    I drove a bicycle for two hours and obtained Mechtech Campaign two kinds.
    [​IMG]
    It was distributed 10,000 in total to this item in Toys "R" Us.
    I confirmed 100 stock in Toys "R" Us of Kameido where I went to.

    AIR RAID BIO and SPEC

    ----------
    AUTOBOT AIR RAID

    AIRLAID IS ONE OF THE MOST SKILFUL SOLDIERS AMONG AUTOBOTS.
    HE PREFERS TO FLY INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE ENEMY RATHER THAN
    SHOOT-OUT FROM A DISTANCE.
    HIS TECHNIQUE FOR FIREFIGHTING BREAKS ENEMY LINES AND FINDS
    A WAY OUT FOR VICTORY.

    MECHTECH
    BLASTER
    CONVERTS TO SHOT CANNON!

    STRENGTH: 5
    INTELLIGENCE: 7
    SPEED: 9
    ENOURANCE: 7
    RANK: 5
    COURAGE: 10
    FIREBLAST: 8
    SKILL: 7
    ----------

    The name of AIRRAID is listed in the package back side of the AIR RAID with AIRLAID. Probably I think that it is a misprint.

    AIRRAID and ARCEE are items for Japanese markets.
    I compared the back side of the package.There is not the right notation of companies such as HASBRO in AIRRAID.There is only logo mark of TAKARATOMY and PARAMOUNT in a package.I do not know the existence of vortex. A release schedule after next month is undetermined in Japan.

    Is this the first we've heard about Air Raid?

    None on Ebay, none at the usual TF import stores... that thing is awesome, I definitely gotta grab one somehow.

    I do like the color blocking on Air-Raid.

    Can't see Hasbro passing up the chance to squeeze a few more cents from the mold tho.

    Store exclusive down the line?


    Probably with another Chromia repaint. :rolleyes2 

    We first saw it a few months back along with a repainted Tomahawk that appears to Vortex.

    That is very nice looking. I'm impressed a very good use of the breakaway mold.

    WOW all of this looks like junk! very bland, not paint detail and looks like a cheap KO. Will pass and spend money on 3rd party stuff like FP and PE and CD.

    Thanks for the pics and information, masabon!

    I hope you appreciate the irony of spending hundreds of dollars on "third party" toys whilst complaining about the lack of paint on $10-$30 toys.

    Air Raid and Arcee (blue Chromia) were said to be Japanese exclusives. So don't expect them from Hasbro.

    Is it a good use of a re-mold? Yes. :thumb 

    Is it a decent colour scheme? For the most part- it COULD use work.

    Do I think "Air Raid" when I see this guy? No. :confused: 

    Heck between the colour scheme and the crossbow-esque weapon they could have even gotten away with Scattorshot.

    Honestly- change the 'bot logos for 'Con's and I'm personally seeing Ramjet more than anything else.

    Thats just my :2c:  though.
