Yesterday, Seibertron.com's own resident HMW guru Mkall let us know that BBTS.com had the new US Universe Ultra Figures available for pre-order. Today he does it again, this time, the Japanese versions of the same Universe 2.0 figures have hit the pre-order list.


Onslaught


Powerglide


and Silverbolt


These Japanese Universe 2.0 figures sport a more "G1 accurate" color scheme and are available for pre-order at a $54.99 USD pricepoint. Click on their respective names to view each pre-order page.

Yeah. Mkall's email beat you, but since you're doing such a great job at giving us great info, you'll get the nod to boot. I'll link your forum into the news post. Thanks.

Well the price tag on these is what the Hasbro versions will work out at at UK retail, so that's not so bad. I might put in a preorder for Powerglide in a few days, as he'll probably be the most in demand when these come out, the other two I want over the Hasbro versions but I think I can stand to chase once they're out and see if I can get a better price on them. Might just see what sort of price they come to when a few more sites have their preorders up and make a final decision then. My preorder list is getting pretty pricey at the moment, and that's before anybody's listed the ehobby clear Convoy or the (presumed) Wonderfest Nemesis. And I'll be shelling out on Nightbeat and two sets of Seacons before long as well. We really are being spoiled this year.

Onslaught, to me, is negligible difference between the two.
Silverbolt depends on chrome issues, I need better pictures of the Takara version.
Powerglide I want, but I'm too broke atm.

Thanks all, I've been waiting for this!

I'm all pre-ordered up on PG.

I'm OK with the US releases for the other 2.

For the cost conscious fantofan has a lower price, but I use BBTS' pile 'o loot, so considering the shipping, it all works out about the same.

I am really psyched that some of the combiner team leaders are getting their just deserves as Ultra sized figures. It would be cool if they release a Motormaster and Hotspot as Ultras in the future.
