Found this on BBTS today and I am not dreaming.

Hasbro better figure out their licensing issues b/c Takara keeps taking all my money.

I hope they can, Lango, but I'm not optimistic.
We'll hopefully know more between SDCC and Botcon.

They are well worth the import prices. Sideswipe and Red Alert were spectacular. Love what Takara is doing. This is the dream Masterpiece/Classics Transformer line for me.

I just got Tigertrack as well, and he looks stunning in yellow!
I always regret selling my original Tigertrack, so this one helps ease the stung quite a bit :)

I own a Sideswipe and it is one of my favorite MP figures. I am hopping the others are just as good.

I have the US Toys R Us edition of Soundwave and he (and his million accessories and all the cassettes) are perfect. I can't wait to see Bumblebee. I'm anxious to see Ultra Magnus as well.

Now that Wheeljack has been officially confirmed and grey prototype shown, I could not be happier. He looks awesome. And 3rd Party groups are already planning more accessories for him, like the Immobilizer, A dinobot brain and the cannon that blew up in his face when he tried to shoot Megatron with it.

Masterpiece Sideswipe turned out ot be a super-fave toy although I had no interest in the character, and the Datsun mold (I got Prowl) is super-sweet too. I get these things right from Takara in Japan, and now that there is a hard rumor that Hasbro will sell Prowl in the US for more than he goes for in Japan, I'm happy that I did. We'll see how that actually shakes out but for the most part, Hasbro can suck it. Trying to buy TRU exclusives is a huge pain in the rear and I'd rather just go to HLJ or something and buy them from Japan. Plus, who the hell are Acidstorm and Sunstorm? (I know who they are, nobodies. No-name characters when they could be selling Starscream or Skywarp on the new MP-11 mold)

Oh Wheeljack, invent a device so that we two can be legally married, while I am also maried to a human.

Love that they went with real-world car deco on this. That is gonna be sexy sexy sexy. Red wheels and everything.
That car is such a big deal in the racing world. Seriously, it changed the game.
Any other character I'd say go for cartoon robot appearance first, but this one is special.

The Strattos is something else. I may have to just keep WJ in alt mode.

I'm with ya on that one. First time I seriously considered getting a 2nd one to keep in car mode. That Lancia is pure sex on wheels.

And I like how he's coming out. The one on the floor at Tokyo Toy Show is lookin sharp, with some changes to materials used.

And hey! First look at Ultra Magnus in color!
