A few items of note:

* Rodimus is very G1-accurate purple-red-magenta. He has the purplest red of any Rodimus figure I've seen.

* Samurai Prowl's Recommended Retail Price is actually higher than those of all other deluxes; on the shelf he costs 25% more than the others.

* Waspinator is described on his card as transforming into a "mechanical bee". However, since the Japanese don't have separate words for bee and wasp this may just be a translation error. Also his rank is "Decepticon Mutant".

Don't exactly see the difference in Waspinator, other than a slight tinge to his little itty-bitty mandable-things on the side of his beast mode. Dunno about Rodimus. :lol:

Is the Japanese Samurai Prowl different (more chrome or whatever) than the US release?

I'd need to take a second look but I'm pretty sure all the gold parts are chrome.

I'm a bit disappointed in the fact that the Rodimus car mode is almost hidden too low in the packaging. I had pre-ordered the Japanese version just to keep sealed on display, but it's quite a bit less viewable than the American Animated packaging.

Oh well, still looks great though.

I know it's sad, but I just want all the cards that come with the toys! Must be the ol' sports card collector in me.
