    Are these figures plentiful in Japan? or are they like the Alts here, 2-4 of them on the shelf at a time? Can you still find Kiss Play convoy at all?

    Awesome, I'm gonna have to go down to TRU this weekend to pick this guy up.

    I went down to TRU a couple of time to find Kiss Play Convoy and I couldn't find him there. I ended up finding him at a hobby shop right outside of my base. He had 3 of him on display.

    Since someone will have missed the news and want to know from an eyewitness, can you confirm for us Red Prime? Fully plastic or Die-cast?

    "Takara Tomy did a nice job on the paint for Hot Rodimus with a nice glossy coat that makes it look like it's made out of diecast metal even though the figure is entirely made out of ABS plastic. Nice touch on the flames on both wrists too."

    Really cool repaint, if it shows up in the states I'll snap it up for sure. All the extras tempt me to import it, but the cost really turns me off.

    Hasbro said no plans for Hot rod @ Botcon, and with Alts going on hiatus it'll be at least until late 07/early 08....

    Which is the main reason I caved and pre-ordered this bad boy. Not to mention that he's not very likely to include the fishing rod/wrist blasters if Hasbro releases him.

    As a public service announcement, Captured Prey has him for the lowest price I've seen ($56.00), still has pre-orders available, has very reasonable shipping charges, and is run by an all-around great guy. :thumb

    I paid for my pre-order last night w/ HLJ. Cost me $62 shipped from Japan via SAL small packet. My last order w/ them came rather fast too so I'm hoping for the same outcome here.

    Had them available. I think you ate the last of them with your post. :wink: 

    Fixed that though, added another case to pre-orders and will be endeavoring to keep them coming!
