    I've certainly never seen that Optimus pack before! That's TR Kup!

    I like the deco on WFC Prime, but I think my favorite thing is the totally random movie Prime on the box.

    If I had the money I would get whoever snapped these pictures to middleman and ship me Overlord and the clones.

    I guess that means we're looking at, what, November before preorders go up here? Bonus points if they can drag their feet all the way to December 26th.

    That Prime pack is so weird -- 2 ancient Cybertronian Primes from different continuities in FoC Prime and Sunbow G1 (-esque) Orion Pax in a Bayverse themed box...
    :drunk 

    What was the relative Pricepoint for the clones? Deluxe, Voyager or somewhere between?

    So, OP, can you share the price tag on the Clones, converted to US$?

    Would only make sense if put in relation to the price tags for the regular assortments, though.

    First semi-comparison shot I've seen of the clones compared to deluxe figures, and those are definitely a little bigger than Legends/Scout class. Loving that prime box too, but wish it had used the G1 War Dawn head design instead. Though I am really digging the animated/marvel comic influenced head design still too. Still hoping we get another release of it with an animation accurate head though.

    Probably sooner than that. I would guess August for the Prime set and Overlord, September for the clones.

    dawGTX has shared with the group that the Clones are retailing for NT $999.

    That's approximately USD $33.

    You know what I like about your store? The shelves are STOCKED.

    When these arrive at US retail, you'll be lucky to see 1 or 2 copies on the shelf. I don't know if the US stores are just more conservative about ordering, but I'm always astonished to see the piles of TF figures in overseas stores. :eek:  No joke, my dreams look like that store. :(

    Well, don't forget those energon/allspark cube TLK things that Hasbro has to prioritize. They need to get here ASAP - our shelves need the warming. :) 

    Of course, why settle for a simple delay? I say we get 1 or 2 copies of these per store, next month, then wait 3 months for a restock! :thumb

    Don't forget the additional time to be factored in for the scalpers to be notified so they can take the 1-2 copies before they can hit the shelves and mark them up 300%.

    What if we buy up everything in the stores, wait until the very last day to return, just so they stock new stuff in between.

    They get the heads up like anyone else. I don't think there is a special "scalper signal" which beats the rest of the buyers...
