    I don't care about the other stuff, I just want Binaltech Optimus, even if I have to pay an extra $10 for some weird lookin' pvc figure.

    It really is a stupid idea. Those PVC figures are a waste.

    It'll probably sell in Japan though, since it's also marketed towards fans of the character designer's work. Pretty cunning trick, hook them with the promise of his work and get them to stay for the cool robots.

    Japan gets Kiss Play Transformers this fall, while the US gets Diecast War Within and Neo-G1. What damn rabbit hole did I fall down? :lol 

    The UK still gets the pole up the brown star, that much hasn't changed. That's a relief.

    Well, I'm glad that the old cliche about being an anime fan and having a girlfriend being two mutually exclusive things has now become the harsh reality.

    There's definitely a generational shift between the old-school otaku and these new pillow-biting losers. I don't blame McArthur, though. I blame Japan's uneven drug laws that come down hard on the weed while ignoring the meth. Crazy Japanese kids hepped up on speed, studying like crazy through their formative teen years, instead of smoking out, listening to Van Halen, and making time with that girl from second period Math as God intended, no wonder they're screwed up.

    Well that just made a whole lot of sense to me. Seriously. I sell Anime and Manga and this type of thing is very popluar and has been since the early days of Eva. (even over here in the US)

    This may just be the face of future toys for TF's untill the movie comes out in Japan.

    Considering Takara discontinued it after only three releases, apparently not very well.
