    What would you expect? It's the second of two free items that come with a $5.00 magazine. :p

    Not having the huge circle sticker does do a lot for the looks, really.

    Not bad, though a bit unremarkable. This probably isn't quirky enough for me to track down like the Legion TRU Prime, though if it pops up cheaply on Mandarake down the road, it could be an impulse buy.

    I just watched this with my Japanese girlfriend (who has two sons who love TFs) and she said the video was boring.  It\'s a bit strange to have it in such a \"Daytime TV\" format, when the audience is young boys.

    5 minutes of a girl msitransforming a toy is a strange way to sell it.

    It seems to depict the girl as "I don't understand boys' toys; I'm just a girl, tee hee!", which I find repulsive. In Japan, this would be considered "fine", but it puzzles me why TV Magazine considered it so to sell this product to young Japanese boys, who would rather see young boys zooming it around the table, like every other advert for little boys in Japan.

    That's not too bad. I may go grab the book for my nephew since he keeps telling me he needs an RID Prime. I'm sure he'd get a kick out of all the other stuff in TV Magazine as well.

    Try Amazon Japan. They might ship to the UK, and/or USA.
