    New Japanese Transformers Animated OP.

    YouTube - Transformers Animated 7.24 New Op song.wmv

    This still uses Transformers EVO, but the second verse. It also features a little bit of new animation, Earth Mode Megatron, with Soundwave, Soundblaster, Swindle and 2(?) Blackouts instead of Cybertronian Megatron and the clones.

    I think I prefer the original but this one still kicks ass.

    EDIT: 666 posts! :O

    Trippy.
    I wonder if they're just going to change that one part again for season 3, or if 3 will actually get a whole new opening?
    Still neat though.

    Yeah, the twin Blackouts are interesting. I wonder if there's anything to that, or if it was just for visual flash.

    Nice. Ironic that they take the clones out now, when they're getting toward the point where they start showing up, but including Swindle is a win in my eyes. Pity it's only that 10 second clip that's changed.

    Strange that they showed normal Soundwave using Ratbat more than Laserbeak in 'Human Error' but this opening shows Electrostatic Soundwave using Laserbeak instead.

    The fact that they're shown separately might mean they see Soundwave and Soundblaster as two different characters unlike the G1-Headmasters continuity.

    Two Blackouts? Hmm. Maybe they're pushing for a Grindor repaint but haven't finalised the colours yet.

    This week's episode of Animated in Japan features an updated version of the OP with a new segment (time stamp 1:27) replacing the Starscream clones salute in front of Cybertron mode Megatron from the original.

    The new version shows Soundwave, Electrostatic Soundwave, Laserbeak and Swindle transforming in front of Megs in helicopter mode. Instead of Slipstream, this time Megs (in earth bot mode) is flanked by 2 Cybertron mode Blackouts!

    The final big bad that Optimus flies up to fight at the end is still shrouded so I guess it's not earth mode Megs since he was already shown earlier in the OP. Possibly a Lugnut Supreme then.

    Thanks to safusiiwa1946 for the video.

    Nice to see Swindle get included. Since he's only in 1 episode so far there I didnt think he'd get the OP treatment.

    Sounds like they've used some different verses of the TFs Evo song. And that BB animation at the beginning reminds me of BW Neo and RID-style animation somehow.

    Nice to see the little changes to the opening. I expect there'll probably be more to come after the 2nd season eps.

    Part of me thinks the two Blackouts represent Blackout and Grindor from the movies.

    Hah, they switched out a character who doesn't have a toy for characters who have toys on the shelves right now. Thanks for the update!

    Considering the prominent role Arcee and Ironhide get in the opening, are you really surprised?

    I always loved this opening, but the changes are really cool.

    So who else thinks that the 2nd Blackout is Grindor?

    This was probably mentioned in the other thread but why do Japanese intro's have tons of spoilers in them?

    I wish takara would just continue the show where us ended with similar quality to the opening they've made

    Whats weird, is this seems like it could be an entirely different show, other then just a dub.
