Just awful. No hate here, but awful. Way to drop the ball.
A TT moist is happening for sure.
A shade darker looks leaps and bounds better IMHO...
Cant wait to see the Diaclone repaints, gotta add to the hoard
Yes! New figure that I actually want! Was worried that the movie masterpieces were starting to get too much attention! Jazz? Mirage? Hoist? Brawn? Insecticons? .....Constructicons? Please?
Oh, and of course ALL the dinobots! ...please
Takara and Toyota........what took you?! Hoist Hoist Hoist!
What happened to CJ? Not that I'm complaining about TB, also this used to be our family transport (gray aluminum color) until 2004, same model until it gave up (the one with the word Toyota embossed on the back ramp door).
Looks pretty great.
Quite happy with Terraegis, not seeing any reason to swap him based on this tiny pic.
Price and QC will both be awful, I'm sure.
Need the car dudes to chime in here, because I'm wondering the same thing. I haven't been able to find any images of a Hilux with the mirrors that far forward. Really curious about what it's based on.
Edit: actually, looks like it's maybe a first or second gen based on this: Evolution from 1st gen to 8th gen | HISTORY | Hilux 50th Anniversary Special Website | Exclusive Product Stories | Toyota Brand | Mobility | Toyota Motor Corporation Official Global Website
Edit again: looks like if you click into both the 3rd and 4th gen on the Hilux history website (both 1983), pictures show that they both offered the mirrors further up. The 4th gen description says that there was a different body type for 4WD, maybe that's it?
Trailbreaker, at last he emerges from rumored “in development” status. As we’ve seen time and again, when MP news is sparse it means TakaraTomy is preparing some great things!
I’m excited to see the upcoming full reveal and very excited to add another larger Autobot to my collection. He’ll look great standing alongside Ironhide and Ratchet.
Reminds me I never picked up Hound. Need to change that soon
Glad to finally see this revealed, looking forward to Hoist and hopefully a repaint/retool based on the G1 toy too.
yeah, that one movie masterpiece we get a year really takes away from the 6-8 MPs we get a year.
These look like they were colored digitally in the modern era. I'm just wondering how accurate they are?
Trailbreaker's value of gray certainly fluctuated on the show.
Real World: Skywarp would be lighter due to a flat black most likely used on aircraft, whereas Toyota would have used a deep gloss black on the truck.
I'm kinda Surprised Toyota let them go with those color choices.
They are right where they should be! If you google, in English, a 'Toyota Hilux N30', or similar you are most likely going to get pictures of US market models. In Japan, however, they hung onto wing mirrors actually mounted on the wings (fenders) for a while after many other markets mandated their placement in the modern position by the A-pillar.
Now we can debate whether Trailbreaker should be a Japanese model or not since Teletran one did his scanning in the US presumably, but that's what TT are going with!
I'll finally have a TT pre-order in the books!
Now, announce Cliffjumper!
This guy is behind them, he uses the original sheets
2D/3D art - The most accurately coloured G1 animation models online!
Oh yes! Bought!
Indeed. I’ll happily replace any 3P ones with official ones should TT actually make them…
Ah, it's a regional thing. Cool!
And as for the Teletran/Skyspy scan, I think it's fine for Trailbreaker to be Japanese...as Prowl's altmode was also very Japanese. Seriously, were there any police Fairlady Z's in the US, like ever?
