    Just want to know if these two will be making it over here under the Generations/RTS line. For some reason I feel compelled to own these but they're just so expensive for deluxe sized figures - especially megs @ $55.

    ok. I got him for $35 SGD, which is a good deal but...

    HELL NO. These figures are released under Generations already as Cybertronian Optimus Prime and Cybertronian Megatron. No release will be made witht he Henkei paint apps. That's why they're made in Japan, they're their painted versions.

    If you're talking about the Voyager Megatron and the Deluxe Prime, 2 Pack Prime was released in Classics and also as the Special Edition Prime. Megatron was released in Classics and Henkei. No other releases available.

    You'll never likely to see that Voyager Megatron again unless he's mostly orange. Definitely will never see it in those colors.

    I don't think that Optimus is likely either as it's been released twice in the US and they have better Optimus figures they can use now.

    Yeah those are the ones I was talking about. Sorry for the misunderstanding!

    Oh and if that megatron is voyager, then is it the same as the Henkei release? Or are there some small differences somewhere?

    It's similar to the Henkei, but has different paint apps and no chrome.

    So I take it that the Optimus isn't worth getting? Apart from my Henkei Prime, I have nothing that resembles the G1 prime and was hoping that this figure would solve that. But if he really isn't that good, then I guess I'll just bite the bullet and grab the Encore G1 Prime.

    if you have a biglots in your area, check out there. They have a 2 pack "The Ultimate Battle" which comes with That prime in regular colors, no chrome, and a G2 Megatron.

    Btw, I saw the thing in person (United Prime). If you're into chrome, sure, go for it, but if not, this thing looks like a shiny turd.

    Isn't HobbyLinkJapan selling Megatron for about $35. Has anyone ever shopped there before? Maybe they can confirm whether the currency conversion is accurate or not. Right now, I am thinking about getting the Prime and Megatron you speak because I need both leaders of their respective sides. I think I am blowing too much money on TF toys. Is that the curse of a TF collector?
