Upcoming Transformers Prime "First Edition" and Movie All Star Asian Releases

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
We have received information that some of the highly sought after Transformers Prime "First Edition" and Movie All Star figures will be seeing a release in the near future. The catch is these will be at a higher price point and only released in the Asian market. The Movie Trilogy case consists of all Ques, and the "First Edition" case will feature Arcee, Cliffjumper, and Vehicon.

1) Movie Trilogy - solid Que

2) First Edition
  • Arcee x 2
  • Cluffjumper x3
  • Vehicon x 3

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
It's the Que with the G1 Wheeljack-styled head if I may add. And for Pete's sake, why Asia-only?!

"If you try to please everyone, nobody will like it" - a very wise guy.

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)

Hasbro probably saw that que and Vehicon were going for $90 a piece at Cybertron Con. :lol:

But with RID Vehicon comming, I'm only actually intrested in Que and maybe a few vehicons. I own Arcee already, and RID Cliffy works for me. ;)

Edit: Higher price point you say? *facepalm* It's already $22 A deluxe here, how much more must it get.

So Hasbro's answer to the cry for the First Edition toys that didn't make it to the states... is to continue selling them in Asia?

Well, at least it gives us another shot. Maybe I'll be able to get on board with Vehicon this time around.

Hmm I might have another chance to pick up FE Arcee :D. Guess I'll decide once it's released in retail.

Just keep in mind you would be importing these, if you live outside of Asia that is. Still nice to have another bite at the apple for those who missed out. If Que has the G1 head and deco I'll definitely import him.

Given he was four per case of eight first time around, I think it's a great desicion by Hasbro, not including Bee.

Maybe they're finally listening?

I'm in South Korea and I love this news. I wasn't satisfied with RiD cliffjumper and haven't got my Arcee or Vehicon yet (they are on their way right now). Getting the FE will be awesome. If I can stock up on Que's I will let you guys know and won't be a hideous scalper. FYI, the TFP Bumblebee/Starscream two pack is out here in force if anyone missed out on it.

Hasbro pretty much said as much that it wasn't happening. Same with Shockwave.

Positive note: vehicon is getting a Hasbro release and could be cheaper on eBay

Negative note: etheir way this goes down we Americans will still be dropping a lot of money for the toys

So if you dont have the FE figures I don't see their price getting lowered anytime soon

This could be good news, we shall see what the prices end up being. I really want an FE Arcee and kicked myself for missing out.

Y'know up until today I still wish they would make Leader DOTM Megatron x_x...Such a dumb move not to make him. Michael Bay finally give them a decent Earth-based alt mode and they refuse to make one when the past 2 is based on crappy-half assed cybertronian alt mode -_-...

Sighh...I guess we can always hope for Leader Prime Megs. Seriously if they skip that too...It's clear that Hasbro's lead designer hate Megatron.

If this is correct, the good news is that more of these figures flooding the market should keep the scalping prices down, or at least the rest of the world can order online for slightly inflated prices.

I am still holding out hope that these releases aren't limited to the Asian market and can be had by North America retail. The DOTM Que cases, however... just doesn't sound right.

Give he would need a trailer I guess they don't think they can make a leader that would be the jright size.
