News Post: Transformers: Lost Age Movie Advanced Line Toy Commercial
I don't get the idea of this toy line. Its supposed to be targeted more at adults right? So why does it look barely above the level of detail and complexity that the younger targeted toy line has...
Also noting how they show the DOTM and ROTF toys at the end and the updated ROTF leader Optimus puts the rest of the toys in this commercial to shame xD
That just made my Wednesday - reminds me of the classic toy commercials tacked on to the anniversary DVD of the only Transformers movie that matters to me - thank you for posting!
(And I agree with Scorpio - - loving that AD 12 Revenge Optimus Prime
The Generations stuff is aimed at older kids/collectors, yes. And the younger targeted line is all one-step stuff anyway. But these are still being sold to kids - thus the ad targeted at kids.
(As for sculpted detail, that has no bearing. It's actually pretty good on the toys.)
*cries in the corner*
I'm sorry. I didn't saw your thread. Credit to you, my good sir.
Naw, it's cool. Thanks again for your 24/7 around the clock coverage of TF news!
Better than most commercials on these days.
That was a good commercial promoting the toys, it harks back to the 'ol G1 style Japanese ad.
Can't wait for Dino/Mirage, but I can't tell if that's the new head or that Takara changed their minds and just gave him Sideways' head.
The best transformers toy commercial I've ever seen.
Is Mirage's head suppose to be what it is suppose to be or did Takara change their minds and repaint Sideway's head?
That was pretty cool.
Hrm. Can't tell whether the Dinobots are actually a more metallic plastic like the Takara Combaticons, or if it's just the way the light's hitting 'em; my Hasbro Slug looks nearly the same sometimes, and with all of them hitting two weeks early, I'm looking to see what I can cancel without feeling like I'm missing out on anything. Ended up cancelling on that Optimus because it's just not better enough for me; if they do a premium one like Buster Prime was, with pinstriping and, well, not transparent yellow plastic, I'll pick that up, but not something that's only mildly better than the Hasbro attempt.
That said, Dino looks absolutely fantastic; far better than I thought he would.
None of that was stop motion. That was all actual real time motion with someone holding the figure off screen.
Grimlock's transformation actually reminded me a lot of what Vangelus does in his toy reviews. Which is cool, I'm not knocking it. I'm just saying it's not stop motion.
The Japanese do it best! Watching that makes me want to go and buy those toys.
Erm... that wasn't stop motion. It was interesting and colourful but that was about it. It didn't really show much of the Decepticons from the latest film. Either Hasbro is just holding certain information back or the Decepticons don't matter as much.
I dont get why optimus truck windshields are yellow -.-
Figures to buy from this line:
Protoform Optimus Prime
Maybe Starscream and possibly Ratchet if it's the DotM mold...
Takara does make good figures, at least there are Decepticons in this advanced line, our AoE only has one or two confirmed so far, which is the least amount of Decepticons in a movie line period. (I'm not counting rumoured figures like Stinger which we haven't physically seen yet.)
See America, THIS is how you market toys.
