Taobao seller bleach_???? has listed an auction on the Chinese auction site for a the TakaraTomy version of Transformers Animated Shockwave. You can view the auction here and see the mirrored image below.
The latest issue of TV-Boy (Terebi-kun) contained an article about Transformers Animated and confirmed that the show will start airing in Japan in April (the usual time for new anime series) on TV Aichi. The issue of TV-Boy also came with a DVD where Optimus Prime, voiced by Jiroki Takahashi, gives an introduction to the series.
The magazine once again talks about how the show will be set within the Movie Universe (something it seems that a lot of people missed despite it being reported several months ago, at least it was right here), which is why Bulkhead's name was changed to Ironhide (again this was explained in months ago).
You can view some images of the magazine below, expect a full gallery of this and other Japanese hobby magazines later this evening.
Whilst we wait for Yokobarion, we have updated our Winter Wonderfest 2010 gallery with more images showing the Transformers Animated, Transformers Revenge, Transformers Disney Label and Transformers Device Label (including Blaster, who once again we want to reitterate was never cancelled - only delayed).
The Japanese release of Transformers Animated was shown off at the recent Winter Wonderfestival event in Japan. The toys show off the new metallic paint apps as well as the Japanese packaging and new Transformers Animated logo.
Both the packaging and logo have similarities to the Transformers Movie releases in Japan, as a lot of the text is in English rather than Kanji, Hiragana and Katakana.
We hope to have more images from the 2010 Winter Wonderfestival later.
