    What changes do you guys think Takara will do to the animated figures, if any>
    Or if they will even bring them over.
    How about a Magnus with light blue replaced with white, random chrome all over the place>
    Sorry, my question mark buttom is not working on my computer.

    That's a good question. In fact, has Animated even aired in Japan yet?

    I've seen them throwing animated episodes around on Actoys a few times. I don't remember if it was subbed or dubbed though.

    Probably reedit the cartoon to include more Sari upskirts, amirite?

    Just saying.


    :D 

    As for Takara, probably just more random chrome and possible better paint apps.

    I don't think it has.
    When japan airs a new series,
    every episode is new.
    One new episode each week, no repeats.
    That's why 'armada', 'energon', & 'cybertron'
    were approx 52 episodes long.
    They're probably waiting for more episodes(season3).
    They got burned in the past.
    They started airing 'beast wars' only to discover that
    only 26 episodes were coming initially.
    They filled in the gap quickly with'beast wars II',
    then 'beast wars neo' followed by 'car robots'(RID).
    They're probably holding up the toy line
    till they get more show on the air.

    Just better paint I guess, the paint apps choice is already dead-on I guess so all they can do is do a better job QC-wise.

    Well maybe a bit of chrome too.

    i dunno maybe it'll be like the movie release. like the same fig/package with a takara sticker slapped on it. maybe a few differences here and there (like when 76 BB had clear windows).

    In that case, I wish they would start airing it now, so we'd get another "filler" show! I love RiD, and the few eps I've seen of BW II, it has that RiD charm!

    A show colored Starscream :D 

    No matter how I look at it, Starscream doesn't look like the blue that the figure is on the show. At least it isn't thundercracker blue or anything

    I doubt they'll use chrome on Animated toys. Its not like every single jp version of a TF toy has it.

    I'm thinking Animated will eventually go to Japan, but they'll probably wait until there's fifty or so episodes in the can (or the series is cancelled in the US, whichever comes first)

    On the toys, I'm sure there will be tweaks here and there, color change here or there, and some added details in the paint apps. The changes will be pretty minor, if noticeable at all, but will make all the difference for some buyers.

    The real question is, is Japan even interested in viewing a series that looks less cooler than Galaxy Force? So far, Takara hasen't even made anything stating they will do anything with Animated, not long launch the toys upon their market. Mainly due to the countless problems the toys have, I don't think Takara would risk it... they want Transformers with quality. And even though I'd hate to say this, the Animated toys don't seem to meet up to the quality of the A/E/C, Classics, and Universe toylines.
