    Do we know if this thing has anything the separate releases do not?

    The reasoning for it is a little lost on me.

    Ijust want it to have more accurate paint apps. The shield master (or whatever it was called) looks nice but the darker colours I'm not liking.

    I don't know.... I would to see the box: I don't like that weird combo so I didn't get that Unicron but if the box is cool to display I could be tempted :p  If it won't be so, I'll pass without problems (I just got pratically all the important molds of Prime OPs) ^_^

    I would like an accurate paint job, too so we don't have to deal with something like reprolabels

    Here is the original link.
    Transformersasia.com

    It shows the Optimus who is a metallic paint and doesn't have clear forearms (they're probably painted over) and Unicron (who has additional purple details & chrome). Even Optimus's Micron has some paint apps it seems. It's one of those Transformers Asia exclusives.

    Roboykingdom says it'll be Year of the snake themed so also the paint... It'd be out in late december.

    Makes me want to sell current ones for these. Though I'm sure the price will be ridiculous.

    Those purple "paint" apps are probably just stickers.

    Aw man, not THAT Optimus again. :S

    Okay, he's not that bad of a figure I guess. But Takara-Tomy likes to keep pushing him out the door. That and I guess I'm just spoiled by Weaponizer's nifty spinny guns. Pew pew!

    Perhaps, perhaps not. They seem to have painted a lot of the details that were previously stickers for this version.

    Well they have to use the Optimus that can combine with Unicron. The Weaponizer is bigger than Unicron too.

    Well here's the thing. Everything on TransformersAsia.com has TakaraTomy involved. Most solely TakaraTomy. This one has Hasbro involved too.

    I think this is more likely to be an Amazon.com exclusive though like the other CNY (Chinese New Year) stuff.

    To be fair, that is the only Prime designed to work with Unicron.

    Anyone notice the Hasbro logo? Is that normally on Arms Micron boxes? Or is this because it's getting an Asian release? Either way, it makes a US release of Unicron a tiny bit more likely.

    If they would have officially announced this sooner they could have got a lot more money out of me. But now I already have a Unicron and even though I like it, I don't need to buy it twice.

    And what exactly is that combined mode supposed to be? Is it a Battle Cape?
