    Yea, that's the sort of thing that really makes me wonder why we haven't seen any sign of it in America.

    But then again, I don't think MP Thundercracker has been sighted anywhere other than the US, so there's that...

    Um. China to other Asian countries is a shorter ride than China to North America. Doesn't surprise me at all that Hasbro Asia gets shipments first.

    Indeed. I would expect to see optimus fairly soon though since he has been out in the asian market for a while and US release was planned for october but its common to see stuff earlier than planned.

    Yeah, I always expect toys to hit stores about a month to a month and a half before the announced estimated release date.

    It's why I find NYCC and Toy Fair hilarious. "These are our upcoming products..." No, I bought these at Target 2 weeks ago.
