    I'm glad you guys are going after the backissues. That is the best source for this information. You should also look into the Black Fire Convoy number. It seems really off to me judging by the low availability. Just judging by the low availability, I'm guessing there couldn't have been more than 100 of those.

    Here are links to Yahoo Japan searches for the magazines. Yahoo Japan is your best bet IMHO.

    TV Magazine search:

    Usually the auction title has both the year and the number of the month (e.g., 2 = February). Give me a PM if you need any help sorting through them. I recommend buying single auctions for multiple issues or multiple auctions from one seller, since that will cut down on the proxy fees from your middleman service (e.g. Celga, Rinkya, etc.). Also, have them shipped surface mail, otherwise the shipping cost will be ridiculously high.

    Thanks Might Gaine, we'll take a look at those links.

    The Black Fire Convoy is a strange toy. There use to be a lot on Yahoo Japan. Especially in 2006 and early 2007.

    The information on LuckyDrawTransformers.com mainly comes from Rik Ruffs "MyKoolToys", MyKoolToys Scroll down to the "SUPER FIRE CONVOY [Black Version]" section as well as the Black God Fire Convoy. Which we managed to match up with some other sources, but we can't remember where. Looking at the page, the figures are mess, so we're going to try to find out old notes and re-check over the next day when we'll look to clean up a lot of that sites information.

    Edit
    Placed an order now for almost 3 years worth of TV Magazine and TV Boy, 18 months of Hyper Hobby and the December 2007 issue of TV Magazine which should have an all-important draw in it

    EDIT 24/7/08
    Snakas confirms over 300 Black Fire Convoys

    The color selection looks awful.
    (It kid's design so I can't blame it.)

    The only thing is good its looks better than China KO.

    I love it! Imagine how good the kid feels. When I was a kid all I ever won in colouring contests were stuffed toys...

    Bleh, it's so ugly I don't even want it. Why don't they just let people order a customer colored one for like 100 dollars? I'd be all over that.

    Are you serious, what would be the point? Get one of the great customizers on here to do one for you if all you want is a repaint.

    I find it interesting that nobody over the age of 6 seems to have entered submissions to the coloring contest... Odd.
