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.

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.


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

Actually it's the original head, though there was mention of the G1 head version later this year.....................

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.

Did a little more digging the assortment is actually called "Movie All Star", so maybe their different? None the less the actual assortment info is still the same, solid packed with original Ques.

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.

Hopefully Screamer and the Voyagers will get a release. I'd rather pay import prices than what they go for on eBay...

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.
