Just like the recent trends in the movie business where big budget films are released in Asia first (partly to offset piracy..............like they'll ever succeed), we have recent re-issues like MP-Grimlock, henkei Seekers,Ultra Magnus, 6-shot and the butt ugly Superlink Bruticus etc (that became most wanted because of Fans Project) among others (Asian edition they are called iirc).
It is (sort of) a blessing that we have an opportunity to purchase those figs which we missed (prices are still pricey though not as pricey as the individual figs for the sets). But the ones being released are the extra paint apps versions (henkei etc with some slight changes from the originals)over the domestic USA stuff. This means that Hasbro or Tomy has factored in the "buying" power of those guys across the Pacific over the cheap, kid driven purchasing power of former.
Is there a possibility that given the untapped potential of the land of KOs,TF figures might be released there first? And that the TF franchise is burning hot over there, figure shortages or releases prioritization might put the rest of us in the back burner?
