    Does anyone know when the Prime series figures will be released stateside? Also, are we going to get the powerizers figures, or are they exclusive to foreign markets?

    I wish FE was the wide release and these Powerizers were the limited release we never saw in stores.

    This. I'm a little tempted to get Voyager Megs, yetI have no doubts about getting the Deluxe. Also, I want every FE figure except for one, Vehicon.

    Why would you want that. Why not hope for access to both lines instead.

    March is the RiD release, what about dates for FE Cliff/Voyager/Entertainment Pack?

    The consensus is one of two possible options. 1) FE is a limited line that will have run its course by the time RID premieres at US retail; meaning, we may never see FE Cliff, the Voyagers, and/or the box set. 2) the FE figures as well as the remainder of what's not shown up at US retail will run alongside RID in March. Neither has been confirmed, but these are the prevailing options that I've been able to glean over the last few weeks of fan speculation.

    No need.

    The reason I say it is because it bugs me that the better versions of some of these characters might never be seen in stores by a lot of us, and I have no intention of ever picking up the hot mess that is Powerizer Optimus, or the clearly inferior RiD Cliffjumper, or the worse-than-a-Deluxe Voyager Megatron.

    Wow, really? Seriously, that would deny items to people who do want them. Kinda self-centered if you ask me.

    I think we'd need multiple jars within a few days' time.

    It would be if it was up to me. Or maybe even if I thought it was up to me. But obviously it's not and obviously I don't. So get a grip.

    Calls 'em like I sees 'em. It bugging you is one thing, but wanting to deny people figures due to personal preference... I dunno, man.

    That's nothing. I just wished for all of the donuts in the world. None for you. How do you like that? I don't think my wish will come true but that was still pretty mean of me, wasn't it?

    Just guessing here, but I don't think we've seen the last of the First Edition molds assuming they get passed over for the regular line. Even if they aren't dumped for discounts at Marshalls/TJ Maxx/Big Lots/Ollies/Wherever, they will probably be eventually be re-released as slight or radical repaints, maybe as store exclusive packs of some kind.

    This. I can't see Hasbro putting that much money & effort into R&D just for the end product to see such an insanely limited release.
