    Ugh, I could practically hear the gears grinding as he forced Optimus's waist into place. YOU LET IT SPIN! That's the point! He does it in the show, hence the toy mimmicks that!

    What's the point of the review? They are the same figures that we have had before. There aren't any new features on them.

    The only one I'm interested in getting out of these 4, because of the new paint, is Voyager Megatron. The metallic silver is definitely a lot better than the light gray we got from the Hasbro version. Then again, that was a crappy mold. I'll pass. New paint doesn't make up for a crappy mold.

    I found it funny that the guy doing the review looked confused when it was time to pose Megatron's Fusion Cannon. LOL. He experienced what everybody who owns that mold goes through every time you want to try to make a pose with it; we think that cannon don’t look right. And it doesn't.

    I can't justify importing these but I'd love to. I really like the paint job on all of them. Even Bulky.

    I'm glad Japan is getting their own wave of Animated.

    yeah, pretty much. but that's not to say shiny isn't badass (and less likely to self destruct than the ever-sexy transmetal finishes) and these are aimed at japanese kids who never had the chance to buy the screen-accurate Hasbro ones domestically.

    If transformers collectors are miffed the Asian release of these toys are just shiny reapaints, can you imagine the FanAngst if Takara had simply released the Hasbro decos as they were? there would be blood in the (internet forum) streets.

    I've already got all these figures, so i think the only jap one i'll be picking up is arcee because :europe: :/
