Meet Mito Prime

Mito-Prime

Yet another one of the Japanese friendly neighborhood Primes has been revealed. Mito Prime is the name of this one, based on Generation 1 Hound (by way of his Legends toy). He is the mascot of the Mito region, with a Transformers version of the Tokugawa triple-hollyhock crest as a reference to the history of the area.

    It's "Legends Hound with a mustashe impersonating Swindle Prime!"

    I think the really interesting thing here is that all of these have been very clearly based on Legends toys.


    -ZacWilliam, that certainly opens the door for an easy and cheep repaint set.

    What he's holding looks almost like a TF version of the Tokugawa triple-hollyhock crest? Kind of makes sense, considering Mito was directly controlled by the Tokugawa for a while...

    Oh - and he's probably purple for plum blossoms and gold for the Tokugawa crest?

    the color placement almost makes him look like impactor if you think about it.

    I don't get it...why?

    So Mito is a reign or some sort of area? Why a transformers as a mascot?

    Give me a Yokkaichi Prime and I will be ecstatic. Then maybe a Takasago Prime and a Matsudo Prime. Nagoya was so close, but I want Yokkaichi!

    This is part of TakaraTomy's Prime marketing campaign. A number of districts in Japan get their own unique mascot/guardian Prime character.
