    But man, why does it always have to end up as a Hasbro/Takomy thing??? We need more people like me... GET BOTH LINES DAMMIT OR GET NONE AT ALL!!!:lol

    Well, actually.. I wasn't talking about how awesome the shopping was, but rather how badly geeks are treated over there. I suppose it depends on your perspective :) 

    No kidding. Pick and choose what you like, then shut up and be glad you have the ability to choose. Consumer choices = good

    Hasbro's release dates on TF's are always somewhat deceptive. What that usually means is market saturation of that product by that date.

    I'm pretty sure it will appear on US shelves early to mid summer at the latest.

    Yeah, some of us just won't be able to find it. Pretty much exactly what happened with Unicron. Some stores were stocking him way before the time he was supposedly going to be "out". I know I got mine pretty early. :D

    C-00 makes sense in that Primus is a Cybertron/Autobot and comes before all others. S-00 wouldn't make sense, since although Primus *is* Seibertron.... why would there be the "-00"? There's only one Seibertron.... wouldn't it just be "S"?

    One must point out that for all the assorted umming and ahhing about Primus' designation number, HLJ are probably going off a barely legible fax from Takara, and have been more than known to mistype these things before (Holly Saber minicon team anyone? Or even the infamous Buzzsaw vs Bra two pack).

    It quite possibly is GC-00, so I wouldn't get my head over the logic of it being anything else.

    HLJ had "Buler & Runabout" and "Long Howl & Puzso". "Bra vs Bugsaw" was Action-HQ.

    Fairly badly. Anybody over there who isn't a kid that watches anime is considered a geek.


    Btw, to get an idea of what Takara's Galaxy Force Primus looks like, look at Primus' toy pic in the Master Collector scan a few months back - the photograph Hasbro provided to MC appears to be Takara's photography, it is posed well and does not seem to use Hasbro's lame photoshop airbrushing.

    Though be aware, like Vector Prime and Galaxy Convoy's stock photos, that may be a hand-painted proto that looks alot better than the toy we'll actually get.

    For anyone importing, remember that Hasbro said at Botcon that the US version is going to come with an extra "that you'll really want."

    Extra or not a year is going to be a long wait, especially for us with our Takara over familiarity. :(

    HLJ did not mistype it. I have received solicitations for the figure from another supplier, who ALSO calls it C-00 Primus (albeit they use the "Romanized Kana" spelling Primasu).

    *Resigns to buying both* When Archer said 'it will make you want two of them' i hope it didn't meant two different *Hasbro* versions on top of the Takara version.


    It's not *that* bad is it??
