    Thumbs up Not bad...

    I don't mind it, but I prefer my Henkei one... will most likely pick this one up anyway (along with Generations Thrust) and leave him trapped in his plastic prison for the rest of eternity

    Also why do Hasbro always feel the need to change the alarm lights from the japanese->american style and then make them completely opaque. That just confuses children even more. "Mommy why doesn't our car have a boomerang on the roof?"
    That only works if your cop cars are lambos.

    Cant wait for this guy

    with the insane prices for a Henkei Red alert currently, this is a no brainer for me.

    Now all i need is henkei smokescreen for a decent price...

    Keep in mind they are $10/12 US, which is where the cheapness comes in.

    Yeah, local pricing means squat when comparing cost/value of Hasbro TFs to TT TFs. Our local prices are set high, to counter-act dips in the exchange rate, so that they don't have to adjust their wholesale prices all the time. It might sound lazy, but I think it is just to keep retailers happy who are probably not wanting to have to re-calculate their retail prices with every shipment.
    While everything is traded in US$, the cost of each item to Hasbro AUS can change dramatically over a short period of time. Just see the last couple months as an example - our toy prices would go up and down like the price of petrol.
