It appears the Asian countries want classics, not stupid TF Prime figures. I believe "Asian Exclusives" are for countries other than Japan (They have Takara/United)

Oh no... I've somehow awakened to find I am an asian country! It's like Kafka's The Metamorphosis only different.

Seems like 80% of the toys I bought this year are some sort of retool/repaint. Cliffjumper alone had like 9 incarnations. I'm done.

You thinking of the Classics/Asia GDO/Prime/Zombie spectrum of Cliffjumpers? Or did I miss something :D

Then there is the 3rd party Cliffjumper head can of worms. :-?

Indeed. Right now I have Henkei Starscream, Classics Skywarp and Generations Thundercracker as my main three. It would be nice to have a unified set of 3

the set looks nice, but i cant afford to plunge into another set of seekers when i have Universe Starscream, Classics Skywarp, and Generations Thundercracker. I do prefer the different wing designs of the 3 I have. It gives them a little more character

Man, I have Henkei Starscream, Henkei Skywarp (after forever using the Classics one, finally grabbed a Henkei a while back, those cost a bit these days :() and Generations Thundercracker (not sure if this new one will top him or not, I love that dark blue on the Generations version).

I've got Universe Classics 2.0 Starscream, but after painting the orange parts red (like they should be, Damn you Hasbro!!! :P), I put him on my Beast Wars shelf. He stands just behind Waspinator (Possession ;)).

Skywarps non painted fists connected to his metallic painted wrists look horrible. Im glad I got the Henkei 3, even though they cost me $250. Back then they were gold before Generations and CHMS. Lets see how they do the coneheads. The only one Henkei got right was Ramjet.

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
So, when can we expect the older versions to hit EBay once the boxset is released? >:oP
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

Preordered, just as a placeholder. A lot of time between now and January, but if the price doesn't drop, then my preorder will ;).

TFSource has them for $130 which seems a better price for the set. I'm guessing today or tomorrow BBTS will bring their listing in line.

Got all six seekers already. Way too spicy for me, to boot.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

That is a crazy price for 3 deluxe figures. I will just get skywarp from ebay. I paid less than that for 3 mp thundercrackers during TRU's buy 2 get 1 free sale a couple weeks ago.

I have the Hasbro seekers already. I am good.

$170 is too much money for three deluxe figures. That is just a silly number.

after working out the price in British Pounds, from the pre-order on TFSource, I don't actually think the price is all that bad. Well, at least when compared to ebay prices for some of the individual bots.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.
