Nitpick and pet peeve: did you mean that both figures TOGETHER will cost 2000 yen, or that EACH figure will cost 2000 yen?

It says final colors will vary. I'm pretty sure those are just the American releases given the lack of chrome, among other things.

The pics they used are the general release US figures. They have also stated that the final products will differ from the images used, which means we haven't seen the actual Japanese versions as yet.

They have to be chromed too! :P

Sure I have, and that guy was all types of color.

Again, I love this figure, he's one of my favorites from the line, but especialy when picyured next to his toon version, I'm just saying some gray would be nice.

Also, Hot Rod should come with the fish and a button that sayes "It's a whooper".

Not for anything, in my last apartment, I had him with a little glass fish and toy pole. I'm mad that I lost those props.

The reissue, yes, but the original toy had no white on it...& hopefully this guy will be G1 show accurate & be primarily a dark gray & purple.

Transformers Henkei? Sounds worse than Kiss Play. They both look the same. I was hoping Astrotrain would be purple this time around.

Meh, they look exactly the same as the ones that I have in my room. Nothing special about them, but I still feel those racing stripes on Astrotrain are hideous.
