Am I the only one who when they read "Cordon", they think "Cordon Bleu"?

I am sure for some of you Cordon holds a very special place in your hearts (as your first transformer etc) but to me this guy looks like a great army builder character. He looks generic enough and with his uniform look I can see having a squad of Cordons to enforce law on your shelf. Cordon Squad :P
Anyone else feeling the vibe?

It'd be quite an expensive army - enough to make the government's spending in defense look like loose pocket change

I was actually looking forward to this figure more than the Sunstreaker. There's something appealing and unique about a police Lamborghini. I also love the look of this figure itself, it's so G1 toy-accurate, but 16,200 yen is pretty steep for what it actually is (translates to AUD 196.24).

Also confirms that this thing isn't cheap - ¥16200.
It definitely seems like a worrying trend, given the price of MP-29+

I don't think it is going to be automatically boycotted. I think that this discussion even takes place is hilariously ridiculous.

How is it ridiculous to discuss an aspect of the production run of a much loved figure line, whilst having it bear absolutely no impact on someone's feelings for said line?
