Just wait for Cyberpath. He does wicked scene recreations better (as I'm not transforming my Megs). I'm looking at you buddy! :lol:
Thanks! It'll probably be a while.

I'm surprised that coin isn't painted orange.

Got my in stock notification from A-E! Debating if I should request the orange plug. I think a few of you mentioned it's a low risk to forgo the plug in the US?

A-E just emailed me with regards to the plug:

"It will be up to the customer. We can offer this service for free, but we will have to open the product (the plug will not be glued). However, we believe there should be no problem shipping it untouched.

Best regards"

Are you going with plug?

That's because they counted crying as part of the process.

A lot of retailers are gluing them in.

Anyway, if you live in the US, buy a product call Simple Green.

Yikes! I'd be VERY careful about that if I were you, I'm pretty sure the barrel is painted and this will remove paint as you know. Plus you don't want to take a chance in getting the metal parts wet as they'll rust.

In my experience the glue is applied to just the inside of the barrel so breaking the cap free shouldn't effect the appearance of the barrel unless you look inside.

And as a quick aside: Nothing pisses off some news writers more than the question of if something was written as the result of a "slow news day", even if they weren't the one doing the writing.

I live in WA
I am lucky to have a MP5 and G1 Movie Issue (Grey not Silver) that came with Dark of the Moon Megatron.
Both sold at the same store, no problems with Custom.
I did get a Original G1 Megatron. It came through Customs.
First off I didn't know about the Licensing Issue. They were going to destroy it unless I got the proper paper work.
But then they decided that it was a Toy and not a Replica.
I am sure that if you look around at small shops, you can find toy guns that could be mistaken for the real thing.
Hell, I even have a torch/lighter made from metal that is in the shape of a gun, small of course. Sold at my local Petrol Station.
If the the Government is targeting Megs for looking like a real gun, then accuse them of being Bias towards this toy.

Better to be safe than sorry, so yes.

FYI, Australian collectors going through HLJ may have ... wait for it ... dodged a bullet (HA!) as it's been reported on the TCCA Facebook group that HLJ have reversed their decision on adding a plug for Australian customers.

Megatron who?

Short version:

G1 Megs (quantum surge G1 Megs) > G1 Galvatron (purple guy) > Super > Ultra Megs > Action Master Megs > G2 Megs (purple and green) > He gets defeated by Laser Prime and is banished.

So where does the G1 Megatron body who gets his azz wiped by Galvatron II fit in? Same with Legends Megatron who seems to be the same Megs. Could he be before or after that incident with the Danny Elderoids?

The answer to both questions is this: The first one comes after the G-2 manga following the aforementioned banishment. And then Legends Megatron comes even after that.

I've gotten an in-stock notice from HLJ for my MP-36. Won't be shipping him until the end of April though.

True if one isn't careful in applying the product, and instead dumps the entire barrel into the solution. I am thinking of removing the barrel from the toy (if that is possible) and putting a few drops inside the barrel (if the other side has an opening) and leave it overnight. If the otherside of the barrel doesn't have an opening and is on an unremoveable hinge, I think breaking the cap free (if it is flexible and hollow like the same type HLJ used on mp5) would be ideal and then carefully applying a cotton swab of Simple green on the glue residue and not touch it for a day.

You do bring up a good point in bringing careful and I recommend anyone not to rush out and get simple green to try on MP Megatron unless you are familiar with the product and understand the consequences that it may damage the paint of your Megatron figure. Simple Green is not toxic.

I remember showing using a drill in trying to remove the reissue or mp5 Megatron's solid orange cap from BBTS and ruined the barrel pretty badly even though it was all internal. That said, I hope HLJ doesn't use such a strong glue or use a cap made out of hard solid plastic.

Well, paid for Megatron. It's kinda sad when the 2-7 day shipping option is only 250 JPY more than the 2-5 week shipping.

DHL it is! Thanks to some store points he'll cost me around US$185 total which is, like, $20 less than retail and I'm fine with that.

I haven't watched the transformation video, I don't want any spoilers. :)

We have an update on the orange cap issue for imported retailers for Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece Megatron - as it appears that HLJ will be revisiting their stance on Australia, where no cap will be added.

The full story: due to legal requirements, the US and initially it seemed Oz too, needed to have retailers include with the item the safety cap; that means opening the box and attaching the cap to the barrel, with glue or other means. Retailers decided to do this to be covered and the ensure customers would receive the item in case of inspection. After review and feedback from Australian customers, however, HLJ has decided not to open packaging and not to attach the cap! This is still the case, though, for US customers. See a screenshot of the discussion below.
