I see a red door and I want it painted black...

The Tokyo Toy Show is infamous for giving us a few eye openers for exclusives. Last year's beauties were Elite Guard Prowl and G2 Dreadwing/Smokescreen The list will go on, as we're going to get a two-pack exclusive set of two Cybertronian toys this June. We're referring to Cybertronian Optimus Prime and Megatron, who will be decked out in "all black" color scheme. Keep it here for an official announcement, and hats off to Insider for the details.

Edit - Pictures courtesy of Famitoy blogspot. Not sure if it's the 'official announcement', but it'll do. Set looks like it will be selling in the high $60 US range. Enjoy!

These look really cool/badass but I want more W4C characters, not just another Optimus or Megatron or Bumblebee or Soundwave.

No foolin' HEY HASTAK, I WILL PAY A DECENT CHUNK OF CHANGE FOR A WFC STYLE ULTRA MAGNUS!!!

I know he wasn't in the game, but one that's all beefed up like some of the wicked fan ones I've seen. I'm very bad with the size classes, but one that's the size that Wal-Mart can't hang it from the peg would awesome. Heck, I'll even take just a repaint with a new face.

These will be mine ... oh yes, they WILL be mine!

I picked up the EG Prowl and the Dreadwing/Smokescreen set from last year, and they are all awesome.

Surprisingly enough, these do nothing for me. I think I'll save the $150 or so that these will cost.

Not a huge fan of that Megs mold, but the Prime mold looks pretty sharp in those colors.

$12.99 at Target, I'd be all over it. $60+ online? Not a chance.

Surprisingly, no. Japan's Black Convoy frenzy has ended for years now, any black Prime is just a black Prime. Look for the :BOT:

Speaking of Nemesis Prime, Dark Side Optimus Prime does bear a more than passing resemblance to Universe 2008 Nemesis Prime. Crud, I may need to make a Nemesis Prime shelf for when I find them :BANG_HEAD:

Prime looks fantastic.

However, i can't help but feel they missed an opportunity to give us a new deluxe Galvatron.

Hmmm, i need to learn how to paint...

You know, this smells of a Nemesis Prime setup. Or just paint variants like in the game. I might get a set just to have them. :grin:

Is anyone actually surprised that I'll be getting this? These are beautiful, and I'm really surprised at the new take on Megs. Interesting tweaks to the color scheme.

I'll have to get hold of these if I can, those digibashes look pretty promising...

If anyone's going and could pick a set up for me, that'd be ace!

Anyone reckon there'll be another single-figure exclusive?

Nice. Still I hate the size of the WFC figures, especially Prime and Megatron. Hasbro is ruining scale for the leaders.
