Does that face in the thumbnail look Arcee-esque to you? Well, according to some sources, they have information that indeed the Alternator Dragstrip mold will see the light of day in Japan as Arcee!?!
Not only that, but there is also a piece of the translation that says that there will be a bright green repaint of the BT-Convoy mold??? Who or what that is to be is undetermined, but Nevermore, and Moonbug at THE ALLSPARK had a translation for a possible Tiger Convoy.
Will these see the light of day continuing the Binaltech line as the new BT-21, and BT-22, or is this just an early April Fool's Day joke?
The original posting of this news is on TRANSFORMERS AT THE MOON which you can view here, which is also the original source for the above pictures.

Several online retailers now have pre-orders available for these two figures. Their release date is scheduled for July 17, 2008.
Dutch mobile phones site iPhoneclub.nl has placed an article on their website, claiming that iPod Company XtremeMac has signed a deal to cross promote their hardcase edition of the iPhone 2.0 product with an action figure from the Transformers 2 movie, set to be released in June 2009.
Neil Harden, marketing director for XtremeMac, did not want to say which figures will be used in the cross promotion, but he did have the following to say in the article;
"We are excited that we will link our Xtreme iPhone hardcase with Transformers 2. Eventhough Transformers 2 won't be in theaters until june 2009, it's never to early to start the hype. We expect these to be sold out in a matter of hours. These [Transformers-fans] are completely predictable. That's why Paramount is making the sequel".
It would appear that the claims made iPhoneclub.nl have been proven to be false. The site has updated the page stating that they have been the victom of a hoax.
"Our apologies, but this message, from iPhonesavior is a fake and made up by them meant to be a satire. After some research it appears that XstreamMac doesn't exist (a variant on the name of the well known XtremeMac) and we can find no record of the aforementioned Director of Marketing, Neil Harden. We've simply been had. :( "

Jedi Insider has a bi-weekly Question and Answer session where they get to have 3 questions asked and (hopefully) answered by some knowledgeable Star Wars brand team.
One of this week's questions involved Star Wars Transformers molds available in the future:
"Jedi Insider: Can you tell us what new Transformers/Star Wars sculpts we might see for this year?
Hasbro: Four all-new sculpts are planned for later this Fall. We are going to be revealing all of them (and possibly more) at Comic Con, but we'll give you a little taste of our September wave: General Grievous/Grievous Starfighter, and TIE Pilot/TIE Bomber.
Not a lot, but a little bit to wet our appetites until Comic Con comes around.
You can view the original Jedi Insider thread here as well as review past submitted questions.
For those with a lot of patience and creativity, the Papercraft Starscream model may be for you.
Made of 81 downloadable pages of designs to assemble, this model looks quite impressive when completed.
"The pattern is not as refined as I would have wanted it to be, but with a final product that looks like that (see pic), I'm all for it. It's in PDO format so you'll need to download the Pepakura viewer to view the file, oh and one more thing, it's a massive 81 pages. Take your time kids, take your time."
