This works out really well for me. Cartoon accurate Prime will take over MP-10's place in my Autobots display, and MP-10 will take command of his army of MP-10 repaints on another shelf.

Yeah, if what we're seeing is right, I don't see how a 4.0 is justifiable.

I can see this prime 3.0 being alot cleaner, no transparent parts, no mechanical detail unless the show model had it, gonna be kinda bland but high poseability with an overly complex transformation, would NOT be surprised if they pull a fast one and make the trailer and a bunch of his accessories ttmall exclusives (and to really make it hurt, make the mp10 trailer obsolete), would help make this new one affordable, and if we're lucky some 3p will give us a trailer adaptor heh.

I'm more worried about what other companies will do, will they lie for the consumers sake so they don't need to make specialized systems for the tax (because remember, the government wants the retailers to collect the tax and THEN send it to the government, not typical customs does all the work stuff), will they IP block us (like ebay was thinking awhile back) or will they bow down knowing australia buys alot of imports?

The money, I can contend with considering EVERYTHING is going up, my issue is will exporters continue to deal with us, time will tell, but thanks to some companies I almost refuse to buy australian anymore, so that 10% better fix the pot holes in the road I'll shut up now before I derail this

Are there actually any proper pics of this new Prime, or is it all conjecture and sarcasm?

A new Prime was inevitable, it's like printing money for Takara, and they get 5+ years of reapaints as well.
