    Who cares? You can IMPORT it from Japan! With a special sticker on the packaging that proves you threw loads of money out of the window to IMPORT IT FROM JAPAN! :D

    I absolutely refuse to pay an extra $50 for the EXACT SAME THING... that is, unless there is a pretty pretty picture on the back of the box.

    I may be wrong, but wasnt the Unicron head gonna be a US exclusive, as in not available elsewhere without having to import it yourself?

    More precisely, it's a Japanese import of the US release.

    :peoples: 

    How much is that in $US? Comparable to the first Takara release? I never got the Takara version despite preferring the packaging. If this comes in that same box, but with a sticker or something about the head, for about the same, I'll go for it.

    I live in Japan near Osaka, and I have not been able to find a single Takara Primus anywhere. The eHobby option may be the only way collectors here can get a Primus. I assume not many toy shops ordered Primus after watching Galaxy Force toys, previous Unicrons, and Omega Supremes sit on the shelves.
