    Amazon's really bangin' out the exclusives lately. Kudos to them and Hasbro for making these previous import only, high cost exclusives available. I'm betting on more info and more announcements at SDCC.

    Well dang, that would've saved me about $75. Maybe I'll get a second one to take out of the box...it really is an awesome-looking toy.

    I wanted this guy but still haven't pulled the trigger on him. Amazon.com to the rescue again!

    It seems like Amazon and Hasbro are taking the same kind of approach as with TFCC and E-Hobby to get items, except cheaper, better customer service and no massive CC fraud

    Do we know when this pre-order is for? I don't see it on the page or am blinded by the awesome paint job.

    I was tempted to get this guy when he came out overseas, but the pricetag was just a little too much for a repaint of a now $22 toy. I'm tempted to get him now at $99. That's a pretty good looking paint job.

    It seems that all of the Eastern seaboard's shelfwarmers are making their way here :lol 
    Paint job isn't half bad though.

    Talk about feeding the market. And some of you actually wonder why they have higher priced exclusives now?

    Cool, but I have no interest in the Ultimate Prime or any repaint. It does look cool though.

    I just checked eBay: $169.99 - $219.99. Then here comes Amazon with $99/shipped. Fan'friggin'tastic. I'd love to see the looks on those sellers' faces.

    Not really an "Amazon exclusive" is it, seeing it was released in Asia first, but whatever.

    Whether the OP meant a previous exclusive or not, the Amazon page lists nothing about it being an exclusive. But if it did, it would be a Hasbro US release sold exclusively through Amazon.

    Amazon? Not sure. Released somewhere? Bet on it.
