It's only been a handful of days since the new Transformers Generations 2018 book was released, and already we have a full video breakdown of it! The video, while in Chinese, shows off the catalogue in its entirety very nicely, and gives us some good looks at the latest and greatest toys from Hasbro and Takara! Almost (if not) every figure from the past few months is shown to some degree in the book, including Grand Maximus, Masterpiece Dinobot and Sunstreaker, and Legends Greatshot! The book also features some neat behind the scenes shots of the design process of toys like Titan Class Trypticon, Six Shot, and Overlord! We've taken some screenshots of the video, but they only show a fraction of the content included, so we recommend watching the nearly feature-length tour through the book embedded directly below!

Because while hasbro chooses and designs the characters Takara are the ones who handle a lot of the engineering for them. It’s not a surprise he’s in there

Isn't this basically piracy? How is this video different from scanning it and uploading those scans, quality/medium aside? I'll just wait and look through it when I have a copy.

Not a surprise indded, the Generations books are de facto Transformers yearbooks, usually showing all global releases and not just Takara Tomy's output. Of course, I didn't watch the video and haven't picked one of these up since Taiyo Tasho took over the publication so maybe that's outdated knowledge.

The 'review' aspect may make it fall under fair use, but it is a very grey line I'll admit (and I'm not sure how it works with a Chinese video of a Japanese book on a US site). :-?

In case we're asked, we will obviously remove the story. :)
