    Everyone is torn on this... Just curious as to what people think.

    I think we won't get this version of Breakdown (or Jet Vehicon). Both Robotkingdom and one of the magazines have called them "Japan only molds". And if we don't see or hear something at SDCC, I have a feeling we won't at all.

    Having said that, I hope I'm wrong... I have AM BD and a JV on order, I want three more Hasbro JV's...

    To think there won't be is idiotic.

    I was just looking at some other sites, and the trend among those posters/translators is that the "Japan only" text is better translated as "Japan original"... It just means Japan's getting them first for a change.

    So why would those be the only two to get that label "Japan only"?

    None of Japanese magazines said Breakdown is Japan ONLY (Japan Original, yes.)
    I still think Breakdown mould will get Hasbro release, though could it be as Silas? (I'm not following the show much, sorry)

    I can't say for sure for Jet Vehicon as I haven't been following the news. I wouldn't be surprised if he is Japan only.

    Assuming Prime continues for another year (all indications are yes), I'm confident we'll get Breakdown.

    Heck, we're getting Skyquake, whose only had TWO episodes to his name.

    The question will be whether it is the same mold Takara is using, and nobody can answer that.

    Before DOTM, I would have said there's at least a 90% chance given the small number of molds that have never seen a US release since 2000. With the current economy it's going to depend a lot more on how much stores are ordering not to mention how well they're selling.

    I hope not. That thing's super ugly, just like the rest of the Really Inormous Disappointment line. He'll probably end up scout-sized, too, thanks to hasblo's money-grubbing and downsizing.

    NB4 annoying whining poster whines about this post and rants on and on about the perfection of Prime.

    Breakdown, most likely. Maybe not the Jet Vehicon though.

    I think their waiting due to story points. Jet vehicon is most likely a no or an exclusive to a retail.
