We have a few updates for Takara Tomy's soon to be released Transformers Go! line. First a couple of new images of the Samurai combiner team of Kenzan, Jinbu, and Ganou are making rounds on the various Japanese message boards that show three of the possible combined forms. Second we have an image from the Twitter feed of @orokamo that gives us a look at the animation style that will be used for the Transformers Go! supplemental TV Boy magazine DVD's.

And what is that supposed to mean? This isn't any different from G1 from Headmasters onwards.

The Hot Spice - Officer Barbrady - Jimbo combination looks the best out of the three, with Jimbo - Hotspice - Officer Barbrady coming as a close second. Officer Barbrady as the head and arms leaves an ungainly looking robot for the initial combination.

So is the animation in lieu of Cybertron, or is it just regular old anime? With two differing images, it's making my noggin hurt. :HEADHURTS:

You didn't get the point, did you?
The TF Prime show in Japan was a horrible versions of one of my top TF shows. I don't have anything against anime, in fact most of the shows I watch are anime, but I hate the cheesy meant for toys anime.
When a company jacks up a perfect show and/or line, I get ticked. I hope this show is at least fair.

There's more than three combined forms?! Are these three compatible with the beastly ninja team as well?

The Kenzan/Jinbu/Ganou combo looks awful. It's just a tower with arms and legs.

I'm guessing not, all three forms have a set order. That won't stop Japanese bloggers from trying stuff out tho :lol:

Once I understood that the concept of "living robots" is aimed more at young children in Japan, I can understand their direction. In keeping with tradition, I'll just get the figures I like and not pay any heed to the surrounding media.

Those combined forms are disappointing.

Luckily, this is Japan and you can feel free to ignore the non-cannon shenanigans. :P

Awesome! Go-Kenzan, Go-Jinbu, and Go-Gan'ō look great!

Gekisōmaru looks pretty cool too.

Well, what did you expect? Transformers is for kiddies in Japan. Of course they're gonna make it for a younger audience than in the West. No Transformers cartoon has ever aired in Japan without having very young children in mind. Not even the Japanese-made ones.

Doesn't help that this is a toyetic series, so there's that to consider as well.

Western mindset: "Transformers are for big kids"
Eastern mindset: "Transformers are for little kids"

And it's not just Transformers. "Living robots" in general is a concept viewed as being for youngsters over there, while "piloted robots" are what's big with the older audiences in Japan.

And yet Japan still has no excuse for making Airazor a GUY!
That's the worst, and most stupid thing they've done.

I guarantee you that Japan has done far worse than making Airrazor a dude.

And... *gulp* ... Kiss Players.

And Takara, when questioned about Airazor's gender and her/his moves on Tigertron, they said "some people are like that."

Not that I approve of their gender-bending Airazor, but one could interpret your post as being a little homophobic.

And, Hasbro's just as guilty with gender-bending characters. They turned Nitro Convoy into a girl. Or is there some double standard where girlfying is okay?

Well then, to clarify, I'm not homophobic. I just find it completely idiotic of Takara for making a character male when said character was clearly established as female.

Japan's thinking exactly the same when we changed their male Nitro Convoy to our female Override in Cybertron. >:oP

In case you're all wondering, Override was to keep his manhood for the Cybertron adaptation (Galaxy Force aired a good 6 months before Cybertron), but was changed to female by Cartoon Network's wishes for a stronger female presence.

BW Airazor got the reverse treatment (though only in the cartoon, the Metals manga kept her as a girl, albeit a very stereotypical one), thanks to Japan not liking the "strong tough-as-nails girl" archetype. They prefer them magical instead with the skimpy outfits :lol:
