It's possible. I saw it happen on other simple toys. A LOUD 5 minutes intro. 20 minutes of ranting about the story, the character, ect. 10 minutes screwing around the box and every single details. 5 minutes on the actual toy. 5 last minutes talking about sponsors, e-begging, and filler time to click other videos that pop on screen.

BAM! 45 minutes.

Don’t forget the 5-10 minutes touching on their personal lives or that they’re sick.

Oh yeah, a classic. And when it's time to show how to transform the toy, the only thing we see are the reviewer's hands. :lol:

New Promo Art and Images for Japanese Release of Transformers Cyberverse

Postby Stargrave » Sun Jul 14, 2019 1:40 am

Motto: "It’s all the in the reflexes"
Weapon: Glass Gas Gun
Thanks to postings to the Takara Tomy Twitter via the Takara Tomy Mall we have some new images of the promo art for the first wave of Cyberverse toys hitting Japan! The show and the toyline are just debuting so we're rather ahead of the game elsewhere in the world, but the character art appears to be brand new and injects a lot of kinetic energy into the characters.

Any fans of the animation style of the cartoon and toy packaging will surely enjoy what they've done here. We've included the translated Twitter summary for each character which lists their respective voice actors in the Japanese dub.

Enjoy the images and as always share your view with the Seibertron crew in the forums!

Optimus Prime's translated description:
"\ \ Cyber Bath first release July 13 / "Optimus Prime" played by Takehito Koyasu can reproduce the proof of the leader, the deadly matrix attack gimmick that is activated by rotating the matrix (° ꒳ °) no"
Image
Image
Image

Windblade's translated description:
"\ The first server Berth will be released July 13 / Autobot female warrior "Windblade" played by Atsushi Yuki transforms from jet to robot (= Ω ω)) Target age is over 5 years old and it is a specification that can be transformed even by your child!"
Image
Image
Image


From Bumblebee's translated description:
"The first BBS is released on July 13. The Bumblebee, played by Ryohei Kimura, has a gimmick that can activate the Stinger Sword of its Special Move in both vehicle and robot modes. As it is above, it is a specification that even a child like that can transform it! "

Image
Image
Image


Megatron's translated summary:
"\ Ebi fried rice! / "Megatron" of Cyberverse series played by Shigeru Chiba will be released on July 13th tomorrow. Chiba TRON is still alive as ever in Cyberverse ... (´-` )"
Image
Image
Image

And at last we have Starscream's summary:
"\ \ Cyber Bath first release July 13 / New leader of the self-proclaimed Decepticon played by Tsuruoka Satoshi "Star Scream" transforms from a jet to a robot (· ᄇ ·) و 対 象 Target age 5 years or older Therefore, it is a specification that even a child like that can transform it!"

It's the sharp cleanliness of the lighting and photography.

Yup.
Unless it's some sort of special exclusive Takara edition, the days of the "superior Takara paint job" are gone.

Glad that Hasbro decided to give us the "Takara paint" (while increasing the prices) instead of Takara giving the Japanese the "Hasbro paint". At least we no longer have to import anything anymore in order to have the "superior paint".

Huh, Takehito 'Dio Brando' Koyasu back into an Optimus role! That's one I didn't expect. He was Optimus Primal. :lol:

It might have been mentioned in the cartoon thread (this is the toyline thread), but I can't recall without double-checking.

Honestly, in a lot of cases I don't think the "superior Takara deco" was better enough to be worth the fuss or the extra cost and bother.

It was a case-by-case basis. Most of the times, the Takara were better. Especially for the Henkei line. But sometimes, the Hasbro were the superior one. Especially for the TF Prime line when Takara's had NO paint and only stickers. Animated was debatable. Takara's were super painted, but had that super shiny color. Making them less cartoon accurate.

No matter superior or inferior, one would had to pay at the very minimum double or triple the Hasbro price for the Takara one factoring shipping. At least now, there's no longer any hard choices to make.

Evidently I didn't emphasize a certain key word properly. In a lot of the cases where the Takara deco was the better one, I don't think it was so amazingly better as to be worth all the fuss or going to extra cost and trouble to import.

On my end, I should have added:
"Whenever it was worth it paying double, triple, or quadruple the usual price for better paint was up to the buyer."

For me it was not worth it 90% of the time.
