    Japanese online store Amenbo has put up a pre-order for a full sized RX-8 patrol car Autorooper and mini Atari set. This set is scheduled for Dec release at the retail price of 6,500yen.

    http://www.amenbo.com/cgi-bin/list/toys/tf/new2-e.cgi (look for the one with the image which says "Now Printing!")


    Singapore toy store U-Toys has also put up a pre-order for this set.

    With the Ohshima Yuki Figure collection Melissa set (large PVC Melissa and mini Dodge Ram Convoy) being released in Nov, it seems TakaraTomy are going to do 2 versions of every KissPlayers figure. I think we can expect a large Xiao Xiao and mini Hot Rod set next year.

    I assume by "full-sized" you mean the 1:24 scale, right? Otherwise Fortress Maximus finally has some serious competition.

    I might have to buy this kissplay product.

    Eww! I feel all dirty.

    I'd be happiest if I could buy a 1:24 Autolooper packed with the WST Autolooper, but I'll take this instead...

    I wonder how they will spell his name in English on the packaging. Autolooper, Autorooper or Autrooper?

    wow, if it looks like that photoshopped pic, that's one hot figure! won't be getting it though, I don't see how it would fit into my bt/alt character lineup, but it still looks REAL nice. since this is the first of the kiss-play's that takara previously released under the bt line, I wonder if they'll make it plastic or die-cast. no, not beating a dead horse, just an observation.

    Yeah, the first Alt/BT/KISS Protectobot. And likely the only one. Very nice.

    Hmm... is it just me or does the photoshopped image not have the redesigned head from the manga?

    If I were to guess, I'd say U-Toys photoshopped a photo of Meister without Takara's involvement. Hence, no access to a fully-scaled Autrooper head sculpt.

    Personally, I'd prefer if it was fudged into AutoTrooper.

    So, mini-AltPrime? Neat.

    I hope the actual toy ends up with chrome wheels. They would look great on that deco.

    wait... mini dodge ram convoy? sounds cool, but I'm worried they're just going to repaint the spychanger truck.

    I'm personally really hoping for Autolooper, but I know I'm bound to be disappointed. :( 

    In other news. WOW. :eek:  This is almost unprecedented. A completely made up character in the land of Alts/BTs/KPs. It's definitely new for TakTomy! Sign me up. More Autolooper for me = WIN! :thumb
