    Binaltech Agent Meister, Bluestreak, Convoy and Arcee in final colours on display.

    There's also a card with the words "Next Transformer Coming Soon..." and the sillhouette of a car. I wonder if this means a new BT mold is in the works.

    EDIT: The sillhouetted car looks like it might be the US Honda Civic. BT Rumble or Frenzy to come?

    UPDATE: Tformers.com has close ups from the show.

    I thougth that the new BT Convey was meant to be green or something? Or maybe I dreamn't that!!

    Any word if they're die-cast or not?

    If so I will be all over that prime.

    Yeah i think that looks like a Civic too. Hopefully Alt/BT Frenzy but probably BT Rumble.

    Is that Zoom Zoom in the corner. Wonder if he'll get a re-release?

    EDIT: Just his box to hold Silver Jazz:(

    It looks like Arcee will indeed be using the Windcharger head sculpt. The colours look much better than the retailer order form photoshopped mock up. No sign of the Paradron Medic colour variant.

    The only colour difference between BT Convoy and KP Convoy appear to be the blue eyes and red arms and blue fists.

    Is there anything differant between this new release of Convoy and the previous release? It looks the same as the one I have now.

    Doh! I pre-ordered from TFSource, so I can't cancel! How LAZY not to at least put a new head on Arcee.. And I thought that we were going to get a GREEN convoy?

    Maybe these aren't finished protos?

    No green Convoy more like an indicator which were diecast parts.

    huh....kinda looks like the new Nissan GTR from a profile. I'd love to see Nissan get into the Binaltech lines. I honestly think since the movies runaway sucess, that every car manufacturer wants dib in. Well except Porsche and VW.....wussies. Let's make a Bugatti Veyron, then let's see how fast we get a porsche jazz...lol

    These are the same as the existing figs apart from Arcee...?

    Edit: I see now, Silver Meister and Blue Bluestreak with no racing decals.

    I am getting really bored with Alternators/Binaltech because we haven't seen a new mold in years. I have the other 3 and Arcee is not appealing right now :(

    Agreed. Although, I was hoping for a closer look at them, but from what I can see, they look great.

    Very nice, glad I preordered Jazz, Bluestreak and Arcee...

    Too bad about Prime. Another color would have been cool.
