Because Hasbro's main focus in kids who destroy figures. Takara's main focus is adults who collect them. So we get Kreo. :BANG_HEAD:

It wouldn't necessarily need to be complicated, repaint a mini-con to go with the PCC or a Mech Tech Weapon. It just seems a bit of a missed opportunity.

I never understand all this crying foul. There are online stores and fellow members on the site that are capable in helping others out. Plus it's specifically meant for a toy released in Takara territory.

There are Blades in ROTF Voyager Prime and ROTF Leader Prime. Also... Hasbro's DOTM Voyager Prime and Ultimate Prime are awful to begin with, not even add-ons could save them.

The sword is personally not my thing... if it was a mini-con i'd bite, but the swords are just add-ons that look like they don't even flush with transformation into vehicle mode... and like I said prior, the ROTF versions of Prime are much better.

Re: Takara Campaign Battle Blades for Striker Optimus Prime (1302406)

3000 yen is roughly $40.

I'm getting a bit tired of all the ROTF Leader Prime milking. We have that awesome new Stealth Force leader Prime version. The Wing thing Prime. All cost an arm and a leg.

You have Ultimate Prime in the US, which doesn't fit in any scale. Still no Leader Megatron / Shockwave. I hoped we would get voyager Crankcase and the other one that transforms into an animal.

Instead I see cyberverse, and a Kreo line???

Hasbro should release a ROTF Prime with the Stealth Force upgrade set + Wings + Buster cannon and these 2 blades all in one set for a normal price!
That's what they should do!

Take into consideration the promo entitles you to get the blade for FREE, when you purchase $40 bucks of DOTM toys. Which is quite worth it, getting a free blade with 2 voyagers ETC.

Well, I just pre-ordered a set for my Jetwing Optimus.

I'm trying to order either a Jetwing or a pre-order of the Striker so I can also get the battle blades but I can't seem to do so and I don't have a means to adjust japanese characters to english. I must be doing something wrong. Any suggestions? I'm ready to purchase one of these bad boys but hitting a wall on how to do so where I can read the site. I've tried translators but they don't adjust the graphics and those sites are nearly all graphic. I only get a few headings and I can't do a search and get any results I can understand :( Any suggestions for this language confused transformers fan?? Thanks in advance!
