Those are pretty interesting. May just slap down a preorder for now. They also have Takara jet Vehicon on preorder in the Prime section.


Wants: Botcon Grimlock, Dreadwing, Henkei Sunstreaker, G1 Mirage rear tire.

Dude, I know what the routine is like. Given that a few of us are parents I think no one is holding that against you.

You should get Rhion to hold all your figures hostage for a while so that you don't have the option to sell.

Where was it said that the Jet Vehicon was Japan-only? If it really is, I'll have to preorder a few of those.

It was in a Robot Kingdom post a couple days ago. Who knows how valid it is, but it is worth having it on preorder just incase. Rumor floating around is that the ones listed under United may be PCCs. If that proves true, that will save me a nice bit of cash.

Edit: Here is Robot Kingdom's listing where they say Japan Only Mold: http://www.robotkingdom.com/services...=us&CatID=91_1

I slapped a few on preorder as well. Not sure if I need a whole army of jets though.

tough for me to pull the trigger on just a product description....if i knew for sure this was like a voyager/leader class figure i'd buy it. Cyberverse-playset...or PCC's...no thanks.

Takara hasn't been doing too well with RID? Really? is there any article that points to that? I'm very interested in seeing how badly they are doing?

I guess if they do lousy enough, Takara might decide to go their own way on TF in the near future. Like they had Beast Wars 2 and Beast Wars Neo, which were still transformers. Else they'll do what they did last time and went with something else entirely like WebDiver. Anyone recall that?

But i guess my point is, if Takara goes their own way, that's just fewer resources to work on the TF Prime line for Hasbro.

Yeah, I don't know where exactly "Takara isn't doing well with Prime" comes from. People here in America don't seem to take too kindly to Arms Micron, but I imagine that it's tapping into Bandai's Gundam market quite a bit in Japan.

On top of that, that the Microns are actually given Shorts at the end of every episode of Prime gives it all the more relevance.

Trying to figure out if I am gonna want all those minicons (or whatever they are). May just slap in a preorder and hope I can pick and choose before they start shipping.

Read the reviews for the individual figures here on these boards. Generally, Takara figures have more paint apps, and this leads people to get them. The RID figures from Takara have had less paint apps then the Hasbro releases (for most) and include stickers instead that are... well unconvincing to a lot of us. So what I am saying is there hasn't been a real reason to buy the Takara version of a figure unless you really like the microns. I wasn't talking about sales, if that's what you thought. I have no idea how well their sales are doing. To each his own though, but the feedback just isn't as steller as their general henkei releases.
