    They look pretty much the same as their PCC counterparts except ... less transparent.

    Toys "R" Us is going to distribute MINICON 2,000. Toys "R" Us heard it with a plan to distribute the New Year to 4,000 more after having met you. I was able to confirm that 6,000 were in stock in total.

    ザラスが一番実用性高いと思いますw
    人気もありそうだし、あとのマイクロンはきっと後日でも十分手に入るのではないでしょうか...(;^^)

    Though I prefer the clear plastic used on the PCC versions, these look pretty nice too. Looks like I'll be getting mine through Bodhar.

    I think I get the gist of that one.

    Google Translate was not such a huge help this time ;

    There is an Irish Headless Horseman who sells Microns ?

    I just picked up the purple drill minicon earlier today after buying the TF Prime Voyager Optimus Prime and Bulkhead figures (gorgeous toys, the both of them!) from Kid's Land (a brand of Japanese toy store). I was expecting to get the blue minicon since I read Kid's Land was distributing the blue ones, but got the purple instead (which is just as well since I already got the same one with PCC Heavytread and thought Groundspike was trash).

    The little purple drillbot really surprised me a bit; it's actually not half bad. I suspect he'll look a lot better with a Con wielding him though, one with lots of purple tones to match like a Vehicon or Megatron. I'll have to pick up a Vehicon after New Years (since I want the Hasbro version of the Deluxe Entertainment combo pack with Optimus and the 3 kids instead of the standalone Takara Megatron). =)

    Hopefully I can pick up the orange axe minicon at the Japanese Toys'R'Us since I think he looks the best out of the three Arms-Microns.

    How is it that Transformers: Prime is a U.S. developed property and television show (and yes I realize that the studio actually doing the animation isn't, but the creative talent/writing staff/artists for the most part are, stateside), Hasbro is an American company, and yet Transformers: Prime is getting distributed more thoroughly and fully outside the U.S. first?? The U.S. gets BB, SS, and Arcee; however, Canada not only gets these but the Voyagers as well, and now Japan gets the whole First Edition Wave along with the Vehicon before we do?! WTF? :mad 

    I realize Japan/Hong Kong, etc. are closer to the manufacturing source, but it feels incredibly wrong somehow that the U.S. is getting such short shrift. It seems akin to a Japanese developed product seeing distribution here in the U.S. before it ever hits retail in its home country. Someone explain the sense of this to me, because I'm at a loss.

    Now you know how everyone outside of Europe felt about Reveal the Shield (Windcharger especially) before they started showing up at discount stores and in the 'United' toy-line.

    Stygian, you're assuming that there haven't been boxes of Prime toys in the back of stores for a month now. Retailers just care that they have the shelves stocked, especially for the holidays we just went through, so swapping out is not going to be high on their priority list when there were still tons of DotM toys out there.

    But, don't feel too bad. I've been noticing Walmarts with empty DotM sections, so I figure there is a shelf swap coming with the Prime toys pretty soon.

    My big question, is how come Hasbro never does these kinds of special toy campaigns (in the states, or anywhere else)? I know myself and many others who would stand in line for a toy release like a movie premiere if it meant a shot at something like an exclusive Minicon or those blades they released with Striker Prime.

    It all comes back to retailers: no retailer would carry it, not even Toys R Us.

    I wonder how come? They don't think there is profit in it, or are they afraid of some kind of Black Friday/90's Power Rangers riot going on?

    No action figure line will ever cause a riot at a toy store again: the real riots are over electronics.

    I wouldn't bet on it. One day "the next big thing!" will come around and people will be fighting over them like they did for Power Rangers toys and Tickle Me Elmo back in the day.

    Plus, if that's the case, then why won't Western retailers carry incentives like these to get people into stores?
