynx because... I sorta hated skylynx’s design to a certain extent? He just look a goose’s head on a space shuttle and it always looked silly. The art really does try to make him look cool and succeeds it. I still love ER Sky Lynx, but that concept art is just... rad

    I'm more than happy with the Sky-Lynx we got.

    Even paid full price for him with no regrets whatsoever. :D
