    Details on iPod Convoy, Soundwave, and mention of a Frenzy/Rumble headphone. And in this large pic, is that a shoe Convoy on the far left?

    Also shows the BW line to be nothing but detailed repaints.

    UPDATE: (by Joe Moore)
    Autobase Aichi has posted prices and dates for some of the items:

    Convoy playing iPod Speaker July 15750 Yen
    Soundwave Playing audio player July 10500 Yen
    Frenzy & Rumble playing earphone July 3150 Yen

    This is

    So what is generating all these new product ideas? Is it the movie picking up momemtum that is creating all these wonderful and oh so inspiring ideas! Rumble and Frenzy headphone are an awesome idea...especially if they work, and you have rumble on one ear and frenzy on the other! Either 2007 is the real year for Transformers or I am just going cookoo for every pre order that comes out! Whats next I ask you...a ravage belt clip...a shockwave paintball gun...maybe even a real Reflector digital camera!

    Is there anything interesting about Soundwave or any new pics (save for the possiblity of the headphones? Couldn't see anything.

    Shoe Convoy looks like a terrible idea nicely executed. Nice novelty, but not something I'd actually pay to own.

    Well that's the sports side of Takaras "Music and Sports philoshpy" revealed.

    Strange yes but interesting because of it.

    My thoughts on that exactly. I just can't see the point of buying that. Wonder if he comes in different sizes and you can actually "ware" him? o_0?

    I may hold on to the preorder. Maybe... :/

    The in-package BW Megs next to Cheetor is the Robotmaster.

    Oh and aren't those the robot master leaders in the BW display? Too bad they didn't give any of the BW new head sculpts (or I would have gotten them for sure)

    Hopefully, Black Arachnia's colours will be cartoon accurate. So much for any hope of new molds - kinda pricey for re-painted deluxe figures, sheesh!

    Holy hell.

    This year is going to be mind numbingly awesome for Transformers.

    I swear, I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around it. My head might just explode....

    Too bad Dinobot and Blackarachnia's robot heads aren't visible. They needed new heads more than any of the others.

    Cohrada and Archadis were out of left field though.

    Check out Beast Covoy's hands-they're different. Megatron doesn't seem to have a water squirter in his mouth either. I wouldn't say these are just simple repaints till we get a full look at them.

    They look like repaints from the robotmasters line Takara did a few years ago. The mold on convoy looks the same as the one I have here, incl the hands and the 'launchers' on his back.

    Preorder for the 8 figure boxset and loose figs cancelled, sorry Joel. I did preorder the set with the repainted RM Primal/Megs though, they look gorgeous!
