Amazon Japan has just posted preorders for the first batch of Studio Series movie toys. Comprising the same range of figures as our wave 1 across the Deluxe, Voyager and Leader price points, 8 of the figures are currently being offered. These each have a release date set as April 21st. This is more or less consistent with earlier leaked information we heard via Toys R Us computers that indicated Studio Series as having an April 20th street date. Just as it was with Toy fair and Wonderfest this year, the time difference between the US and Japan means these will still effectively launch the same day. Keep reading for the new stock images that came with the listings!
Update: The price has since gone up to $174.99.
Our sponsor Big Bad Toy Store is now beginning to take pre-orders of TakaraTomy's Transformers Darkside Moon
DA-15 Jetwing Optimus Prime, and unlike the whopping $190 USD conversion pricetag
that was released last week, the retailer is offering a reprieve,
asking $150 USD for the figure. Not to mention the shipping costs you will save. The figure is slated to ship in the month of August. The figure is a retooled Transformers Revenge of the Fallen
Leader Optimus Prime, predominantly around the abdomen area and gets some big guns to boot.
