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.

Update 3/26/08
Several online retailers now have pre-orders available for these two figures. Their release date is scheduled for July 17, 2008.

BBTS has received word that the colored picture of Convoy BT-22 is “not final color – prototype only”.

FantoFan has news that both will contain die-cast parts. BT-21 Arcee will have “renewed parts from BT-12 Overdrive, face, wheel, wing etc will be new.”

Of all the colours in the bloody rainbow, why lime green!?



I think Arcee looks awful in that mould. She looks like a butch biatch :P



These have just gotta be jokes. They're awful.

I agree to everything you say. If they'll going to keep making these then Alternators are gonna die,...again

This is all the Binaltech is going to be.

Well, Arcee looks terrible. Not very feminine looking at all. And a green Prime is even worse. Couldn't they have just done a red Subaru and called him Cliffjumper? That would've been a heck of a lot better than these IMO.

Oh dear god in heaven.

It's not often that I bash molds outright...I usually like to give them a chance individually.

But...oh dear god in heaven...

I think I'm still seeing spots before my eyes from that "convoy" color...

...and I never liked that Dragstrip mold- always thought the legs were too flimsy...but as Arcee?

Just shoot me now. Please. Have Mercy.

Ah, I see April Fools came a week early in Japan this year. Either that or someone at Tomy/Takara is on drugs. "Arcee" looks awful and "Prime" looks worse.

I don’t think they’re that bad, but I had always hoped for Arcee to be a Ford GT…

Well the color choices may be questionable but at least the line is back from the dead.

If sales are good perhaps we can start seeing new molds soon. :PRAY:

From an Alt/BT fan, these look terrible. I'd very much wanted the line to continue. If these are serious, they seem almost like intentional attempts to kill the line permanently, unless Japanese collectors have very different tastes in color from most of us who've commented here. Your average customizer (myself included) could do better. Quite a shame, really.

This has got to be a fake. I can't believe that they would release photos like this of upcoming products. Honestly? I think we should take this article down until we get better confirmation.

That... "Prime" made me just feel sick. Let's all dub it Vomitron Prime or something like that.

The Arcee? Don't get me started. That was horrible.
For BT/Alt to continue with new molds... I'd hope for some all new molds... like a Pontiac Firebird, or a Enzo/Ferrari F50-ish car.
(A formula 1 car as a new mold, would be not probable, since the robot mode would be frail and thin, compared to the other molds from earlier.

These photos look suspiciously photoshopped to me.

Poor old Arcee has been on the steroids or something.

If they are real then maybe green convoy could work in a Fast and the Furious kind of way but Reprolabels would need to create some sort of black design to stick on to finish the effect.

In general, bleaugh! :SICK:

The BT line is my personal favourite and I would rather see new designs than this. I am ok with Bluestreak and the new silver Meister but maybe this is pushing things a bit too far?

I don't care if the new molds arnt real cars so long as they look like they COULD be real and continue with the general design aesthetics.

Yea, a week away! :-)

I don't think these are april fools jokes, but they are pretty clearly digi-bashes.

I'm not sure the images are official, but the info may be. Someone on a japanese site may have bashed together somethign when they heard the rumors.

And, think of the Prime this way, if the awful green is supposed to be Constructicon green, it isn't nearly as bad.

I think that bright green color indicates that Prime glows in the dark
