The bigger question: why no light-tummies for Optimus and Starscream?

And 7th photo below the catalog page: Megatron's Master Plan...goes awry.

Megatron's cannon is hilariously tiny.

These Kreons are huge! Normally they're roughly half a typical Legends-class figure's height (compare Megatron to Soundwave below):

While these are the same height as a Legends-class figure!

They should totally use these Jumbo-Kreons for big bots like Omega Supreme. Perhaps without the weird gimmicks.

Not surprised on account that unless you have been to Japan, or managed to stumble upon one outside of Japan. Because in Japan, they are pretty much everywhere. I mean, in the portion of Ikebukuro that I was staying at, I think I had stumbled upon two within a mile radius.

What Family Mart is, by the way, is one of three biggest chain of convenience stores. The other two are 7-11 and Lawson. It is also the smallest of the three in terms of numbers, when it comes to Japan. And honestly, it is my second favorite - Behind Lawson, as Lawson tends to have better hot food.

Beyond that, it is one of those places to visit when you have cash and need something fast. And I think that it is also the only store that accepts international debit/credit cards. So there is that, and the fact I wish they sold t-shirts as I am a fan of their logo. 8)

Lawson's little chicken nugget things where the package looks like a chicken's head are the best.

Oh Primus yes! During my first visit to Kyoto (in hopes of finding Kyoto Animation), I got lost and ended up getting those at a Lawsons. Game over, man! They were just that good. =P~

Yep, the food in Japanese supermarket were pretty awesome. Though, I went to many 7-11, Lawsons, and Familymarts in Japan a few times, and I have NEVER seen anyone selling anything Transformer related.

The closest I got was a few Gundam MG kits, and Zoids...

I seriously cannot remember if FamilyMart had any remnants for their Transformers Animated promotion. I think I had spotted some items at a store in Akihabara, but they were the cellphone straps if I did. And if they had anything better, I was too distracted by the 2008 MOSC Henkei! Henkei! Transformers C-05 Hot Rodimus that they had for 4980 yen... That I almost bought. That, and a MISB Wonderfest CMS Dai Atlas. :WHISTLE:

Then again, those two weeks had me see very little Transformers for sale. That, and I might have overlooked any Transformers goodies. :BOOM:

Transformers meet Avatar :lol:

I like these, and while the stylus would be helpful for drawings, I don't like things blocking my headphone port, but hey, who cares!
