Default Amazon.com now listing Year of the Dragon Optimus

What is going on with Amazon US?

First it was the Gen2 coloured Bruticus for US$60, available outside of America.

Then it was an unknown (re)deco Jetwing Optimus for $105... also available to non-US buyers.

Now we have the HK "exclusive" Year of the Dragon deco of the Ultimate Optimus Prime toy, for $100. And yes, available to non-US buyers.
So for those who were not able to afford this version, but wanted it, this might be your chance.

There's no release date noted yet, but it is selling fast, as it has already made it to number 5 on the action figure hot-sellers listing (with the other two at #1 & #3). Actually, TFs currently has 6 of the top 10 spots!

Fingers crossed that Amazon are going to be having more Asian Transformers as a regular thing, and being available to us too.
They obviously saw/underestimated how well Unicron did be last year, so maybe they are ramping up their sourcing of other Transformers goodies.

Awesome, though I'm not too keen about this figure I do hope that Amazon does stock the ASian Exclusive Generations too!

For anyone who pre-ordered one, apparently it is being released very soon, as people are getting emails from Amazon about its delivery date. Since it is saying the next few days for Americans, it should mean that it has arrived at Amazon, and is about to be shipped.
Anyone here still wanting one, if you order now, it will probably get to you by next weekend... or very soon after that.

News is that it is indeed shipping, and that it has been reduced by $15, while stocks last.
That could mean getting one for about AU$100... which is less than what the original version was priced at here (before sales and discounting).
