    Nice. I just went and bought POTP Nemesis Prime as an opponent for Star Convoy.

    I hope Takara manages to reduce the greyness of the trailer panels in super robot mode, even if it just involves adding some paint to them.

    Well I guess I'll be buying POTP Leader Optimus again, for the third time. Wonder what the inner robot will look like, maybe they will even make a better cab out of it (star convoy was a long nose if memory serves, should be interesting).

    First Big Powered and now Star Convoy. I guess Takara just got sick of Hasbro ignoring Japanese properities. Guessing they'll be doing their own Star Saber and Dezaras down the road.

    Should look really good with Galaxy Convoy as well. Can't wait.

    The Armada Optimus Prime made my wallet disappear. Seriously, I\'m hooked on it.

    I just hope they found a way to clean up the back of the cab somehow. That Orion was embarrassing.

    Now that I think of it, I really hope we get those Micromasters as the Air Defense Minicons remolded to have Minicon ports and with Sonar thrown in at some point.

    if you are talking about Star and Armada Convoy these are gray protoypes and not yet ready for sale. we wont know even know if they will be avalible for western audinces yet. I bet they will though and most likely sold through selects or pulse or even the third party sites might have it. or if you have a amazon japan account you could look there.

    Those are exclusives to Atmos - a Japanese Clothing Store. If they ever become available, like the BAPE ones, people will have to wait. Otherwise, they'll have to go through middlemen in Japan.

    To my knowladge most of the On line store like TFsource and KapowToys sell the Takara Figures, they just cost more because of import fees.

    And Warden said at Toyfair that they currently have no plans to release Armada Prime, I don't remember if he was asked about Star Convoy.

    he did not at least I don't remember him saying so. but I still think that there is a good chance that he is released to the west either through pulse or selects or most likely through one of the third party sites.

    I can't think of a set of circumstances where the Japanese releases aren't available to western fans in some capacity, but I have my doubts that Hasbro will release Armada Prime in any way except for a full retail release being a brand new mold, but I could see it for Star Convoy as he is a remold.

    Armada prime will be released I am sure of it even if its through a site like the chosen prime or big bad toy store. same for Star convoy as he is less known in the west than Armada Prime is. that is the main reason why I think Armada Prime will see state side release in some form alongside the nostalgia that is starting to kick in for the UT.

    Hasbro would have to be crazy Geewunners to not release Armada Prime... unfortunately, that's exactly what they seem to be these days, so god knows if they will.

    It's going to be released in the Takara LG line, but not Hasbro Generations...
