JETWING OPTIMUS: HASBRO VERSION ! - The Allspark Forums
Almost hope its real.
The Mechtech card inside the package makes me say "No."
EDIT: That and the peeling Hasbro sticker up top.
I say fake, why would a hasbro toy have a Japanese mech tech card?
Dark of the moon toys planned for next spring??? I DONT THINK SO!!
Dotm will probably be over by xmas and thats a huge item to have during spring
I call FAKE!!!
Edit: I'ts also it's the guys first post and he signed up today???
I'm crossing my fingers XD
I wouldn't mind another of this mold that I can go down the street to buy. Plus are you guys saying that you don't want a cool looking Mechtech card with your toy's ?
There are smudges where the Japanese has been removed from the box. Obvious Photoshop is obvious. Compare: http://i53.tinypic.com/301fw4g.jpg
Yeah,sounds too good to be true. But i'll damn sure try to "keep hope alive!"
Yeah ... not believing it.
I wanted this to be real so bad
The Takara one doesn't have a card in the box, and I don't really see any smudges where the Japanese "used to be". I could see this being offered to Target since Hasbro only needs to sell to the retailer to make their money. Selling a toy this large that long after the movie would be Target's problem. That said though, I don't see Target picking this up even if it is a legitimate solicitation.
If I recall correctly the Takara one actually does have a card in the box (mine is packed away in storage so I can't be 100%).
Not in the pic Process posted.
The takara jetwing prime does have the mech tech card. Trust me I live in Japan and bought it on the release date, I know what I'm talking about.
DAMNIT!!! i knew it was to good to be true
Top right of the box looks really photoshopped, looks like the japanese txt was blured out
Could this be the Australian Target version? I know that Target in Australia often carry items from Japan.
There is no product code number below the "Ages 5+". I call bullshit.
The Hasbro logo in the upper right corner extends beyond the edge of the packaging.
Why is there a "registered trademark" ®behind "Autobot", but none behind "Optimus Prime"? Or, if Hasbro were to consider the compound term "Jetwing Optimus Prime" the toy's trademarked name, there should be a ™.
Edit: it's the Australian TakaraTomy packaging with Hasbro and Target stickers applied. This is not what a North American Hasbro release would look like.
Nevermore speaks words of wisdom guys - I'd follow his assessment and say this is a hoax, or a bad mock-up (the original link does say it is a mock-up, but it seems unlikely)
Nope, we've got a gallery of the Australian release and the box looks very different:
Jetwing Optimus Prime - TakaraTomy (English packaging, Australian release) - Dark of the Moon Autobots - TFW2005.COM
It's a modified Australian package. Either a really quick mockup (one logo removed, two logos added) or a fake.
