Japanese Animated toy commercial

A commercial for the Japanese version of the Transformers Animated toyline has made its way onto YouTube. This commercial advertises most of the the first wave's figures including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ironhide (Bulkhead), Prowl, Ratchet, Megatron, Starscream, Blackarachnia, and Lockdown (as well as Cliffjumper and Dirge being included at the end).

Like the commercials for previous Transformers toylines, this commercial features fast-paced stop-motion animation (instead of the toys being manipulated by human children like in the U.S. commercials). And as an extra treat, some G1 sound effects were thrown into the mix as the icing on the cake of this commercial.

Ya might wanna change the first link, it only goes to the youtube home page im not sure why you did that. Anyway I always like the Japanese color versions they add more character to the figure.

Because we're supposed to link to both the source's home and the source's specific page that has the news. It's the same case for wherever we find news at. We link to the source's homepage first, and then link to the specific page at the source that has the news.

See previous news posts from this past year and the years before that for more examples.

well the japanese toys look much better. i don't know if it's the advert for them or the colouration but i'm enclined to go with the advert. i've always been a sucker for a good advert and i have not been let down yet by the japanese with any tf i've wanted to get. the metalic paint looks much better also but i dislike the fact that bolkhead was changed to ironhide. it will take some serious redubbing to retcon animated in to the movie line even as a prequel
