    I just thought about something ...
    When (if) Animated is going to air in Japan, they will probably rename Optimus Prime into Convoy ...

    In s3 we're going to see Rodi ... and we already have Sentinel ...
    So I thought ...

    If they made a "japan only" episode of Animated, called
    "4 double Convoy" or something ... Starring:
    Convoy
    Sentinel Convoy
    Rodimus Convoy
    and ... *drums*
    Lio Convoy ...

    Do you guys think that *something* like this, ever could happen? Such an exclusive episode ... and even more importantly, would you like it?

    Well, we really don't know if takara would and how will sell Animated in Japan (the same American Superhero-esque tone?,make even sillier jokes undermining the big plot points like in BW? Ignore it and only sell Transformers as collector items or focus only in the Movie toys? ), so dunno. The franchise is not in good shape there.

    Still, I'm curius.

    I say OP Animated would be called Rescue Convoy.

    They are probably waiting for more episodes to be finished, teen titans and powerpuff girls did well over there.

    Ya I'm also curious as to how the Japs would interpret the series, would they redubbed it by dumbing it down or remain faithful to the source material? having said that it would be interesting if they would do it like BW & make some Japan only series like i.e BW II & Neo.

    It would also be nice to see Japanese versions of the toys or Japan exclusive items.

    Whatever the Japanese have up their sleeve, I'll just keep an open mind then..

    I don't think there will be a Japanese version of the show as some people said TakaraTomy may be laughing at TFA being chiny and stupid.

    I disagree, as said by Tekaman, Teen Titans did very well over there and TFA follows largely a similar formula.

    the most likely explanation for Takara/Tomy NOT doing Animated at this point is because they want to run the series like they run all the other cartoon series, a 52 episode run in a year. Until there are enough TFA episodes in the can (which won't occur until at least season 4, which at this rate won't be done until next fall at the earliest), I think they are perfectly happy to ride the coat tails of Transformers Universe and Movie.

    Didn't they say back at the end of Galaxy Force that they wouldn't focus on the child market anymore? I mean, the last characters released (Blender and Moledive) were web exclusive USA editions! And they were on the show!

    they never got Dark Crumplezone either...which is suprising becuase it's one of the best cybertron voaygers molds or the supreme King Starscream.


    TFA in japan will probably end up like BW a big joke....

    Swindle's jpn name is not Balls hell Takaratomy hasn't even annouced it.
