This is probably the news of the year, no exaggeration. The Transformers Prime toyline is a gold standard for a TV show line offering a mix of new designs with established characters and giving them mostly good screen accurate toys with a satisfying complexity. There were 2 key toys missing from the US toyline though, Breakdown and the Jet vehicon. Both were only offered in Japan and that Breakdown figure has now achieved grail status for several collectors. Well Hasbro will be releasing both in their new 10th anniversary set. We know this thanks to images that surfaced on Cybertron Philippines. So here's the easier question, who is not getting it?
The only negative is that this is not a Hasbronified version of those toys, but a rerelease of the Japanese version, meaning it will have a purposeful lack of paint and added 5mm ports, both of which were standards in the Arms Micron line they come from.

Sweet, mainly wanting it for the flying vehicon though it will still be a crazy expensive way of getting an army of them.

Yup, Ima need dat. Can’t wait for preorders to show up! I’m curious if this will be a one-off or if they’ll do more similar sets. :-?

I'd like to see a new voyager or even leader Bulkhead and a new Arcee with removable arm blades. I think a new Knockout would be awesome to go with Breakdown.

If the price is right, may just give in and complete the decepticons.

Also just realized BBTS has a pre-order for FE Shining Prime. May just break down and get it.

Will this be a Takara Tomy Mail exclusive, or a general release?

I'll try to preorder when available for sure. And if no stickers are included, Toyhax will come to the rescue.

Those molds are cheese by now.

Galvatron's mold was already a goner as far back as 2005.

There's not a speck of Japanese anywhere on the packaging. That's Hasbro's logo and legal print.

Plus, it wouldn't make sense for this to be a Takara release when the whole point of it is to give Hasbro markets another chance at two molds that only Takara had released before.

Let's hope this will not be a PULSE exclusive with their 3 zillions dollars of shipping.

Don't know why everyone is so excited about this. It's Hasbro. It will be an exclusive that the scalpers will get to first.

I wasn't actually expecting any of them. I have most of them anyway. It was just a thought more than anything.

I'd much rather a new mold of Galvatron. The original is trash but somehow, in a good way.

BotCon releases by Fun Pub are not the same thing as mass market releases by Hasbro themselves.
