If they made him comparable to Sentinel it could turn out alright. Obviously not in scale with Prime, but still, maybe...

I'm aware of that, but I specifically asked if it was the G1 head or the original. I was told it's the original.

Weird... If it turns out the to be the blue original, then it shouldn't be "Movie Trilogy" [-(

Well, can't say I care too much about the Asian only release. I have FE Cliff and Arcee and I have no desire to have Que if it's the original head. I'm waiting for PRID Vehicon since I like the design better.

Glad they're doing something though so the prices get knocked down for those who want them. Shame they won't bring them off the Asian continent :/ Importing fee's can be a doozy. Makes it an added hassle for those who want them, but at least the supply and opportunity will be increased.

Finally, another chance to get Que!
And it better be the blue one, because Movie Accuracy > G1 Homage.

If they're releasing Que in Asian markets this could be a sign? Maybe we can expect Deluxe Soundwave, and maybe even (naked) Leadfoot in the near future?

Hope so, those have gotten pretty expensive on the secondary market.

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.

If you do get extra ques I will buy one from you in a heart beat he is the only dotm figure I don't own and I can't see spending $80 on a horrible version of wheel jack but if they hange his head and deco that would be awsome

I got a naked leadfoot for $38 and added the reprolabels kit and it looks amazing

It's pretty silly that people are bitching about this. The Asian market deserves these as much as anywhere else, I'm just glad that someone like me will get a second chance to own some of these. Even if you have to import them, it really shouldn't cost much more than what a deluxe will be this fall.

Just think about it like this, for a small premium, much smaller than what these cost now, you can get the FE figure you want and dodge worrying over if Hasbro will ever get these out or not. It's much better than being that much of a cheapskate and refusing to buy anything you can't find at Wal-Mart.

Please let them re-release Bulkhead... I don't want to have to resort to the PRID one. D: It's not terrible, it's just nowhere near as nice.

And THERE is that big fat middle finger from Hasbro to the U.S. and Europe that I alluded to in another post and got heckled for.

I have nothing more to say on this. :BANG_HEAD:

Haha, I honestly think it's pretty bad after seeing it in person. Optimus' PRID figure isn't that bad, but that backpack and those transparent parts...

I honestly like the PRID Prime mold, but yeah the translucent bits are a bit meh. And the gun looks much better without the led part sticking off of it. Plus, the thing can mount on his shoulder! Points for that alone. :)
PRID SS is basically on par with FE SS. I mean, scale-wise FE is better. But the overall aesthetic is about even; both molds have their pros and cons.
FE Bulkhead is nothing but awful though.

8X Que? I now declare Que as the new shelfwarmer! :lol: Apparently I've been seeing the DOTM Trilogy prime alot. Hopefully Que does become that overstocked, that he's so common and I can wait for the next 30% off sale. :grin:

FE Bulkhead is nothing but awful though.

PRID prime is nowhere near better with his floppy legs and horrible back kibble. His abs have no color he's missing do much red his shoulders have parts of the bumper on it and his gun is crap no matter if the battery pack is on it or not. And as far as PRID SS being on par with FE SS not even close PRID SS waist dose not snap it it just slightly plugs in and any movement and it pops right out the ankle kibble is bad in jet mode there is a big hinge on the nose cone that ruins the shape of the front of the jet. The feet stick out the back of the plane and I'm not saying they are bad figures but they are nowhere near as good and I have them all in hand not just looking at pictures or reviews because a lot of high end reviewers that people like to watch get sponsored by toy sites to sell the product and won't make the out for what it really is crap

First off, punctuation and proper spacing are both quite important. >:oP
Second, I don't mean to imply that PRiD Prime is better, it's just not bad. I wish I had FE Prime, but that's just not going to happen unfortunately.
As for SS, my opinion stands. I do think the aesthetic of the FE is *slightly* better, but from a mechanical standpoint, they both have issues in both modes.
