    I'm ready to pre-order this guy. Does anyone happen to have a handy list of all the websites that still have it available for pre-order and/or which is the cheapest option.

    Yes. Originally, all controllers and hardware was first party. Any accessory not made by Nintendo was a 3rd party.
    Breakdown would be....
    1st Party... Nintendo. The systems, Mario, Zelda, etc games made by Nintendo's core developers.
    2nd Party... Game Freak's Pokemon brand. Nintendo owns a controlling interest in the property, but doesn't own the company. Any game made by a studio not owned by Nintendo but financed and directly controlled by Nintendo, such as Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 or Koei's Zelda game "Hyrule Warriors".
    3rd Party... officially sanctioned brands such as Capcom, Konami, Square Enix, Electronic Arts... as well as unlicensed controllers and accessories by Pelican, Walmart's ONN brand, etc.

    If someone makes larger wings... More specifically, a larger RING (in planet mode) AND the light up with yellow LEDs, I'd THROW money at that designer!!!

    At the designer? I could design them and so could a lot of people. Easily. The trick is getting anybody to actually manufacture them.

    Personally, I like the size of his wings in bot mode. I agree he could use a larger planet ring but I'm not sure if it'd be a good trade off with what it would do to his bot mode. Plus you'd need a new stand since the existing one wouldn't fit anymore.

    Was speaking with a Taobao seller and they were also saying the head is seperate. Taobao prices are only ballpark for the body (14xx yuan) and the head will be extra. They weren't sure of the cost though for the head

    Welp, if they're showing packaging shots, that means it's time to pay the balance. Really wasn't expecting this guy for a while yet.

    Yes, it's included in their listing. Meaning if you buy from them, you're buying the head and the body. But it comes to them from the factory separately.

    i wonder if that means two separate shipments. I ordered early & got free shipping from Show.Z, & everyone here seems happy with them.

    Back in my day, we just infringed copyright. Who the hell cares about a lawsuit when you have cool wings and a head.

    No product thread can go long without some discussion of its legality.
