    As of today, the price you quoted for Tigatron is the Amazon price before shipping. This is going to be my first MP scale combiner. I hope this is gonna be worth it at the end of the day.

    Got mine Pre ordered from AJP. Can not wait for this and rest of the team. Been a big fan of the trainbots ever since I got the headmasters on vhs.

    And with that price, it's bye Hastak, hello Moon Studios or TW if they are still making Raiden. Now if these MPs get the usual KO treatment, maybe I'd be interested.

    TFSource is what happens when scalpers start a business.

    $210 isn't that much more than what Amazon JP is charging, right? I'm no fan of TFS, but this doesn't seem egregious .

    That is the case for most of them, my MP-11 Starscream was in Bot Mode. I think for certain figures they put them in bot mode, Megatron for example.

    When the discount kicks in on Amazon JP it will be way less than any US retailer. $190 shipped today but I think it will be close to $160-170.

    Man, I really want to have some confirmed sizes for bot mode and the full combiner before I commit to 6 of these guys.

    Pretty sure Ono was credited with being partly responsible or responsible for the original trainbots

    30cm is very close to HO scale. (1/87.1)

    (real thing 25,150mm according to wikipedia)

    **self-edit/correction**. Not technically a locomotive, so removed descriptor.

    Megatron makes sense since it turn into a real-life gun. Imagine trying to ship through thousands of realistic looking gun toys through international customs?

    This guy looks good but I don’t get into combiners without knowing some details like the height or seeing renders of the characters. Hope it goes well though, I wanna see what else they do with the line.

    Current price at Amazon Japan for me including shipping is 195 USD. If you take off a pre-order discount of 25% before shipping and then add shipping again, then the price for me will be 150 USD. Times six Trainbots, makes a total of 900 USD including shipping. Where people get prices from of up to 1300 USD...!? Why would anyone choose to pay that...!? You don't have to.

    I’m guessing this weekend or Figure King. He’s not updated yet on the Takara transformer site, so there may be something this weekend.Too many questions to leave stuff up in the air, especially when people aren’t that comfortable with recent QC.
