    They look like robots the turn into shity looking vehicles. Original G1 vehicles were great these are kinda "puffy" looking. I am digging the idea of getting the pieces and building them like a model. If they come out in the states I might actually get one.

    This reminds me of those Puzz3D Transformers or those BTR (Built to Rule) Lego's type transformers... Smokescreen and Demolisher... from the Armada series

    Honestly, All I see are numbers and question marks. Do you know of a good translation program that I can download to read these sights?

    The pictures I can see fine. I just can't understand what they're saying, and where to go to buy anything....mind you shipping will be expensive

    Yes, unless PC has the double byte character set in OS, pages written in Japanese would show just numbers and question marks.
    How about Google Translate or Bebelfish? It's a shame that those translating programs put out a mess, but at least.. it'll be barely legible in English.

    The Wonder Festival (Won-Fes) is the largest model-kits convention in Japan. Both professional and amateur model makers make a sale exclusive items. This guy is gonna sell 20 to 30 boxes of Wheelie and Powerglide kits this time. (The amount of the product is very limited because those kits are completely handmade.)

    Oh, Won-Fes 2008 will be held on Feb 24th.. next weekend!?
    A robot fanatic who's looking over my shoulder (=my husband) just gave me an advice,
    "If you want to get one from small manufacturers like this, you have to stand in line from the night before."

    I'd love to, but there'd hardly be a chance because the site says Cyclonus was sold out in 10 minutes last time.
    Professional Tenbaiya (Resellers/sclapers) will get it.

    Seems like I'd better try to check it out in Yahoo-Oku (Yahoo-Auction).

    Wow..I don't doubt that for a minute!

    I'd still like a powerglide for sure, and even octane if available. I 'm not a wheelie fan, but if that's all they have it's still cool !

    Don't you like Jizaitoys?

    He's a customizing modeler who builds G1-like models from scratch.
    Classic Ironhide (very red one) now shown next to his prototype in the make is which Takara-Tomy re-released recently. He's just using it as the size reference material.

    Recently, I asked the artist if he could sell/ship those toys internationally, and the reply was as follows.

    (Translated from Japanese) Due to several circumstances (application procedures for a permit for the sale/shipping and transportation cost from Hokkaido Japan), selling those kits on WF (Wonder Festival) semiannually is only and best I can do now. I hope you'll understand these reasons. Thank you.
    Note: WF (Wonder Festival) is the biggest convention for both amateur/professional modelers. On the day, respective copyright holders like Hasbro/Takara-Tomy grant modelers one-day permission to distribute fan-made-toys.

    This year it'll held on 3rd Aug. The weather in Tokyo is intensely hot (this year it feels like way hotter than in Florida!), and last winter, visitors queued up many hours to enter the event like this. So I can't decide yet whether I'll go or not..
