    Looks excellent. I'm glad he's finally seeing a release.

    I already own Que but I would love to get my hands on that one. Any idea where someone not in Japan could order one?

    Surely if he is movie based that would be Optimus's job

    I hope this isn't the unnamed one already up for pre-order at Japanese retailers, because I want it. I'm already pissed that I missed out on Dark Side Soundwave (gotta find a way to get ahold of that gorgeous repaint. Kind of ironically named, though, because the original was also Dark Side Soundwave, so the name along doesn't differentiate them much). TakaraTomy has been taking toys I never even cared about trying to get ahold of and making me want them more than ever... and this toy has a fantastic new head sculpt, which I had already decided was my breaking point.

    I NEED THIS.

    ZOMFG YOU'RE STILL ALIVE! EXCELLENT.

    But to answer your question, you could go to HLJ or AmiAmi or.... well, you could, if they weren't already sold out on pre-order. I ASSUME that's what "Autobot A" is. Although I could be wrong. We still have yet to see what the Voyager-priced "Decepticon A" will be, though. Personally, I always buy from Japanese retailers. The mark-up on imports to retailers such as BBTS (and even local New Zealand retailers.... hell, especially local NZ retailers, so I imagine they'd be just as bad price-wise in the UK) just aren't worth it, most of the time. Then again, Japan and New Zealand are fairly close, and the Americans complain because of the Japanese Yen, as well as the fact that their Transformers are already dirt cheap (and so they still complain about the prices, because they're ungrateful and/or don't realise that everywhere else, they're overpriced as all hell).

    Totally had to work in some New Zealand hatred there.

    Links, in case anyone wants to stare at these for hours on end, hoping they will change. Pro-tip: they won't (any time soon).

    I'm happy with my DOTM Que I got two months ago from BBTS, thanks.
    From this line I got only Soundwave, Dino and Devastator.

    Ah, was wondering if Takara would do this, considering the other cancelled Movie Trilogy Series stuff in Movie Advanced.

    Were I planning this toy, though, I'd have made him silver, to evoke Wheeljack's pre-DOTM Earth body from 'Rising Storm':

    He'll look great with Evasion Optimus and G1 colored Jazz.

    Well, allright, I was hoping he might get released one day! I never bothered to pick up Que because I wanted this version of the mold instead. I definitely want to get this to go with my movie Ratchets.
