Japanese site figsoku is reporting on a new licensed Transformers project. Japanese mobile phone provider au is working on a series of Transformers using its Infobar handsets as new alt modes for Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Bumblebee. All share the same physical design, but each have a different deco reflecting one of the standard colorations available on the real Infobar phone. The catch? This is a crowd funded plan, with a fundraising period from February 1 to March 30. So it's up in the air if these will happen at all. We have stills from a promo video, plus some publicity images, so keep reading to take a look.
Takara have posted an update to the official Transformers site. The will be offering a new incentive as part of the Cybertron Satellite campaign starting in December with Optimus Prime, followed by Megatron in April 2017.
Starting December 28th, when fans buy a certain amount of Transformers Masterpiece and Legends products from participating retailers. They will receive an limited edition Transformers Convoy metallic file with purchase that we believe is a 9x12" foil-type mini poster.
