2005 Boards member Masabon has shared with us some in hand images of the confirmed Japan-only Dark of the Moon Air Raid. The back of the packaging lacks the Hasbro branding, which is a very strong indication that this Revenge of the Fallen Thrust remold with added MechTech points is a Japan exclusive release. He’s a pretty sharp looking Autobot with three MechTech weapon points – one on the back of the jet which becomes his right arm in robot mode, and two beneath the wings. Masabon has also provided us with a copy of Air Raid’s bio, complete with an unfortunate typo from Takara-Tomy:Airlaid is one of the most skillful soldiers among Autobots. He prefers to fly into the middle of the enemy rather than shoot-out from a distance. His technique for firefighting breaks enemy lines and finds a way out for victory.
Additionally, Masabon confirms that the golden MechTech weapons promotion at Toys R Us Japan is limited to 10,000 pieces, and that each Toys R Us has 100 pieces in stock.
