    Anyone heard any news as to when this is getting a release, and the particulars of the release?

    Wasn't it revealed to be a custom or did I imagine that?

    I am sure it was stated at Botcon that it was not an official product.

    Yeah, no-one can really say with 100% certainty what it is, where it came from or how many are in existence. Maybe we will never know.

    Could have been a lucky draw item for a obscure japanese store; since it does have henkei chrome, maybe with some other more movie TF based lucky draws.

    They have been mixing in Movie exclusives with the Animatedo lucky draws. So its possible a henkei figure was a lucky draw during revenge of the fallens japanese promotions.
    We have a few tfw2005 members in japan who report the lucky draws. So hopefully if "glyph" does get released that way they will report it.

    It's NOT a Custom. It was likely a canceled exclusive like Henkei Convoy Black. I have one, it's beautiful.

    I'm thinking of changing my avatar to it on this site so people stop asking about it. :lol

    I think the Bug Bite repaint is the best.

    The only thing that's certain right now is that all the ones floating around have been stolen from the factory. :)

    *cue discussions about how factory leaks are not "really" stolen*

    So my dream of having one each for Diaclone Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, and Bumper are dashed before I can even nab one.
