    As far as I know it's been cancelled by the looks of it sadly, no further news has been said of it. There was a picture somewhere someone had of it being one of the promotions for japanese conveniant stores that was crossed out on the list.

    What are you talking about? First you say there is no such thing, then you say it's been released?

    Maybe he was referring the Amazon Black Optimus redeco from RotF? That was my guess.

    That one has nothing to do with Jetwing at all, and DA 28 is not even black or again not a jetwing. Who knows what he's talking about.

    Yes that black jetwing prime has been canceled, what did you mean it has been released? Are you talking about a diffrent black repaint?

    The Black Jetwing Optimus was going to be a campaign/store exclusive like the Family Mart stuff (clear RotF Leader Optimus, Animated Fast Action Battler (is that what those were called?) Skywarp, and Deluxe Optimus) but that didn't happen.

    Black Jetwing Optimus still showed up on a release list in Malaysia, so maybe he is still coming out in other Asian countries but not in Japan.

    The above link has the listing.

    So how would any other place get a (JAPAN CONVENIENT STORE CAMPAIGN EXCLUSIVE) when it wouldn't come out to Japan, it just doesn't make sense. The picture I saw from awhile ago had it crossed out as in it was cancelled.

    It obviously wouldn't be a campaign exclusive any more, and just not available in Japan. Much like Jet Powered Optimus & Jetfire 2 Pack (made by TakaraTomy but not available in Japan).

    The thing with that is that that combo pack was never planned to be a promotional item, this black jetwing has no retail price and is supposed to be a raffle sort of thing.

    It has a price in the link I provided above. So whether or not it comes out, it was solicited to be released in Malaysia at the very least.
