TakaraTomy has posted up images of two upcoming items exclusive to the Tokyo Toy Show this year. First up is a repaint of Transformers Animated Prowl as Elite Guard member. Second is a repaint of both Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Mindwipe and Skystalker as Dreadwind and Smokescreen respectively.

It is being said in our discussion thread that these will be available at the Tokyo Toy Show in limited numbers, and that any left over will most likely be sold through e-hobby as a web exclusive.

nice, is that prowl an exclusive or mass release?
Gen. Hospital
Man, I want Dreadwind/Smokscreen.

EDIT: Oops, I guess that's supposed to be; Man, I want Dreadwind/Smokejumper.

I'm not sure, but evidently due to his new paint job he lost the ability to jump or have rhythm.

I do to. I love all that blue. Doesn't hurt that those are two of some of the best (not necessarily THE best) molds to come from the ROTF line either.

Interesting choice for a Mindwipe repaint. Good to see a Skystalker repaint in the same paint theme, but the name Smokescreen doesn't fit it, imho. If Hasbro releases a similar repaint of Mindwipe, I might get it to turn into Soundwave (all it really needs is a new head and some yellow and purple accents).

Elite Guard Prowl looks nice. It's not likely to happen, but a release of that repaint in the Generations line would be cool, and probably something I would buy.
Autobot Burnout
That EG Prowl looks a lot like the original color concept of the character, though I'm a little surprised it's the original version with the traffic light of uselessness instead of the Samurai Armor (or maybe the Jap. Animated series hasn't gotten to that point yet).

Dreadwind and Smokescreen, while a brilliant use of those two figures, the blue seems to be overly blinding. I hope that's a PS job.
Jarodimus
That's a gorgeous color on the jets, but they need some yellow accents to better evoke Dreadwing and Smokescreen.

Once again: Must. Have. Prowl. If anybody sees a pre-order or will be able to get hold of one, please PM me!
Fort Max
Damn, I thought the show had actually started.

Do you realize what it's homaging? Any other name would be inaccurate.
Deceptigtar
cant wait to get that dreadwind and smokescreen.

that little dino droid is sweet too!

Available for purchase at Toy Show. 2 per person.
Left overs will be selling at e-hobby as web exclusive. 1 per person. For web purchase payments only money orders will be accepted.
Don't know if TakaraTomy Asia will have it or not.
TFareCool
Oh man i really want the dreadwind/smokescreen. So perfect for the type of thing. Beautiful colors too.
zell583
i think the that prowl is ok but i would rather see that done with samurai prowl though.

It is a TECOLOGY Tomica Mitsubishi i-MiEV command car from the fire department. It has a mini power generator and need no battery to run. Lights flashes as well.
Not Transformer.
Angelwave
That Dreadwing/Smokescreen set is beyond nice. I really wouldn't mind getting my hands on that set.

Ditto. I absolutely love the way that looks.
Nightrain
I want that little red Miev.
Poho
is it just because they're in japanese? or are japanese sites really strange?
me!!
change dreadwing to "soundwave" and "smokescreen" to ""rumble"" hahaha....
Tekkaman Blade
It's white are we sure this isn't the ghost version?(Kidding)
Chaos Convoy
The names are DreadwinG and Smokescreen. It's got a G, people.
VE Telus
The useless traffic light accessory is really a letdown. The Samurai mold would have done this repaint justice.

That Prowl is Nice! A G1-homage paintjob would have been even sweeter but nevertheless, I'm still gonna try to hunt one down... *wishful thinking*
Smasher
Hasbro has gotta release that Mindwipe repaint as Sounwave over here.

And Prowl is awesome.
It's a good thing that he comes with an Elite Guard traffic light, too.

Are you joking?
How is a White and Black Prowl complete with a red helmet crest not a G1 homage?
Maloknazh
Damn I love that blue. Both of those dudes look kickass
Arcee 69
I'm glad it's not really Dreadwind. If it was in G1 Dreadwind colors I would have to buy it. But since it's in the crappy G2 colors & can just laugh it at, laugh at all the people who are gonna waste money on it & click off.
Nerdicon
It should have been in sunstorm colors... But I never got mindwipe and I welcome all colors of Skystalker
Viewfinder
That is the Prowl we should have gotten in the first place.

I was upset when I first saw the concept art for him because that's how I would have liked to see him in the show.

Now that this version of him is coming out I want it, but I'm upset once again because he will be an exclusive.

Hopefully he gets released in the US, but I highly doubt it.

Oh well I guess it wasn't meant to be.
Lion
That prowl is cool
usually I don't have a big problem when a name is redesignated, but I'm having a hard time with smokescreen. I like the concept, call it bb and starscream.
Th0r4z1n3
that EG Prowl is full of win

Hmm. I thought the repaint was an homage to Gigant Bomb and Smokesniper. At least that's who I thought of them as when the RotF figures were first shown.
Bern
Oh...my...GOD....


G2 Dreadwing & Smokescreen
GNX 0014 Purity
The Dread Wing looks cool but the Prowl doesn't win it for me
Trailbreaker77
I would love to get a Prowl but with it being an exclusive and overseas I don't doubt it will have a higher price tag then what I am willing to pay.
CZ Hazard
Holy shit, a new animated figure, and the colour scheme looks to be based on early designs. Nice!

Dreadwing & Smokescreen

vs.

Gigant Bomb & Smokesniper

Compare those to the new images.

Yellow in place of red on the Mindwipe/Skystalker repaints would be homaging Robotmasters Gigant Bomb & Smokesniper, not G2 Dreadwing & Smokescreen. There's no yellow on G2 DW/SS.
Yaujta
Ah, okay. Makes sense now.
Bovril
Urgh. Nasty blue repaint of a figure that was already gorgeous yet failed to release in the UK...

Collecting transformers in the UK is such a joke, I don't know why I bother.
kamtimus_prime
I like the repaint of Prowl but I don't like the gold on it. Maybe they should have gone with Black the add some white on his shoulders to break up the all black arms.

The Mindwipe repaint should have been named Scourge
Wadeledge
Urgh want the blue Skystalker so bad...that thing is gonna go for big bucks online tho...
flywheels
I like the Mindwipe/Skystalker redecos, but the price is a bit prohibitive for me...

And at the end of the commercial didn't it seem that the Decepticons just killed those two Autobots and were now going to kill the kid?

I remember thinking that CG was awesome back in the day though.
Dinobot Nuva
So many people not getting the Smokescreen/Dreadwing homage makes me very sad
