So Pat Lee is still involved with TFs? I thought his reputation was in tatters after the stunt he pulled with not paying those writers and artists due to Dreamwave going under, despite "securing" his BMW.

Autobots Set contains Premium Optimus Prime, Premium Bumblebee, Premium Jazz, Premium Ironhide, and regular Ratchet:


so strange that they can give metallic Ratchet since all are premium. for Brawl i do understand as there's no premium or metallic repaint of him...offer a Leader Brawl instead? haha

I soooo wanna go to HK in August!
If only the boxsets contained variants rather than the usual retail bots... that would make a big difference.
I guess evilbay's the only way to go to grab these bots :(

bro..no point grabbing those unless the whole set goes pretty cheap and if you have not obtained any premiums as yet

The boxes are actually not simple cardboard boxes. They're of a synthetic, leather-like material. Very nice. :)

The only thing dragging this set down is the 2nd signature on the certificate... :rolleyes: :D

I guess even TakaraTomy in Japan has no idea about the "damage". Hence their choice of style/designs for Revoltech Transformers... :p
