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.

Stay tuned to Tformers.com for more details as they are made available. Your best resource for all the Transformers news and community every day.
