Yep, it was a Japan only Takara release.

It was Japan-only and released last year. We got the Target exclusive Soundwave and tape set instead. >:oP

Bah! Bah, I say! I thought we were supposed to be getting everything Japan was getting now that they were blurring the lines between that whole 'Hasbro vs. Takara' stuff.

Having gotten Sige Magnis last night from BBTS, I am really excited about the potential of that mold for Prime. But for me, I hope the armor is more Car Robots inspired, I think the Engineering of Siege Magnus would be more complimentary to that style.

Its really not. The only similarity is that thry are working from the same source material. Siege Prime is amazing and well worth picking up if you can. This is the Prime I have been waiting for.

There were 17 last year and I wasn't even thorough. Could have been more.


Fair enough, but how many of them did we know about in January of last year?

No no no, it's only the elimination of regional variants. Either company is still free to do whatever when it comes to packaging, release order (or not release it at all), and above all, exclusives. You'll note that the Studio Series exclusives were previously unavailable in Japan until the announcement of SS-EX Retro Garage Set, and that Cyberverse and the rest of the Bumblebee movie line... well, are just plain missing there.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Looking for:
- TR Furos and Crashbash (just heads)
- PotP Punch head
- CW Dead End, Brawl and Swindle, among others
- Spare PotP Volcanicus hands

>:oP Oh, please. OP seems to have always gotten this many toys.

You know of another year where we had 10 different Prime toys scheduled for release?
There were 17 last year and I wasn't even thorough. Could have been more.

Woah, 17 different Optinus Primes?! Why does it seem like this year is crazier?

Edit: i know why, its because the majority of 2018 Oprimus toys were relegated to lines specifically ained at kids and not fans like Bumblebee and Cyberverse while this year we are seeing several Optimus toys in lines older fans care more for like Studio Series.
That's probably a big part of it. The Takara Movie the Best series pads the 2018 "collector Prime" count out though, as do the MP-10 recolors in 7-11 Convoy and MP-10G.

Lots of Primes is ok though. New collectors having a shot at cool Optimus toys can't be a bad thing!

Oh not bad at all, I just figured with all these new different Optimus toys coming out (especially in within the same line) it might be worth making a quick list to let people know what's up.
And yeah, I wasnt thinking about all those redecos last year (like Gold Optimus). Not that they dont count, but since all these 2019 primes are new molds (more or less), that was my basis for comparing to 2018.

Basically, last year we had 1 Prime in Studio Series, this year we have 3. We had 1 Optimus in POTP, Siege gives us 2, plus a fully new MP mold and that crazy crossover stuff. 2019 felt a little more special for Optimus than previous years.

Its not that we are getting everything Japan is getting, its that now what we are both getting is the same. Important difference. It means if there is a toy coming out for Takara that is also coming out for Hasbro, they will be identical. That's why their Grotusque was the same as ours, so was their Throne of the Primes, and thats why MP Optimus Ver 3 will be speaking Japanese nomater who you buy him from.

Sorry, couldn't help myself Image

I was hoping Hasbro was going to release Legendary Prime in the states as well. He's still a good price at Amazon JP, ¥4,906 before adding to the cart and shipping, but I'm glad I waited as we are getting some mighty tasty Primes this year. Siege Prime is great, and I can't wait to get my filthy mitts on the SS Bee Prime.

I'd still jump Legendary's bones if the price was right

Being funny but do these two count? Happened to find them today in a mall near where i live. Obviously, they are of the KO variety but interesting. For the heck of it, I bought the “Deformation 5 Robot”.. Hard to tell or believe but the production does state April 2019 on the box. Who knows, but again just being alittle humorous.
