    You plan on getting the set of Hellflame Microns like you did with the Shadow ones?

    Passed on Powerdive as I can wait for US retail (esp. at $70+ s/h), but had to go for Hot Spot. Just something about this guy really intrigues me.

    Aren't the Prime hands the same ones Fakebuster has on Shapeways?

    While I can appreciate Toyarena's update, seeing these not-really-Asia Exclusives for sale for $70 a bit of a stretch. They will hit the retail market in just a couple of months.

    However, I can understand those who have an abundance of money and/or a lack of patience to wait that long.

    It's not hate, it the obvious being pointed out. Toy Arena is one of the more expensive importers, but they do get a lot of inventory which collectors need.

    Honestly, all I care for is Hot Spot, but I'm not impulsive enough to spend $70 when I can spend $20-$25 in a few months on it.

    You know if the Hasbro Asian exclusives were never comming to TRU in the fall I could see it being justifiable to sell these figures at the price now but it's ridiculous.

    Very similar to Junkion threads that still value FE Voyagers at $70.

    Those prime hands with chromed stacks... do those stacks go on Leader Ironhide? Ijust don't see how they would work on Leader Prime.. I think I missed something along the way with that release... and those are the UFO hands and not the shapeways ones right?

    EDIT: Hold on, that Dr. Wu head is for ROFT Prime and not RPrime? isn't that the head from the Prime cartoon? why would it go on ROFT Prime?

    Hi, Thanks for informing us on the Dr. Wu Head. It is indeed for the Powerize PRIME and not ROTF!!!

    As for the Hands, those are indeed the UFO hands!

    I thought the Dr. Wu head only worked with the FE Optimus Prime. Has something changed?

    They're back up, but prices have increased.

    Back when RK had the case of four up for preorder at $120, I was all for buying early at a higher price to avoid dealing with TRU, but if these guys are going to be hovering around the $50-$60 (and higher) range before shipping at most online shops, I'll take my chances with TRU's generally spotty, sometimes awful distribution.

    On a side note, what happened to Megs and Brawn? I know they're not as high on many people's want lists, but I was looking forward to them. I'm assuming I missed the announcement that the voyagers are getting released in waves now?

    I could go for Powedive, the Hercules upgrade and Sixshot.
