I don't understand the distribution of the Prime line at all. I've never seen any of the PRiD figures other then at some Walmarts and now the stopped putting them out because of the Cybertron line filling the racks. I already have all of these figures because hasbro led us to believe the states weren't getting them, especially a terrorcon CJ, I thought that was a Takara exclusive. I hate Hasbro, release the figures on a normal schedule.

The Dark Energon figures from BBTS will probably be that much, but I'm sure the TRU FE figs will be normal TRU prices.

I would get that DE Wheeljack in a heartbeat if someone can give me help me with covering up his 2 Autobot symbols so I can tack on some 'con symbols and make him Slicer. :grin: :grin:
Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.

Started collecting TF prime a little late, but I am only missing a few for my collection. I am glad I haven't opened anything yet after reading this lovely tidbit. I've got RID Optimus and Bulkhead, so I may take them back to Target in order to get the FE ones. They are really the only RID I have that I want to take back. Am desparately wanting RID Vehicon, but may settle for FE. So, November is roughly when FE will hit TRU?

I think it means the Autobots have equipped themselves to deal with Dark energon, as in "defending" against it

Looking forward to the Dark Energon Voyagers. I think the others look very nice too. I simply don't have a reason or a place for them.

First Editions I'm good on. If I can find a Terrorcon CJ I might pick him up for shits and giggles.

I actually missed out on that Bumblebee, believe it or not. And now I'm sad they're not going to release him (at least make him short-packed :roll: )

Maybe they (Has/Tak) modified the original FE's head mold to make it 'zombified' so now the original version doesn't exist any more?

It is odd that they're releasing that one at retail though, since it was an SDCC exclusive and all. Maybe it will only have the head but not the dark energon 'damage' etc. on the body (which would be boooring in my opinion).

And it looks like the body does have the dark energon damage from what I can tell from the pic posted. Ya, definitely would be boring without the body damage. It'd be cool to add some of your own damage to the figure like melted plastic pieces here and there.

I want one just because I didn't get the SDCC version (got the Takara one though, but he stays in glorious clear purple car mode :P). I have the Takara FE version as well as the Hasbro FE version (different shades of red, who knew?), so I don't need another one of that, but I can certainly understand why those who missed the boat on the original FE run would want that instead of ZombieJumper. Still, it works out well for me if he's the same as the one that SDCC got.
