TakaraTomy has announced the 2017 Diaclone Expo in Japan! This was originally announced for Saturday, the 8th, but seems to have been pushed back to a rain date of the 12th. Available at the expo will be a new head for Diabattles v2 for 1500 Yen, and the Power Suit C Type Solid Scan Version - which appears to be a clear or translucent plastic version - for 3300 Yen.

From the Welcome to Transformers 2010 line comes a reissue of the original 1980s Predaking, featuring a new gold plastic, die-cast and metallic paint!
This set includes Predacons Razorclaw, Rampage, Divebomb, Tantrum, and Headstrong. It also includes Razorclaw's cannon, 5 swords, 2 fists, 2 feet, Predaking's head, and a sword for Predaking.
Each figure converts from robot to beast and combine to create Predaking! Read on for images and more info.
Exhibition of the latest toys and stage · Enjoyable by everyone
It is a varied event such as attraction! It is!
We don't think we can say it much better than Google Translate did, so if you're going to be in Japan on August the 5th, keep reading to see more mechanically translated details about Transformers Fes 2017!
Finally (for now) on our Tokyo Toy Show tour is a small display of the Infobar phone Transformers under the au X Transformers label. These photos don't appear to show us anything new, but do indicate the project is still moving along. We presume at this point whatever crowdfunding obligation was required to keep this afloat was met, and these items will eventually see a release of some manner. Check out the photos from AmiAmi Hobby News below.
This Far Out Friday is a going to be a bit shorter than the others, as its all about these odd Generation 1 mid-Formers sold exclusively in Japan. Starting in 1986 as the "Gokin" series, then revived as the Takara "TF Jr" (Transformers Junior) series in 1987. You may have seen the Optimus Prime figure without realizing it because they looks pretty good at first sight. While smaller, they are actually very clever simplified re-designs of the full the sized toys.
