    ugh i think this means i need jetfire, again. that combo mode is sick. i was thinking of getting the 2 pack one, but then the grey might look off and since the first jetfire has the same blue this works perfect.

    damn it.

    Like every other god-awful expensive Japanese exclusive I've talked myself into buying, gosh dang it's pretty.

    We haven't seen any photos of a Hasbro repaint of Optimus, but between this and Buster Prime I've already matched Hasbro's repaints for the first movie's Optimus.

    The internets tell me that Japan is a different DVD region than the USA, but the same BluRay region.

    This is my TF grail. So glad I got it for Christmas. I think I like the gray plastic better, since i don't have to worry about the paint chips. Although it would have been nice if they used the HA skids like silver plastic... It looks nice.

    But still my favorite prime. Also my swords are really tight on the spring and the ball joints are all tighter than the first release!

    I got mine the other day. He looks really great in person, photos do not do him justice. I love the blue swords.

    It's a shame the Tax would be such a killer on it to the U.K.

    I wonder if it comes via parcel Force or some other service and how that would effect the UK customs fees ?

    I bought mine last Thursday while it was still for JPY 11,060. I was tempted to wait if the price would drop juuuuust a bit lower.

    Yesterday I noticed the price is back at 15,800 JPY. Lucky me, that's what I call timing!

    Now I can't wait until it arrives, yaaaay

    Not open as much as it is that the region distribution was redone from DVDs and Japan is in the same region as North America for BR.

    I guess the lesson to learn is when something seems that overpriced, it will be going on clearance almost right away.
