    Yeah, that's right. Remy is alive and well and has finally bought some new toys. :D 

    Most of these have already been released, but Primus isn't supposed to come out in Japan until the 23rd (which means F2F will have him in stock on Wednesday).

    See here for some preview pics:

    Of particular note is the Force Chip Primus comes with: A silver Autobot Chip - with a CODE on its back (sp8u). Does this mean Takara are releasing the SAME toy as Hasbro, just in different packaging? :huh

    I don't see Chromedome in the group shot of cybertron leaders, kinda weird I think.

    OMG!!!!!

    The back box artwork with all the Cybertron leaders is awesome. It makes me even more happy I ordered the Galaxy force one.

    Not really fort max was the leader, chromedome was more a feild captain or some thing like that, bit like ultra magnus.

    That box back is incredible. I hope Takara offers that as a wallpaper on their website.

    Back of the box...beautiful. All the Autobot and Maximal Leaders with Primus...I just crapped myself in sheer amazement. Well, I can't wait any sooner for the big guy to make it to the states.

    Either that or the one Hasbro had at Toyfare was the Takara version, maybe one on loan? I know most of the stuff Hasbro had on display at Botcon were Takara toys. Although I guess that doesn’t explain the code on the force chip.

    At any rate I got one on pre-order from F2F cant wait till it get's here :D

    Wow, that box art is fantastic. Takara really pulled out all the stops on Primus' packaging. :thumbs2:

    Takara Primus is going to kill my wallet just for the back of the cover
    -G1 style box(not that attractive)
    -All the Cybertron Leader Group Shot(Now that's EXTRA!!!!)

    I really have to ask Hasbro what will they pull for the Hasbro Primus.
    -Extra Dead End.... Not worth it.
    -4 force chips?(earth, jungle, speedia, giant)..not worth it.
    -The cybertron ship cannon... may be.
    -the most important.. price tag.

    That is the most Kick Ass box backing on any transformer I have ever seen.
