You might remember the Takara Tomy Q-Transformers collaboration with Decks Tokyo Beach we reported on not too long ago - we now also have an official video clip to promote the initiative, with Q-Transformers Optimus Prime and Bumblebee starring as hosts, and a glimpse of Lockdown too. Check it out below!
Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertronian Emerje, we can report on a Takara Tomy Q Transformers Return of the Mystery of Convoy series-themed event in Odaiba, Tokyo Bay, next April 29th! You can find out more at the official website here (in Japanese) or over at Crunchyroll here.
The Decks Tokyo Beach shopping center in Odaiba, Tokyo Bay, Japan, is teaming up with Q Transformers: Return of the Mystery of Convoy in a promotional campaign beginning on April 29, 2015. The event kicks off with a special live event featuring Ryuhei Kimura, the voice of Bumblebee, and Kōtarō Ishidate, the director of Q Transformers.
There will also be special lottery style drawings for prizes, such as Q Transformers character goods and free passes to Joypolis, a Sega-themed amusement park located at Decks Tokyo Beach.
The collaboration campaign also includes a special theme menu for the Decks Tokyo Beach Dipping Dots ice cream store. Purchases of these desserts come with one of three collectible coasters, while supplies last.
Q Transformers: Return of the Mystery of Convoy is a 2015 Flash-based anime series that premiered on such websites as Niconico and Youtube. It features Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and Lockdown discussing ridiculous things in a fashion very similar to shows like gdgd fairies and Hi-sCool! Seha Girls.
The campaign runs from April 29 until May 17, 2015.
