    Can't wait to spend $35+shipping for Beast Hunters Bumblebee. Totally worth it.

    Shockwave? pfft, who cares? It's all about Bumblebee.

    I don't think there's supposed to be a "G01 - G10". There might either be an error in the codes for these figures and the "G1" is actually GI or GL, or for whatever reason these figures are going to be coded as G1, which would be weird. Most if not all Takara Transformers lines start with Prime as the first figure, and with Bumblebee following the three Voyagers, the other Deluxes probably follow after him.

    I think the most interesting bit of this news, to be honest, is that it means Beast Hunters is gonna air straight after S2 finishes in Japan.

    Which makes me suspect that whether or not we're getting any seasons after Season 3 is up in the air... BH always struck me as a season that would either get combined with the first 52 episodes in Japan or with a future set of episodes, given we aren't getting full seasons at this point.

    I kinda hope the sticker nonsense continues, so that I won't feel any need to spend extra money importing.
