Hmm... decisions decisions.

Ah rats... I didn't look at the link, so I thought it was any Transformers item shipped from that date, not just the 25 items they currently have listed at that link.

Hang on... they have DLX Strafe and Crosshairs back in stock. I missed out on the Hasbro versions, and these are identical, with just a Japanese sticker on the box.
I can get those.

I bought two of the cheapest items for a chance of the axe (metal ore opyimus for 750y and speed change hound 900). Both are less than ten bucks for a punt on caliber axe. If anyone wants to trade for it, I might have 2 spare

Thanks. That gives me a backup in case it's sold out at TLTC by the time I've saved up for it.

Isnít MP17+ a Takara Tomy mall exclusive? HLJ doesnít usually stock those kinds of items. Amiami and hobbysearch donít have it listed either.

I also find that HLJ is not a reliable source anymore if you don't pre-order within a day or two of their listings.
They used to have pre-orders open until their release, or they would pre-order more stock from TakaraTomy and re-open pre-orders... which is really stupid that they don't anymore, as they miss out on so much money now.

And it doesn't seem to matter what it is either, as the POTP toys and Movie toys that are identical to the Hasbro versions, are also selling out within a day or two of being listed. Every time I scroll through their Transformers listings, I rarely see anything that is still available for pre-order. It's just wall-to-wall "Order Stop" on their Transformers pre-orders.
I've had to resort to pre-ordering from other Asian sources a number of times now in the last year, that I would have otherwise bought at HLJ, which prevents me from being able to combine shipping from the one source to save money.
