Gold Metal R.A. and Silver Metal Balo? We already have tons of R.A. varieties, coupled with a barely changed Deluxe Prime... Pass. The Arms Micron Skywarp repaint on the other hand...
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)

Preparing to move to the US!

Are those Decepticon symbols on Orion Pax? I was hoping for a new head without the faceplate. If having Con symbols is the only difference between him and Prime than I'm perfectly happy with just throwing some Con stickers on my PRiD Prime and calling it Orion Pax. At least that way I have an excuse to never use that stupid gun of his.

Id have loved it if Orion had no faceplate and a slightly purplish hue that he had in one scene in "Orion Pax : Part One". The thundercracker repaint is really doing it for me :D , but still too many repaints really :BANG_HEAD: .
I really hope they eventually make figures like a voyager insecticon (It doesnt even have to be hardshell, although that would rock :APPLAUSE: ) and a deluxe Smokescreen. Im really liking the way smokescreen looks in the show, both vehicle and robot and it would translate so nicely to a figure :BOWDOWN: .

Both look real nice, but I don't get the inclusion of R.A. instead of O.P. with Orion Pax.

You know, I'm not actually sure Prime counts as a repaint. Certainly not anymore than if I Rprolabled my Voyager Sentinel Prime and caleld him Pyro. And Repro has more than 2 stickers...

His blue is darker shade, at least.

Good thing I'm only interested in Thundercracker. Orion Pax is at Joshin and Bic Camera. There's no Bic in my part of the country, and my Joshin gets TFs months late. Thundercracker's at Yamada Denki, though, and they've been helping me spend too much money on Arms Micron for months. Excited for "late" October now!

My girlfriend took a look at the advertisement and it seems that Thundercracker is an exclusive to Edion, Yamada Denki and Yosobashi camera.

Not sure if I'll try to have her get it for me or just wait & see if one of the online stores puts him up. :-?

BBTS has them up for preorder here.

A bit pricey, but I preordered Thundercracker. I gotta have him to go with Skywarp and Starscream :).

edit: from the BBTS product pages for these:
Please Note - The $64.99 Price is a placeholder and is subject to change - most likely lower. Preorders are not guaranteed, but our exclusive buyers are fairly reliable.

Just FYI, if you live in Japan (or know somebody there) both are up for pre-order from the two camera shops. I couldn't find either on the sites for the other stores that are supposed to have them though.

This is pretty much why I do not own any versions of Optimus Prime/Convoy. You get too many variations and it only comes down to who wants a complete set or just certain versions. So I'll continue to pass on him, variation and all.

As for the Seeker... He is shiny, but I cannot see myself start to collect Seekers at this point in my collection. So he is a pass, but I will not rule it out yet.

Thanks for the link. I preordered Thundercracker to save myself the trip later. No more worrying that he won't be on the shelf yet at Yamada Denki the day I can go.
