    I hope they fixed all of the quality control issues on that Alternity Seeker mold.

    MPM Starscream is really, really tempting. Just can't personally justify the price.

    Seaspray looks a hundred times better with the G1-inspired colors IMO.

    Hmm... hadn't caught it till you mentioned it. The earlier solicits had it as Groundshaker.

    It would seem TakaraTomy changed the name to match Hasbro (with the exception of the "Autobot" prefix). The katakana has also been changed from グランドシェイカー Groundshaker to オートボット ブリーチャーAutobot Breacher.

    Fortunately, the only things I don't really like are the keitai straps. So, the odds are pretty good I'll get at least some of the stuff I want out of the lottery.

    You'll have more luck that I will. :( 

    Regardless of the eventual insane price it'll go for, care to help a fellow Animated fan out? Now that I know we're only a Sunstorm away from finally getting all the Animated male clones in something other than clear Legends, I'm rather tempted.

    Hmmm EZ Twins in ICT colors... interesting... but they don't combine, so what's the point? I might still get EZ Collection Volume 5 though, the Scorponok repaint is also interesting...

    That is so bogus making Ramjet super unobtainable is it a hyper limited prize item or just a store exclusive ?

    As that would make a difference in how many they make it might be a 3 dozen or it might be 100 or 500, or 3000 or more.

    It would be nice to have the set though - it would have also been nice to have all the others more easily obtainable too in Japanese form or by mixing Japanese and Hasbro versions.

    I don't think They've made Thrust yet though.

    Thrust doesn't exist outside of the Allspark Almanac II (all the others are on the cartoon or in Dirge's case have a toy from Hasbro), so he'll probably never be made by Takara unless they use that as a basis for a future redeco.

    How does one obtain the deluxe Prime? The one with zero battle damage?
