Does anyone know if these will be generally available, say from Amazon.jp, or is it exclusive to that vendor?

Is exclusive to Million Publisher, just like last time, the Gentei Ghost Starscream, Gentei Clear Mirage etc....

So is exclusive to the publishing company, not really to any store....

If anyone knows japanese and fancies getting me one of these then they're welcome to have the second one for 4,300 yen! And if anyone is only interested in the figure and not the book then that's ideal for me...

Need to see the deco before I jump in... a formality maybe, but still, I want to see how AWESOME it is.

Fair point, I'm just going on:
a)how much I loved the deco on the EZ figure
b)how nice the Elite Guard Prowl was

Does anyone know if it is possible for a US based customer to order the encyclopedia and subsequenlty be able to order the figure? Or do you have to live in Japan to be eligible?

You usually have to live in Japan in order to do this, similar to US mail away exclusives.

I think it might become available through BBTS, TFSource, eBay, etc. like the other Million Publishing exclusives Ghost Starscream and Electro Disrupter Mirage.

I'm interested in the figure, and less interested in the book.

I'd order ... but I don't know japanese either :(

There has to be a middleman option somewhere. I'm sure some of our Japanese fandomites would be willing to help their fellow fans.

Someone? Anyone?

I'm sure this will be the case ... just $$$$ especially for an Optimus figure.

Especially Wing Blade with Elite Guard slapped all over it.

I can't wait to see the insane prices for that one.

Well if Animated Black Convoy was on par with the price of MP Rodimus on BBTS, I don't even want to know what's going to be the price of this guy.

I've also found the colors of Legends Elite Guard Optimus Prime, which will likely be the same as the one we are going to get here. It's the one second from the left.
