Via the Takara Tomy Transformers page, we have an update on the new iteration of the Lucky Draw campaign taking place for the Adventure line - a gold plated Warrior class Optimus Prime (you can see the Hasbro version in its gallery here), in the limited number of 10 items, and a selection of 30 batches from the TAV line for 'second prize'.

The contest, running from now until 30th September, is open to collectors living in Japan, as shown in the poster below!

So how many Gold Primes does this make?

Also from Autobase Aichi we have an official image update - originally from TakaraTomyMall - on the Takara Tomy Transformers Adventure line, combining (heh) different toys from two lines - Hasbro Combiner Wars and Robots in Disguise 2015 - featuring redecos of Legends class Blackjack and Groove as TAV25 Runabout and TAV26 Override respectively, plus the Micron Shooter Fracture, its Micron, and Big Steeljaw. Check them all out below!

The mold actually works for override much better. He just needs some guns. I think I might get him.

And they found a clever, non-intrusive way to hide his sticker. :D

The Trigger-Bot well that is actually appealing not only will the colours look OK with the Protectobots they will also go OK with Victorian and Sky Lynx too (better than Wreck Gar does).

Does Runabout get some sort of prize for the most number of Decepticon logos in the smallest space - (Should have left the hood one off though as it messes up the look of him when used as a torso piece).

And even if Takara might like you to pretend you are not going to do that - people still will.

Very clever, indeed. Though, if I get duplicates so that one can be G1 Override, I'm still taking that sticker off, as I have with TAV Bombshell, Shrapnel, and Powerglide. Speaking of which, I still don't quite get why Takara went to the trouble of retooling those molds to have those circular chest indents for the stickers. Having the figures in hand, I can confirm they are unnecessary and that the stickers would have fit just fine on those figures if unaltered from the Hasbro releases of the mold. I know some of the proper Transformers RiD/Adventure figures have such indents. Was this an attempt to somehow "legitimize" these characters as belonging to the TAV line, instead of being "fillers" originally intend for Generations/Legends/Classics/whatever?

I wonder if the redeco of Sandsting is still Sandsting or if it might have a new identity (its name isn't given in the listing).

Override is pretty cool. Even fracture looks ok. Runabout is cancelled immediately though.

Mkall's preorder of Runabout, I'm guessing.

I would guess they'd place a pre-order for him before they saw it and now they've seen it they are going to cancel the pre-order.

My Runabout Pre-order is intact and I'm even feeling my awesome with this look, but that sticker on the windshield will be gone immediately.

That scannable logo on Runabout's chest/window ruins the look completely. The vehicle mode logos are pretty intrusive too, but that's what kills it entirely. Too bad, because otherwise he looks awesome with the new colors.

Bingo. He was interesting enough while shown in his promotional colours, but the final deco is redundant with the Club's Runabout and there's that audacious circular sticker.

While I agree on the sticker, I think the mold and class size makes this a better gen Runabout than he Club's offering.

Runabout looked so cool, I put a pre-order in for it; the shipping might be high enough for me to turn on the p.o.l.

The sticker actually blends with the other insignias due to the prominent white outline around all of them, very clever ;)

TAV25 Runabout will be perfect to complement my Takara Menasor! ;)

Love the Runamuck, doesn't beat the tfcc version, but I'll get him any way.

Override looks so good. I do wish he had some chromed out guns to plug on those tabs on his back end.
