Hong Kong Toy World forum has been updated with several upcoming Takara version Transformers Animated figures, with new images showing Takara Tomy figures such as Ultra Magnus & Swindle.

The Takara version of Ultra Magnus is mostly navy blue in the alternate mode.

As for Animated Swindle, due to the clarity of the image, the main difference will be the colour of the wheel rims. Hasbro version of the wheels are all black, for Takara there will be silver colour rims.

Toy World HK has also posted other images of Takara Animated figures such as Leader Class Megatron, Sunstorm, Jet Pack Bumblee, Waspinator, Samurai Prowl, Wreckgar and others. However most look unchanged from their Hasbro varients. You can check out the full listings here.

I never got Animated Ultra Magnus and it is pretty much the only one I want now that I have stopped buying Animated toys.

The f**k? People complained about Animated Magnus having light blue plastic instead of white and Takara go overkill by giving him blue metallic paint instead of white plastic? :BOOM:

I hope some better pics of Magnus shows up so we can clearly see what other changes were made other than the navy blue cab.

Agreed. I'd love a colour scheme that's more the G1 sandy brown than the Animated greeny-brown.

Beautiful. I look fantastic.

No this isn't narcissism, it's the truth.

I am so happy that the Optimus & Rodimus set comes with Deluxe Earth Mode Optimus instead of Activators Optimus! However, they don't appear to be clear. Maybe it's not the final version? Even if they're not clear, I'll be buying them anyway.

Too shiny! :P

But it looks like we've now seen the entire Takara Animated lineup, eh?

40 is a nice number to stop at. I'm not 100% sure what Takara's direction is going to be.. if they'll stop at 40, continue with repaints, or even venture off and make some new molds. Hopefully it's the latter.

Still clinging to the slim hope that Takara will produce a voyager-class Elite Guard Warpath...

I'm actually hoping for a repaint or two. Well, mainly just a G1 repaint of Prowl. New molds would be great, but since these were designed by Hasbro, would that even be possible?

I heard a rumour that those Japanese fellers are pretty good at making robot toys.

TFA Takara are good, but I hope Takara can release a new mold, such as Omega Supreme.

Well...yeah. :P :lol: But I've never heard of them making new molds for a pre-existing line that was completely designed by the other company. Normally it's just straight import and repaint.
