    From Autobase Aichi and details are from masterfileblog
    From 11th August, there will be downloadable base drawing to be coloured in from TV Aichi, DVD official page and TakaraTomy site.
    The entrants can pick one character from Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Bulkhead Ratchet, Arcee, Megatron and Starscream.

    The winner will receive the TF figure in the colour scheme they designed, and there will be 2 winners of this grand prize.
    The entry is most likely limited to the residents of Japan. There are other prizes to be won but it is yet to be announced.

    If anyone has a mailing address in Japan, why not give it a go? :)  The contest starts from 11th August and closes on 15th September.

    IIRC Galaxy Force and Robot Masters had similar contests. Only one custom colour Galaxy Convoy figure exisits from what I know of, but according to Autobase Aichi, Robot Masters custom coloured Convoy (known as crayola Convoy) was also available at some Kodansha events.

    I sometimes wonder what happened to the custom coloured, one in the world Galaxy Convoy. Did it ever surface in a secondary market?

    It's quite possible :lol

    I think that Robotmaster coloring contest was an insult to both collectors and kids. There must have been people who actually put effort into creating an original, visually dynamic color scheme, and picking this Prime as the winner must have been a real slap in the face to them. That thing was more like an Unlucky Draw.

    I think its cool to have an actual kid win the coloring contest, cause after all, these are toys aimed at kids, and its nice to see the judges of the contest realizing that. I actually enjoy the wacky colors.

    From the context of masterfileblog text, this contest seems to be open to both adult and kids. Since there are two winners, I hope one for kids and the other for adults :) 

    I like wacky ones, too :D

    ^ What Galvatron Rage said haha

    I wonder if some kid will bust out a bunch of Copics or something and go all out in coloring their entry. Either that, or PhotoShop.

    Contests of this sort should award prizes to candidates in different age brackets

    Maybe it's just me being me, but couldn't you just cut out the middleman and mod an actual figure yourself to your liking? I personally aim for show accuracy and super detail, but you'd be getting your design, and it'd technically be "rarest of the rare" seeing as you hold the only one in existence. It's just how I see it. Still a cool contest.

    "and it will be some crappy 5 year old kids color scheme that dont make any sense that will win." is what my brain was trying to say before I interrupted it and said making your own was much more fun and satisfying. Agreed. But it does make sense if the plot was Bumblebee going undercover by being repainted that way, which admittedly was a good disguise. No autobot would EVER look THAT crappy.....right?
