HE'S A HYDRA!
Back on topic: April is such a torturous wait to get my grubby hands on ol beautiful Studio Series badass Leader Grimlock. :
Anime Export. I must have emailed them 7 times in 2 days and no preorders.
If the paint is that good on the final release, might have to pick him up. Sculpt looks fantastic too, and really interested to see his transformation.
Man, the leaders in this line are killing it! Best I've seen in ages.
Have you tried other sites like BBTS etc? Or best wait for second hand market releases from Japanese online hobby shops like Mandarake or Jungle Collector's shop International?
Even if I had a BBTS account, it's not there right now. Plus, I want to get it at Anime Export because of the 30% off.
Doing the math, for the past year mind you... The 30% discount at AE is almost worthless after factoring in the high shipping costs and almost non-existant customer support and replacement options if something goes wrong.
This, coming from a guy with 7 months of MP's and LG's sitting in a POL @AE himself.
I have to choose either an arm, or a leg to ship it all now.
Last bbts haul I had shipped only cost me a fraction of what it used to... Like less than 10 bucks for roughly 400 bucks of product.
If these hit bbts, I will be shopping there... If I can get the preorder in before they sell out of course.
They're not out in Japan, yet. Why would you be sniffing around in Japan?
I never noticed that Grimlock's CGI model had two T-rex heads... nor did I notice it on the new toy, but now I know I can't stop staring at it.
What an utterly weird design choice. I guess they legitimately did not care about whether or not they actually looked like they transformed from their alt-modes.
Just want to reserve one as soon as possible. Because of the other 5 stores that had Blackout and sold out in hours, I don't want Anime Export to be next. I know I should just wait till April when they hit Retail. But with Blackout's popularity, you'd think he was like Turboman.
