I guess it looks pretty cool, but I have no use for the regular one and much less use for importing one from Japan

Goes with the clear Bumblebee :) Speaking of which, here's a (Japanese, no-word) video showing him off:



The box also contains a so-called Secret Medal for the Kamen Rider Buttobasoul arcade game. That one is Kamen Rider Geiz from the current Kamen Rider Zi-O series.

7-Eleven Japan has something to say on 3/8. Thanks to fellow Seibertronian TrypticonCarne in the Energon Pub forums we've been alerted to a message on their 7Net Twitter page that announces, well, an announcement coming next week to the 7Net website. And if that isn't intriguing enough it's accompanied by a silhouette of what's likely the Takara Tomy Leader class-sized Legendary Optimus Prime for the Bumblebee Movie. Could we be getting another Ultra Magnus-esque 7-Eleven repaint like the MP-711 Convoy from last year? We'll know in a week.

Google translation of the Twitter message:

FYI, you may be better off posting those in the Siege thread since that's the line this Prime figure is from.

Right right, I meant studio Series. But I just noticed you did indeed post them there too. Cheers.

(Don't know why the robot mode pic didn't automatically apply with my previous post)

Robot mode looks quite elegant, better than the Legendary version IMO.

As we previously stated, 7-Eleven Japan revealed a new toy today, on 3/8. It turns out it's a redeco of Legendary Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime in Nemesis Prime colours, with all that lovely teal. It can be preordered now on the 7-Eleven site for 7500 yen plus tax. That is the only place to get it at the moment, so it's only available to Japanese residents. It may show up at site sponsors though (for a premium). The toy will be released September 13th, 2019, in 7-Eleven stores in Japan. You can check out the images below. Enjoy, and let us know what you think!

Finally, an official version of the knockoff that has literally been EVERYWHERE on eBay. I swear I could look up a potato on eBay on a computer that I've never used before, and this would still show up in the recommended results.

KO Trash-talk aside, this looks pretty cool.

The KO is more expensive though, right? At least more expensive than the original legendary prime.

So 7-11 huh? Hasbro should work with Circle K (insert local gas station/C-store here) to bring exclusives to the states. Fill your tank, get some smokes, maybe a scratch off ticket and an $80 toy.

This is the redeco I was hoping for to justify the figure. Hoping it's not too hard/pricey to get here.
