Fantofan says,TF Prime Unicron Takara Exclusive?

I was mildly fond of the toy as it didn't transform into planet & was voyager size. I was willing to buy this at the Hasbro retail store prices.
Since I mildy like the toy. I'm not willing to pay the higer Takara prices to buy this.
I'm willing to wait 12 months & see if Hasbro releases this or not. my TF spending budget can't handle quick impulse buys.
I ain't gonna shell out money for the takara higher priced version. then a few months later find out hasbro is releasing this in USA Retail stores.
worse case scenario I wait 12 months,hasbro never releases this. Then I go on-line & buy it or decide not to buy it.

Hasbro strikes out again if this true. But then Hasbro has been dropping the ball like crazy the last year or so. I still think Hasbro canceled Breakdown. So the only way to get him is from Takara also.

Hasbro canceled Skyquake and moved Dreadwing up in the waves. And honestly from what I have noticed
Skyquake died - Hasbro canceled Skyquake
Unicron technically died - Hasbro has never mentioned a Unicron toy
Breakdown died - Hasbro dodged the question about his toy instead of saying yes or no if they were going to release him
Cliffjumper died also yes, the only reason I think they released his figures is 1 he was already part of wave 1, 2 he is a deluxe
But I am seriously thinking Hasbro will not release Unicron or Breakdown and I would rather have buyers remorse by buying the Takara versions because I know they are releasing Unicron and Breakdown
Instead of taking the chance that Hasbro would figure it out in their heads that even if a character is dead, we still want their figure!

Maybe Breakdown has a twin brother somewhere - that'll have to do.
From the article:
Hopefully they just mean Gaia Unicron. The Hasbro version could be called something else, with a different colour scheme....
