The Cybertron Satellite campaign has been kicking around for awhile, and one might ask, what's the purpose of it? Alfes 2010 found out what the commotion and promotion was all about, as he reaped one of the rewards of the Cybertron Satellite - the varying coloured matrices! As seen in the November 2012 issue of Hyber Hobby (scans courtesy of ModXToy), there are fourteen different matrices for the fourteen different Primes of Japan: Akiba, Kawasaki, Tachikawa, Umeda, Nagoya, Saitama, Ginza, Mito, Sapporo, Itami, Fukutusu, Ikebukuro, Yokohama, and Sendai. More than just a keychain, each matrix can fit inside MP-10 Optimus Prime, and his subsequent repaints! Alfes 2010 was able to obtain the Mito Matrix, which is colored gold with a purple crystal, which coincides with Mito Prime's colors. Unfortunately there's a catch - you have to spend 3000 Yen at the appropriate sell store, and these are only limited to 200 each! Can you match the Primes with the matrices?

Did I ever mention how crappy it is to be a TF fan and not living in japan? It seems as if they get all the amazing stuff... granted, if I lived there, I'd be broke as a joke in 2 minutes.

*Insert "Light our darkest hour" joke here*

After the Matrix campaign, they should give us some actual Legends/EZ/Legion class figures of these Town Commanders.

Can these be obtained through online purchases at corresponding Japanese retailers, if so which stores? Thank you very much :3

As far as I'm aware, only 2 of the matrixes (matrices?) were released. The purple one and the blue one.

Yeah, and that pic was scanned from the November 2012 issue of Hyper Hobby magazine.

So if anyone's got all 14, it's probably someone on the TakaraTomy design team.
