As a (so far) Bot Shots completist/addict, can I just say...... I REALLY hope the only difference between these and the US versions is the packaging.

I don't want my stupid, irresponsible brain to be presented with the option of paying $20 to import, say, a slightly lighter Thundercracker with an extra stripe, or something. It can't be trusted with things like that.

Hopefully the Hasbro bot shots peg warmers from USA retail shelves. get removed from stores & then loaded up on a huge boat & shipped to japan. Takara can add a japanese sticker to the packages & sell them as is.

Indeed, this is news I've been dreading. I have this horrible image of myself shedding a tear as I click BUY IT NOW on a $80 Japanese exclusive variant of the seeker mold in a translucent black named 'Stormcloud' or something.

Imagine if they make a bunch of new clear Bot Shots as campaign exclusives?

Prowl is the singular release other than Barricade and bumblebee doesn't have stripes by the looks of things.
