    People do realize that Arms Micron and Prime are seperate lines. Thus when they say Takara exclusive IT IS. But only because it is a different line.

    You really think they will make a main line figure(that interacts with Optimus) and not release him??

    Technically yes, but if they always took that approach, the word "exclusive" would be redundant. That website took some additional effort to label it as an exclusive, so unless they're completely wrong, there's something to it.

    We'll just have to wait and see.

    So then we won't be getting Breakdown and Unicron.

    I will take comfort in my belief that these will ALL make it to North America. And I will go one set further...give it enough time and all those Microns will make their way here too.

    In most cases I'd agree, but AM is different in that they come with Microns and stickers. That to me is more the exclusive part.

    Breakdown?

    Stickers and Microns are certainly exclusive to the Arms Micron line, yet only Unicron is listed as an exclusive. It's curious.

    Yes they are calling Arms Micron Breakdown an exclusive as well.

    Either way, Unicron will come.

    I think Breakdown as an exclusive (for this year, anyway) IS possible. My money's on the Silas variant getting released here first.

    Now that's a severe case of wishful thinking. :)

    You think so? I don't know either way, But, going by history; We have seen every mould here State's side (iirc) so I can't see why we won't see a bunch of these maybe as a store exclusive.

    It is a figure that Takara already made, all Hasbro needs to do is import it, very easy money for Hasbro.

    So Unicron, Breakdown, and the Jet Vehicon are all being labeled as Japan exclusives. None of the others... That worries me a bit.

    It might just be that the AM version is exclusive to that retailer, though that seems unlikely.
    For all we know, those interactions could be dependent on the AM-exclusive pegs, making the armor gimmick useless on the US versions.
    It never said that. At all. Anywhere on the page.
    If Hasbro was smart enough for that, don't you think we would have seen some kind of release of Music Label Soundwave here?
    Nope. Just Unicron.

    I wouldn't worry to much. Do you really think Hasbro is not going to release toys made from their flagship show?

    Is it? DOTM was a bigger toyline than Prime, I'd say, due to the movie.

    Heck - Canada's still on Wave 1 of the Voyagers and Deluxes.

    I'm afraid so. Due to not having the Minicon ports and the whole assembly nature of the Microns, I don't see it happening. Plus there are a lot of small parts that may or may not be choking hazards (just a thought).
