Possible new Japanese Animated redecos?

The official website for the Sega of Japan arcade games, Transformers Animated The Chase and Transformers Animated the Shooting, has gone live and brings with it some rather interesting images. This website, like the games themselves, is card-based and has display galleries of some of the cards used to be swiped in the games. The Robot Mode cards are for The Shooting and the Vehicle Mode cards are for The Chase.

But what's interesting is that some of these cards appear to have images of what appear to be some brand new redecos of certain Animated figures. The cards in question are as follows:
* Chromia
* Midnight Jazz - Vehicle Mode, Robot Mode
* Super Sonic Blurr - Vehicle Mode, Robot Mode
* Blackarachnia Elita One Ver.

It is currently unknown if these will be actual figures, or if they're just images for the cards to be used in the arcade games.

Other cards give us a glimpse at some yet-to-be released Japanese Animated figures like Wreck-Gar (altmode), Autobot Sentinel, Elite Guard Bumblebee (altmode - also note the yellow head instead of a black one), Rodimus, Safeguard, Swindle (altmode), and Waspinator.

Too bad they didn't continue the series, because there were so many loose ends or possibilities that weren't even put into motion. I mean they still have time to bring back the show, but we'll never know.

Season Four info is included in the AllSpark Almanac II book.

Still haven't grabbed my copy of that book yet. Can't wait!

I asked a Takara rep at a Hasbro designers panel, if there was any chance that if TFA sold well enough in Japan, if Takara might continue/expand the line, perhaps make an Omega Supreme. The Takara guy didn't speak english well enough, so Aaron Archer grabbed the mike and said, (in so many words, "no." ... I was bummed....
