Well, this does make me want to buy Starscream now when I find him. I'm going to get Blaster too. Not Soundwave though. The deluxe version is fine for me.

I'm with Burnout here. Total BS that to get main characters you need to pay almost three times the already higher retail cost to import them.
Honestly, collecting just isn't as much fun as it used to be...
"It is only logical, as I gaze upon the spark of this femme-bot, that I guide my dexterous manipulator and apply additional servos to the task of making it stronger, so that she may comprehend a femme-bot's expected role. Logic dictates."

i kno thats right!!! im usually a retail kind of guy, but tfp is the first series that i have tried to collect "all" of the onscreen characters and they made it ree-diculous for me to do so because of the "limited run" of these figures or "not brought to u.s. retail" with those figures... has it been this way with all of the series or is it just this one, and now- all those afterwards? i have to agree with you-uns on this one... hasbro...we kno ur in here snoopin around and shtuff...stop taking the fun out of collecting...*grimmaces* !!

Skywarp, yes! I was hoping they were going to do this! Count me in! Now I am for sure getting Generations Starscream.

Damn, gotta get Skywarp as I don't trust Hasbro to not release him or just release one of Skywarp/Thundercracker.

Oh sweet Mercy yes! I was hoping so much for FOC Starscream to get repainted! I honestly don't think I'll ever need to buy a Seeker trio again with these ones in existance

Eh, Skywarp's not really worth importing to me. But if all three came out in the US so I could get that WfC Seeker trio thing going on, I'd probably nab them.

Transformers Prime has been unusually frustrating in this regard, given Takara's commitment to releasing show characters and Hasbro's commitment to releasing any old random thing. (To be fair, to be financially viable the line must attract the many, many kids who don't have access to the Hub, so being attractive on the shelf may be trumping other considerations.)

However RotF and DotM also were frustrating for show character completists. Basically we probably shouldn't be those.
