    Am I the only one freakin frustrated at the lack of distribution to the US?
    Asians and Canadians have had these readily available at discounted prices
    for over a month now. What gives? First it was a release date of Oct. 1 then Nov. 1
    then finally Dec 1. We haven't even got the damn Entertainment Pack.
    March couldn't come soon enough.

    You might want to take a look at how much more Transformers cost in Asia and Canada than they do in the U.S.

    I'm pretty sure it was said that we should be expecting the voyagers sometime this month?

    I heard they are never EVER coming to America.

    I also heard a rumor that Hasbro will stop making TFs altogether...

    and by "heard" I mean "made up right now".

    :D

    I don't know what you're talking about having discounted prices in Asia, I just spent $45 for a takara bulkhead and $35 for prime deluxes here in Japan.

    I am also eagerly awaiting the release of the voyagers here in the states. They should be out this month with the after christmas restock. But I am tempted to get the Takara Optimus, that thing is sexy

    Agreed. Ive been around, and have buddys that travel...I have personally experienced how much stuff is over seas, compared to US prices.

    People that think that just dont know. Dont scold them too much. I think alot of peeps that dont know just think that because it "comes from somewhere overthere" it must be dirt cheap...

    its actually the opposite.

    I HIGHLY doubt that people overseas enjoy the FREE clearances and hefty couponing that the US enjoys as well.

    Most online stores based in the USA have an expected arrival date of January for the Prime Voyagers, although they're charging sixty bucks for the pair of Bulkhead and Optimus. It's better than eBay, but I'll just wait until they're available in America through TRU.com or HTS, unless they never seem to get them in.

    Something to keep in mind here is they might be shipped out but the stores*ex Walmart* possibly have'nt stocked them yet because they're trying to sell some of they're remaining stock of the movie figures.

    I'm wondering when deluxes will come out here in the US, because I sure haven't seen anything of TF Prime at all yet.

    But Voyagers are usually $30 here. Plus 5% + 9.5% (taxes).

    It really sucks that the Prime figures are only being carried by TRU right now because they suck at re-stocking anything.The two TRU stores near me had the Prime figures in stock once,and now both of the stores don't even have a spot on the shelf for them.

    They already are out, I have several of them.

    It all depends on whether or not the local stores stock them or if they keep putting out movie toys.

    I thought they were only at TRU for the moment. That's where I got Arcee, Starscream, and BB.
