New Takara Product Images – Adventure & Q-Transformers

TAVVS05 Drift Origin & Jazz Battle Mode

Yesterday we reported on TFSource’s new listings for upcoming TakaraTomy product. Now the listings have been updated with photos!

For October product, we first have TAV30 Battle Grimlock, a retool of Fall of Cybertron Voyager Grimlock as Robots in Disguise Grimlock, which is sure to be a hit with fans looking for an in-scale line-up of the RID cast. He’s joined by TAV31 Black Shadow, the first Japanese release of the 2011 Generations Sky Shadow figure, and TAV32 Rumble & Frenzy, a seeming re-release of United Rumble & Frenzy. From the Easy Dynamic line we have Takara’s versions of One-Step Changers Drift and Fracture (represented here by the Hasbro versions), whilst Q-Transformers brings us Black Megatron and Black Convoy, redecoes of the previous Megatron and Convoy figures.

In November, we have TAV33 Optimus Prime Supreme Mode, a retool of the large TAV21 Optimus figure based on the character’s season-finale upgrade from the Robots in Disguise cartoon, complete with the Prime Decepticon Hunter sword and new Mini-Con connection points. Also in Adventure is TAV35 EZ Collection Autobot vs Decepticon Set, collecting the Legion figures of Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Steeljaw and Underbite, and TAVVS05 Drift Origin & Jazz Battle Mode. Jazz Battle Mode currently has the regular Takara Jazz figure as a placeholder, but we can see that Drift Origin features a new G1-inspired head and white color scheme, with some yellow that calls to mind the character’s Decepticon look as ‘Deadlock’. TAVVS06 Strongarm Battle Mode & Sideswipe Battle Mode & Fixit is also due out that month, but is yet to have an image listed. Finally we have Takara’s version of Three-Step Changer Sideswipe.

Finally, due for a December release is TAV34 EZ Collection Team Bumblebee vs Megatron Set, which collects the Legion figures of Bumblebee, Strongarm, Sideswipe and Megatronus.

Callum somehow managed to avoid Transformers during his actual childhood, but then the live-action films piqued his interest, Animated suckered him in, and IDW's comics made sure he stuck around.
