By way of Autobase Aichi and masterfileblog (and 2005 boards staff member SydneyY) we have some information for you regarding an upcoming contest for Japanese Transformers fans. From 11 August, there will be downloadable base drawings to be colored in from TV Aichi
, Avex DVD official page
and TakaraTomy's own site.
Entrants will have a choice of characters to color, and can pick one of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Bulkhead, Ratchet, Arcee, Megatron and Starscream. The two grand prize winners will receive the toy of the Transformer they colored in the color scheme that they chose - in other words, the top prizes will be some of the rarest of the rare in terms of Lucky Draw Transformers, the coloring contest prize toys. Takara ran a contest like this twice before in the past, for Galaxy Force
and for the Robot Masters
For non-Japan residents, at least the base drawings will give all the budding colorists among us a chance to hone their skills.
