wow that is a shiny yellow turd.
glad i never liked that micron...
Ugh another exclusive to track down!
Yeah this guy is going to be handed out to kids at the Tokyo Toy Show, similar to the clear yellow Pinpoint back in December.
man, you gotta be sorry for the Minicon completists the way Japan puts these out
Wow. Just Another Micron I Don't NEED To Import. lol But Seriosly, What Is Up With All Of These Excuses To Re-release Microns That Look Oversized On The Mold It Was Meant To Be Used On?
Yeah - this was mentioned in the thread for the other two exclusives... But it's good to finally see a picture
meh, it's just a clear version of T.tomy PRID Bumblebee's AM.
How many more redecoes of B2 do you guys think is coming.
Soooooo how do I get my hands on one of these??
(Raises hand while looking down sadly.)
You weren't around during Armada or the Unicron Trilogy in general, were you?
Though these will apparently be given to kids at the convention, I wonder if Bodhar will be able to get any. If I can get the two Optimuses for a cheaper price than BBTS from him and throw this in as well, I'd be a happy camper.
I'd feel sorry for the completists if they didn't have a choice
Not enough until I can buy them in quantity by themselves!
A pair of this toy in grey would look fab on Powermaster Prime's shoulders.
I will take the generation 1 minicons/microns over these any day. Just too many exclusives to track down.
This one might be harder to get since it's handed out only to the kids under junior high school age (15?). So anyone who plans to sell one at a secondary market needs to be at the event with a child (and take the micron away from the kid! how dare they, TFs are for the kids!! ).
So I am glad I personally don't want one.
Some of those Firebolt Clear Yellow Versions (the baggied PCC Pinpointers that were given away to kids at an earlier convention for answering a survey or something) did end up on the secondary market, and not for ridiculous prices (well, for minicons anyways). I imagine this one will be more in-demand from minicon collectors since it's an actual variant rather than what Firebolt Clear Yellow Version was (exactly the same as a US release), but even with how they're giving these Shining B2s away, I don't think they'll be impossible to get.
That said, I wouldn't anticipate these being available at online retailers (I don't recall any preorders for Firebolt Clear Yellow Version going up, though I may have missed some since I had no interest in tracking it down since it's the exact same as Pinpointer) and Bodhar sent out his e-mail for the two Optimuses earlier this afternoon stating he wasn't going to be able to get any Shining B2s since it's kid-only.
