The pre-order is now live for the Takara Legends LG EX 2 pack of Repugnus and Grotusque. It is on Takaratomymall.jp, where this Takara release is exclusively sold. It could be that Hasbro Asia will also release it and thus it will be found on other online shops, but the only option right now is Takaratomymall and as with all exclusives, this is where the item will be at its lowest price (since this is the direct retailer). The price is ¥7,560 including taxes.

While this item can only be shipped to Japanese addresses, anyone can create an account on Takaratomymall and the item could be shipped to a forwarding service in Japan that can then forward it to you, like Tenso. Shipping within Japan would be free but taxes are unavoidable.

The preorder will be closed September 10th 2018. Once again, these are the exact same as the Hasbro releases, with no extra Prime or Titan Master.

For those wondering how forwarding shipping is and what charges could be involved, here is a post from fellow Seibertronian Emerge, explaining how he handled it in the past with a Japanese forwarding service. This is of course just an option, as more opportunities to obtain these items are bound to happen (at a mark up of course).

Depending on where you go the fee isn't that bad since they're just forwarding a package rather than buying it for you like a proxy service. My e-Hobby Magna Convoy shipped through Tenso cost a grand total of 2,300 JPY to ship after a 570 JPY handling fee via registered air mail. My total was less than if I had bought it from HLJ and much lower figure and shipping combined than if I had bought it from a domestic seller (and I had it less than a week after release).

For someone who still doesn't have either figure yet, but who still kinda wants the Special Edition Prime Master that comes with the Hasbro Repugnus, would it be wiser to go for this set or to go for Hasbro Repugnus and try to track down a Hasbro Grotusque?

The Hb Grotosque is readily available at Amazon. I got mine for $ 56.00 +++

The Headmaster for Grotosque (Scorponok) and Repugnus (Solus) is a great incentive. Unless Takara will be releasing them in a separate set like they did for the other Legends Hms. :???:

Spellcheck strikes again! :lol:

Which route you choose depends on what you want out of the set. If you only want the Deluxe figures then it'll be cheaper to import, but if you also want the bonus Masters you're going to have to buy on the aftermarket for substantially more.

Plus with this being a Legends release there's a strong possibility of these turning up on domestic stores like Grand Maximus and Greatshot did. That could be the most reasonably priced and simplest option.
