Sprocket of The Allspark Forums has posted news and an image for a Transformers Animated Japan promotion of super deformed Transformers character mini-figures. The image shows the mini-figures as illustrated drawings and their unpainted prototypes.
Get a preview of Animated SD Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Prowl, Ratchet, Bulkhead (Ironhide) and Starscream that each comes with a short chain to hang on your cell phone.
Looking more closely at the image. We have come to the conclusion that these are likely products slated for release as in public capsule toys (gashapon) dispensers.
These are already commonly made by TOMY for sale in Japan and all over the world. We work really hard to be the best resource for all your Transformers news and reviews every day.
Stay tuned for more developments of the Japanese TFA scene.
