Fellow Seibetronian xRotorstormx, currently travelling through Japan, dove into the Takara Tomy Transformers Adventure line and fished out a TAV56 Prime of Micron Nemesis Prime figure - and decided to share some in-hand package images of the black and red repaint of Optimus Prime, featuring its red cleavers, and the deluxe/warrior Power Surge look. Check them out below, and keep your optics peeled soon for some more images!

Are those some scenes we haven't seen yet from upcoming episodes on the back of the packaging?

I wonder how good it would look to swap the red for the original blue wings/swords.

Arent the top of Starscream's shoulders supposed to be blue?

They look gray to me in that pic.

Keep in mind that whole image is blue-tinted given it's from a recording of a recording, so everything in it has a blue hue to it.

Fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg has gotten his mits on Takara's Transformers Adventure TAV 56 Nemesis Prime. Below are his thoughts on the figure which he compared to the Clash of the Transformers vesion.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Nemesis Prime is a fantastic repaint of the Clash of the Transformers, Power Surge Optimus Prime, itself a retool of the Warrior Class Optimus Prime figure. The black and silver pops on the figure thanks to the teal highlights. The mold features a great cross play pattern with the weapons. If you can only get one, either US version is great, but if you can get two, Nemesis Prime is worth the price.

I sort of wish he'd had a red blade on his axe - what colour was the axe on the previous one ?

Exactly that, a red blade:

I gues they wanted to give a different weapon colour than before since it would be the same weapon again

I really must buy both kinds of Nemesis & Voyager sized Former Prime darker blue Ultra Magnus sometime... They keep slipping my mind though.

Fellow Transformers fan kyano13neo on Twitter was able to acquire a handful (yes, really) of Toys'R'Us Japan Takara Tomy exclusive TAV Optimus Prime figures, revealed last month, with the retailer specific deco and naming - made to look similar to the shop's Jeffrey the giraffe mascotte - and shared image of the figure for all to see! Included below are comparisons with the previous, Legion class, version of the toy, some fan modes, shots of the robot and vehicle mode, and a look at the bio.

Just as I thought: no real noticable differences between the original fig and the mass-released version. I will stick with the original, then.

the team who did the color scheme were probably Toqger fans. :???:

I dearly hope this gets repurposed as SG Longrack.

Like last year, Toysrus Japan will also have the Clash of the Transformers Adventure figures found in the west. All three are currently listed on Japan's Toysrus website and include the white redeco of Power Surge Optimus Prime, Starscream and Scavenger (Paralon). They are 2,299 yen each. As you will notice, this is the second version of Starscream available in Japan and while we do not know if that means Hasbro will also have a different mainline Starscream release, it is important to remember that the same thing happened last year with Takara offering a different Supreme Mode Bumblebee aside from the one available exclusively at Toysrus.

Weird how they changed Paralon's name to the name of his group. I guess it was a part of a mistranslation in the Japanese thinking that Paralon being called "a scavenger" referred to his name instead of what kind of person he is. Hope they don't make the same mistake with the rest of his group should more of them besides Scatterspike get Adventure toys.

On a hunch I decided to Google パラロン pararon and I'm getting some interesting results, like one relating to a Multi-Sport event called パラロン・パンバンサpararon panbansa and 全国パラロン・ケミアスルーフ防水工事業協同組合 zenkoku pararon kemiasurūfu bōsui kōji-gyō kyōdō kumiai, a roofing contractor company. Trademarks shouldn't be that much of a problem since they're not in Toys & Games, but still... Most results referred to our Paralon though, from blogs who got the US version first.

This makes me kinda sad.

Like, they haven't randomly borrowed a toy from another toyline like Generations Skrapnel or Animated Swoop since Wave 8. C'mon Takara, that was half the fun of this!

TAV30 Battle Grimlock, TAV31 Black Shadow, TAV32 Rumble & Frenzy, and TAV VS-SP Dogfight vs. Decepticon Runamuck were the last ones, huh? I guess the line no longer needed bolstering, and the Legends Class figures now have a place in Legends.

For what it's worth, it did cut down the list of unused toolings to this:

- Gears
- Huffer
- Chop Shop
- Windcharger
- Warpath
- Wreck-Gar

- Goldfire
- Dreadwing
- Jhiaxus
- Crosscut

- Starscream (Leader)
