So far not much is known about the event, though it will be occuring at Otsu Western Store in Kyoto from the 3rd of August to the 8th and at Yokohama Sogo Store from the 10th to the 16th. So far it is unknown if further stores and dates will be added. In addition to Optimus Prime Black Version being on sale in limited numbers for 4200 yen, attendees will be able to see a Camaro painted up as Bumblebee and two-metre-tall models of Prime and Bumblebee, and will be able to purchase Masterpiece Convoy as well as Transformers T-shirts and cups.

At the risk of playing the pessimist, that's 4200 for a figure that will be limited to Botcon-type numbers. Expect a healthy mark-up on that price.

It is worth it for anybody to take the cheaper original figure and kitbash into said exclusive. Hell, in some cases you could even buy resin just to make copies of the original toy and still walk away with money in your wallet with some of these prices. Granted the starting cost is hefty, but once you spread it out across several figures, well, if you got the time and the skills, then who needs Botcon?
This isn't even bad for a Japanese Convention Exclusive, only around 2.3x the retail price of a Voyager, instead of the usual 5-6x
