    I ended up preordering both, My SS-18 BB's neck broke when I let a co worker touch it for 5 seconds lol, and this is cheaper than buying a sealed replacement on ebay. And that prime just looks great.

    I was just at TFSource and Pulse and did not see them there. But saw them on BBTS.

    If they release Dinobot with a premium finish with all paint details and a silver dildo, I mean sword, I'd buy it again. I'm happy with my sharpie detailing though.

    When you're interested in a niche article, but are still surprised how much it costs

    Unfortunately it doesn't look like Dinobot is part of the lineup.

    If that's Premium, then why are his legs only painted from the front?

    My take on premium is:
    - black screws
    - a bit of diecast (this negates the need for paint)

    Toys now are just too floppy *grumble grumble*

    Just ordered them at BBTS, thanks.

    I guess I will cancel my Amazon Japan preorders.

    If those two are getting imported, then that means the same applies for the 07 Optimus and Jetfire that's coming later. Yessssss.

    (And also 07 Megatron. Extra yesssss.)

    There are only going to be six. And I'm sorry to say, but ratchet doesn't seem to be one of em.

    It's an old image of Siege Prime and Nova Storm with the tint altered to reflect Prime's repaint

    To show the silver paint off from that angle I would imagine. Not as cool to see just black plastic

    Technically I don't think the cel shaded deco would qualify as a "clean" deco

    I mean I guess but it's hard to call that one littered in battle damage too.
