    The 50K yen SRP is too steep - especially with all the accessories shown - Takara knowing that Prime is super duper ultra popular from a business point of view, they will take advantage.

    Since Prime is my favorite Transformers + this looks too good - I will order one, just waiting for the JP sites pre orders to open up.

    The irony is you're totally ignorant it's the title of one of the greatest italian prog rock albums.

    Are you referring at the Banco of the mutuo soccorso album, which the title is an obvious reference to Charles Darwin, the father of the evolution theory? No, i was referring at your cromagnon attitude. Grow up.

    Grear proof of how you're good at 5 minutes google research!
    No, i was referring at your high horse attitude and tendency to lecture others about how they have to behave and what they can post.
    Come down from your pedestal, grow a thicker skin and go somewere else if you don't like what you're reading.
    And feel free to use the ignore button.
    Good night.

    Maybe you will understand Better: Sei serio? Cresci, l'atteggiamento da bimbominkia ti servirà a poco. :)  E non preoccuparti, non ho bisogno di Google. And please, feel free to use the ignore button you too :) . Good night.

    serissimo. Non venire a dirmi cosa posso o non posso fare o scrivere per una battuta della quale ignori i retroscena e presupposti, trattasi di compito che non ti spetta, termini come bimbominkia o cro magnon usali coi tuoi conoscenti e fatti una bella terrinozza di fatti tuoi. Cumpri?
    Thanks for your collaboration and good night :)

    What's Hasbro got to do with this? At this stage of the game anyway? They've never released a figure this absurdly priced!

    Takara certainly won't get a dime from me, and I'm not impressed by the figure enough to get the theoretical more-realistically priced Hasbro release, but a boycott over one figure is a bit much.

    So, you have to grow a ticker skin after all, and if you don't have the ability to interact with other people after that crybaby point, make a 4 person only forum, and stay there with your friend. For me, the point Is over. Good night.

    Nope, because the Floro Dery aesthetic is poopy garbage that should stay in the 80s and there are far better (and more) toys I could get for that amount of money.

    Wow. MP10 really is the best looking of the three versions. MP44 would be better in a toy-based deco rather than toon-based. The grey faceplate and waist stripe
    make it look cheap.

    The more I see of MP44, the happier I am with MP10.

    Don't lose any sleep over it. It's only darwin. If he was a transformer he'd be a D-lister. You know the type that has no chance of an MP version ever being made ;)

    I don't either. I only have the YOTH MP-10 misb, and have no interest in replacing them.

    If the price drops by about 2/3, and Takara offers a less bland deco, perhaps. But as things stand now, not likely.

    Am I buying MP44? Nope, SUPER EASY pass for me before they announced the insane price for it. I don't need, nor want, another trailer and all those accessories are just pointless to me. Even if they cut out the stupid accessories and pointless trailer I still hate the look of it, he comes off as a cheap looking knock off. No thanks. I'll stick my superior MP10 but invest some of this "MP44" money into getting the Shadowfisher arm upgrade kit for it and be done with my Masterpiece Prime. I don't need this, just like how I didn't need the "masterpiece" Shockwave nor Megatron (easy passes for me too, look terrible to me).

    That's still over $300, though. For a toy. That's $300 I could put towards other things that won't just sit in a display case.

    I'd consider an MP-44+, but he'd have to have a large discount even then. He gets sub-$250, then we'll talk.
