    w00t! 20th Prime, come to papa!
    I;ve wanted this figure for ages, but wasnt going to pay £120+ for it.
    Also, glad to hear that the cybertron figures are coming, don't really care about the re-issues, the only one i want is soundwave, and thats a Takara one.

    It might be time to finally pick up a 20th Prime to keep minty and fresh and delicious.

    Well I'm just glad they're coming at all. About bloody time - most of my reissues have been Japanese (apart from Skids). Now I can save a bit of cash and buy local :)

    I can't help but notice, it's not the 20th anniversary anymore, infact, that was two or three years ago

    For those of you who are planning to get 20th Prime at TRU UK.I'd suggest you stay on the ball... could be wrong, but i suspect they may not get that many in to start with.

    And you guys aren't even getting raped on prices! Well, no worse than we did anyway, except possibly Thundercracker.
