Not sure about the US. But my suggestion is to add to your cart an item that both stores have, or a comparable figure; and compare the shipping fees before clearing it out.

For me HobbyLink is by far the better choice. Which makes me glad that Takara is usually the one with the better decos.

I'm experimenting with HLJ right now... I've never ordered anything from them before, but I recently placed on order with MP Star Saber & Exhaust and Legends Jetfire, Gelshark & Brainstorm. I just added an order with all 3 Takara fembots as well. If the shipping cost is good once these are all in stock come February/March, I'll probably do a lot more business with HLJ in the future. No more $80 MP cars!

(though I still do want the coin & amazon.jp accessories, which HLJ generally doesn't have)


i've been buying from HLJ for years. gundam models, figuarts, transformers. haven't got a single complaint about them

You know what, while this Brainstorm still isn't up to par with Fansproject's Smartrobin, the Takara version does look way better than the Hasbro version.

What bugs me the most is the lack of engineering that went into this.

The waistpieces and the weird wings look terrible IMHO.

I was hoping on a reissue of BWII Lio Convoy for a second. It's the RM version. Bummer.

All of the toys look like candy (except for Lio Convoy)!!! Transformers toys are starting to become inappropriate for little children. :-s

Deluxe-size or a tad smaller, like any new-mold Robot Masters toy :)

wondering: have they gotten rid of Lio Convoy's gun accessory, or are they just not bothering to display him with it.

I was thinking, Cool now I can replace this tragedy with a little Leo...
but, thanks to Shajaki's hot tip, I can reasonably find the real McCoy.
Thanks man!

Unfortunately, guys, all four of these things are sold out, with Primal and Lio having been sold out since long before this news was posted.

Welp, looks like it's back to watching eBay. >:oP

Is anyone else super excited for Brainstorm? I admit I'm not a fan of the wings but otherwise he looks like great fun.

Any word on a release date other than January?

Yes. Super excited.
I know there are only a couple of Headmasters in IDW, but I've been hoping we would get a bunch of them for a long time.
Think they'll do Chromedome?

I think he could look a bit more G1, don't get me wrong, I adore the IDW style, but I feel a boxier look would fit in better amongst the other figures in my collection

Nope. That's why Fun Pub was able to do Chromedome: Because Hasbro wasn't planning one.

Though, none of the characters known to be Headmasters in other fiction are Headmasters in IDW (save for Scorponok, but that was short-lived). But it did give us Sunstreaker as one for a while (until he went back to being normal).

Bummer. That Club one looks great but, he's not a headmaster. I guess the IDW situation explains why.
I feel like there are so many old gimmicks they could capitalize on. I miss the modularity of the old days.
But, that's just the old guy talking. :-(

Well, IDW did previously try it's own take on the Headmaster concept, but only utilized Scorponok and Sunstreaker. Though, in this version, becoming a Headmaster was depicted as a ghoulish, torturous, and abominable process. After all, it is basically a form of decapitation anyway. It involved a TF having its head removed, stripped apart, and then hooked up to a computer system that would allow the head to remain in psychically linked to the body whilst said body would be operated by a human in a transformable exosuit that, after an intense ordeal of surgical implantation, becomes the new head, allowing the mind of the TF and the human to become one and enabling the body to be of both persons as one.

Though, it also gave us this nightmare fuel:

More recently, however, IDW has reintroduced the concept via ancient Headmasters from Cybertron's past, but these are all newly-made characters instead of any existing ones.
