    Keiths Fantasy Club CASETTE-01GTO Rhinohorn Evil Version is a clear pink version of the CST-01 Rhinohorn and will come with a clear pink energon cube that's compatible with MP-13 Masterpiece Soundwave. It will be sold for Php 980 (approximately $22) exclusive to GreatToysOnline.com and limited to 500 pieces; 400 pieces will be sold at the Philippine ToyCon 2013 GreatToysOnline.com booth and the remaining 100 will divided among the main GreatToysOnline.com brick and mortar stores. Philippine TOYCON 2013 will be on June 14-16, 2013 at the SM Megatrade Halls, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila, Philippines. This version of the toy will not be made available anywhere else.

    ~This was a huge surprise for me because we rarely get exclusives at our toy conventions here in the Philippines. Kudos to GreatToysOnline.com for pulling this off. I know GreatToysOnline.com ships Internationally but I don't know of they'll offer this on their website.

    Is that different from the Energon Evil Version or the same but with an energon cube?

    Pink in stead of purple, basically its the same color difference as the Dr wu energon cubes.

    Sorry, my screen has always had bad color. I guess they are different:

    So it's 500 pieces, 400 of which are limited to a toy convention in the Philippines? Must be a big toy convention there.

    So besides the original Eagle's TF one, there are now FIVE color variants produced by KFC, red/gold (G1), red/silver (Aces Toy Store), blue/silver (SG), translucent purple and now translucent pink (GTO).

    What other color variants could we see out there? Predacon colors maybe?

    I don't have a problem with different colors of the same small toy at the same time . It just gives the consumer more choice. I can pick the color I like and ignore the rest easily. KFC should be commended for giving us choices. Wouldn't it be nice if Hasbro would just release EVERY Bumblebee repaint for a line at one time on their online store, and you just ordered the one you wanted?

    Since there is actual fiction for the characters coming from KFC's facebook page, I have to wonder if these color variants will be explained. Will Rhinohorn get contaminated with dark energon and become a menace?

    So I found a little more about this pink version. It's on ebay now, and the seller is accepting "best offers". I got one myself for less than anyone is selling the other color variants.

    It also seems to ship in the box for the Justice version, with a sticker added and numbered 1 to 500, but otherwise its packaged like the Justice Version. So I guess this makes it a variant of the Justice version, not the Evil Energon version.

    By 30 colors, you mean 4? Red, blue, clear purple and clear pink. That's it. Were you imagining more? I honestly was hoping for a Black Redeco Clan and Predacon version too.

    Well, red and blue are given because those are the colors Hasbro released the Ramhorn toy in.

    Clear purple is evil energon, making a reference to the TFPrime Terrorcons, and the pink one was a very short run convention exclusive done to match Masterpiece Soundwave's energon cube.

    I prefer to think of it as giving me choices. I can buy one, but I can pick my color. Would you complain if a clothing store offered a shirt you like in 4 different colors?

    I got my pink Rhinohorn this weekend. This ebay sale seems to be the cheapest way of getting it, and you get a free energon cube. The packaging and inserts are the indeed from the Justice Version, with an added sticker on the front of the box saying it's the GTO version of the toy. Very fun.

    I don't, it's just another red one with slightly different details. Rhinohorn is available in 4 colors (red, blue, pink purple), the red has the option of gold or silver weapons, just like G1.

    If by "Predacon" version you mean a Ramhorn-as-Headtrong deco, then, I agree 100% that is a variant I'd snag for sure!
