    I very much want to say we already knew this - it's on our resource page at any rate. That said, I can't find where it was originally confirmed :lol !

    March release was already stated in the book the figure was exclusive to, though the exact date they'll start shipping is new.

    I won't get mine until April though, gotta wait for other goodies to make a nice big PoL :D

    Since Animated Optimus is one of the few with no appreciable secondary market value perhaps this will be cheap ont he secondary market like the skids repaints are.

    I will definitely be getting this. How can I have every single other Animated figure and leave this guy out? :D

    I think mine has been delayed - which is obviously no big deal considering the chaos going on in Japan right now.

    ^Yup, same here..and totally understand the reaosn for the delay in shipment, but of course.

    ^I didnt take the first pre-order way back last year..so i may have paid slghtly over the odds for it..$90 for the toy and $ 25 for shipping to where Im at. :p

    I bought mine on yahoojapan for 3002yen, it's odd that mine didn't get held up as it shipped the day after the quake.

    Got offered for decent low (Seller told me that he was even willing to let go at cost) but I ain't biting for now.

    Somehow, it reminded me too much of TFA Black Convoy getting a few colorful decos... :redface2:
