We've got some more Japanese Transformers release news coming to you from the C3X Hobby show! This time out we have some information on the Japanese Movie toy releases. Being released in Japan as "Autobot Alliance", the series all in fact feature small modifications compared to their US releases. Noted variations include:

Sea Spray : his colors are brighter than the US release. In particular the gold is swapped for a more Bumblebee-ish yellow.
Ironhide : gray plastic is used instead of light blue.
Sidearm Sideswipe : As previously reported, there is no flame deco, and the windows are smokey colored.
Elita-1 : contrary to previous reports, Autobot Alliance Elita-1 is not the Arcee mold in her Rotorwash Rumble colors. It is a purple Chromia, with a more screen accurate color scheme than the US release.
Insecticon : As previously reported, Insecticon features a darker, slightly more dull color scheme that is closer to his brief on screen appearance.

Also on show was a display advertising a seven prize draw to be held by lottery through Family Mart stores. The prizes are as follows:

Prize A: Clear Revenge of the Fallen Leader class Optimus Prime
Prize B: Animated Deluxe class Optimus Prime (matte finish, not metallic, no battle damage)
Prize C: Animated Activators Skywarp
Prize D: 1 of 4 Animated EZ collection/Legends (partially clear, looks very cool)
Prize E: 1 of 4 Animated super deformed figure (colored/silver Optimus Prime, colored/Silver Megatron)
Prize F: 1 of 4 Animated cell phone strap (colored/silver Optimus, colored/silver Bumblebee)
Prize G: 1 of 2 Animated glass (Optimus, Bumblebee)

Second Chance prize: mail away Animated Activator Ramjet (requires 2000 yen and 3 ticket of prize E or F or G)

All these prizes were displayed except for Animated Activator Ramjet.

It's a Familymart (a convenience store chain) Exclusive instant lottery that starts in October. 500 yen ($6) per a draw, no blank-lot.

Sounds fun, I can hardly wait (kids here really love this kind of over-the-counter lucky draws).

In Japan release, not only Voyager Battle "Fook" Optimus Prime, also other toys have some changes.

Sea Spray : brighter than US release, G1-toy-ish, sort of cheapie.
Ironhide : gray plastic is used instead of light blue.
Sidearm Sideswipe : no flame deco.
Elita-1 : contrary to rumor, Japanese Elita isn't Arcee mold . It is purple Chromia.
Insecticon : darker color.
Jarodimus
Well, poop. I thought I was going to get out of buying the Takara Elita given that what we thought it was going to be turned out to be the same as the Target-exclusive Arcee. But now I want that one.

I must have those Animated glasses and SD figures.

And, oh man, is the secondary market price on crystal RotF OP going to be high.

Haven't we actually seen the pink Arcee-based test shots in magazines, solicitation images and via stolen chinese test shots?

Thanks tackertackle for the preliminary info. Since I am a Movie competionist I am very interested in getting all the variations of the ROTF Toys. That clear ROTF Leader Prime is definitely going to be as rare as Lucky Draws, so it will be nigh impossible to obtain one. Plus it looks so fragile, so it is risky having one. I wonder why they chose to give Animated Voyager Prime a matte finish. The clear options is still there.

The Voyager OP will be clear for the Wingblade release. (The armor is opaque, though.)

Yes we saw the picture of "Rotorwash Rumble" Arcee as Elita-1.
Perhaps, it was makeshift......or plan must have been changed to reduce cost of making combination pattern doubly
Powersa
Clear Leader Prime? Man.
Ceasar121
Will get the Japanese Sidearm Sideswipe. Looks way better without that Hot Rodish shit.
Sepultron
ALL of these TakTom redecos look MUCH better than their Hasbro counterparts, IMO of course.

Kinda pisses me off.
46+2
well...there goes my chances for clear prime.
Bgrngod
Clear ROTF Leader Prime? Holy shit, that's your $3000 figure for the year right there.
petes2177
Sidearm Sideswipe will be mine!
Obsidian X
Damn. I just recently bought Seaspray for my CHUG-collection and I was just wishing that it was a more of a yellow color on him than that dull golden color. Maybe I'll get another one then.
Deceptigtar
If anyone can get me that skywarp I would be forever grateful!
MidnightBliss
I want that Seaspray!!!
Bovril
OMG... Clear ROTF Leader Prime? That's gotta be a contender for coolest fig ever... only challenged by the clear classics prime w/ clear trailer.

Shame I'll never even get to see one
x BlackMagnus x
Wtf, Elita One and Insecticon look SOOOOO much better.
BlueAngel_Bolt
Clear ROTF prime???!!!!
Sigh.... I have enough leader primes unfortunately...
Both buster and DVD black prime took my wallet for took my wallet for a spin last year
Autovolt 127
Holy Crap!!!!!!

i want that Deluxe Optimus Prime......I've been wanting since 2008 to have one without battle damage.


why did they have to make it an exclusive.


A Clear Leader Priem is cool....but i don't like clear transluscent transformers.
Beastbot X
I REALLY hope this won't be the only way we can get some toy version of Animated Ramjet...
Brooticus
"Prize B: Animated Deluxe class Optimus Prime (matte finish, not metallic, no battle damage)"

Gwaaa! I literally said this afternoon in the previous news comments how much I wanted one of these!
Paxtin
Those chibi TFA figs are hilariously awesome. Especially the Megatron.

Kinda want that Insceticon with the clear wings.
MonkeyBusiness
So, basically, I'm gonna have to get the Japanese Sidearm Sideswipe, Insecticon, and Elita-1 to get decent decos.

Friggin Hasbro.

Damn, sure hope not. I hope there are a decent amount of these made. Would love to extend my ROTF Leader Prime set. C'mon eBay scalpers, be nice to me.....
Smokescreen
I really like that purple Elita-1. Looks so much better than the one Hasbro is giving us.
eagc7
takara gets elita-1 colros right lol, i need to get leader preim waaaaah! (never got any leader priem belive it or no )
Rodimus Mike
I can't believe Hasbro went for those awful colors on Seaspray just to be one-upped by
takara with there genuine G1 colors,now I am gonna get rid of mine so I can order the
way hotter takara one instead.
Batman
Am I destined to never own a regular version of that damn deluxe Prime mold?

TOTALLY agree with you. If I lived in Japan, I'd be able to have a Buster Prime for the same price!
TornadoQuakeX
Ok, what? I see a purple Elita-1. Wtf. I see a G1-accurate Seaspray paintjob. Wtf. I see an all-silver Sidearm Sideswipe without the dumb red flames. Wtf. And I see a deluxe Ironhide and Insecticon with WAY better colors. Wtf.

And Takara continues to best out Hasbro at paintjobs. I'm so jealous!
Paradigm-Shift Prime
Nice clear Prime!
