    Hong Kong based toy forum Toy-Kingdom has uploaded images of upcoming TakaraTomy TF Animated figures, showing them in their new, partially chromed/shiny paint schemes.

    ?????Toys Collection - ???????Toy World Forum - Powered by Discuz!

    The 2 pack Optimus and Rodimus set will come with deluxe earth mode Optimus.

    2 pack Cybertron mode Megatron vs Optimus will come with the deluxe Cybertron mode Optimus figure.

    The images of Samurai Prowl, Jet Pack Bumblebee (Hydrodive Bumblebee), Cyb mode OP vs Megs and Cybertron mode Ratchet are re-used Hasbro stock photos.

    Once again, most of the figures suffer from the poor use of metallic paint.

    Leader class Megatron suffers from the same half painted, half unpainted look of earlier figures like Starscream. Only his head, chest and arms sport silver paint. The rest of the figure is in the same dark gray as Hasbro's. Similarly, only the red on his arms and abs appear to be metallic while the red on his feet and cannon seem to be flat red.

    Can't tell clearly which bits on Magnus are metallic but it seems to be the light blue shoulder pieces and his elite guard sigil.

    Sentinel, Jazz and Swindle get chrome bits which in Swindle's case, really hurts the figure. Waspinator gets some random metallic purple on his beast mode head while Blurr's dark blue bits are now medium metallic blue.

    Elite Guard Bumblebee's new color scheme looks really appealing. I'd say it looks even better than the regular version.

    I would only want Leader Megatron if he had Norio Wakamoto's voice.

    Bah, I was really hoping the Japanese version of Ultra Magnus would be white.

    How is it better? Unless they fixed Megatron and he can stand without falling over when holding his gun, which I don't think you can tell from this small picture. Though, they seem to be lacking the battle damage paint.

    Crystal OP/Rodimus don't look spectacular.

    I hope Hasbro finally gives us some estimates on WHEN they plan to release Wingblade OP, Rodimus and Hydrodrive BB, otherwise people will order them from Takara...

    Yeah, bummer... what a misleading name or translation. I got excited on that Crystal Rodimus Minor set.

    :(  I'll still get it, I want a Rodimus anyway, and a crystal Prime = awesome. But an extra crystal Rodimus would have been twice as cool.

    HAH, I'm glad that Roddy/Optimus comes with what appears to be a clean version of the Deluxe Earthmode. Hopefully they don't turn the clean one clear, I want a "normal" version of that mold BADLY. If Roddy's clear, I don't mind, I'll have a preorder up for his normal version anyways XD

    Shiny leader Megs is pretty tempting. All the others (which aren't in the "Hasbro might never release" category) are either not different enough to be give two thoughts to, or hampered by their changes. - IMO anyway.
