C'mon Hasbro, Give us just the Ratbat. You can even put it in a set with Wingthing, Enemy, and um, Glit. That'll work.

HLJ is the bomb for Masterpiece stuff, price wise. Got all my Datsuns that way.

Word of caution with them - if you have a QC issue, you're probably boned on an exchange because they don't stock a lot of TFs, but they are pretty good about discounting your item or letting you return it hassle free. That's how my Encore Fort Max ended up being well below $200.

Oh look, they're already on "Order Stop"

As much as I've supported HLJ over the years, and I've spent a lot of money with them, the short time their pre-orders are open really shit me off.

Actually I've had my preorders for MP-12B Lambor G2 Version and MP-13B Sound Blaster on HLJ since 9/25/2013 and they were there for a while but have long been on "order stop" until recently. Yea sucks when they sell out, but they usually have limited stock up on release date.

They also use to have a whole pre-order page and alerts about new pre-orders, but the alerts these days are just "new products" and their reduced TF stock means they tend to get buried amongst all the other anime stuff.

I know, my own fault really for not trying harder, but since their redesign a while back the site just hasn't been as TF friendly for me.

Yea the site is definitely not TF friendly. Those alerts are no help at all. It's also hard to even search what they have in stock. My current search method is to search "TAKARA" and sort by Release-Date. This should bring up everything they have on pre-order.... and a bunch of crap you don't care about...
