    Mentioned in the news story here? I've never bought any TFs internationally. Also how can I avoid paying more from a middle man seller and get one from a direct source. Thanks.

    ask members that live in HK, or go on an HK forum as such, look thru yahoo hk auctions, or go to a reliable middle man to order for you.

    I imagine a lot of vendors will be carrying this version over the Japanese version, as that's where the sources lie.

    This is often the case with e-Hobby items as the US retailers get the Hong Kong version rather than the Japanese version.

    Agreed. Most online vendors will probably get the HK version. I would wait and see once people get theirs in the next month or so. I wouldn't worry about an immediate sell out due to the price and people that prefer the Hasbro version.

    Agreed the hasbro version does not have the trailer but will also retail for about a third to half the price of the import.

    I haven't paid any attention to Masterpiece Rodimus, what's the difference with the Hong Kong version ?

    It comes with a coin and a black box that's internally lined with aluminum foil that's called a "display case."
