    Some things never change.

    A long time ago I watched both American and Japanese TF toy ads and noticed that while the American ones had the usual "kids waving the toys in front of the camera" thing, the Japanese ones removed the kids completely and used stop motion and pyrotechnics.

    Now I watched some toy ads for the ROTF toys, US and JP...and it's still the same thing.

    Liiiiiike this?

    YouTube - Japanese Transformers commercials (1988-1991)

    I'm assuming most of you already know what the old American (and subsequently english-language in general) G1 toy ads look like. The only JP ROTF toy ad I could find tho was this and it doesn't really look like a TV ad to me...but if they're like this, looks like the Japanese have gotten a little lazier too :D
