    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 :D

    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.

    Good.

    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.

    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!

    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. :crazy:  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.

    i'm really glad they included it with Sideswipe, since it was actually painted and i was able to give his to Sunstreaker :)
