Nice figure....looks almost like Skywarp in bot mode, minus the head, mostly due to the wings and lilac purple. XD

It's a shame if it doesn't get a US release, I'm glad I preordered. I would've got Breakdown too if he wasn't so damn expensive.

My point was in this line pricing seems kind of arbitrary, which means Unicron is just a regular Voyager size. Theoretically.


At Robotkingdom, Deluxe AMs are $23.90 and most Voyager AMs are $46.90! Breakdown and Darkness Megs, however, are $54.90. Gaia Unicron, interestingly, is $51.90 for preorder.

First, daimchoc has found a video review by YouTube member doubble80. Check out the embeds below.





Second, Sabrblade brings us some potentially unfortunate news by way of fellow fansite [url]the Allspark[/url]. It appears Jet Vehicon may be joining Breakdown and Gaia Unicron as Takara exclusives.

Sabrblade wrote:Remember when we found out that the Transformers: Prime Voyager Breakdown and Voyager Gaia Unicron would be TakaraTomy exclusive figures? Well it looks as though the Deluxe Jet Vehicon figure might be joining their ranks. The Jet Vehicon figure was recently released in Japan, and Allspark.com user Powered Convoy has both acquired one and taken a photo of the figure's copyright information. Much like the Breakdown figure, the Jet Vehicon figure only contains copyright info from Tomy, rather than from both Tomy and Hasbro like the other figures shared between the two.

For comparison, here's Prime Voyager Breakdown's copyright information (also taken by Powered Convoy), which also lacks info from Hasbro.

Lol this. Is nuts this is my review sadly I forgot to flip the wings up and made an update video

Yes. I just checked my Bulkhead and it says
(C)2011 Hasbro
(C) Tomy


Honestly, I was expecting this one to be Japan exclusive, so I preordered. Only one, though, I'll probably get one or two more down the road. Sadly, this means I'll be getting this guy before I see ANY regular Vehicons, as I still have had no luck with that. I need that wave 4 revision assortment to hit fast.

I don't get it either. What's so hard about this?
Phase one: design toys
Phase two: release toys
Phase three: profit

Phase one is the hard part, why stop there? They must be following the Underpants Gnomes business model.

I found a seller on ebay that is selling Jet Vehicon for only 35.99 with free shipping. A quick search will lead you to a decent deal!

Yea he did. I think i love and hate whenever he does that, cause he always hints at spoilers he knows and i love to hear spoilers, but he never says the full spoiler. Which is considerate for those who don't want to hear it of course, but i'm always like raaaarrsh :sad: :BOOM:

That's not really any better than anywhere else. It'd be great if I had a big order to make with them. Otherwise single orders with them are never really cost effective.

Although I can't find my figure to confirm but I believe Masterpiece Rodimus Prime had only a Takara stamp on it and when Hasbro released it they just put a paint stamp under the Takara one.

this whole thing is kind of comical

when the vocal minority have been moaning that Jet Vehicon is just a vehicon with wings on 'its an easy pass...' 'thats just lazy...' etc etc, soon as it looks like its takara only 'its a crime! we demand this toy! youre wasting money not selling it to us! now i cant find it anywhere...'etc. the second people think theyre not going to get it they instantly must have it. we're an odd bunch and i doubt theres a world shortage, good hunting guys

i preordered mine 3 months ago. came today, love it, plan on hunting down a second. i know a lot of you guys love to hunt things down at your local store but seriously, preorders!

and as for army building... collectors do that, children really dont, thats not justification for hasbro to release it

I always check what the totals are on BBTS tfsource and RK and now ehobbybase and RK and ehobbybase are always about $5 cheaper and I get my figures in hand before BBTS and tfsource even have theirs in stock. My jet vehicon shipped on Thursday and I got it on Monday from hong kong and it allows me to get my reviews up first even know I still don't do numbers like peaugh and obtibotimus but maybe one day lol
