    Japan yeah... Government not in your business there ^^/
    You can't carry a long pocket knife there. (not that you need to in most places, but still nannish state-ish)

    On the other hand you can carry around a Apollyon or very realistic Air soft gun ^^/ Not to say the cop may question / detain you if you are walking around pointing it at people, but they won't shoot you on the spot either unless there damn sure it is real.

    The US... well it is tough... cops gotta protect themselves and guns are just plentiful and accessible... plus you have people that have no business being cops... But you can still move a Megatron with an orange cap in him so there is still hope ^^/

    Takara and Hasboro would make a new gun Megs in a second because it would sell like hot cakes in the US and elsewhere... but it is a different world now.. Giant Hasbro won't do it because they risk is just stupid to do as big as they are... and there is no reason for TT to refuse Hasbro's request else it would hurt the relationship with their Transformer relationship...

    Yes.. I think you got it! XTB IS Takara Tomy! YES it all makes sense finally. Good Show!



    All Hail Megatron...

    If you don't mind me asking, where do you live? People from other countries seem to think that everyone from the USA is packing heat. That is so far from the truth it isn't even funny. Our constitutution allows us to own firearms but please remember it is because we have the right to stand up to a tyrannical government not just because we can go to the mall and rob the place. That's why we hold those amendments so dear to our hearts.

    Well this is a state law, not federal law, remember. And this country's laws can be a bit over the top at times, but overall it's a good place to live =)

    We;ve been through this pages at a time but Megatron not getting a remake is nothing to do with being a gun. They're not hasbro; there's no problem with Gun Megatron in their market. It's more about sales and how villain characters don't sell so well, hence why they've slipped one in every now and then but they haven't done a whole lot of Decepticons/Destrons lately (see also the complete lack of a domestic MP11SW or equivilent post MP6 Skywarp).

    This is one of the most interesting aspects of Japanese culture (regarding collectibles), in my opinion. I used to collect SH Figuarts of Kamen Riders and Super Sentai (til they oversaturated the market and it got far too expensive), but something that always bothered me was the lack of villains. What's the good in having heroes if they have no one to fight?

    Really, really curious cultural mentality.

    I do business between the USA and Japan... so almost half and half right now <sigh>


    You are right and a very good post... I didn't want thhat to come across as everyone is packing in the USA... which is far from the truth... My point was just the amount and availability of guns is quite high, even for the ones that shouldn't have them. When police are overwhelmed by this and understaffing of well trained, skilled law enforcement in conjuction with political correctness, it is a receipe for banned Megatrons ^^/

    I don't think the US government is tyrannical, but it could get there if not watched. There just is a lot of incompetence on so many levels of law enforcement and government as a whole that it just leads to the prior. Existing law and rule must be followed (constitution) or else it is over for the republic.

    If we just had some type of giant robot dictator who turned into a gun we could all hail.

    +1 wow - that explains a lot. There's a 4 to 1 ratio on new Autobot vs new Decepticons coming out. Heroes are not heroes without villains.

    Same with Macross - you can get high end versions of all the Earth robots but only 1 Zentraedi battlepod.

    The US government has automatic weapons and armoured vehicles, and increasingly so does does law enforcement. The self-defence and hunting arguments make more sense.

    Seems more likely XTB will re-release stuff than FT, possibly in the same way Hegemon was with fewer accs.

    Why would that make you feel ripped off?

    I can't even imagine a KO version of this figure. You thought you had replacement part issues before ? Lol . You'd feel really ripped off if you were to buy an even cheaper version of this figure.


    Edit* Ann I just seen that they actually DID KO this guy lol ...umm ? Wow.... An it's supposed to be made even better ? ( of course they have to tell you that to get you to buy it ) ...

    Agreed. And lol at the last sentence. But it does suck that some places won't allow people to own Apollyon. He's such a great figure.

    I'm really curious if they have replacement + pegs for the silencer. That should really be a thing.

    TFSource stated that they didn't have any extra Apollyon's for parts. They have a master list going that they send to XTransbot and will send out replacement parts when they get them from them from XT.

    I''m perfectly fine with that. Can't blame TFSource for not holding back stock.
