Peaugh & GenZhao have teamed up give us a video review on the possibly cancelled Henkei Black Convoy! This figure was highly anticipated, and sadly we haven’t heard much about plans for it’s sale at future shows. With colors highly reminiscent of Nucleon Quest Convoy, as well as Black Convoy/Nemesis Prime/Scourge, this is one Convoy repaint that we hope to see go on sale in the future.
Japanese online vendor eHobby has also updated their site with pre-order pages for the recently revealed Henkei Minibots sets. The C-18 Minibots Attack Team will include Beachcomber, Brawn, and Cliffjumper. Previous images indicated that Bumblebee would be included with the set, but a repaint has apparently been chosen instead. As previously reported, the C-19 Minibots Spy Team will include Wheelie, Cosmos, and Warpath. The pre-order pages insinuate that the figures will also receive more cartoon accurate paint decos that the Universe releases of these figures. Both sets are due for a March 2009 release.

Japanese online retailer AmiAmi have posted new pictures on the pre-order pages for several upcoming Transformers figures from TakaraTomy. The Henkei C-17 Hot Rod pre-order page includes larger resolution images of those reported last week, but also provides the first shot of Mini-Con Jolt utilizing his PowerLinx ability with Hot Rod. Like C-17 Hot Shot, the C-16 Dinobot pre-order page provides high resolution images of those reported last week. However, a new image also confirms that the missile as part of the tail launcher can be held in the other hand as Dinobot’s sword. The site also has new images of the Disney Label Micky Mouse Transformer prototype. All of these new images can be seen by clicking on the image to the left.
