Japanese Transformers Autobot Alliance Altered Decos and Family Mart Lottery Draws

20100828175627900

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).
