    EDIT (REMOVED ERRORS) - Toys R Us Japan are giving away free A4-sized "clear files" to customers purchasing overJapanese Yen or more in their shops, according to their website (seen in the attached screenshot). The "clear files" depict what looks to be the current incarnation of Optimus Prime, from the new film.

    That's not what it says.

    It says that the files will be given to the first 3000 customers at Toys'R Us (excluding Babies'R Us only facilities) for a purchase of 2000 yen or superior of TakaraTomy brand Transformers products.
    Incidentally, today is the release date of Optimus Prime and Bumblebe, both priced at 3999Y at 2999Y respectively.

    Honestly, if you do not understand what is written on a text, do not just invent it.
    If you are figuring out what is written (which is fair enough), do not say "according to their website".

    File folder, eh? Not really something that I'm chomping at the bit to get as an incentive for shopping at J-TRU myself but others might find it neat.

    Actually, I originally wrote "if you spend over 2000 yen", but had problems adding the text to the site via my phone. I added info about optimus and bumblebee, but then, i also had problems uploading the pictures. In the end, i had to give up and let the site keep my botched edits.

    My apologies for the incorrect information.

    I added an edit, finally. If you could, please "report" my original post, plus the url of the main news page article containing the error, and inform them of the error, please?

    Btw, Seibertron copied the news article. I know because they used MY edited screenshot. I removed the overhanging picture from the main advert, then added faux blue borders to appear like the original design.

    Naughty, naughty Seibertron.com!

    That Bumblebee looks quite awful.
    what is it with recent Movie Bees just being the absolute worst?

    Ok, reported it, I hope I did it correctly ^^U

    I checked out the Seibertron.com news report: LOL @ "Credit(s): Toys R Us Japan" WTF

    On a completely unrelated note, that Movie Best Megatron looks like he is wearing Spain soccer selection "paella vomit" uniform

    Indeed. In fact, all TFW2005 needs to do is simply copy and paste Seibertron's test from their news story here and call it even...

    ???

    What's wrong with it? It could use more paint for sure, but most people seem to be split between this mold and Battle blades BB as the best version we got. I do have some issues with this one myself, but he's not bad.

    He's barely an improvement on the base Hasbro version that came out way back when. if Takara wants to charge extra as an anniversary edition they need to make it worth it, this aint worth it.

    Well that would only be fair enough, the text there is basically arranged from what I posted here. I have to say that sometimes TFW2005's news handling make your head scratch, like when they posted completely invented bios for Megaempress and the Megatronia girls or the "possibly confirmed" toys from some card game artwork. Some items remain unedited for quite a long while.

    The reason I chose to post here, instead of Seibertron is that Seibertron doesn't really slow users to attach images. They are a bit low-tech and expect people to upload images to a hosting site, then use img tags and copy and paste the url. However, on smartphones that can be really tricky and tiresome. This site, however, even with its myriad of smartphone-hostile bugs, is still easier to post news at.
