"Insufficent Stock Levels?" That seems odd. Unless insufficent stock means "We didnt order it from Takara". But still, makes me wonder if this is just the Admin limiting excess product or if something else is going on?

Yeah, Takara isn't going to sell any product on credit to a store that's going to be closing, after all...

Correct, the figure is still in production and will still be available from other sellers.

But the money you wanted to use to purchase one is now stuck as credit for a dying store?
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

In Australia, yes, as that's the only TRU that is/was offering it (not even in Japan). Sounds like they do have alternate ways of getting their money back, though. It's kinda dumb that they took payment in advance, most stores, including US TRU, don't charge for pre-orders until the items come in stock.

New In Package Images of Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-34S Shadow Panther & Collector Coin

Postby Va'al » Sat Aug 25, 2018 10:07 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Via regular source of news Weibo, and its user 蓝色正午, we have some in hand images of the packaging for the Takara Tomy Transformers Beast Wars Masterpiece MP-34S Shadow Panther! You'll remember that the figure is a black redeco of MP-34 Cheetor, with the addition of a new battle / mutant mask, a communicator arm band and swappable facial expressions. The character of Shadow Panther is a homage to the old Takara Tomy Beast Wars D-7 Shadow Panther, also a repaint of the first Beast Wars cast member toy - our gallery can be seen here.

Also included below are images of the collector coin available to some markets, and its packaging. Check it all out!

I'm not entirely pleased by the alt. mode, but having MPs of non-show characters is definitely neat... even if probably they'll release only those that were repaints of major characters.

Speaking of which... no plans for a re-release of Cheetor? It's the only BW MP that is almost impossible to find at a decent (honest?) price.

I'm liking the contrasting paint apps to Cheetor. I think I'll display him with the Mutant Mask though. To differentiate him from Cheetor and because he isn't a "real" character, so he could look like anything regardless. The mask seems more fitting for a Predacon face, as only Megatron and Terrorsaur ever had standard faces.

He arrived yesterday and I am very pleased with my first BW MP redeco. The problems I had with Cheetor seem lessened by a more understated and uniform colour palette. The Mutant Mask is actually the best face sculpt he has. So shiny, it suits the change in aesthetic more so than the standard Cheetor faces. Of course the altmode isn't a panther, but in my case that comes down to nitpicking as I didn't really like the articulation proportions of Cheetor's Beast Mode either.

Very pleased with the first MP Predacon overall. Cheetor is still my least favourite MP Beast Wars figure so far.
