Recent MP-11s Sunstorm information may be very interesting to many British Transformers fans. Takara has pencilled in a launch date for July or August 2012. Only 1,000 of the attractive Sunstorm toys will be made available in Japan. There may be more pieces which will be obtainable in other Asian markets, but there is as [...]

MP-11 is just a remould of MP-03, so why are they asking so much more for either of them when they must have covered their costs a long time ago through all the releases MP-03's had, and when most of us have brought MP-01 in one form or another?

I knew Sunstorm was a Amazon Japan exclusive, but this is the first I've heard of it being limited to 1000.

The simple solution is to not buy the Sixshot reissue. I've got the Takara reissue from about 10 years ago and that's absolutely perfect for a reissue. However, we're dealing with an Internet geek community here and, to some of those people, the idea of not buying a particular release, especially if it's "special" in any way is unthinkable, unfortunately.
