    Hello all,

    *Mods, wasn't sure if this should go in toys or news/rumors, feel free to move


    These toys were spotted on Thursday afternoon, March 19th in Osaka. A shop in DenDen Town (Nipponbashi). If you're in the Kansai area, looks like these Revenge of the Fallen figures are available to you.

    On the shelf four smaller (Legends-class?) figures were available: Dead End, Dirt Boss, Roll Bar and Knock Out. They were priced at 2200Yen each, roughly 20USD.

    Next to them (and again, sorry for the blurrrrr) were (Deluxe class??) Ironhide and Optimus Prime. Optimus was going for 8800Yen (almost ninety USD, yikes!) and Ironhide was going a little less, for 6600Yen, maybe.
    Sorry for the blurry snap. Whenever I take photos around Japan, people are always telling me to stop. Which is ironic, since the stereotype of a Japanese tourist is always one armed with a camera! Anyway, I've grown accustomed to simply pulling out the camera, disarming the flash, snapping a few and going away quietly.

    I'll be back there this weekend to check again. My contact there tells me the Ganbo exclusives should be there at the end of the month, so I go in every week to take a look. Having said that... I'm saving my cash for Thurst and Dirge, so I didn't pick up any REVENGE today!! But I didn't see him so I couldn't ask him about the Revenge figures. So just those six were on display.

    And yes, that M.Falcon is gigantic.

    Those are obviously imports, on account of the fact that there's an animated Waspinator next to them.

    Eh. Those are just imported from China, not official releases. Prices for domestic retail TF stuff in Japan aren't THAT high.

    Which I would have bought, if it weren't $45 bucks. :( 
    Henkei figures are a steal, though :)

    Perhaps because of the early released figures over sea's hasbro will release domestically (usa) sooner than the end of may. Hey, I can hope...

    Why would Ironhide and Prime be priced differently if it was true mass release?

    If these were sold in Japan, then pretty soon they'll be here in Sri Lanka.

    The two voyagers appear strange. I know that the first one is definitly Ironhide but the second looks like Starscream but I could swear that that's prime on his box

    wow, What was the price tag on the animated Waspinator , 4500 yens ? ? wow, that is US$45~ And the scout class for 2200 yens !! that is what usually the deluxe class Transformers would be priced. This shop basically overprices everything BECAUSE they have them before everyone else...

    Anyway Thanks for the sharing !! I wouldn't be excited seeing these overpriced shops... 8800 yens for a same mold of Voyager Optimus Prime is just ridiculous.
