    It's pretty much confirmed for US release. The packaging screams America.

    Holding out hopes for a US Target release. Not spending import fees on something I have all the moulds for.

    I'm waiting until next month when I have more money, cause I can't preorder on that one site, as I don't have a credit card, I need to pay via paypal. Then I buy it online. I prefer online, because I'm no US resident ;)

    I have henkei versions of galvatron and cyclonus already (which are better than these molds). I would have bought the set just for rodimus, but now that its pretty likely to be in the USA, I'll just wait. If I'm wrong, i can always buy on ebay later.

    1. Wait to see if I win one of the 30 sets that are up for prizes at Auto Assembly next week.

    2. If none are won by myself or my girlfriend, purchase immediately upon return home from Kapow.

    3. Own set.

    You have to figure the target release would probably cost $24.99, unless you're desperate, it seems foolish to pay 2x the price now...especially with so many other really cool things coming out soon.

    I had mine on preorder and it was processed today, even though I would have preferred to pay less. No big deal; there's always the possibility of it not getting released in the US.

    I'll be waiting...until the set hits 50% off clearance price, as pretty much every Target exclusive makes it at least that far before disappearing.

    My target had an absolute load of those 2 separate times, not sure if they ever went to clearance, but it was never hard to get.

    Not yet. I am hoping that will be released. I have at least 6 Targets within short driving distance.

    Please tell me where you got this info? Hasbro Asia releases their products identical to US packaging. And there are quite a few releases that Hasbro Asia had that didn't see the light of day in US retailers.

    ^No solid confirmation yet, just a couple of sources (one I beleive with the Auto Assembly, and another source that is generally pretty good) stating that they are hearing that it may be. At this point, it is enough to keep me waiting, but there has been nothing concrete.

    Had it on preorder, but with Predaking, Seacons, Crystal Rod, Bruticus upgrade, Hard Head upgrade, etc, etc, on preorder, I had to make some cuts. Really hoping to see it here, cause a friend is picking up a couple sets and does not want Cyclonus, so I am gonna buy his rather than having to buy multiple complete sets.
