Henkei Red Alert and Smokescreen are now out in Japan. HLJ is processing them for shipping.
Nice! Looks like mine are shipped, I have this note in my account "This order has just shipped. You should receive a shipping notice shortly." Not only that, but they combined them with my most recent order that I placed earlier this week! Now I double can't wait
Yep, just found these two at Asobit "C" (Laox in Akihabara). Interestingly there were no signs of them at Yodabashi Camera in Akihabara, and there is usually a pallet full of the new figures when they are released.
Smokescreen looks to actually have the lighter blue color afterall.
have you opened them? red alert has a new lightbar, but does that mean he doesnt have the engine block like sideswipe and sunstreaker?
Lambor (Sideswipe) didn't have the engine block in Japan, so I doubt Alert has it.
There is no engine block. However, you can pivot the lightbar 360 degrees, so you can give him a little jet pack in robot mode.
I remember in the interview with the Classics/Henkei designers last month, that Sideswipe (U.S. version) was not supposed to have the Engine block, but to their surprise, he did.
Come on BBTS and get your order in. I want my Alert!!!
I just love the box art. It looks more detailed than the previous drawings
Thanks for the pic, chuckcjc! 1890 Yen is a great price. I didn't see any just-released Henkei for that little when I was in Tokyo.
Alert looks great -- can't wait for him to get here!
Nice! I want my Red Alert! He's a must to compliment Inferno!
i got my preorder in @ robot kingdom yesterday, can't wait! 2 of my favorite G1ers!!! (i'm an 85 mark, i don't know why ~ Jetfire, Ramjet, Smokescreen, Red Alert, Astrotrain, all my favorites)
oh, interesting. i didn't know that before...
Slightly different paint applications? I don't think the person who made the article knows what both the US and Japan version of Smokescreen look like as they are completely different in like every way possible. They're more different than just about every Universe/Classic to Henkei figures, comparable to figures like Megatron & Astrotrain who are completely different as well.
Plus there isn't a Deluxe Universe Red Alert to compare the Henkei to, but I'd bet he'd be a lot different too with red limbs like the original toy.
Fantastic, I can't wait for mine to get here!
Awesome! Can't wait for mine to arrive.
i'm really glad they included it with Sideswipe, since it was actually painted and i was able to give his to Sunstreaker
Sweet! I want both! About how much is 1890 yen in dollars?
