    @ Edgewise - yes, I'm also firstpredacon on the Allspark forums. The Sons of Cybertron set is not going to be mass released in the Philippines. I believe the distributor was able to obtain 3 pieces for the raffle. Similarly, Alternity Ultramagnus is not a mass release item either and only 3 will be raffled off.

    I do suspect that Alternity Ultramagnus might be released locally in Singapore. We have had instances wherein Japan store exclusives come out in Takashimaya here (e.g. Henkei Dark Skyfire).

    Fair enough. I edited my original post to reflect this. I just was baffled by all the Animated confusion in the beginning of this thread.

    Oh, thankgod..for a moment I thought this was coming at the cost of the Animated set. They're both 'crystal', and this set is definitely all kinds of cool, but I'd rather have the Animated one (which I preordered).

    Still very cool set, mind you!

    If it said Hasbro at the top, maybe, but with TakaraTomy at the top - never. :)

    True, of course. I suppose we don't want anyone taking that seriously!

    Come on guys, a lot of you really must READ before you start posting
    it clearly says A FEW PRIZES WILL BE RAFFLED OFF. With that said I
    interpreted that to mean you can not buy or order this set but if your
    lucky you can maybe WIN the set Raffle/Lucky Draw style and yes it is
    entirely different set from the animated crystal 2 pack (prime & Rodimus)
    which can be purchased mass retail (asian market)....Just my 2 cents :D

    Did you read where that refers to Alternity UM in the same context? I don't know, but I think, there will be some other larger release of the 2-pack. The 'prize/raffle' deal doesn't sound like a Takara Lucky Draw deal where the items are specially made and specifically limited to that. It sounds more like the event organizers have gotten their hands on a few items from some other limited(but larger) release and will raffle them off.

    just because they mention alternity magnus doesnt mean that this set cant be like some grand prize were it is very limited.

    Absolutely. And I say that "I don't know, but I think...", I'm not stating anything as confirmed fact.

    However, I don't see anything to indicate it is some very limited grand prize either.

    If this is the grand prize of the 2010 campaign in Japan then Rodimus will miss his chance for the MP treatment. :D

    So it looks like the Crystal Animated 2 pack is still happening, good. I want that. I'd also want this, but shyeah, I'm not in the Philippines.

    I find it hard to believe that the Philippines is getting such an exclusive item. That doesn't seem like the best way to promote the 2010 idea if you ask me. Why not an event in Japan? Honestly, that is why I think this will be available outside of this event.

    If this 2-pack is limited to only a few for the event, I will be shocked beyond belief (and sad).

    Is this hot rod the same as Classics Hot Rod Mold that will fit the Fansproject's release?

    Okay, I think TFclub has this set for sale here, but I don't read that language, so how do you buy it and how much is it US$...?
