    I'll buy this if I can find it at a good deal. It's too similar to the previous decos to warrant a big pay out IMO.

    It took a lot of effort to scratch all the Animated Elite Guard figures of my wish list for the various reasons I came up with.

    Seeing these new pics for this particular fig is making me again question that decision. But I will resist!! I will!!!

    I don't think it's available yet. Supposed to be March, last I heard.

    And I don't think retail stores will have it. One had to purchase the Encyclopedia to be able to order the toy, and the orders closed in November.

    I've never been a big fan of Hasbro or Takara making "Elite Guard" versions of the main characters, because the show effectively demonstrates that the Earth Autobots, especially Optimus, are capable defenders and heroes, despite being considered to be failures, rejects and has-beens by the Autobot hierarchy.

    Our heroes are *better* than the Elite Guard.

    I spotted that before the news post by clicking on the "Other auctions tab" from that seller of DOTM Skids and Starscream as I was hopping they might add some pics of the robot mode on Starscream so I've been keeping an eye on their auctions.

    I still have to wonder though with the book being so expensive it might be cheaper to just buy the toy after it ships out as books are heavy to post international anyway/ and we might have seen a lot of the possible content already I'd guess.

    I suspect he'd look nifty with the wing backpack on though.
