    Looks like I'm headed to TRU this morning...

    Nightbirdy, did they have the Red Rampage and White Demolishors out? Any others?
    Edit: nvm, I just got back. They had those two as well as Dirge, Recon Ironhide, Bludgeon, and Alliance BB.

    I got my two buttons! (one for every 1,999 yen spent)

    It's TRU exclusive campaign item, confirmed in toy magazines.
    from Jan. 23(street date of initial NEST wave), you purchase over 2000 yen to get the badge(numbers limited 4000).

    I think this thread is a new low for the "Japan gets everything better" mentality, because....

    You know you're talking about a crappy badge right? At least the NEST patch from that Hasbro 2 pack is sew-on and thus actually functions like the NEST unit patch. This is a crappy badge that says "LOOK AT ME! I am wearing a dorky badge!" :)

    I'd wear it. But would prefer a lapel pin.

    Patch Superior.

    Not really, no. If it had been something like those free Mini-Cons TRU gave away back in 2003, or the free Energon weapons in 2004, I'd be jealous.

    4000 limited ? Japanese makers like to set limited amount to juice people's wallets... it is not unusual. recalling how their automakers always made 500 units of a particular models in the past just for their own country...
