Thanks to "sgt__york
," we have learned that TakaraTomy's BinalTech BT-22 Convoy
has been delayed. It is unknown at this time for the reason of this delay. "Sgt__york" cites the owner of a major pre-order company, and this information has been further confirmed by Japanese e-retailer O-Kawaya
has posted an in-depth gallery of BinalTech BT-21 Arcee. The gallery
focuses on the figure's vehicle mode and shows an up-close shot of the figure's head mold.
BBTS has let us know they've received their shipment of the newest Binaltechs out of Japan. Bluestreak is redone here in a pure blue paintjob, without all of the decals and designs that marked his original Binaltech release(s). Meister, or Jazz as he's known in the States, is redone here, not only in a silver paintjob, but also using some of the alterations from the Laserwave version of this Mazda mold - $59.99 each for these die-cast beauties.

Amazon Japan has a pre-order listing of a standard Binaltech BT-22 Convoy Dodge Ram figure
(and not a cute girl of dubious legal age in-sight!). Perhaps, if you were waiting for a more, ahem, "morally justified" rendition of the Takara Convoy , then, quite possibly, this is for you.
Check out the pre-order at Amazon Japan
. This item will be released on July 17, 2008, priced 4,998 Yen / $48 USD.
Looks like there will be two versions of Transformers Binaltech BT-21 Arcee Honda S2000 Hardtops from TakaraTomy. This is in similar fashion to BT-08 Meister, which was released in both white and red. One will be in Arcee colors, which we have already seen
and another in Paradron Medic colors. Both are expected to be released simultaneously in Japan, retailing at 5,000 Yen each on July 17, 2008.
First BinalTech releases hit a slow patch, but 2008 seems to be bringing about a resurgence of the series for the line by TakaraTomy. Following the BT-19 Bluestreak and BT-20 Meister v2

, that BT-21 will be a repainted Transformers: Alternators Windcharger
while BT-22 will be another version of the BinalTech Convoy figure. Continue reading
UPDATE: We have personally confirmed with BBTS that these two figures will indeed be released around June 2008.
