    I only looked at the listings on amiami. On that site, it lists the estimated price in your local currency below the JPY price. In my case, it said about $30 USD beneath the JPY price.

    Amiami has them at $32 before shipping, Amazonjp will usually drop down close to that eventually.

    It feels surreal that we have figures now that can replicate Watts's weird box art poses.

    Oh man, I hate how much "work" involved there is when ordering from AJP.

    Ordered so fast.

    Sitting at $96.37 shipped to my doorstep for now.

    Never realized just how absolutely HARD toy Cliffjumper's design goes until now.
    I think we need more Cliff's with shoulder wheels.

    Cliffjumper 's face looks off like the eyes are too small and he looks more pissed. I mean it's in character but the toy had a more neutral expression. Hopefully the final version will look better.

    The differences in silhouette are minimal enough that most will not GAF due to the added functionality. I actually think the shoulder placement looks better here than the originals.

    Only disappointment I have is that there’s no cartoon versions available for preorder but ah I see Takara…even more of a sign that you’re playing the long game with this line….

    …might even get a G2 Bumblebee if they make it.

    BRING ON SOME DECEPTICONS!!!

    sort of surprised they didn\'t do the double-dip and make anime Bumblebee with new head and headlights painted, etc...unless Cliff is the double-dip

    lol. I can finally retire my old joke that it was impossible to replicate the box art with the actual toys. Never thought that day would come!

    Fingers crossed if TakTom can create multiple Mini Bot variants from this mold.

    Missing Link: for people who know Generations won’t go far enough and who enjoyed the original toys just wanted full articulation just never thought it would happen but here we are 40 years later and it’s finally happening

    I wonder when we'll get to see the boxes. I hope they've done new art for them like they did for prime!

    I think these are the 1st of many…especially once they make the sculpt for Hubcap’s head
