    I was in South Korea around 2 weeks ago and saw these at a TRU outlet:

    Tucker Toys DOTM Phlat Balls:

    DOTM Voyager Megatron and Optimus Prime Boxed Set, with free mug, not sure if it's the thermal kind like the one released in the Philppines during the DOTM toy launch:

    The DOTM Deluxes there come in bot mode packaging:

    Deluxe Mudflap seems to be shelfwarming there, since it is the most plentiful:

    Man, I wish they would always come packaged in robot mode. That way, you could easily check for missing, damaged, or incorrect parts and also check the figure's paint apps.

    Knowing this franchise, I was expecting something totally different.
    Thank Jambi I was wrong.

    Man, not digging the robot mode packaging. I hope that doesn't become prominent, I like the feeling of opening a TF for the first time and unfolding its vehicle/animal mode to reveal the cool robot form for the first time.

    I'm with him. For me, I don't get the thrill of converting from Robot to Vehicle for the first time, but the other way 'round is absolutely delightful. :)

    Please note that the sightings are from Korea, not from the Philippines as stated on the front page. :)

    BNY888 is from the philippines but stated he was in korea in regards to that sighting.

    and the writing is definitely korean.

    hahaha can you imagine 24900 php for my brothers from homeland? that's almost 600$ cad for a deluxe class. LOL so a deluxe class is around 23$ dollars in korea. amazing.

    Interesting. Japan packages its Transformers like the rest of the US--rather, Japan just slaps a sticker over the UPC code, giving the toy a new UPC plus Takara Tomy's info.

    We have TRUs in the Philippines. FYI. We have MP Rodimus gathering dust and waiting to be put on SALE. Sad but true. While everyone was waiting for this low cost toy it proved to be less than true MP Rodimus. This should have been labeled MP Hotrod.
