    So I see Skywarp gets at least a new face. That's a plus for me. I know what a teeth grind face is, but I wonder what a high hand face looks like?

    Will wait and see about the clear window, but I might prefer the painted one. Bonecrusher's windows are painted too,a nd looks good on it.

    Based on the pricing, it looks like they're two-packs. BT-18 plus RM-03 Mirage, or BT-18 plus BT-06 Tracks.

    They're just special offer cheaper two packs - E-hobby did the same with the reissue Galvatron and GF Master Galvatron for example. But no different packaging or anything, it's just a discount offer. Probably just thought it was a good opportunity to clear out some extra stock of these two, though blue Tracks is particularily random.

    Glad to hear about Skywarp's new faces, it makes him more than just a repaint

    I'll bet Japan skips some versions/size classes like the skipped Cybertron molds in Galaxy Force.

    QFT! :thumb 

    One of the reasons Cybertron Smokescreen was disappointing was because of his clear windows, you could see all his 'bot mode giblets... :lol

    Man, I was gonna put on my "high hand face" and nod smugly at the news of Japanese Movie Bumblebee being exactly like ours.

    But now I can't. :(

    If Takara puts the movie toys in G1-esque packaging, I'll die. Especially because Hasbro's packaging for this line (& Classics) is terrible.

    If they put the reissues in real G1 boxes, I'm going to have to get a second job. LOL

    Same here! :lol  I wasn't around during G1 so I'm always trying to get any original TFs that I can.

    Don't know if I can afford this though, I put away a lot of spare cash already for the movie but with these coming out... damn you Takara/Tomy/Hasbro!! :D
