Wouldn't it be a late present? It comes out in January and you won't have to pay for it until then.

Technically, it would be late, Emerje! But I'd be pre-ordering from HLJ, ASAP, and assume the money's as good as spent. ;)

He's truly a Masterpiece. I am still very curious as to how the OS offering from WeiJiang will compare...

Personally I still need an Ultra Magnus, but they turn up on Mandarake for under ¥17,200 shipped EMS all the time. As far as I'm concerned a new release just means more used options later.

I definitely prefer used prices, not to mention I never buy a bot to keep it MISB.

On my recent hunt for Pretenders, the thought never crossed my mind to buy one brand new -- but with Masterpieces, I do treat them a lot more delicately than ant CHUG or 3P figure....and my kids may never know of them until they're at least 8. ;p

I don't own many MPs -- just the recent Soundwave Asia re-release and Bluestreak (from TRU).

Dark Scorponok, CW Sky Lynx, Takara Legends Arcee, CW Wreckgar, and a re-release of G1 Megatron remain MISB, but for no other reason than I haven't been compelled to rip 'em open to make memes yet.

Plus theres the fact that a used MP Megatron goes for more than these preorders. So in this case, buying new was the way to go for me.

In your experience is the 2nd half stuff from Mandarake good quality, or is it pretty random? I assume they inspect it and make sure you're not getting a broken figure?

Like anyone else, I rather pay less than more. But A-E has UM for ¥12,600. After shipping, I imagine it's pretty close to the price you're quoting. Even if it's a little more, I'll probably pay it for the peace of mind of getting a MISB figure.

I've been buying from Mandarake for a couple of years now, and no complaints whatsoever. It was mostly Sentai and figuarts that i bought from them but also the occasional Transformer. Always in excellent condition and if anything, they tend to describe the items on their website as being in worse condition than they are. A few small scuffs on the corner of a box will be rated as Damaged Box.

Yeah, Mandarake will only sell something that's broken or missing parts in the store if it can still be sold as vintage to a collector, like a boxed G1 figure missing a gun or something as long as the box is still in decent shape.

MP Ultra Magnus starts at ¥7,500 for a figure missing the instructions but otherwise complete. Plus ¥5,200 to ship EMS and you're paying ¥12,700 ($115) used, hard to beat that. My only concern would be that UM does have a known issue with the knee joints so you're taking a risk on a used one breaking, but there are a lot of tutorials around on fixing the joint or at least inspecting them and preventing breakage.

Does anyone know if there is a time limit on how long Anime Export will hold an item for you before you're forced to ship? I have MP Sideswipe+ preordered with them and that has an estimated November release. I'm probably going to preorder Ultra Magnus, which will be 3 months after that. Will they hold it that long?

Yes they will. They will hold your item for a long time since you already paid for it.
