    From Amazon JP.

    The image is photoshop of a stock image of the Vibrant Red version but it gives us a first look at the planned color scheme.

    Looks like it's actually Black Convoy rather than just Convoy in black as the product name would suggest.

    June release. 4,725yen.

    Not really green. It's actually teal which is the right color for the Black Convoy/aka Scourge look that they are going for.

    I think the black color is not black enough, unless the final product will differ

    Remember that the image is just photoshopped. The final product will most definitely be darker in color.

    I hope this isn't final because I love Nemesis repaints but this one is to light.

    I don't think we have to worry about the color. Like I said earlier, the image is photoshopped to give an idea of the color scheme. As the product is licensed and strictly supervised by Nissan, there is no way they will let TakaraTomy release this figure if it doesn't closely enough resemble the actual color of the GT-R in Super Black.

    That said, I'll be giving this one a miss like I have with the color variants of GT-R Convoy and Z Megatron. I just need one of each character in their classic color scheme. I wonder if TakaraTomy will also milk the Fairlady Z mold and release a black version of it further down the line.

    *Sigh* I REALLY hate TakaraTomy and their brilliant repaint ideas.

    *Waits 'til Super Black Convoy gets released*

    Well, I've got Silver Convoy shipping from BBTS and Silver Megatron is on preorder. I passed on the traditional Convoy colors because I'm not going to use mine as the intended character, but this Black Convoy/Scourge/Nemesis Prime colored version will be mine... oh yes...

    If this third color variant sells well, I suppose Takaratomy might be tempted to tap the GT-R mold again and release a White Pearl version as Ultra Magnus.

    Not exactly what I was expecting, but cool. I still like the silver one more though.
