    Interesting, the boxes are intended to go together. I guess -that's- why they don't make Primus' bot mode red and gold to be G1y... it would be less visually distinct from Unicron's orange than the blue is.

    That's pretty freakin' awesome... love the inverted ying/yang element.

    I ordered the Unicron. Now I will feel sad if I don't get the Primus as well.

    I'm starting to come around on this guy. Might as well pick him up since I have Unicron on preorder. He does look pretty snazzy and he'll be limited to boot.

    I like what this implies for the availability of Primus. Maybe they want these out in equal numbers with the packaging theme.

    Honestly, I think this ends up being less visually interesting than the original version.

    I'm not even gonna bother asking where you can preorder these guys.

    I've noticed a lot of people in a lot of threads on this site ask questions & just get ignored.

    The pre-orders sold out pretty fast at most online retailers. Robotkingdom still seems to have their pre-order open: robotkingdom.com -- Online Toys Company

    Probably most of the places with banner ads will have a preorder soon.

    I tend to us BBTS or Robot Kingdom and have had good experiences with both (especially BBTS).

    I preordered Unicron from BBTS when they first put him up but they've sold out their preorders. I think the only place that still has preorders for Unicron is Robot Kingdom.

    And I don't think anybody has put up Primus yet but I'm getting him from BBTS once they put him up.

    There was to be one last special 2010 figure from Takara revealed soon.

    Rumors were that this would be a MP Rodimus or Hot Rod. Can we now safely assume that at least for 2010 those rumors were wrong and what we're getting is Primus?

    (Which actually makes a lot of sense since all the other figures were repaints/redecos, and a new MP figure has never come this close to release before without images of unpainted prototypes surfacing.)

    No you assume wrong. The TakaraTomy 2010 page has been updated and includes two empty boxes in addition to Primus. The 2010 campaign special is the talking stand that came with DVD Prime. All signs point to MP Rodimus Prime.

    As a matter of fact Vegas is giving it 1:3 odds that MP Rodimus will be announced soon.

    YEAH!

    I still get to be mildly excited (I'll get REALLY excited when we KNOW it's true, and have seen a toy as nice as a MP should be)!

    i still wonder if this will be limited or unlimited runs? as for primus. this metallic version looks like a henkei version. i think its much cooler looking than the original one. now i cant wait for its preorder. i still wonder if it will come to the usa as an ehobby exclusive or some kind of exclusive.

    Never got around to buying Primus. This is the perfect opportunity.
