    I haven't seen any news regarding this in quite a while. I know they were floating around, and speculation was that it would be a credit card or club exclusive of some kind. Has there been any news on this recently, or did it just kind of fizzle out?

    No news yet. We'll just have to wait and see if anything ever comes of it.

    Apparently Hasbro wrote it off as a KO at Botcon.

    I thought I read somewhere that Hasbro confirmed it was a knock off

    Didn't Hasbro say that it was not theirs? If so it could still be TakaraTomy, I'm hoping for it to be a Transformers United toy.

    Anyone can chrome stuff these days. The chrome means nothing really. It was probably someone's custom or something and that fact got lost in translation.

    Uh no I have one. It's definitely not a custom.

    It's likely something Takara was going to make but didn't, like Henkei Convoy Black.

    I was thinking the same thing, might hopefully be a TF United toy.

    Maybe, like the Henkei Black Convoy, we could get one of th KO companies to make it... along with Tap-Out.

    maybe, but when is the question. Last time we saw something like this it was the black henkie convoy.Saw a pic,told it was going to be a wonderfest excl., and then nothing. the blue bumble's info was even less. A couple of sellers had it(or still do) but thats about it. Same with the black henkie convoy when it came out.

    ^ Correct but that was eons ago/back in G1 era. Moreover, I don't think its based off that heritage else we would be seeing more of these turning up in almost every color ever released back then, no? :p

    Me and Diablien have one. Its got stampings on there so its not a ko. Actually didn't pay that much for them. Its very possible it will become another Wonderfest Convoy non released figure.
