TFyuki doesn't rest! As a follow-up to his Powerglide Tweet earlier today, he now brings us Transformers Adventure TAV-20 Cosmos (or Adams) in and out of package! He appears to have a more G1 toy accurate coloring as opposed to Hasbro's Legends Cosmos. Have a look at the pics below, and if you don't get lost in his blue eyes then head to the Energon Pub for some great discussion.

Not a fan of Legends? Obviously you haven't handled one then. Cosmos is the shining star of an already amazing line. You're seriously missing out if you pass on this mold.

I am not a big legends fan, but that doesn't mean I won't get this guy. ;)

Saying you're not a Legends fan followed by >:oP sends mixed signals there SS.

I drink coffee if I want. ;P

I actually have been tempted to get Cosmos, the original version of the generations mold. And maybe even Swerve.

That shocked me too. I like it though. We are getting Takara approved English names for our cataloguing pleasure. That further cements Shrapnel being the name for the Takara toy.

He is so good I had to make an exception in my upcoming Top 5 Scout Class figures to include him. He isn't a scout figure per say but he fits the description and initial mission statement of that class perfectly.

This mold is certainly the best Cosmos but I just wish it was bigger. Maybe Voyager's stretching it but I wouldn't mind a Deluxe. He's just too dinky compared to my main TF figures and I have no desire to get any other smaller ones.

Remember the flak the super sized Seaspray got? That one was supposedly an upgrade of the original G1 Seaspray.

Anyway, being part of the TAV line, anyone notice that he does not come with the interactive decal thingie? They couldn't find a spot for him?

Super sized? The Voyager one from a few years back? I had that figure. It was a fantastic update and at a nice size. Powerglide too (though I never had that one but it was nice to finally see a bit more sense in scale).

I like the extra detail you get with the larger figures though. Like if Cosmos here was even a Deluxe he might get much better looking forearms with decent hands and not so obvious screws...

I think the flak that Seaspray copped was more along the lines of the "Trukk not Munky" debate, ie "Minibots should stay minibots"

I have to say I love the new Cosmos mould, but a deluxe sized one would be that much better, and I'm still keeping an eye out for Seaspray...

With the US receiving its first airing of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise episode featuring Drift (voiced by Eric Bauza) this weekend, Takara Tomy designer Hisashi Yuki has tweeted a couple of comparison shots for the two companies' version of the character. Check out below the images showing the differences between Warrior class Drift (gallery here) and Transformers Adventure TAV-18 Drift, sporting a more accurate paint deco and application!

*****Praying thats sarcasm******

Its comparison shots like this that make me think what I do about takara. Theres not a person alive that can look me in the eyes with a staight face and tell me a different shade of orange and a few lousy paint apps doubles the production costs. Maybe back when they were doing shiny paint. (united) But this....naw, hell no.
