TF08 - Transformers In China • View topic - 2008.10.2 new toys
Due out October 23rd.
Still luvin' the artwork (it's a pity this was never done for Classics). I can't wait to see scans of the comic. But... uh... where are Sideswipe's turbochargers? I always thought they were omitted from the stock photos by accident. Please tell me they're not left out entirely.
That artwork is sweet
Garbage these are coming out to fast I can not keep up. The images are not working for me guess I will check back later.
Man, Japanese boxes just look so busy. The artwork is hideous, but still better than dull-surprise Universe packaging art.
I really hope someone does some Henkei box art scans. I'm loving that aspect alone.
I'm glad to see attempts on new things like this.
is he really called Octane on the packaging?
October 23rd? AWESOME.
I got Sideswipe on preorder and I'm pumped.
I'm going to go out on a limb and guess they are included. Probably attached to him and just hidden behind the art.
I doubt they'd leave a bit off.
Love the artwork, Octane looks wicked!
that's his name, right? pretty sure that's how he's been solicited.
(even Hasbro said Tankor was supposed to be called Octane)
I love the artwork!! I can't to get my hands on Sideswipe, Ironhide, and Silverstreak!!!
very nice stuff. the box art is cool, but the design is horrid.
Definitely opting out for the Henkei Sideswipe
Nice but I will just get the Universe SS
Yeah, I mean did Takara have to name him Tankor on the packaging like Hasbro has to?
No, he's actually named "Destron Octone" on the packaging.
"Octone" was Octane's Japanese name in G1, whereas the "Destron" prefix is the Japanese counterpart to Hasbro's "Autobot Jazz", "Decepticon Brawl" etc.
They did it twice before, with Transformers Collection "Cybertron Perceptor" and Henkei (or "Gentei") "Stuntron Wildrider".
Sweet artwork! Thats something the japanese version has nothing to envy the american one.
Sideswipe = BADASS!
