    I'll be pissed if Japan gets season 3 before the US.

    Do you need to buy all three items and then send something in for the golden Optimus? Or does each item have a chance to win one? I'm curious how it works.

    With the way things are going, the Japanese DVDs might be the only way we get season three on DVD.

    and the TFA super fans need new pants. seriously its cool though unless i won one in a contest id not try to get one. Lucky Draws don't do much for me, id enter for a chance if it was in The USA and international mail wasn't required.

    Man, I really wish they had announced this earlier before I threw out all my Animated boxes from Wave 1. I had like 8 different barcodes!

    On a side note, I can see why Takara/Tomy is running all of these campaigns recently (along with the EZ Transformers giveaways). Animated is not doing very well in Japan and the stores that aren't running these gimmick promotions are stuck with these shelf-warmers.

    I'm not surprised animated isnt doing well in japan. TF over there has always been largely collector-supported, and most collectors already imported them long ago.

    I hear Japanese Animated toys are sell well(Especially, Optimus).
    And, "lucky draw campaigns"-like thing is a favorite ploy of Takaratomy! :D
