Upcoming Titan Master Cerebros/Fortress Retool Made to Resemble Japanese Comedy Duo

Postby william-james88 » Sat Nov 11, 2017 12:11 am

A Japanese website called natalie has posted images of what appears to be two retooled heads of Takara Transfomers Legends Fortress (aka Titans Return Cerebros). These two new robots each turn into the face of a comedian from the Japanese comdey duo Downtown. More specifically, they turn into their faces from the Science Laboratory skit (part of the images found below) of their show “Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!” (“Downtown’s This Is No Task for Kids!”), where they are dressed up as scientists and have round glasses.

Now, for those interested in getting these, here is the info that natalie shares with us. You need to purchase the Limited Edition version of their Blur Ray/DVD, for ¥ 8,032 in order to then separately buy the figures. The Limited Edition will come with a serial # that you use to place a pre-order for the figures, which cost ¥9,504. Preorders are placed between November 28th 2017 and January 31st 2018 and the figures should ship in the summer. This is really cool for Japanese fans of this comic duo and I do wish good luck to all western completionists out there.

I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie (more for style & soundtrack rather than Star Wars-rip off plot).
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.

Anyone notice that the blurred the Fortress Maximus face out? Probably means that both also have a unique face for Fortress Maximus.

This thing is so bizarre and out there that it's going to be $$$$ to get, methinks.

I had my wife read the info from that Natalie site. Basically you need to purchase Blu-Ray / DVD Limited Edition version in order to be able to separately purchase the figures. Apparently the Limited Edition will come with a serial # and you can place a pre-order for the figure starting November 28th, 2017 thru to January 31st, 2018. The figure costs 9504円 and will ship sometime in the summer of 2018.

Edit: Didn't realize the first post contained this info. My bad. :HEADHURTS:

the blurred out face, will probably be a bigger version of one of the comedian faces,

it so follows the idea of the japanese masterforce lore, (extra)ordinary people bonding with transformers,


I so want one,

So does the toy not come with the DVD at the Amazon Japan link above in the news story?

The only thig that comes with the DVD is a serial number that allows you to then buy the toys. The toys will cost you an extra $10 but what will be tough is that they will probably only ship to a japanese adress. These toys are mail order toys and the mail order slip comes only with the DVD. Its the same as those Hero X figures which could only be ordered once you bought the generations book.

I've had to turn to eBay or BBTS to find the last few things like this - Shining Lancelon comes to mind particularly, as do the other later TAV campaign Microns. Jungle and Mandarake will probably have some but unlikely for preorder.

Maybe CD Japan? I haven't ordered from there in ages, wonder if they even still have anything TF related?

More Images of Transformers Downtown Limited Edition Cerebros/Fortress Titan Masters

Postby Va'al » Wed Nov 29, 2017 8:05 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Via the official product page for the figures over on Gaki-DVD.Yoshimoto.co.jp, we have some new images of the previously reported set of Titan Masters molded after the Japanese comedy duo Downtown: Transformers Hamada Robo ~ Donalimas ~ & Transformers Matsumoto Robo ~ Guilty Mass ~! These two new robots turn into the faces of the two comedians from the Science Laboratory skit of their show “Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!” (“Downtown’s This Is No Task for Kids!”), where they are dressed up as scientists and have round glasses.

We also get to see the Cerebros head ready to be attached to Fortress Maximus, which was missing from the previous story. As a reminder, the promotional set will only be available via puchasing the Limited Edition BluRay/DVD of Downtown's work, which will come with a serial number to pre-order the figures, which cost ¥9,504, between November 28th 2017 and January 31st 2018. Release is expected to take place in summer 2018. Take a look below!

Small squinty eyes, thick-rimmed glasses, over-sized lips; all they're missing is the buck-teeth.

Weird.
I wrote a fantasy novel and I buried one Furmanism in it, because I could. Rise of Azraea, is now being posted incrementally (4 posts a week) for all readers to access freely.

You would want Flywheels to be an exclusive straight repaint of Blitzwing?


Because these and those Street Fighter figures are not "replacing" any possible main Transformer figure their exclusives made in small amounts in addition to the main line.

The only reason the Street Fighter ones are being made is because it's their 30th anniversary.

Plus Takara has already released the head as a separate thing, if he was being made it would have happened by now.

On one hand I'm obliged to get every single headmaster using the Titans Return system on the other hand this is just too weird.


(Where I could make the Street Fighter ones into Transformer versions of the characters like Metallikato or Circuit-Su martial Artists with names like Vegatron I can't really justify flesh faces)
