    I prolly seem stupid not knowing these, or what happened, but how come I've never seen these floating around until now?

    Sadly, those are Asia exclusives.

    They're exclusive to territories under Hasbro Asia's jurisidiction, so you probably won't find them "just floating around".

    They're Asia market exclusives which is why you haven't seen them on the shelves. They were announced about a month ago.

    It was TFSource, not BBTS. As far as I know BBTS hasn't put up a pre-order for these yet (but I've been waiting eagerly for it!).

    HTS had the SE stuff on their website, which was an Asia exclusive. One wonders if they are gonna do the same with these...

    It wasn't BBTS. I have been watching them religiously.

    I'm half tempted to get this just to upgrade my Classics Cliffjumper with that head. Depends on the cost, might still be cheaper than any of the head upgrades.

    Dear Fred,

    Thank you for your kind words, we greatly appreciate all of your business and support!

    I have contacted our Product Manager and was informed that we are currently looking into this line of figures to see if we are able to obtain them. We will list any available figures on our website as soon as a supplier can confirm shipment.

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with and have a great day!

    Swerve might be the only one I'm interested in, depending on how good his head actually looks.

    Springer: I have Warbot Defender
    Wheelie: I have Legends Wheelie, which scales better.
    Cliffjumper: I have Classic Cliffjumper and Prime Cliffjumper. I don't need their bastard love child.

    I am looking forward to picking up Wheelie, Springer, and Hotspot... Maybe the Megatron so Laser prime will have someone to clash with.
