Seriously, this boxes are the true meaning of EPICNESS.
That means TakaraTomy strongly believes in Animated, maybe there will be more toys an a new cartoon in the future once Transformers: Prime fails dramatically, you know, a la Robots in Disguise following Beast Machines.
Live long, Animated, live long.

Man if these are reasonably priced I may snag some.
On another note, what if Japan continues Animated ala G1?

Does anyone else think these boxes look very typical in comparison to other Japanese toy packages? They look too much like Revoltech or some MSIA boxes. Then again, I do like how it looks, so oh well.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Bumblebee's box looks pretty distinctive and eye-catching, but Prime's box seems to have been designed to be reminiscent of both Alternity, and a lot of typical hobby figure boxes.Nekoman wrote:Does anyone else think these boxes look very typical in comparison to other Japanese toy packages?

But, that's just the lighting of the set... I'm quickly reminded that they're metallic and chrome paints when I see Bumblebee.
The cartoon was bright and vibrant, but it wasn't chromed or metallic. It's part of why the toys worked so well, they were show accurate. They lose some of their toonish feel in these color schemes, and that ruins the feel of it all, at least for me.

So when's Wingblade Prime supposed to come out here? (Here being the US...) I was pretty anti Animated, but I ended up buying Prime and Megs because I thought I should at least pick up the staples (and because leader Megs was only $20) and I ended up really liking Prime...as long as his face plate is up! So I ended up getting about a dozen of the figs from there and liked about half of them quite a bit...and thinking the other half were okay. While I'm at it, I should probably own up to all the smack I've talked about Animated the last couple years. Not my favorite line, but they're really not that bad, and most aren't as simplistic as I had them pegged for.

Nope. Bayformer Prime is called Optimus Prime in Japan. Also the Titanium Primes are sold as Optimus Prime in Japan but that's due to Galoob being cheap and using the American packaging.

This makes me glad I never bought a Hasbro Animated Prime. I see myself buying some Takara Animated stuff in the future.
