MINE.

There aren't even pics yet, but if I just imagine my MP-09 in black, there it is.

MINE.

Nobody should be surprised or shocked about this one. A very predictable repaint. Pass.

With 2 more Masterpieces confirmed (Prime v2 and Rodimus reissue) I think anyone wanting Soundwave or Galvatron (like me) is in for a long wait.....

No offence, but every time I read your posts (both on Seibertron and on TFW2005), you are complaining about how hard it is to get TF's in the Netherlands. I live in the Netherlands, and the answer to this question is always going to be the same: yes, most European countries (and not just the Netherlands) get shafted with Transformers. We suffer high prices and terrible distribution, everyone knows, but complaining about it all the time isn't going to get us any more sympathy.

Furthermore, and more importantly in this case, this topic actually concerns a TAKARA / E-HOBBY exclusive: it's not a product even intended for any other market than the Japanese market. Anyone and everyone who doesn't live in Japan will have an expensive time getting this (unless they have good Japanese connections). Instead, you should be thankful that there are plenty of channels (TFSource, BBTS, Robotkingdom, Kapow, etc.) through which this TF will be available at all, even if they do charge for that service.

And at the end of the day, why would you even let yourself get 'ripped off'? No one is forcing you to buy this. It's only ever a question of finding something worth it or not (and having the cash available). By the way, I never felt MP-09 Rodimus was ever worth it, let alone a MP-09b.

yeah, they're killin' us on the wait. I'm still holding out for Masterpiece Soundwave myself. I think I have a better chance of seeing a 3rd party beat them to the punch than actually seeing it.

I find no reason to buy this at all unless you are a Rodimus collector.

A Rodimus collector.... or a collector of awesome black repaints. :-?

Yes, right now you're not shock with the black MP9 repaint. You'll be shock soon after MP11, ehehhe. Just take it as a joke for now :twisted: :twisted:

Back on topic, indeed MP9 black will look beautiful. If my favorite character from the MP line was made into black, I would've purchased in a heart beat.

A black Rodimus o.O...I wonder if it's gonna come with a beard like the SG version...But I think I'm gonna stick on buying the original Rodimus.

Interesting.

BTW. I do like the black repaints but just can't justify the cash unfortunately. If they had packaged it as Wildrider it would have been cool but wouldn't have sold as much. Shattered Glass....?

Pass. I only collect original color Rodimi. Bring on the new molds, Takara!

Intriguing. But the price will be through the roof.

Even then, I'm finding it hard to justify. Of course I still need to get hold of the normal deco first. Hopefully that second run with the rumored fixes pans out.

Easy pass for me. It is way cheaper for me to use one of the rts extras I own and just repaint my own. That or wait to see how much the KOs will be. Only time will tell. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
