Takara Tomy shared a few photos on Twitter and several more were shared on their official Transformers Twitter account, but by far the largest collection of photos is that of Autobase Aichi on Facebook. They've collected five albums broken into BB Movie, Arts, Prototypes, Toys, and the exhibit itself. There's far more in there than can be mirrored here so I encourage you to go to the links above and see for yourself some of the amazing things on display and then come back here to talk about them in the Energon Pub forums below!

And I wonder if any artists on the early Marvel UK book somehow saw that drawing of gold Megatron...
As priceless as the prototypes are, setting up that Black Zarak may have been the most nerve-wracking job at this exhibit.
Guess I should've known some early prototypes were carved from wood, but seeing what look like voodoo dolls of Rodimus Prime, Galvatron, and Six Shot is actually creeping me out when it should be awe inspiring. Maybe I'm just too tired.
Definitely checking out those other galleries tomorrow!

I believe this is from when Takara originally intended to release Diaclone and Microman figures as part of a line called "Henshin Sentai Transformers". The Powered Convoy, blue Blaster and red Tracks seem to match up with this statement, along with a little article I read about it somewhere a while ago that said there was art made featuring Blaster shooting Ultra Magnus.
