    I think its some kind of repaint or soemthing because BB costs 3800, more than the average Deluxe class toy. I assume Transscanning Prime is a clear Voyager Prime

    It would be even cooler if they were like, half clear, half color, with some blue spray in between.... like they were in the process of scanning a car. Although it would look wierd in robot mode.

    Information from Autobase Aichi.

    Japanese Allspark figures have “Allspark cube”.
    Trans Scanning figures can transform and become protoform by armor.

    What? If they come with a convincing Allspark Cube that's the right size for use with action figures, I'll, I'LL. . .I'll probably buy one or two of them, so I can have a Cube that fits my action figures.

    Black arcee? Wonder which mold, scout or deluxe. Since I already have a slew of the scout molds in various colors, what's one more?!

    Judging by the price, I'm going to assume that's the deluxe

    And wtf on the jp exclusives, we get nothing but crappy repaints but they get (possibly)nifty snap on armor and in package Allspark cubes? D=

    The Black Arcee is the same price as Stockade, so I would think that means the deluxe will be the repaint. I'll reserve comment until I see the pictures, but that robot mode isn't the first one I'd pick to have a black repaint. But again, I'll wait until some pictures surface.

    Where does it say the Trans-Scanning figures are Japanese/TakaraTomy exclusives?

    If they're part of the japanese mainline, then its likely they'll be released by Hasbro anyway, given nearly every single Movie toy they've released (barring store exclusives) have been the same as US versions.

    Takara rarely makes non-collector mainline new toolings for its own market these days. Most of the Transformers they engineer are for Hasbro, and only a few are ever for themselves, like MP Megs.

    I just might have to get a Japanese Allspark Battles release so I can have an Allspark for my collection. I've not preordered Incinerator yet, so he'll do.

    Trans-scanning sound cool, I'll have to see if they get a US release (odds are: yes)

    Gotta see pics first, but the Trans-Scanning sound interesting.

    It's also cool that there's going to be officially produced Allspark props for the toys by Hasbro/TakTomy.

    Guess I'll be ordering one of the Japanese releases for the Allspark. :D

    Arcee doesn't need new colors, she needs a new HEAD. :/
