After closer inspection, it is revealed that the catalog, is a comic featuring some of the Henkei toy line characters/toys. A very smart move by Takara Tomy to market and promote its products. It has a grimlock henkei collectible card as well. Alot of novelty indeed compared to the Transformers classic packaging. It is really more than meets the eyes.

Overall the package looks cheap but it has more to offer than its cousin product line; which is a comic and collectible card is provided. Making this toy playable as well appeals to adult collector like myself. Though it is slightly more expensive than its cousin product line.
