For the beginning of 2010, Takara Tomy going to do Transformers Animated in Japan.
It is well known for Transformers fan that Takara Tomy is known to have better quality in painting for the same counterpart of Hasbros. You will expect not less for this Transformers Animated toys. Just see for yourself, most of the vehicles are repainted CHROME!
I for one welcome this toy line. The downside of this version is that not all of the figures will be made. Example leader class characters will not be made. See the whole toy list here.
It has been very quiet here in Singapore for Transformers Animated toy line. I have been waiting for Arcee and Blackout but till today the retailers or Hasbros in Singapore are not bringing in any new Transformers animated toys. Now the retails are packed with Revenge of the Fallen which I hardly care about. Good news is the Transformers Animated new wave from Hasbros should be coming in retail this month. I hope it will be sooner in Singapore than US.
Time to get Transformers Animated again. :)
