We have received word that Japan will continue getting Transformers Generations toys in 2014! Takara-Tomy are adding to their version of Transformers Generations with releases of TG-30 Waspinator in February 2014 and TG-31 Rhinox in March 2014. Right now the only images available are placeholders, but all indications are that these will have slightly tweaked decos, perhaps some areas may sport metallic finishes, maybe in the style of the Beast Wars Telemocha reissues where only the robotic parts were done in metallic finish. Time will tell.

Big thanks to sponsors TFSource for this initial heads up - check out their listings for the pair of Japanese Generations Beast Wars!

Those look AMAZING. I already thought the original Waspinator from ~'96 was pretty great but this new one looks awesome.

And the original Rhinox toy was just ok, but this one looks insane!

I've been a little out of the loop, but are these just going to be Japan-only? I'm trying not to spend so much money, and it would be really great if they came to the U.S.. I don't really buy Transformers anymore besides Masterpieces, but these are a must-buy.

These will see a U.S release as well, just expect the TakTom versions to have better paint apps.


To be honest I'm looking at these guys as mini MPs anyway since they look so damn good.
Rhinox
Yeah, you know I'm in. I'm buying 3 of the big guy. One for each mode, one to keep pristine in the box.

I used to always say "im not into beast formers" But with some of the new dragons released, I really liked them. I recently got my son and me watching BW on Netflix. DAMN good show. Just like animated, I was late to the game...never watched it much when it was new, Now I love it.

Rhinox is an easy buy...Waspinator I can pass on. Rhinox may be the best looking beast former ive ever seen.

Shiny metallic paint job?

YES PLEASE.

I thought Waspinator's japanese name was Waspitas? Why aren't they using them? Not that I'm complianing, just curious.

Honestly I wouldn't even expect that.

TakTom has a habit of just making things shiney and someohow that makes it better. On Waspinator that'd work okay, since his beast mode is kind of shiney bug-skin on the show, but I don't need a golden Rhinox.

Wow... Rhinox looks killer!! I'll wait for the US release though. And Waspy, too.

Considering what they did with the Telemocha series and Henkei Dinobot I'm pretty confident TakTomy knows how to do BW figures justice.

Pretty sure they will blow the Hasbro releases out of the water.

I wouldn't jump to conclusions just yet. There has been several instances of lately that TakTom has done that has left many scratching their heads.

I will consider Waspanator for sure!!!

You just jinxed it. Now Takara will make it accurate to the original toy.
StrangePlanet
If you saw the Waspinator toy on the showroom floor at SDCC you know it looks NOTHING like these pics.
Hasbro loves to Photoshop the beejeezus outta their press pics, and the actual toy looked WAY lackluster in its paintapps.
But will the Takara one look better? More like these press pics? I'll wait to find out, but I'll pay a little extra for a toy that looks better.
Zavien
These are great and I'm in for rhinos, skidz, and whirl. I hope though that there is a few more beast formers in this line though. There is a couple more figures I would really like to see redone

They probably realized that the original Japanese dubbed names were lame or that they forgot.

TakTomy, this is nice but please release the Generations retools as Hardhead, Reflector and Swindle like it was rumored a few months ago you would, or I'll break up with you.

Those might be lost to the void, along with AM Thundertron.

Well screw it I guess I'm double dipping on another figure this year. Love my Telemocha Waspinator too much not to get Takara's updated version.

I'm hoping they use a similar color scheme to Telemocha waspinator, but either way I know I'll end up getting it.
