    Three years is a bit hyperbole. However, the scheduled 2 years for 6 figures can easily become 2,5 years. But, let’s see.

    I really like this. I really would like to get this. But the price is the only problem for me. I can\'t justify paying that price.

    I know these are MP's and I love Raiden and Trains, but the price point to complete him is just too much. Beautiful figures though. Maybe in a few years we'll get a set of these in the Legacy line or they'll be a HasLab down the line.

    Original paint scheme was indeed ivory, only switched to pure white later on.

    Does this apply to MPG-01 Shouki’s prototype?

    Well, it's still a nice looking train.

    All signs point to "yes. That color is the actual color of the train that Shouki is intended to represent."

    But, yes, it's kind of off-putting to me, as well.

    There are so many 3d printing options out there already I'm sure something will get designed and put on shapeways/cults3d at some point

    The general lack of underside kibble is insane. Virtually a perfect alt mode IMHO.

    The lighting they use in these twitter photos are notorious for washing out and muting colors

    Stock photos seem to match the irl coloring. Seems like it’s just a really off white for the train.

    The yellowish is just fine(kind of prototype-ish since no actual box?). If you have seen shinkalion(z), train detail is fine.
