    Judging by the price, that's Activators Dirge. And, we are getting Arcee here in the US, so it makes sense they would get her too.

    Glad that list has nothing that is missing from the US, such as the Constructicons. I'd be a bit upset if I had to go and import Animated figs to get them all! grrrrr

    Cool. Hope they like it. And I hope to God there's no accidents in translation, like what happened with BW Air Razor and Tigatron. I still find that one very embarassing.

    Cool! Maybe we'll get some japanese repaints like Ramjet or Slipstream. *wishful thinking*

    I hope our Japanese friends enjoy the show, and keep it alive! Maybe demand will be strong enough to create a sequel series ala Beast Machines.

    Yes, Airazor was made into a boy to please the demographics, and it resulted in awkward gay moments.

    It friggin' had to be. No way they would have made Air Razor male if they'd known about her and Tigatron later in the show.

    Yeah, me too. I'd like Takara flesh their Animated line with stuff Hasbro never got a chance or wanted to do. Like for example, shrink the Starscream mold to deluxe size, give it a new head, and voila, Animated Slipstream.

    Well, gay by our standards. For them it was just a slightly more awkward than usual Kohai-Senpai relationship.

    But still, good. At least they don't have to wait years to get this. I wonder how they'll receive the style...

    Oh, I wonder if maybe we'll end up getting a more G1 color scheme on Starscream. That alone would make me happy.

    most fans seemed to love it from what I saw on japanese message/image boards.

    Sari pretty much guarantees success of the show in japan, anyways.

    I'd be happy with a more animated-accurate color scheme on animated starscream.

    I really hope they don't. I'm all but a currently released figure and the upcoming figures away from being happy with a (in my mind) complete Animated collection, I don't want stuff to buy at import prices.

    Glad they're getting it though.

    Well. It appears I need to get this Lugnut to maintain completionism for completionism's sake.

    I hope so too. I'm really hoping for the rest of the Seekers from the Voyager mold and a deluxe Cliffjumper; I don't care if it's import prices. I want them and I'll pay them if Hasbro won't release them. Hell I'll take the rest of the Seekers in Activators form even. It's probably wishful thinking, but here's hoping.
