Transformers: Animated Coming to Japan

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has finally been released in Japan. As part of the inserts is news that Transformers: Animated is coming to the country as their next toy line starting March 2010 and I assume translated cartoons will start airing at some point. Their name for the toy line has not been revealed. I expect they will get all versions of the toys that were released stateside with Tomy Takara adding their own additions as they see fit. For Transfans in North American this mostly means that you will get a second chance to fill out collection gaps and grow it with Japan exclusive releases. (via TFormers)


  1. Are Japanese fans now coming to know him as Optimus Prime? He's been known as Convoy there for a long time. Or do they know him by both names?

  2. Just out of curiousity, I went to Google Translate and translated "Optimus Prime" to Japanese. This is what I got.


    Translated back to English, it's Convoy!

  3. Maybe this will give TFA a chance at a revival in America.... I can dream...
