It has been a while since we were shown something new from Takara's TAV and TED lines, but this should make up for it. Firstly, the Snakas Blog has some new images of the previously reported Legion class figures:

TAV34 EZ collection team Bumblebee VS Megatronus

Image


TAV35 EZ collection Autobots VS Decepticons set

Image


We also got brand new images from TF Yuki for TED16 Big Thunderhoof (based on 3-step thunderhoof):

Image


Lastly, Yuki also gave us a nice look at their version of Warrior Fracture, TAV36:

Image


Are any of these worth going importing? Let us know in the discussion!

Will, I'm telling you, the differences are minimal. You can go for the Hasbro release on this one, and not regret it.

Edit: Ok :roll: upon 2nd inspection, maybe not "minimal", but I think you could save a buck (or beaver) here.
Wow, they did some justice to the minicon shoulder pads. And the stear skull on the fearing of the bike looks tuff. Reminds me of Oil Slick.

Precisely here's the hasbro one:

and here's the TT's version:

Apart from the color on the shoulders and painted detail on the mini-cons and front struts of the bike, you're not actually missing anything...

Does Hasbro's gun have red paint on it too? Its things like that which make me go nuts.

Also, while I like your beaver joke, we actually have loonies which is just as funny but true. Our dollar has a canadian goose on it (I know I know, BIG SHOCK!), and the name of that bird is also a loon, so we call it a loonie. But then we are made fun of for being Looney ;)

This should sum it up, stay till the end: http://social.popsugar.com/Incredible-A ... KIT-763180

I don't know how I feel about how deep that purple looks, maybe just the way the camera is catching it. I like some of the paint on Hasbro's (red on his tummy and silver on shoulders) and some on Takara's (mo' paint on fakicons and in alt mode) better.

Hasbro's is very nice and I'm very happy with it. Does this help ya Will?

Beautiful pic!
Robot mode looks good but I am more envious of the alt mode.

Thanks, I try :oops:

I can feel ya on alt mode. I may have to take a paint marker to him. My robrobuddies stay in bot mode except for photo ops and play time, so it's not a big deal for me.

Either way (has or tak), Fracture is an amazing figure for the line. Easily one of the best so far.

Adding to this round-up post from a couple of days ago from the Takara Tomy Transformers Adventure lines, usual PR-tweetmaster Hisashi Yuki has shared a couple more images of the Warrior class TAV-36 Fracture in his Japanese paint-scheme, plus some additional TED-17 Bumblebee shots. Check them out below!

Dammit Japan, you really dont want us to forget for one second that you have a deluxe groove?!

1) Fracture is beautiful, but equal to hasbro in my opinion, so no matter which option you go with you will win here!

2) Poor Groove. can't get anyone off his back for too long :BOT:

"Oh, you want Deluxe Groove as a mass market release? Well why didn't you say so? I'll just make him a Japanese mall exclusive that you can only get in a bundle and NEVER use his mold again.

That way, everyone wins! Right?"
