Takara's Fall of Cybertron figures out shine Hasbro's


Wouldn't know they were in a full-scale war looking at them

There had been some speculation that Takara Tomy wouldn't be getting the new Transformers: Fall of Cybertron figures for Japanese release. After all, the game isn't being released there and the Shockwave figure has already been announced for a Transformers: Prime release. As it turns out, just like the bots themselves things can change pretty quickly.

Takara Tomy is now accepting pre-orders for their version of TF:FoC Optimus Prime and Jazz. While they use the same molds as the the Hasbro releases they feature a more complex paint scheme than their Hasbro counterparts including a metallic shine. However they also have a price to match as both figures will retail for around ¥2,800 each and will kick off a new Transformers Generations line launching in December. Optimus Prime is being designated TG01 and Jazz will be TG02. Don't be surprised is the next set in the series is the Combaticons.

I admit, I'm considering paying the extra for the Takara Tomy versions, they just look so good! Jazz especially looks like an entirely different figure. That December release is a little troubling, though. So much good stuff coming out during the holidays...
