We have even more news coming out of Japan's C3 X Hobby for you today! This time it's a full run down of the Transformers Animated display, showing many of the mass retail release items (as well as the Lucky Draw Silver Animated Bumblebee).
On show were next month's releases, Wingblade Optimus Prime
(now confirmed to be a crystal version of the regular Voyager Class toy, with solid colored armor parts) Jet Pack Bumblebee
(with shiny gold finish to his robot mode) and Cybertron Mode Ratchet
(who features metallic red in similar places to his Earth mode toy).
Also on show were the October releases, Lights and Sounds Optimus Prime
(with full metallic finish), Lights and Sounds Ironhide
(with very nice weathering once again evident), Decepticon Shockwave Original Version
(who sports a very
nice metallic purple finish), Oil Slick
(with metallic finish on his green parts) and Armorhide
(who has some metallic red particularly on his chest and shoulders. The rest looks the same as the US Toys R Us Exclusive Ironhide release). Also on show were the Animated Super Collection, these look more or less identical to the Animated Activators other than full color faction symbols.
The coverage of the display is rounded out with the next four releases in the Movie Series Autobot Alliance line. These will be:
- AA-11 Highbrow
- AA-12 Tomahawk
- AA-13 Hailstorm
- AA-14 Terradive
No variations were evident, but it is possible like the different versions of the initial Autobot Alliance releases we reported on earlier today, that we might find out all four have differences compared to their US releases nearer the time these four are planned for release.
Also be sure to check out these videos showing some of the highlights of the event, including a large display of Transformers lines from years past:
