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.

On Facebook, user z75sales has finished up with the production sample G2 Protectobots, posting some group images as well as the promised gallery of the set combined as Defensor.

We've again mirrored some of the pictures, and you can find links to the originals below, so keep reading to see it - just for your own safety, don't look directly at Defensor.
While most of us had eyes only for Botcon, user z75sales on Facebook was posting galleries of the production sample original G2 Protectobots, found in the collection of a deceased Hasbro employee. As of this posting Hot Spot is the most recent, and this may be the best look you'll ever get at an original G2 Hot Spot, which is actually quite sad. A gallery of Defensor is promised to follow soon. We've mirrored a few of the photos to get you started, but go check out the full galleries as well!
