    Also, why do we need a link to Seibertron linking to Walmart Canada?

    I honestly didn't think about that. I saw it on Seibertro.com, didn't see any made threads on it, so I posted it.

    Basically, you could've simply linked the Walmart.ca listing directly, cutting out the middleman. While crediting your source is of course appreciated, at least a direct link would have helped.

    That's another issue - do new developments regarding an ongoing news topic get buried on page 31 of an existing thread or do they warrant a new thread?

    I love this little guy, but like is mentioned above, the alt mode is terrible. The trailer on it is the best one I've ever seen, with gear-driven supports and a spring-loaded ramp. the Autobot symbol stand is all kinds of awesome as well.
    On a side note, I wish they would reissue the Cybertron Prime Hybrid Style too. I didn't find out about that figure until it was too late, and now it's hard to find and expensive...

    Yeah, I would have preferred they released that one instead. I only found out about it last month when this guy was revealed.

    I'll be waiting for the inevitable deep discount before picking this guy up.


    He does look cool though.

    He shouldn\'t be more than $50.
    If he is, it\'s a rip-off!

    Surprised this didn't get a fancy new paint job like the other Chinese New Year Primes did.
    Honestly, I'm disappointed.

    Too bad "Year of the Rooster" didn't see us get a MTMTE Whirl toy, since a fighting rooster is basically what Whirl is. (I still await a MTMTE Whirl)

    Probably has to do with this not being sold outside of Takara before (and not for a long while). I'm thinking the 'reissue' interest outweighs the 'redeco' interest.
