RUMOR: New Asia-Exclusive Takara Tomy Transformers Toys

{mosimage}Toy shops in Malaysia have started sending out solicitations for a number of Asia-exclusive Takara Tomy Transformers items. The list goes like this:

  1. Platinum Edition Ultra Magnus
  2. Platinum Edition Grimlock Vs Bruticus
  3. Platinum Edition Classic Predaking
  4. Platinum Edition CNY (Chinese New Year) RID Ultra Magnus
  5. Platinum Edition CNY Supreme Starscream
  6. ACG HK Con Metroplex
  7. Cybertron Con Shockwave's Lab
  8. Cybertron Con Beast Hunters Optimus Prime

The first item is probably the Ultra Magnus with the Forge of Solus we saw at Toy Fair. Grimlock Vs Bruticus are probably the Fall of Cybertron versions. Classic Predaking is listed with the hefty price tag of RM549.90, which leads us to believe it to be a reissue of Generation 1 Predaking. RID Ultra Magnus and Supreme Starscream should be reissues from Robots in Disguise and Cybertron. ACG HK is the Anime-Comic-Game fair held annually in Hong Kong and Cybertron Con is an Asian Transformers convention, so the items are likely exclusive to those conventions.

For the moment, take this list with a pinch of salt. We will bring you more updates as they are made available.

For now, you can discuss these rumored items in our forums.

**UPDATE** Marcelo Matere has taken to Twitter and posted that he worked on some of the art for these releases.
