Posted on 03-28-2015 at 01:45 AM by ORIO under Japanese Transformers
lg13-Megatron TF Yuki has posted on Twitter a larger, more clear reveal of the upcoming Takara Legends version of Generations Leader Class Megatron. The differences from the two include the lack of red on the inner arms, the plastic on the joints being cast in grey rather than red, having the orange, purple, and red chest detail paint apps removed, and also having red paint added to the sides of the torso.

First Image of Takara Transformers Legends LG13 Megatron

Posted on 03-21-2015 at 06:24 PM by Mechafire under Japanese Transformers
CAm-1tjU8AAgCv9png_large Thanks to T_soiya on Twitter, we now have our first look at Takara's Transformers Legends LG13 Megatron, which is the Generations Leader Megatron figure done up in a relatively similar, albeit a slightly different, color scheme.

Notable differences include the lack of red on the inner arms, the plastic on the joints being cast in grey rather than red, having the orange, purple, and red chest detail paint apps removed, and also having red paint added to the sides of the torso.

Is this small amount of differences enough to get you to spring for the Japanese version of this figure? Let us know after the jump!

New Images of Takara Menasor, Adventures Ultra Magnus, Nemesis Prime & More

Posted on 03-20-2015 at 12:37 AM by Jacer under Japanese Transformers
1426825745314 A new hobby magazine is starting to hit shelves over in Japan and some scans have surfaced over at 2Chan. We get a fully painted look at Tracks with his glorious hood flames. There also some new shots of Adventures Ultra Magnus, and Nemesis Prime which are due out next month! The main announcement is Unite Warriors Menasor! There doesn't appear to be much difference between the Unite Warriors and Combiner Wars Menasor. Some speculation is that it is just a hasbro place holder. It's also hard to tell who the left leg is whether it's Offroad or a repaint of Breakdown or Deadend as Wildrider.

Check out the pictures after the jump and give your comment in the discussion!

Transformers Adventure Knockout and Dreadwing In Package Image

Posted on 03-19-2015 at 02:51 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
CAdOTUzUYAAr4fE Hisashi Yuki has posted an image of the Transformers Adventure Dreadwing and "Bloody" Knockout on his Twitter feed. This pair are redecos of the Beast Hunters Deluxe class Knock Out and Dreadwing, who never previously got a release in Japan. Their packages feature some artwork done in the style of the new show - and while Knock Out looks close to his original style, Dreadwing's artwork makes his face look quite different from the stoic, noble appearance the character had in Prime. Check out the image and see for yourself.

FIG-COL-8613 Via Amiami we have word of an upcoming Kabaya Transformers release. Named "D Collection", these are a set of three PVC (or similar material, we'd wager) figures. The three characters are Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream, each being poseable at the head, waist, and shoulders, and featuring a few different accessories. The figures also have chase edition "clear" versions. Check out a few images of these new Kabaya releases after the break.
