    Over 50 Tfa figures released by Takara? Interesting. How many did we get over here?

    Ouch. Looks like Takara won't get everything we got.

    Then again, does the 70 or so we got include just the main line or things like Battle Bumpers?

    This is indeed interesting news. Daisuke Kisho and Hiroki Takahashi were in School Rumble, Prince of Tennis and Futari wa Pretty Cure and are from the same seiyuu group STAMEN. To all fans, which japanese voice actors are you hoping for which certain character? An example of mine is Kenta Miyake = Ragnights(Lugnut) and Hiroshi Kamiya = Prowl.

    I wonder if Takara will alter the storyline a bit. They kind of did that w/ Beast Wars. Or if they'll use the terms Cybertrons, Destrons, and Seibertron. I'm personally hoping Takara will make a sequel like it did w/ G1 w/ Headmasters.

    Animated card game... wow. That's a young demographic. I'll trade you some Pokeballs for a Rodimus classic.

    I heard they're using the Western names since the live action movies also did in Japan and they're trying to make Animated in the same vein

    Just you wait. Japanese GEEWUNNERS will be complaining Convoy is named Optimus Prime, and Cybertrons are Autobots and Destrons are Decepticons. LOL!

    Except I think they're calling it Transformers Anime-ated... Normally, I'd call it a typo or a mistranslation, but it's on Takara's website.

    Then again, Cartoon Network's website once said that Ironhide was a Decepticon spy...

    Which means absolutely nothing in regard to the use of American names, because it's been confirmed that that's what they're doing.

    Indeed, it means absolutely nothing at all.

    That would mean a Japanese only sequel will be in development with new original TFA toys released. The results, leaving us english speaking fans in envy.
