TakaraTomy is starting a new contest next year in Japan, tying the release of MP-22 Ultra Magnus into the QTransformers line and its smartphone remake of the Mystery of Convoy game for the Famicom.

Mainly what this all means to US viewers is a neat promotional image based on the "Death of Convoy" teaser ad for Transformers 2010, AKA Transformers G1 Season 3.
