    United toys are general products.
    It looks like just "selling point" or "catch phrase". :D

    For once, the Japanese pretty much says what the English says. So... I wouldn't be surprised if they limited this release to major retailers or something. Who knows.

    The Japanese don't seem worried, though - the only one pre-sold out anywhere that I've seen is Rodimus Prime.

    "Limited Quantity" ? Like how they didn't make any more of United Jazz, Tracks, and Frumble, when they sold out?

    Oh Takara, is there anything you won't do to grub extra cash from a cartoon that's a quarter of a century old?

    So the two tone red on the Henkei rodimus reissue wasn't a flaw, it was a feature?

    What kind of marketing strategy is TakaraTomy up to,just because they paste the stupid "limited quantity" sticker will trick all of us to grab these figures? No Way!!

    I bet it will, it may also just be informing any people who were flip flopping on buying them to buy them if they think they're not going to be in abundance.

    Interesting. We also haven't seen anything about promotions involving the new Microns we saw a couple of weeks back. WTH, TakTom? What are you up to?

    Those are not the Japanese releases because they have no bio card; Asia releases. That may be something Hasbro Asia added... though I doubt.

    Yeah only a few United figures came with cards for the Arcade Card game TakaraTomy was promoting early last year. I imagine none of these characters were added to the game or had an equivalent in the game so it's a moot point (plus it's been nearly a year since the last cards were even made for that game).
