    Nice. I'll be adding both to my collection. (along with my Botcon and Target Exclusive versions) Now all we need is a G1 acurate Ramjet and I'll have all of the Classic Seekers in G1 deco. Muwhahahahahhahaaha.:ev: :ev: :ev: 

    Seriously tho, this has been expected for a while now. The fact that it's exclusive in Japan won't hurt the Botcon set value all that much either. In fact, I think it'll inflate this one due to the high demand for it. Then we'll have debates about how expensive that Thundercracker will be and how it's unfair that some have both versions in their collections. Muwhahahahahhahaaha.:ev: :ev: :ev: 

    Anyways, I think it's just rewards for Hasbro making Exillion almost the same as Takara's DVD exclusive. Now let's see the Henkei Seeker Clone set.

    Oh yes, the Crystal Prime rocks too.

    Wow, never expected em to do TCracker. I'm surprised the floodgates of bitching hasn't already commenced. Looks good though. I like Hasbro's Skywarp much better however. Clear Prime? Might buy it, I'm a sucker for clearish figures

    At least neither of them are generic Seekers. The chances of a domestic US release or US exclusive release of Sunstorm is that much better now! If I can get these I will, even though I have the BotCon TC and the Target S-warp, the latter of which has a tiny crack in the tailfin from transforming.

    Why does it feel like these will be absurdly expensive to obtain due to the exclusive nature and end up costing the same as Botcon exclusives. They are already close to 30$us each add import costs and markups and these things will be close to 60$. I am surprised there hasn't been more bitching about price yet as even after resale, Botcons eekers averaged out to 50-75$ per fig.

    Is anyone taking pre-orders for them yet? I wouldn't mind picking them up tho I do miss the opportunity for Sunstorm.

    lol sweet. Although TC will probably end up costing about the same as Botcon TC does anyway.

    Man, Thundercracker looks great. I have the Botcon version, but I'm very glad that more people will have a chance to own one.

    I think it's cool that Japan is doing an exclusive of TC. It also means that my Botcon 07 set will remain high in value because you were only able to get that thundercracker with that set. :thumbs2:

    Thundercracker????

    And he looks better than the Botcon version.

    Holy shit, you're freaking kidding me!!!!

    Now I feel like I maybe shouldn't have sold all my classics.

    Now hopefully all that complaining about the Botcon 07 set will stop.

    I doubt it, though.

    Looks sweet. I like the Skywarp, too, but TC is the only one I'm interested in. Hope I can afford him. :)

    henkai thundercracker *clap clap* congratulations takara you made the universe implode. Who wants to play dungeons and dragons?

    If I do get henkai it will be through someone else rather than import them directly , after the demand has lifted.

    Expect much price gouging on Thundercracker. I like Skywarp a lot more than the Target version.... but the launchers don't really seem to match.

    So far everyone was talking about how people will complain yet none did:lol ! Anyways kinda nice, but way too expensive, and I think the Hasbro SW looks better.
