This is always the best news: New clear images of upcoming Transformers figures and new reveals.

These are for the Takara Transformers Adventure Line and were found thanks to new amazon listings. The listings are for:

TAV-29 Bumblebee Supreme Mode

TAV-30 Battle Grimlock

TAV-31 Black Shadow

TAV-32 Rumble and Frenzy

TAVVS-04 Sideswipe and Stepper

Enjoy the great pictures. We finally get a confirmation that Stepper has a visor, we get our first look at Supreme mode Bumblebee and we finally see the deco on the Voyager Grimlock who is a retool of FOC Grimlock.

Sky Shadow looks epic.

I'm also really surprised at how nice that Grimlock looks - great use of the FOC base.

I NEED that Grimlock in my life, it looks so much better than Warrior Grimlock!

It's also great to have another opportunity to buy the United Rumble and Frenzy, and at a reasonable price too (3780 Yen is the same as about £20). However, because some of those leaked store listings for upcoming Hasbro Legends mentioned Rumble I don't know if I should get these Takara versions or just wait to see if that Rumble actually happens (I say IF because we never did get the Generations Hardhead, Brawn or Gnaw).

That Stepper is the only one worth import prices and the only one I am getting. Well I suppose I will be getting two since he comes with Sideswipe.

That Grimlock looks amazing. =P~ Even if he probably doesn't have the light-up gimmick anymore.

That Grimlock looks excellent. I may have to give him a whirl.

To all that!

I hope the new Jazz that comes with Drift in the VS. pack is doing something like that Bee. He looks AWESOME!

Dat Grimlock.... that paint job is killing it! I'm really surprised how well that mold is working for him. I would dare to say its working better here than on the FoC version it was made for.

If I could add anything to it, it would be his snaggly teef.

Doubt it, and even if they did, they would probably have next to no paint; so get 'em while you can >:oP

It's true! I don't collect RID figures, but that Grimlock might start me off.

That, or Megatronus (obviously). :-P

Wow, the retooling on that Grimlock dwarfs what Sandstorm got!

I'm digging the effort HasTak has been putting into retools lately!

Everyone overlooking the tweak to blackshadow, ball jointed neck.

Nope, still the same swivel joint. The figure has it at an angle though, so when you turn the head, he'll start looking up as well.

How about 2007 voyager Ratchet? They just have to remold both hands and the head to make a 100% classic character without any traces of bayformers aestetics!



He always reminded me of Transformers Prime Breakdown, or at least the versions with a bumper on his chest...

Probably not. It is really rare for a line like this that Takara announces something before Hasbro does. Thats why I am certain the 3 femcons arent coming either, as well as the Big Optimus.

That bumblebee looks amazing.

Ok so guys, we need eachother here. The best place to preorder this will be amiami (by FAR!) however, their preorders sell out in a day. For the ones coming out in august (runamick and override), we didnt even know until they sold out. So we need to pool our efforts and keep a vigilant eye. I hope the first person that spots these here: http://slist.amiami.com/top/search/list ... pagemax=40 can tell us right away. The listings should be up between 15-20 days.

Believe it or not, I am now even more excited for that Grimlock than Takara's Devastator.

I clearly said Amiami. That is the place that sells the cheapest and sells out right away. The other places dont sell out as fast and cost way more. Especialy for anyone not living in the states.

Sorry I'm kinda slow, and I misunderstood. :BANG_HEAD:
Btw can we order from here in the U.S.? I thought it was Yen. :???:
(Just a funny thing, but every time I get on a Japanese hobby site, I always expect to see [spoiler]boobies[/spoiler], and I'm usually right.) :lol:
Also is that Bumblebee a retool of the warrior Bumblebee? Or is is a bigger figure?
