Seibertron member Diem was fortunate enough to attend the final day of Tokyo Toy Show 2010. Here's what he has to say about the event:

I was worried that by the final day of the Tokyo Toy Show there would be nothing left to see. Thankfully, the place was still vibrant and exciting, albeit crowded and humid.

Image

Tokyo Big Sight, the mysterious upside-down multi-pyramid of a building in which many anime, cosplay and toy conventions are held.

Image

As you can see, it was pretty crowded. Even at the very end of the event, people were walking around with filled bags and tired families.

Image

The outside of the TakaraTomy area was pretty Transformer-free, sadly.

Image

Elite Guard Prowls were for sale at the event, but were selling out incredibly quickly. The Dreadwing and Smokescreen set had already sold out!

Image

The next wave of Takara Animated figures were already up for sale, a week ahead of their store date. The Sons of Cybertron sets were unfortunately not present.

Image

Revenge Of The Fallen Dead End was a limited edition figure for Japanese customers of ToyHobby last year. The unsold figures were being sold at the event.

Image

There was an excellent Optimus Prime costumed guy wandering around and taking photos with kids.

Image

We've already seen pictures of the Animated display and 2010 campaign figures. The colours on Takara Rodimus looked really, really nice.

Image

Transformers: The Arcade Game(s)

Image

Vol.4 of Takara's EZ Collection series was also available there. The series has some very attractive boxart

Image

We'll be posting more about this series soon.

Image

This leaflet was being given out featuring all the latest Takara Animated figures.

Image

It appears to be Leader Class Megatron's in-package leaflet.

Image

The other leaflet included various TakaraTomy products; this was the only Transformers-related item in there.

Well, that was about it for the Tokyo Toy Show. It was interesting to see this stuff first-hand and it's good to know that TakaraTomy are still pushing Animated hard.

Looks like you had a blast Diem, nice that you were able to pick up an EG Prowl.

Congrats Diem. btw from what you saw at the "new" Predaking, were the "gold" patterns on Razor claw painted/stamp graphed or decals? That is if you managed to eyeball it closer. And is TFA Jazz any different from the international version?

I couldn't get any closer than my crappy photos would suggest. I think it was Takara Animated-style sheen paint but it's really hard to tell.

TFA Jazz looks the same to me, but I was trying to grab an EG Prowl before they sold out so I wasn't exactly playing spot-the-difference :P

Ah, looks a lot like Botcon, but with more exclusives.

Hopefully, you had yourself some fun on your hustle though the show!
