An homage to Yokuryu (1989) - Destron Light-Speed Soldier - www.tfu.info ?
Sorry, but I have no idea who the fuck that dude is, nor why you think Yukitron would be based off of him...
Color scheme, head (without helmet.)
there's nothing similar at all. especially not the head.
he's an original character. animated has those, you know.
should have more.
NOooooooo!!! Yokuryu is so dumb!! Literally.
I don't see it aside from the Yoku in both of their names they looks nothing alike.
That ain't him. He's an OC.
His name is Yoketron.
Not Yokitron, Yukitron, Yokutron or anything else.
Although Yukitron would make more sense.
I don't see much of a resemblance- not enough to pass it off as being intentional
Must be a homage to someone at TakaraTomy.
I bet Dai Atlas was replaced by this Yoketron in the last minute.
Dai Atlas was among the busts, no?
Here we go:
Yep, right next to Yoketron.
Personally, I'm glad for the new character - story-wise, it makes a lot of sense, and it is nice to have someone original join the lineup.
Hideaki Yoke. He was one of the guys who designed the original Transformers.
I don't have the screenshot handy, but on the other side of the busts there was also Devcon and Springer- plust some one I couldn't identify but it sorta looked like Superion's or Ultra Magnus' head.
if i'm correct, dai atlas did make a cameo appearance as one a hologram in the cybah-ninja-chambah.
I was thinking possible homage to Action Master Banzai-Tron, but that doesn't really pan out either.
There's nothing wrong with original characters. Not everyone has to be a copy or homage to someone from the past. People like Bulkhead, don't they? (I do)
I like him and my wife thinks he's cute. I'd consider Prowl to be a new character.
When he first said his name I thought they said Unicron. I was like WTF and rewound it and sighed a relief.
http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Hideaki_Yoke....pretty much confirmed on twitter.
I thought the characters name was Yogi-tron as in spiritual Tibetan monk like that guy who hung out with the Beatles.
Separate names with a comma.
