Actually, it's been like more than a week. First sightings were reported at April 13th, 2008. But unfortunately, since I'm not living on the capital city, I gotta ask for helps from my buddy at Jakarta, Indonesia, and now, I could finally get the pictures of the official release of Animated on South East Asia. SEA? Yes, because not only here on Indonesia, but Animated sightings were also reported on Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore toy stores. The most prominent figures sighted on Jakarta's toy shops are Prowl, Bumblebee, Blackarachnia, Ratchet, Bulkhead, Cybertron Optimus Prime, Voyager Earth Optimus Prime, Voyager Cybertron Megatron, Starscream, and Lockdown
