    I wouldn’t buy it don’t need big bulky to hold watch for others who are prime fans maybe different but I prefer buy digital watch where battery last months before needs be changed unlike computer watches batteries last few days to week before recharging

    Do people realize that this is for the Japanese/Asian market where Casio G-Shocks are part of the fashion essentials there?

    I bought the original Optimus/Megatron G-Shock watches for around ¥15,000 each, so I think the price is a bit too steep. 10,000 yen for a non-mp robot and a watch? Takara are getting greedy.

    As for the price:

    My Japanese chums told me that this is a LIMITED, almost "lucky draw" product. We must enter soonish to win the CHANCE of buying this figure.

    I'm not sure where the "¥29,000" price, quoted in the original TFW article, came from. If they price is legit, I would love to see the source, so they I can get it cheaper.

    Alas, on an Anglophone forum, probably not.

    That Optimus looks good. I think they could've trimmed that back pack a bit more. Maybe a 3rd party company will makes one of their own, without the mediocre watch.

    Wouldn't buy this as Optimus but remold him as Beast Wars Neo Heinlad and I'd definitely think about it getting it more.

    Yeah this looks pretty dope. I’d like it even more if it had flames like movie OP :D  Too bad I don’t wear watches.

    Nice!
    Definitely one to watch for.

    Still my favorite Ride Armor. xD

    As if the complaints about Devastator's balls weren't bad enough.

    They may look like ugly kids' watches to some of you, but believe me, there are people that go nuts for these things the same way people collect sneakers.

    Obviously, there's no guarantee on anything speculative, but I'll give anecdotal evidence: I bought a G-shock that was designed by Katsuhiro Otomo and had an AKIRA motif. Limited to 1000. It cost 20,000 yen. People list it on ebay and amazon for over $1000 now, and that was only a few years ago.

    If you're one of those people that actually buy toys as an "investment," this has the potential to be worth a lot down the line. OR, it could flop spectacularly. Nobody knows. But my only advice is if you think you might want this, don't sleep on it, cause it probably WILL sell out. I'm talking about the version with the actual watch, of course.
