I'll take that Protoform OP, Dispensor, and maybe Jolt. I think that's the first Jolt I've ever liked the look of.

That Evasion Mode Prime looks way better. Still missing a few paint aps inthe torso, but other than that I really like it.
Hope it will be somewhat affordable

Oy, Google Translate mucked up some of the names. :lol:

"Cross heirs" (Crosshairs) and "Dispenser" (Dispensor), specifically.

These look quite nice, but aren't quite enough to draw me back into collecting the live action movie figures again. Though, Takara's paint apps on Evasion Mode Optimus Prime make it look VERY tempting.

Enough Primes? :lol:

Evasion Optimus Prime looks really good but the added paint apps actually make him look less G1. And he still has no faceplate, so now I'm conflicted. Three versions to choose from and none are perfect. I guess it will all come down to pricing. If I can preorder the Takara version for a good deal on one of the Japanese sites I'll go for it. If not, regular Hasbro version it is! Although if this is the only AoE figure I'm buying, a splurge might be justified.

Dispensor is pretty cool. And refreshing.

I'm liking Rock-Lord Prime too.

I want protoform OP. that deco does wonders for what has been a pretty unremarkable mold every time I've looked at it in the past. It still looks weird in alt mode because of the tapering back end, but it looks cool nonetheless. their classic/assault mode OP looks really nice too, compared to the US version. I'd still like a second smokestack and a faceplate on it, but eh, we can't get everything we want. I can't make myself dislike dispensor. I just can't. But imports are expensive T.T

Not sure about other sites but HLJ have theirs up.

Though since I did my order last night (bit over 12 hours ago) a few of them are already on order stop. HLJ really need to reassess their TF stock levels.

Oh, Dispensor. :D

The others look nice, but not enough to drag me into importing any of the figures, were I to decide to buy them. :-?
