Fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999 has a new video review for us giving us the best look yet at Transformers Adventure TAV VS 05 Battle Mode Jazz & Origin Mode Drift.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Leave it to Takara to give us a set of figures with great paint jobs, and new heads. Jazz is the version of the character fans have wanted for a year, while Drift is an amalgamation of the movie, comic, and animated character. These are fantastic figures and worth a place in your collection.

Cobotron I got that same problem on getting another OP/Convoy into my collection and most times I end up getting it. :-P I did decided to pass up on TAV-21 when I saw first looks at TAV-33.

Thanks for your feedback on this epic looking figure. I'm actually glad TAV-33 doesn't have that lame spring loading gimmick, it doesn't need it. I can't wait when this gets to my doorstep! :DANCE: :VEHI:

What I think happened is the blaster from TAV-21 put a crack in it, that I couldn't see due to the paint, and putting the other weapons in the hand weakened it further. I can probably fix it but I don't have any proper glue in the house and even then, it'll never be usable again.

Had to look at mine after you said that. Mine seems good, for now :BOT:

TakaraTomyMall are holding a giveaway in time for the holidays on their Transformers Adventure line, by adding a free Ratbat minicon/micron to purchases over 3000 Yen. If you're in the minicon addiction club, this probably really interests you - or is bad news. Check out the little critter below!

So Ratbat is a special store exclusive in Japan, eh? Guess that's one way to get it over there.

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):

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

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

#thestruggleisreal

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!
