And Cliffjumper, who dies in Ep1 and has a few cameos get how many toys?

Just for North America
FE
FE Zombie
PRID
SDCC Zombie
Cyberverse

That has to be a record for the amount of toys based compared to amount of appearences.

Oh and Tailgate has only got a Legends/legion toy - I'd have liked him to be a White Cliffjumper deluxe repaint.

And a bit of commons sense could have seen various repaints too like :

Soundwave as Soundblaster
Wheeljack as Makeshift (slight deco change) or in the red accent colours the Legion has.
Vehicon in purple. (as a Miner / season 2 colours)
Arcee as Flamewar in deluxe size

I feel thought they could have repainted Breakdown and Unicron and other and released them in boxed sets - like they have done many time for movie toys.

Another question is why no Open face Optimus variation ?

Not a bad article, purely speculative though, but there's a mistake; you're comparing Hasbro's MP10 Prime, who costs 110 USD at the time of writing, to MP01 Prime, who you price at 100 USD. Not entirely accurate, the hasbro version of MP01 always cost 50 USD, while the takara version cost 100. If that's the case, you want to compare it to takara's version of MP10 that costs 260 USD.

On topic, Cliffjumper was always presented as a main cast autobot in all advertisments and promotional stuff leading to the show [even the prequel comic establishes him as the protagonist], so it makes sense he'd get as many toys. The only mess-up is how late the toys came out in relation to the show. And I wouldn't count SDCC Cliff as a "regular" release, as he's not really available to the public.
SOC, Yamato, Hot Toys, FE and more for sale!

At least Hasbro is not Mattel.
I don't care if your world is ending today, cos I wasn't invited to it anyway.

SDCC Cliff was on Hasbro's store though so that should count.

btw when's that show coming out? Beast Ward.......never heard of it, sounds fascinating....lol

That's not true. They showed like a 2 second flash of him when Optimus was working under Megatron as Orion Pax

I'm just mad the ONE time a Bumblebee remold/repaint could have been REALLY good, HasTak had to drop the ball and use the Knockout mold for Smokescreen

Don't Takara do most of the actual engineering? 'Cause I'm pretty sure that Breakdown simply fell outside of Hasbro's budgeting.
