Transformers Premium Leader Prime and Megatron to be mass released

Postby i_amtrunks » Thu Jan 10, 2008 3:38 pm

Pre-orders have appeared for the Transformers Movie Premium Series Leader Class Megatron and Optimus Prime have appeared at Entertainment Earth, confirming that both figures will get a mass release.

This follows our earlier report in the week about the Premium Series Deluxe figures also getting a mass release.

Premium Series Prime will come with a new weapon, a retractable blade, as we reported here, and a resculpted head, whilst Premium Megatron is also expected to have a resculpted head.

Bumblebee's resculpted head features battle-mode mask.

Does this mean a resculpted Prime's head will show his shiny lips and tiny teeth? :shock:

I'm not too happy about this habit of Hasbro squeezing every drop of juice out of the same mold over and over again.

Eventually, this scheme could work against Hasbro.

People will be holding back from buying the initial releases. (Which are critical for the success of a toyline.)

Please, that Megatron mold doesn't deserve to be released again. But since I didn't get him the first time.. i'll probably do it this time.

I doubt they could make them much more expensive than they allready are for the european market (prays that they arrive here too) so I'm looking forward for them.

I think so too.

I remember when I used to spend 30 bucks on single disk new release dvds like a chump.

Does Megatron have anything else going for him besides a new head and coat of paint?

Out of all the Premium figures I'll only get Prime, Ironhide, and JAzz if he's mass released. Mind you as rip-off as the Premium concept it at least they're releasing Prime and Megs at mass retail.

If I recall Jazz will be mass released, except in a three pack with Masked Bumblebee and Barricade.

Don't pass him up for $20, open that one and keep this boxed.

Well we all know that Hasbro is milking the success of the First Wave of Movie Toys. And since I doubt there will good success in the Animated line, as well as lines leading up TF2, then this Premium line is all Hasbro has to make big revenue.

This Premium stuff is a 2nd chance for me to get figures I wasn't able to get, so I guess it's good. But then again, Hasbro's lack of shipment to retail is the reason I didn't get those figures in the first place.

True true, the problem is that I'm in Australia and I'm not sure if we'll be getting the three-pack (one can hope though). I'm sure the mass release figures will be released individually over here, and I'm happy enough for that.
