    I want the dragon, but have never attempted to purchase one of these campaign items before. Do I just sit and wait for them to pop up on eBay, or will BBTS and the like have a few available?

    The tag at Target for the Optimus/Grimlock 2 pack has Grimlock listed as Ivan.

    When does the USA get bonus figs with purchase? :( 

    Spend 3000 yen... so it's like, "buy 1 figure, get a free minicon!" :eek:  That's nice.

    Neat! Strafe, Scorn and Slug are obvious references for three of them...who would the Brimstone/Nightscream dragon be referencing though? Snarl?

    Both.

    BBTS regularly puts up preorders, but depending on how rare these will actually be, you may end up paying higher prices then can be found elsewhere.

    I think the Hellflame microns were the last set that was truly hard to come by, but that was initially. I've seen some of them pop up for cheap prices on Mandarake, and multiple Hellflame micron kits were available at Botcon for the same cheap prices as other Arms Micron campaign kits.

    If you want to play it safe, place a preorder at BBTS whenever these go up, but save a search on eBay and check each day to see when these show up. Sets aren't hard to find, but if you only want one, cross your fingers it isn't the AEON exclusive micron because those are the ones that have been harder to track down solo.

    If Thunderlips is really the name, that's awesome.

    Wow. That is a level of Meta that I would not have expected from Takara.

    When stuff doesn't sell. Mini-con bonus packs, those Cybertron 2-packs of deluxes/scouts and most recently those 2-packs of Beast Hunter figures that went for something insanely cheap. :(  Japan gets all the good freebies. Only one that does that sort of thing here is Lego.

    Based on colors I'd have to go with Slash.
