Takara Tomy Release Transformers BotShots In Japan as New BeCool Toys
Jack - Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Thanks to The ALLSpark member SwiftEagle who has posted news and images about the Takara Tomy release of Botshots in Japan called "BeCool." The in-store images show off the figures have been released in small boxes ala Choro-Q series with comments from SwiftEagle that there are six toys available in two different package variations at present. Read on to see the full details and images.
So here's an oddity! A friend in Japan was contacted by *his* friend in Japan with the info that Bot Shots have been released there, but only in one store (that he's seen so far). There are six toys out, each with two different packaging variations. Seems like a test market run to see how they'll do at retail there.

Additional info!

The line is called BeCool (pun on "vehicle"). Bumblebee is the battle-mask version from the latest Hasbro wave. The price is 714 yen.

Surely never to be topped in terms of retail price as the costliest Ultra Magnus that ever will be, we have new official shots of Ultimetal Ultra Magnus. This round of images is in full color with all paint details in place, showing off the fully armored form with some specific paint app callouts, and likewise proving the white Optimus base body is there with its removable pieces still in use and the mechanical skeleton below. Action Toys is listing this at over 5000 Hong Kong Dollars - about $720 USD today, so this is probably something only on the radar of a select few. See the pictures below!
The Instagram account of Prime1Studios has posted a teaser image for their next Premium Masterline figure! With hashtags indicating it is once again sculpted by Josh Nizzi, we get a look at PMTF-2 Soundwave! ...well, his shoulder. But Laserbeak is on the shoulder! Keep reading to have a look.
Now a mainstay at San Diego Comic-Con International, pop-culture purveyor Shout! Factory returns to the convention in 2016 with a dynamic lineup, featuring captivating panel events, celebrity autograph signings, a showcase of new and upcoming home entertainment products, Comic-Con exclusive items and engaging booth activities. Fans and convention attendees are invited to join in on the excitement at the Shout! Factory booth (#4118) on the main convention floor.
Prime1Studio has posted a gallery of images of their new PMTF-1 Optimus Prime statue! Coming in at 2 feet tall and USD $1000, the statue features LED eyes and was designed by famed Transformers movie concept designer Josh Nizzi - and in a different, perhaps better world, this would have made a great movie design for Optimus Prime. A limited edition of 750 will have Prime's trademark energy axe instead of the normal edition of 1500's Ion Blaster. Keep reading to see!
A double-issue to tie it all up, and every wild idea left in the memory banks gets thrown at us. Transformers vs. GI Joe #13 is written by Tom Scioli and John Barber with art, colors, and lettering by Scioli. Click through to read the review!
