    So, tomorrow is the day when the Wonder Festival 2008 Summer is going to be held in Japan.

    According to TFormers, the Black version of Henkei Convoy is going to be available there.

    Although they currently list the date as "October 3". Bwuh?
    TakaraTomy TF Release Dates: Rest of 2008 - Transformers Toys, News & Reviews - TFormers.com

    Has this thing ever actually been confirmed by anyone other than TFormers? They also claim he was "mentioned at BotCon 2008".

    Does anyone here know of any (preferably Japanese) source that is not TFormers or DragonX76's interesting-mumblings-on-the-interwebs-won't-tell-you-where bullshit which confirm the existence of this toy and its purpose?

    Man, if I had a question like that, I would ask... well, you! Haha

    I have no clue. It would be a major disappointment to fans who passed on SDCC for this guy if he doesn't come out.

    Strange workings indeed...

    According to some posts over at the Allspark, Hasbro confirmed at BotCon that this wasn't theirs...

    But nothing solid on the "when"s and "how"s of a possible Takara release thus far.

    I'm sure it exists on Takara's end, but maybe as an idea, not a set exclusive. He was mentioned at the announcement panel when I was there. Archer said something like, here's Nemesis Prime, it doesn't have the red windows. If he even acknowledged it, it means it must exist at some stage.

    According to tfarchive.com (TFArchive - Transformers Toys all the way at the bottom) it supposedly comes out tomorrow, i'm skeptical, though, and don't know what their source for that is. I would like it to come out though as it looks better than SDCC Nemesis Prime.

    Nevermore is the News Mod at tfarchive.com so it's quite likely he put it there himself :) 

    I am not saying that the toy will never come out, but not this Wonderfestival. It's not listed according to Autobase Aichi.

    Yes, but the only source is TFormers, and they're nothing I would call "reliable" if they're the only source for mysteriously-dropped-out-of-the-sky information.

    That is my own list, and my only source was TFormers. Which is why I've started this thread in the first place.

    You mean this one? Yeah, saw that too. So, Nakas is pretty much in the dark about it. If anyone should know, it'd be him, which means TFormers either have super-secret access to ELITE inside information, or someone over there has pulled it out of his shiny ass.

    Yup, I have heard nothing of this release from my import shops either. He's a much well kept secret as compared to that crystal Optimus! But my gut feel is that if TakaraTomy release him, it will be in this colours.

    I hope they do. I didn't get the SDCC one, and I don't want to.

    Forest green legs & blue windows... :redface2: 

    Forget that it's not "true to character fanboy whining".

    It's fugly.

    You know... I'd be upset about this, except... Well - It's going to be more expensive than SDCC Nemy.

    Enh. I think I've given up on trying to get Crystal and Black Henkei Convoy pre-emptively until next time I'm in Japan. Prices here are always WAY too high.
