Well - I'm getting him unmodded from hlj - shipped to Europe.

Maybe people should try to get him shipped to friends/family in Canada and then just bring him in over the border as a regular robot toy with a box?

Well from what I understand, the caps are gonna be placed in the end of the barrel, and if forced, will be removable. I photo-shopped what it might look like, and I found some regulation caps for toy guns produced here in the US.

MP-07 or 8 would be more likely i think.

We'll be lucky if we can just get MP-05 without incident, forget a second Megatron for now. Hopefully they will release just the silencer and stock by themselves like they did with Prime's Trailer for those that bought MP-01.

A silencer would bring up a good question though. If Megatron gets a capped barrel, will the scilencer be able to be attached?

I was actually thinking the same thing. I didnt point this out due to it not being designed for the U.S. market to begin with. I'm not sure takara would really hesitate coming out with a "perfect" kit down the line simply because the U.S. has issues surpassing its own laws.

Takara has already released 3 figures based on the Prime Mold MP-01, MP-02 (Magnus repaint), and MP-04. I wouldn't put it past them to release another Megatron again down the line. They love reusing those molds. If they were to release a second Megatron, I actually hope it is the Black with Brown wooden handle, scilencer, and stock version. That is the only thing that would peak my interest in wanting to have to endure this whole mess again.

While I am thinking about it, Takara ought to release Ultra Magnus' trailer that would convert into his armour. I'd consider MP-02 in that case as would many other people.
