    That's my point....ther's people on here trying to rub it in the botcon owner's faces (I know you're not.) and this Japanese exclusive may be harder to get thatn the botcon version of TC.

    Alot of people in this thread are acting like TC just got mass-released. I don't own TC and I want one.....I'm looking at this news like it's a bad thing because this was our last real chance at a mass-release for TC and we got a Japanese exclusive out of the deal.

    Japanese exclusives have proven to be even more limited and harder to find than US exclusives.

    Damn, and the list keeps growing.

    I have the Botcon set and must have these because they're different. I'm a Classics hound.

    As for the infamous '07 set, I don't see it losing that much luster in terms of its value. It's still the best one ever done and has the beautiful Thrust and Dirge jets in it.

    WOW!

    Someone told me the internet exploded, and I replied, "What? Did they release Tundercracker in Japan, or something?"

    .... little did I know.

    Expected? bah.

    I guess if you go around saying you expect everything to happen, you can never be wrong.

    That's the part I don't understand. Around Botcon 2007 time, the set was available for weeks as a non-attendee preorder. (I think it was around $365 for the boxed set.) If you had the money, more power to you.

    The only people allowed to vent about TC are set owners. There shouldn't be any redirected hate towards these folks. It just doesn't make sense. Look at the thread tags ... "botcon 2007 owned" & "ha ha u can own these"

    Good job on the new functionality trolls ... now back to the $24.99 is too expensive for Japanese Classics thread.

    Wow, some of these posts laughing about Botcon Seekers owners "getting screwed" are hilarious. I can't wait to see how pricey THESE exclusive pieces will be seeing as how they're supposed to be low production exclusives.

    Don't count your chickens before they're hatched.


    And no I don't have the Seekers anymore, but it doesn't mean I'm not irritated by the fact that so many people are so spiteful towards others that have what they can't.

    It was always fairly obvious that the Henkei exclusives would include at least one Seeker from the Botcon set. Personally, I'm not at all surprised.

    could care less for any of these, although it does kind of spit in the face of the people that got the Botcon release last year(and yes i'm one of them) but i'm glad other people will get the chance. Already got the classics skywarp but might have to look into getting the toon accurate one and maybe even prime just need to see better pics

    Meh, more for you guys. For what Thundercracker alone will cost, I'll get Prowl, Sunstreaker, Galvatron, Acid Storm and Onslaught. :D

    And I'll say it was fairly obvious that it wouldn't be a Seeker from the Botcon set, because many folks were sure that Takara wouldn't break dare due to FP's "exclusive".

    I had hoped Thundercracker would be one of the Henkei Henkei Transformers Exclusives. I will gladly pay $150.00 to get one. I am guessing it will go for more than that though.

    Definately like this one over the FP exclusive. Prefer the colors on this one.

    Can anyone comfirm what I am reading?

    From what I can tell, it seems to suggest that they will be taking preorders for SW/TC on May 22nd and shipping them sometime in September?
