    wow cool

    I think their more like gift cars since I've had a few gift cards in the past with the bank logos on them before the idea being that you can use them in a few stores. but if they are bank cards I'd sure as hell like to open and account (tho I'd never use it and most likely close it not long after I'd got my minicon and card....)

    The molds are, though these here appear to have new colors/paint apps to them.

    Yes, it's Credit Card. and the bottom line is -

    Exclusive Figure: Gentei! Gentei! Strafe (Cyclonus redeco)
    will become available thru Transformers Basecamp.

    Exclusive free Microns: Sling(Slingshot - jet) OR Vorter(Vortex - chopper)
    Sling is for who ordered Autobots card, Vorter is for Decepticon. while supplies last.

    Access right for "Transformers Basecamp"
    members-only fan site with browser-based game? not sure right now...

    Original Quo Card - a kind of prepaid gift card in japan. amount is 500 yen.

    Must. See. Strafe.

    Definitely more attention grabbing than the new Microns themselves! I don't think Tomy's even used all the Universe Mini-Cons for promotions yet, so it's surprising to see these two used again, but I'm not positive about that.

    Strafe:
    ????????????????????????

    And yeah... The other site didn't mention Quo Cards - I'm not too familiar with them... Anyone know how one goes about applying for these? God knows, I already abuse my friends too much as is, but Strafe may just be a must-have.

    EDIT:
    The site lists the 500Y Quo cards separately from the Microns and Strafe as a "present" - are we sure the Quo cards aren't separate premiums?

    EDIT 2:

    Yeah, I should learn to read before I post. These are new Pocket Cards. For applying for one of these two cards, you can enter the three campaigns. If you get a Destron card, you get a 500Y Quo card and a Micron, etc... Once you get your card, you can access Transformers Base Camp, which is a new Fan Site Takara's putting together. Once you have access to that site, you can buy Strafe from it.

    So he's sort of a Fan Club exclusive for Japan... Not sure how the cards are involved - Pocket Card does Credit cards, and these seem to be Credit Cards... But they're also sort of membership cards? Go figure...

    Can't say the Cyclonus /Strafe repaint excites me at all. Other than the fact they're both Cybertronian planes they look nothing alike.:lol
