  1. I have sold a bunch of items on MW. All pleasant, positive successful transactions. I have been mentioned and thanked multiple times in the SSL thread but my name has never been added to the list.  Would I be eligible to sell if it was changed to SSL only?


    I have bought from and sold to mods and several well known, prolific posters here. 

  2. No QC issues with my copy. No cracks, breaks or anything else.  Super solid all around.  Looks and feels great.  Very satisfied with the purchase.  I don't think its better than the SOC…just different.  I love both. 


  3. I'm not talking about extra fees. I'm talking about pre order prices.  Even if they were talking about extra fees, they would be charged that amount on top of what ever figure they bought. Fees are not exclusive to Takara products.   I believe Meteor was around $170 or so. Mp-52 is available for around $200 without shipping.  That is only a $30 difference in the base price...not $275. 

    if you don't like mp-52, thats fine. You don't have to. But don't add $75 to the pre order price and say its too expensive or not worth the extra money. 

    I know there are huge price differences in canada and australia and other parts of the world. I am just talking about shipping to the states and paying with the dollar.  No one is charging $275 for mp-52. 

  4. Mp-52 isn't $275. Amazon Japan and Amiami have him for $202.  Hlj has him for $230 and the most expensive I saw was $265 at bbts. You can get it shipped from japan for less than what bbts is charging.  I see these comments all over tfw....”I'm not paying $275-$300 for mp-52”. Why would you? No one is charging that much.  

    it seems like every time a new MP is announced, the detractors like to add a non existent $40-$70+ to its pre order price simply to complain that the price is too high.  With Mp-44, so many people were saying “i refuse to pay $500 for a toy”. Again, why would you when no one was charging $500 for it.  Its like they look for the most expensive pre order price simply to complain...while completely ignoring all the much cheaper options. 

  5. I love the current MP aesthetic. Having super posable, transforming toys that look like the original show is a dream come true. 

    What is surprising to me is every time Takara announces a new show accurate MP, the anti-show accurate crowd act shocked that Takara is doing it.  Every release since Inferno its been “nope. Looks too much like the show...why is Takara doing this when I don't like it”.  Which is fine. They don’t have to like it, but don’t be shocked when each one is clearly following a pattern and looks like the show. 

    Then the next one is shown and they are angry again. “Why is Takara doing this. I can’t believe they are still going for toon accuracy”.  Clearly Takara has a plan. They have been doing it like this for several years. 

    Then the next one is shown and the detractors are still shocked it looks the way it does. 

  6. Still available at NY for a $60 mark up at 42,000.  


    Considering it really is only $60ish more than amiami was charging, their price isn't too bad. Its only going to go up. Its probably roughly the same as what bbts will charge.
