    Why would they put new figures in a box that's meant to be mailed to influencers so they could influence people to buy stuff that's on the shelves? This is not a retail item.

    I was right, you missed my point. Which you actually made when you indicated in your second reply to me that the toys are not free if you think about it.

    This. Can't believe we haven't gotten collector-quality figures of these designs yet, but not giving up hope. Just give us a good voyager of that Optimus at least!

    I wonder if any non-American fansites got this one, as I think this is the 7th one now (one for each of the Movies and now an anniversary box).
    Either it's a jurisdiction issue, that Hasbro can't legally send them to non-American fansites, or they just don't think that they exist.
    Even though I have all of the toys in these boxes, or would buy them anyway, I'd just like to have those sorts of display boxes in my collection.

    Biggest 2 questions are 1. How do you get this? and 2. What is the cost?

    cause unless its cheaper than buying all of it separately, then what's the point.

    This looks to be one of the free gift baskets they send media outlets.

    To get it, you need established media presence. It doesn't cost anything.

    In other words, a pointless thing to discuss.

    In my experience with contests/giveaways/t like, it falls to an issue related to shipping.

    Sometimes it's customs, sometimes import taxes. Depends on the situation.

    so people's love of color schemes can now be wrong? Is there a set of color schemes I'm supposed to like while hating all others?

    That's basically Studio Series Barricade with TLK head and paint scheme. It's a shame we got Shattered Glass Prowl instead.

    I'm fine with that Prowl repaint and retool; it actually works very well for Barricade. Still, I was honestly hoping for something along the lines of this Barricade design for that Siege figure. I know that this Barricade is basically a slightly simplified and more cartoon-y version of the TLK Barricade with a new head, but I'm really hoping for a version of the character in a show or just in Generations with this design, done slightly in a more G1-esque or cartoon-esque way.
