    There's still hope. Takara has done MPs of figures that were simultaneously getting WfC style figures.

    Yup. No one's begging anyone to buy official product. If they're that mad, fine go buy the 3P stuff and the rest of us will discuss this one here.

    Ehm, no.
    30 cm should be the package max size (how are the carbot package misures?)

    It's also possible that he's packed at a diagonal in train mode order to use space more efficiently, which would potentially allow for a greater length.

    Also, for people not sure about Amazon JP or TTMall, Pulse will probably put up this listing (among others) by the end of the week.

    I didn't mean that the package was more than 30cm but the railtrack could be since in the CG renders it shows a line going down the middle of the track similar to the connector section at the front. It is possible that track is packaged in two pieces side by side or on to of each other so the train mode could be closer to 30cm than @Fort Max 's 23cm estimate.

    You'd think that, then look at what the MP BW cast cost.

    Looks promising interested in see how combined mode stands up with third party combiners either little short or same size as some third party combiners

    Looks beautiful if not quite as refined as we might like for the price. Really want to see scale confirmation of both robot height and combiner height.

    Ah, but the pack description says something about railroad A and railroad B, so this could totally be. And Shouki is packed in robot mode, then.

    Man, these look good.

    Too bad the price doesn't.

    I could be wrong but I think all MP figures sold directly by Takara are packaged in their alt modes.

    In the past there is a pretty big discount if you buy from Amazon JP directly for a preorder. Last year I got Tigatron for $180 US after shipping and taxes when the retail price was $226 before shipping and taxes. Right now the discount isn't applied yet but they have a preorder price guarantee.

    Depends on the figure, and I don't believe it varies by distributor(unless there was a one off instance it did).

    Evidently they are counting on shipping being through the roof by the summer
