Thanks to postings to the Takara Tomy Twitter via the Takara Tomy Mall we have some new images of the promo art for the first wave of Cyberverse toys hitting Japan! The show and the toyline are just debuting so we're rather ahead of the game elsewhere in the world, but the character art appears to be brand new and injects a lot of kinetic energy into the characters.

Any fans of the animation style of the cartoon and toy packaging will surely enjoy what they've done here. We've included the translated Twitter summary for each character which lists their respective voice actors in the Japanese dub.

Enjoy the images and as always share your view with the Seibertron crew in the forums!

Optimus Prime's translated description:
"\ \ Cyber Bath first release July 13 / "Optimus Prime" played by Takehito Koyasu can reproduce the proof of the leader, the deadly matrix attack gimmick that is activated by rotating the matrix (° ꒳ °) no"

The Cyberverse cartoon began airing in Japan back on April 27. As of May 24, eight episodes have aired so far.

Is it me or do the Japanese stock photos look different, like the toys have a different paint job?

It's the sharp cleanliness of the lighting and photography.

Yup.
Unless it's some sort of special exclusive Takara edition, the days of the "superior Takara paint job" are gone.

Glad that Hasbro decided to give us the "Takara paint" (while increasing the prices) instead of Takara giving the Japanese the "Hasbro paint". At least we no longer have to import anything anymore in order to have the "superior paint".

Huh, Takehito 'Dio Brando' Koyasu back into an Optimus role! That's one I didn't expect. He was Optimus Primal. :lol:

It might have been mentioned in the cartoon thread (this is the toyline thread), but I can't recall without double-checking.

Honestly, in a lot of cases I don't think the "superior Takara deco" was better enough to be worth the fuss or the extra cost and bother.

It was a case-by-case basis. Most of the times, the Takara were better. Especially for the Henkei line. But sometimes, the Hasbro were the superior one. Especially for the TF Prime line when Takara's had NO paint and only stickers. Animated was debatable. Takara's were super painted, but had that super shiny color. Making them less cartoon accurate.

No matter superior or inferior, one would had to pay at the very minimum double or triple the Hasbro price for the Takara one factoring shipping. At least now, there's no longer any hard choices to make.

Evidently I didn't emphasize a certain key word properly. In a lot of the cases where the Takara deco was the better one, I don't think it was so amazingly better as to be worth all the fuss or going to extra cost and trouble to import.

Ooops. Grimlock is depicted with a red chest, instead of a yellow one. He's on the artwork for Megatron. Lower left-hand side of image.

On my end, I should have added:
"Whenever it was worth it paying double, triple, or quadruple the usual price for better paint was up to the buyer."

For me it was not worth it 90% of the time.

Or it could be a generic, who simply reuses Grimlock's character model, albeit recolored.

Speaking if which, was the gladiator fighting megatron in the begining of the Megatron is my Hero episode a generic using Grimlock's chatacter model?
