    Just got this in the mail from a Singapore hobby shop called Roborobo. They were the supplier for the toy sale during Cybertroncon.

    It has to be weaponizer, does this mean he is not coming in a Hasbro version?

    No, Hasbro is remembering that they can only charge half of what Takara does at a time when retailers continue to muscle them on cost, and shareholders want more revenue.

    Until something in that cycle breaks, you're going to keep seeing Japan only toys in main lines.

    No big loss. Have you seen Weaponizer Bee? A metallic gold painted turd is still a turd.

    Dear Hasbro,
    Please create a toy other than FRIGGIN Bumblebee.

    I am so over the character. I'm to the point that, I'm so sick of seeing him in the stores, that I won't even buy one to do a custom out of.

    Jesus H. fucking Christ in a chicken basket, it's gotten to the point where hearing ANY toy announcement at all results in people saying, "BAAWWW Takara exclusive?! Hasblow has abandoned us!". Dude-- read the description. This is obviously Weaponiser Bumblebee with an Arms Micron tacked on. We've already seen that we're getting this one, minus the latter part.

    Doesn't sound the same to me. If Gold coat some how means crappy yellow plastic I would agree with you two. This one sounds like the shiny metallic Costco Battle Ops Bee released not too long ago.

    Maybe the gattling gun could also be interchangable for the inevitable Skyquake repaint of Dreadwing.

    Then put a Japanese sticker on them and sell them to Westerners.
