First, MUST SEE FINAL PICS!

Maybe it's an abbreviation of Combaticon? I'm not sure though.

I think unless the figure has a completely unique deco in Japan, that I'll stick with the North American figs for the Prime run.

I'm praying that they don't make these figures look shiny. Cuz it would really tick me off since, for once, the character ARE shiny in the show. |:|

Pretty sure they'll go the metallic route, but i'm sure it'll be rather gaudy.

Most of the retailer listings say that these figures will feature metallic paint. I actually wouldn't mind that as it'd make them look less like Hasbro's rather bland looking figures and more like the swanky PhotoShop-ped images.

Does anyone know what it is that makes the First Edition figures different to what will be coming later?
