These releases just make the Classics versions look embarrassing.

I bought all three USA editions when they came out and they were well worth the extra money.

Got Powerglide and Onslought from Robotkingdom the day they were up for sale. Love those guys.. :D It's a big pass on Silverbolt. He looks boring.

So does that mean we'll actually get the USA Editions IN the USA? :-?

No. Takara just calls them that… for some reason… I think…

Those figures probably would never have seen a regular release in Japan (I suspect because of size and/or because of electronics), so they would be "USA only". Since they're "USA only", but still desirable, Takara repainted them and slapped "USA Edition" on them for release in Japan.

I know, they're weird...
