Could the Transformers Optimus Prime Jetwing Movie figures be coming to the USA as an Amazon exclusive? Just when we thought MECHTECH was dead and gone, this appears. According to a new pre-order page it looks like this set may be coming our way. With a hefty price tag of $105 USD, one can assume this is a larger set with a supreme class figure and accessories in it - better be for that price. The is no information about release date but it does say it will be availble for order outside the USA.

I live in Australia and have recently purchased DOTM leader class Ironhide from Toys R Us. I was very disappointed when I discovered that the head on my figure couldn't turn at all. I had previously seen some reviews of this figure indicating that the head should actually be able to turn, albeit somewhat limited by the mask. When I returned to the store, the shop assistant offered to open another Ironhide to check whether the head could turn. To my surprise, this ironhide also could not turn its head, leading me to believe that this problem is not an isolated issue with my figure. Is there a special way to turn the head that I don't know about? Does anyone else have this issue?

Thanks again to Peaugh, we have a video review of the Transformers
Hunt For the Decepticons Human Alliance Jazz with Captain Lennox. How does this figure stack up? Peaugh says this is easily the best Human Alliance figure to date. And despite his lack of favor for the Transformers
universe Jazz, he loves this figure. Watch all the details after the jump.
We got our first great look at the Transformers
Hunt For the Decepticons Deluxe Hailstorm figure during BotCon 2010, and now, we have a video review of the figure. How does this new deluxe mold hold? Take a look!
This is NOT a review (obviously, since I'm not talking), just a video to show the transformation and the various gimmicks. I was hoping to have background music but the little one was sleeping so... :)
