    From the releases I have received, C-07 is Sunstreaker and C-08 would be prowl.

    Had a feeling at least one of them would be a universe classics. Thought the other one would be Cliffjumper.

    The Universe versions are scheduled for August, the BBTS Henkei preorders cite a September release. I like the timing, I'll be able to compare paint differences and get what I like better!

    I wonder if they will chrome certain parts on them like the other Henkei or change any paint to make them stand out a bit more.

    Chromed-up engine on Sunstreaker? Chrome light rack and Japanese police deco on Prowl?

    Hmmm...

    I bet we'll be able to get a red Powerglide after all.

    The Henkei line does not seem to incorporate repaints, a significant departure for Takara.

    Wonder which company will produce a Sideswipe first?

    Hmm If they chrome up Sunstreaker's engine, I'll get one. That's a worthy use of chrome (unlike, for instance, a bit of Grimlock's neck. I mean really. WTF).

    Hoping for a Henkei Thundercracker...that would be a nice "thanks" for Takara (though I'm sure those who have the Botcon version would be ill about it.)

    Nice call!

    Glad these will be release so close to the Hasbro. Thanks for the news! This is going to save a lot of us some money!

    Sure would like a Cliffjumper though.

    Still hoping they release Cliffjumper. I'd like one without silver flames & painted headlights.

    Hmm, I guess I'll have to wait for comparison pics of the two now. A red Powerglide would be sweet.
