I'm very glad I ordered him, and the others too.

Otherwise, I don't see them worth the import prices, or do I

I don't think I'll be getting any of them. Not even Megatron, unless I see him for cheap at a convention. Though if they do release a Sunstorm or Nemesis Prime, a character that hasn't been done over here, I'll pick it up.
As for the BotCon question, I don't think we'll see a Japanese Classics Thundercracker, or the other Seeker exclusives. A lot of fans(and scalpers) would be really upset if they did that.

Hopefully, my local hobby shop guy will follow his current trend of getting Japanese TFs so I can get a couple of these guys.

Matter of opinion. I'm probably going to get this (better) version of Megatron when it's available on action-hq; beyond that I'm happy with my collection.

Sadly, I would think that Botcon exclusives would be the same for Japan as the G1-deco Movie Arcee is for us... I'd love to get my hands on Thrust though.

Cybertron Excellion......it was Hasbro's answer to fans who saw an exclusive version of Galaxy Force Excellion that was repainted to look like Hot Rod. Was not identical to the GF exclusive of Excellion, so therefore did not breach any rights, & we still got a Hot Rod colored Excellion figure...of sorts(a bit too much gray in robot mode for my taste).Diem wrote:Why shouldn't we get the Botcon exclusives? It's quite a hike from Japan to botcon, you know?
That being said, I don't see why they couldn't so long as they weren't identical to the Botcon ones. Only problem then is since the Botcon figures were meant to be more designed to look identical to their G1 counterparts, deviating from that to avoid legal problems would make the other seekers look off next to the others, since Takara is doing the same as Botcon & painting their classics too look more like their G1 counterparts.

The Grimlock and Mirage look better but I've go the originals so I'll pass.
I wouldn't be surprised if Japan gets a Yellow Seeker repaint, they're as gay for Sunstorm as the rest of us. The BotCon Seeker's as much as I'd love'em I don't think they're likely, figures crossed though
