Takara Tomy Release Transformers BotShots In Japan as New BeCool Toys

By Jack on 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.

We here at TFormers would like to take a quick time out today to send our well wishes on to celebrated voice actor Peter Cullen, who turns (an impressively young-looking) 74 years old today. While of course in our fandom he is and always will be best known for the voice of Optimus Prime, he'd had a great career outside of the various iterations of that role, including Dungeons & Dragons, GI Joe, and of course the voice of Eeyore in numerous Winnie The Pooh animations. Happy birthday, and thank you for all you've given us!
52Toys caught sight of another SD-style Transformers product from Fewture. Their ES Gokin series will be bringing out a Fortress Maximus figure in the near future, but that's not the only thing to note here. On a display card behind Max is a silhouette that bears a distinct resemblance to Victory leader Star Saber, giving a good pointer of what might be next up after Fortress Maximus has come himself. Keep reading to check out the photos!
Finally hitting shops next week, we have the short preview for Transformers vs GI Joe issue 8, fresh off iTunes. Originally intended for release in April, the issue's publication was a bullet point at IDW's panel during SDCC earlier this month. Has it been worth the wait? Find out early next week when we post our review of the issue before it goes on sale next Wednesday. Keep reading for the pages and the very brief teaser text.
