"Sons of Cybertron" - Official Images from TakaraTomy's website

Another addition to TakaraTomy's 2010 Transformers campaign has appeared on their website; simply titled "Sons of Cybertron".

"Sons of Cybertron" is the two-pack release of Optimus Prime and Rodimus figures done in clear plastic "crystal" forms. Previously, we've seen glimpses of this set, and now we get a look at the official images.

But that's not all. It turns out that there are in fact two different versions. One that uses Animated figures, and a second that uses Classics/Henkei figures.

 The Animated set contains the Deluxe Class Optimus Prime figure from the "Battle Begins" two-pack with Megatron, and the Deluxe Class Rodimus Minor (simply called "Rodimus" here).

The Henkei set contains the Deluxe Class Classics Optimus Prime figure for mthe "Ultimate Battle" two-pack with Megatron (I'm sensing a pattern here :P) and the Henkei Hot Rodimus (again, called "Rodimus" here) figure.

Surprisingly enough though, the Classics/Henkei Optimus figure is not called "Convoy" here and is instead called "Optimus Prime" like his Movie and Animated counterparts.

I know this is a stupid question but does anyone know what the 1 point thing stands for?

They're Robot Points needed for the Japanese customers to purchase these figures the normal way.

The other way is to do what everyone else does: buy them from an online retailer who has them in stock, without the necessity of Robot Points.

The funny thing is that the small classics prime was never sold in Japan. The Hasbro Toyshop version of him and the other three figures looked like they should've been released in Japan cuz of their boxes but weren't. So its interesting that that they're using the figure for a clear version since they only use the new classics/universe molds for the henkei line, but this particular mold was never actually in the Henkei line.
Its also funny how anyone with a Botcon Rodimus will pretty much have a Black/Clear Rodimus set (although charachter wise instead of a formerly evil Rodimus clone that person would instead have a alt Dimension Hot Rod) So much irony
