    Wait wait....Fall of Cybertron game accurate colors bruticus??

    So those who got the SDCC version only payed for the pretty box then....

    Hasbro is making some pretty low moves if you ask me.

    Ebay:
    It's Takara's release not Hasbro's. And @ $40 a piece, these retail for double the cost of Hasbro's exclusive.

    Still very odd to be releasing what was a SDCC exclusive as a retail. I doubt many will be buying this version at that price.

    I certainly am. Pre-ordered immediately. I much prefer Takara's metallic paint schemes over Hasbro's. I was at SDCC and passed up on this in hopes that Takara would do this. Glad I waited. Much of the price hike is simply due to the import cost...although when I was in Japan TF's were definitely more expensive than in the states in general.

    Not saying that should make people want to spend a lot of money, only that Imports cost more.
