    Thanks to TF:TM for showing us that Takara has moved their website to a new url, and completely overhauled the site. Not only sporting a new look, the new site has sections for all their upcoming products. There's a section for Masterpiece, Hybrid style, Sports label, Music Label, Movie toys, and Beast Wars. There's also a section for Characters, one for Events and Campaign, Site Map, and even Links (which include a link to eHobby).

    To view the new website, click HERE.

    Nice

    BTW, are they not going to call Prime "Convoy"?

    Hmm. So Takara finally places Galaxy Force within the Unicron Trilogy, like they (and Hasbro) originally planned?

    What's up with the U.S. names in the "characters" section (Jazz, Optimus Prime)???

    [EDIT] Ahhh... I see, it's all movie characters, they are going to keep the same names, I wonder how Japanese fans feel about that?

    I also thought it was funny they used U.S. artwork quite a bit in other parts of the site.

    most likely due to the upcoming movie not changing anything for international releases.

    Uh, they have the Japanese names directly above them. I've seen it done several times this way before. In the book, Generations for example. Doesn't really mean anything at all.

    Do not come in here with your logical logic and get all logical with me!!!

    Besides... I can't read Japanese, so I had no way of knowing.

    That character section shows the G1 versions (if available) of the characters that will appear in the movie... did somebody forget to tell Takara that neither Blackout nor Frenzy are Soundwave anymore?

    Doh, sorry about that.

    Maybe in the Japanese story they still are! And it's really going to fit into G1 continuity taking place in 2007!!! ZOMG!
