Omega Supreme






Savvy Transformers collectors know that Omega Supreme was produced by Toy Box and originally sold as MechaBot-1. Toy Box was absorbed by TakaraTomy a few years ago, which gave them the rights to the figure. Images of the original toy and package have been posted on the Takara site. Could this be a pre-image of a new Omega Supreme exclusive?

As a reminder, eHobby is releasing an Omega Supreme exclusive re-colored as a Guardian City Robot (Omega Sentinel)

SDCC has updated their website with more information and pictures for the exclusive Skywarp and Nemesis Prime figures.

Classics Nemesis Prime
“This lowly warrior was reconstructed to be the very image of OPTIMUS PRIME. This NEMESIS PRIME figure has the shape of the mighty AUTOBOT leader, but his gray and black deco makes this figure unique. TRANSFORMERS VOYAGER CLASS figure changes from robot-mode to vehicle-mode and back again. Figure wields a wind vane that becomes an ion blaster, and a smokestack that becomes a laser cannon in robot mode! This HasbroToyShop.com exclusive launches at San Diego Comic-Con 2008!”






Titanium Skywarp
"This authority-indifferent seeker is now part of the Transformers Titanium Series brand. Standing 6" tall, this incredible figure includes display stand and case. Awesome detailed die-cast metal. TRANSFORMERS figure changes from robot-mode to vehicle-mode and back again. This HasbroToyShop.com exclusive launches at San Diego Comic-Con 2008!"







The San Diego Comic Convention runs from July 24th – 27th. The number of each figure to be produced has not been announced yet. Previous SDCC exclusive Transformers figures, like Alternator Nemesis Prime and Hot Rod were available after the event.

HK-TF.com has posted information from a recent Takara retailer catalogue about 4th Quarter 2008. The catalogue confirms the release dates that were announced earlier this week for the Masterpiece, Henkei, and Alternity series.

The most interesting information is that in December, Takara will begin their 25th Anniversary marketing project. There is no further information at this time, but older fans will remember that the 20th Anniversary gave us many great reissued and new figures.

Crystal Prime is now showing up on various internet auctions. A seller on eBay has posted several in package images of the Henkei Convoy Clear version (Crystal Prime). This figure is an eHobby exclusive and is presently selling at the International Tokyo Toy Festival this weekend.

eHobby will retain a few of these sets and will sell them on their eHobby website through a lottery system. The lottery system runs from July 1st-7th and is open to Japanese residents only.

The eBay seller, Anglo, indicates in his auction that the attendees at the International Tokyo Toy Festival were limited to two figures each. And Crystal Prime sold out within the first hour.

Today was TFCon 2008 in Toronto, Canada, which was Canada's 7th Annual Transformers Convention. Our fellow Seibertronian and Seibertron.com New Crew member Down_Shift was there to help cover the events from today. He sent me several text messages highlighting some items from the show today and said that he has a lot of pictures which he'll be sharing with us in the next couple of days. To tie you guys over, here's what he said via text message earlier today:

"Hey boss, Fan projects are here at tfcon and they are showing the magnus upgrade kit with a TFCon exclusive Powered Convoy (Diaclone colors). There's also a new Alternators Prime kit too. Gas can become G1 ion blaster and new rad support becomes matrix chamber and matrix. Lots of pictures! I just took so many up close pictures of Universe Ironhide and his weapon. You fold his hand back to attach his weapon to his wrist."

I'll be sure to share his pictures with all of you as soon as I get them!

Online retailer, Bo-Ya, has posted information on their pre-order page about the newly announced Alternity series, which features the Nissan GT-R Convoy figure.

Vibrant Red: http://item.rakuten.co.jp/bo-ya/532--4904810318996/

Silver: http://item.rakuten.co.jp/bo-ya/532--4904810316077/

The product description translates as follows:

GT-R transforms to robot. 1:32 scale model of collectible size. Automorph mechanism incorporated for ease of transformation. Heavy appearance making use of die-cast like Binaltech. New series! Red color scheme is for Convoy homage and silver is for the car's signature color.
