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.

TFCon Chicago is almost here, and quite a few companies are showing up to have fun! Among the unexpected publishers... are ThreeA, makers of the upcoming Premium Scale G1 Optimus Prime figure.
