    It doesn't really say what it is, just:

    Starting this month in Hobby Japan, Transformers 35th anniversary series "Beast Generation".

    New toys, photo series? Who the hell knows

    Google translate says:
    Starting this month on #Hobby Japan
    #Transformers 35th Anniversary Series "Beast Generation"
    Then the comment says:
    Brief introduction of the BW series and the early member toys for anime.
    There was an interview with Kozo Itagaki who was a publicity and producer at the time of BW

    Looks like it will be a monthly segment in Hobby Japan magazine starting this month, introducing BW characters and toys & including interviews with production team members and such.

    This is good. It means Takara is putting effort into publicizing the Beast Wars sub-franchise.
    Hasbro has Cheetor in Cyberverse, but that's really just throwing crumbs. They could do much more to make kids acquainted with Beast Wars, which would only help sell the new toys when they eventually do a BW toyline.

    So it's the top of the original Primal's head down the bottom. I can't quite place what's poking in on the right there. Colour-wise, it looks like another piece of Primal.

    I do hope this is a sign of them doing what I hope they'll be doing.

    I hope the new products will be new-mold toys and not just limited to reused molds.

    Just to avoid any confusion and people getting their hopes up: this is NOT a new toy line. It's a monthly article in a magazine focusing on the history of BW (toys and cartoon). It's part of the Transformers 35th anniversary commemoration.

    That stinks. :(  It's nice that they're doing something BW related but I still hope it'll be a sign of perhaps seeing more BW related things from Takara.

    Sounds perfect for a tease or two.

    I expected as much.

    If TT did new toys, they'd have to be pretty special for me to want (non show?) "Not MP"... level figures...
