I was sitting on the fence too long with UW-01 Superion. By the time I decided I wanted it, I'd missed all the good Amazon.jp pre-order prices. So, on release day, I went to one of the biggest toy retailers in the city before they opened.

Less than a minute after the doors opened, Superion was sold out. There were enough Day 1 fans waiting outside to wipe out their stock *that* fast.

Took mine home, messed about with it for a bit, and decided to pre-order Menasor immediately, so as not to have to go through that again.

Then when Devastar showed up on Amazon.jp with that insanely low 17,000 yen asking price, I couldn't have stopped myself from ordering if I'd wanted to. I think that's cheaper than the Hasbro version's MSRP.

Out of curiosity, how is the quality of your Superion set? I noticed on mine that Skydive's right shoulder doesn't tab in correctly and will come off if I try to rotate the arm at all. I also noticed that the yellow paint by Silverbolt's elbow area is chipping off due to the tab that rubs up against it when going to combined mode.

I haven't noticed those problems yet. But I can definitely see the Silverbolt thing being an issue over time. Can't say as I had any issue with Skydive. Knock on wood.

Overall, though, the quality is about what I'd expect. It's been awhile since I bought a new TakaraTomy Transformers release (since March of 2012, to be exact), so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. But I don't have many major complaints, thus far.

Yup, it is lower than Hasbro's MSRP since 17000 yen is 137.24$ US.
Did they restock those Superions eventually?

Why did you still choose SAL Parcel and not EMS? Wasnt the difference 50 cents or something? Because SAL Parcel will make you wait for 2 weeks.

Thanks for the info. Yea, the Skydive I'm pretty sure is just a defect with my particular figure. Luckily the online retailer is helping me get that fixed.

The Silverbolt issue is definitely concerning, and I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned it. Seems like a design flaw. I can understand if it happens over time, but I've only transformed it a handful of times.

Only 3rd party sellers. The price seems to have been hovering around 14,000 yen ever since the release.

Over here, most TF figures are only released once. If they sell out, there won't be another shipment unless TakTom announces a re-release. Kinda jealous the the American style of release in many ways. Something sells out, Stateside, you just wait for another shipment. Over here, if you miss out on a new figure, you're at the mercy of the resellers.

Or, the case of "Defensor" TakTom itself... Jeez.

I have no issue with either of those for now.

Even toysrus wont restock? I am assuming he (and Menasor) would be only 11,000 yen there right? Does this mean the Transformers Section at Toysrus is usually empty?
Man, that must mean Takara products have a constantly low production run.

Toys R Us, as far as Transformers shipments are concerned, are usually one and done. I wasn't at TRU when Superion was released, but since TRU is usually closer to the MSRP than most other toy retailers, I'd imagine that they sold it for at least 12,500 yen (possibly above 13,000).

TRU's not usually empty, but they sell out of the popular stuff pretty quickly. Their shelves are often full of less-popular stuff. The Bruticus limbs hung around forever. Most of the TF:Go figures (except for Goradora) never sold out. Generations Soundwave/Blaster clogged shelves forever.

I'm not sure about the productions run size, though. Apologies.

No need for apologies, you gave us a bunch of great info. I love learning about retail experiences elsewhere. Thanks!

Just got my payment request from HLJ for Menasor, and promptly paid for the set. ~$140AU (before shipping) still works out cheaper than hunting down the Hasbro equivalent locally.

Will ship him (and Kabaya Seacons) after next weeks pay.

So with the impending arrival of Menasor, it's time Superion made his way from the lounge to the TF collection room. Unfortunately I need to move things around for him to fit ...

I'm divided at the moment. HLJ is my primary source but I don't think they're going to be carrying "Guardian" so I was lucky enough to snare him through PremiumCollectables.
Not paid either, just plugging the site sponsors. :-P
