    Thanks to Cybergundam blog for the scans.

    A closer look at 2010 edition Unicron and first looks at the clear trailer for MP-4S, clear deluxe class Animated Optimus and Rodimus set and Disney Label Buzz Lightyear in package.

    Dead Convoy DOES have a clear trailer! Sweet. I'm glad I've got all three of those on preorder.

    Sleep mode Convoy's got the "lightsabre" scarring on the left of his ab grill. Neat movie accurate detail there. Never noticed it before.

    That Rodimus looks cool.


    I doubt it would ever happen, but a goatee-fied Shattered Glass version of that mould would be great!

    SO glad I preordered the crystal Roddy and Optimus set. Now we can finally put to rest the rumor that "only Prime is clear."

    And Unicron continues to impress. I'm feeling the love, Takara.

    Time to pre-order Rodimus/Optimus. Really need to get my sales thread up so that I can hopefully order up Sleep Convoy and Unicron (although I am not as impressed with Unicron in this set of pics).

    Ahh.....the Rodimus and Optimus set looks nice. This is a nice treat for those of you that collect Animated.

    Unicron.....looks a bit strange to me. Still need to see some more pics.

    There was a report/rumor recently that we might be seeing a MP rodimus/hot rod. We were told it was from someone who's sources were usually right.

    But it seems like we were also told this sprang from blacked out images of unicron and two other figures. Does anybody know, are these the formerly blacked out figures? Should this be the end of taking the MP rodimus rumor seriously, or was that a whole other thing that came from somewhere else?

    I'm a bit more interested in the Corpsimus Prime since the trailer is going to be clear. But it's way more than I'd like to pay for a repaint.

    Clear Animated Roddy and Prime is sweet!

    I'm digging Unicrons new color scheme but not so much the remolded head.

    Damn, that clear set of Prime and Rod looks pretty sweet. Price for it at BBTS doesn't seem too bad either. Now if I could just bring myself to buy it I would have my first japanese releases

    MP Convoy sleep mode is TakaraTomy Toy Hobby Market exclusive and the number will be limited to 2010 w/serial number. They will start taking preorder early June (I assume as soon as the site opens again, ATM it is under re-construction). MP Convoy order is limited to 2 per customer.
    Unicron is also exclusive to the store, though the number is not limited, preorder will be closed on 7 July.
