Japan List Suggest New TF 2 Character

TFormers.com has posted a list of Transformers toys from Amazon Japan. Most are known but there is one addition to the toy list that is new, called Chromia. Chromia (wiki) is a female character that goes back to the G1 days even though only appeared briefly in one of the episodes along with Elita-1. It provides additional evidence that one of the three bikes currently collectivity called Arcee might be three individual characters. Or it could simply be a repaint of the Arcee from the first movie's toy line.

You have to love the Japanese class naming conventions for their toy classes as it makes it so easy to keep track of a collection and much improved over the mess of the stateside method (which is no method). Hasbro should consider copying it. It is something that would encourage collecting (and therefore purchasing) of their toys. Let’s face it there are a lot of collectors and kids who lose track of what they own but if they knew they had RA-01 to 06, they would be that more likely to "complete" the collection by getting the rest of the numbering. At the very least they should try it.

The list, with links and release dates is here.

  7. Isn't Chromia Ironhide's girlfriend? (Or maybe it is only a trend in fanfiction...) This could make for interesting scenes in TF2.

    Honestly, I don't feel like I want gender-ed robots in the movie, but it's just a thought.

  8. I hope it could be Chromia and Moonracer coming along with Arcee

  9. 6 to 9 autobots landed in that desert so it very well could be.

  10. If Arcee was to be 8-12 feet high in TF1... do you think they would combine her with 3 to make her 20 or so feet tall or just have 3 other smaller transformers? Remember the protoforms coming to earth doesnt necessarily mean thats the exact amount of transformers. TF1 only had 4 protoforms coming to earth. Remember that the Decepticons hide better (supposedly) and many decepticons as planes or jets need not crash here with their cybertronian alts...

    More questions raised than answered as usual..

    I'm embarrassed to be using the same blog as you, you ignorant turd. If all you have to say is bigatory or dumb remarks to the guy who spends a hell of a lot of his time keeping us update with info there is no place for you here. So do this blog and the world a favour and go kill yourself you racist piece of shit.

    Sorry to everyone else for the rant and not for ignoring this uneducated wanker...

  16. Apparently Chromia is the name of the blue bike transformers one of three transformers who form arcee there names are:

    Chromia: Blue bike
    Firestar: Red bike
    Elita one: Pink bike

    Combined they form arcee who is only a little smaller than bumblee bee. There is also rumors of a scene where Sam ask Optimus why there are female transformers. It is also highly speculated that Arcee may be in love with Bumblee bee!

    The good thing is though atleast its not more toy news!

  17. What about the name of the TF which turns into a human? Maybe Chromia is the name of that one? Just a thought.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Above could be true. They did say this was from japan... Japans chromia is actually the female decepticon thunderblast. Who is also affiliated with sideways.

    Alice is a DECEPTICON Pretender. And no, we dont need an Autobot Pretender. Just an Autobot combiner to counter Devastator. Peace

  21. Um, isn't "Chink Talk" Chinese? My language is "Nip Talk", so you are not only a racist, but also an uneducated one. Isn’t there a way to block IP Addresses on Blogs?

    What I find sad is there isn’t a picture of Chromia (well at least I didn’t see any).

  27. 'Or it could simply be a repaint of the Arcee from the first movie's toy line.'

    I don't think it's likely, but I wouldn't mind if it was to be honest. My regular purple Arcee and my japanese imported Black Arcee are among my most favorite TF toys I've ever owned. Big fan of the mold and color schemes. I passed on the G1 repaint though as it looked far too girly and not worth the hassle to actually get one.

  28. The idea of 3 bikes that turn into one is ok but the comics doesn't lead me to believe that the character Arcee as portrayed in the comics is a combiner. Why can't we just have 3 individual bikes thats Arcee, Chromia and Elita-1? I hope we don't end up killing the combiner idea but what's the point when in the end, you have to go up against Devestator? I want to believe Jetfire will have something to do with the Superion idea because isn't he found in an airplane museum or something like that? I"m recalling the fact that they filmed a scene at Dulles Airport. Maybe there's other planes there and that's where Jetfire comes up with the idea to use jets to counteract the ground vehicles...the Constructicons.

  29. I still think the blue bike could pass a Blur. Not saying it is, but the silver antenna thing on it's head is like Blur's antenna thing and a wheel is faster than legs.

    (also hoping Bay reads this and relizes that Arcee as a combiner is bad, but 3 new TF's is good)

    Either way, it would be too late to change anything he has done now, unless all the seens with Arcce are being generated last.

  30. Why can't we just have 3 individual bikes

    Who says we wont?

    ReplyDelete
  31. i heard that the three bikes split into 6 unicycles.
    and chromia is one of these.

    also i heard that Jazz is a combiner in the new film, lower legs and chest combine to re-create him. i do not know what they are called separately, maybe Footloose and Chestor.

    last part is only a guess, so keep that in mind.
