    Pretty old. I wouldn't say that's a Yellow Giant giftset, probably more like showing off stuff they've done/are doing. That image was in the Giant booklet. Here's a better version of the pic that I took when my friend got his Giant.

    Why would they rename it then?

    edit; if someone could link me to where on TFW these images first popped up that would be great.

    Not going to look through it for a link (long thread), but it was scanned and posted in the Giant thread. People saw it as soon as they got theirs in stock.

    I think those two headers are just story subsection headers. The bits underneath are sort of mini-stories like the ones we're getting from the United EX line - they tie Maketoys' releases together, after a fashion.

    Nothing about new releases, per se.

    What would be great is if someone could translate those little paragraphs for us. Would love to know what they say.

    Someone get me a nice, clear scan of the bottom section (none of this silly half-tilted nonsense) and I'll take a crack at it. I'm not about to drive myself squinty-eyed trying to look up the kanji as it is now, though.

    The top section's alright. I'll get off my lazy butt and confirm the kanji I think I recognize some time tomorrow or so if someone doesn't beat me to it or the thread doesn't get closed.

    I appreciate it, but unfortunately that's still too small for me to make out the lines in some of the kanji. :( 

    The section under "Encounter" is translated as follows:

    Japanese (with some furigana for the harder kanji):
    オリジナルジャイアントのチームは内戦の為に多くの難民(なんみん)と共に「スペースシップ」で「マザープラント」から脱出(だっしゅつ)した。
    その後、スペースシップは「スペースパイレーツ」に襲撃(しゅうげき)され、すべてのパワーとエネルギーを失い、宇宙を漂う(ただよう)事となる。。。
    数ヶ月の漂流後(ひょうりゅうご)、彼らは荒廃(こうはい)した惑星(わくせい)「ソフィロン」に不時着(ふじちゃく)し、「シンセン・コープス」と出会う事になる。

    English:
    During the civil war, the original Giant Team escaped from the Mother Plant on a space ship with many other refugees.
    After their escape, however, their space ship was attacked by space pirates and lost all power, leaving them adrift in space.
    After some months of drifting, their ship crashlanded on the ruined planet "Sofiron", where they met the "Shinsen Corps".

    (NOTE: The "Mother Plant" is probably "Maketoys-speak" for Cybertron.)
    (NOTE: "Shinsen" most likely means "fresh" (as in "fresh troops" or "fresh fish") or "newly-formed". I guess the meaning will be confirmed in the rest of the sections, but I'd guess it's maybe referencing the Giant 61 team?)

    Thanks BraveMax. I hope this Fallen is released first and the desert camo version comes later

    I do have a larger version of it but it seems like the forum reduced the size automatically when I post it.
    Hmmm....

    Link directly too the jpeg, or pm me the link?

    I just need the right-hand side. The left seems to be a bio for giant 61.

    (Edited the original translation... Some really ungrammatical parts. That's what I get when I try to translate late at night. I forget to clean up the grammar when I alter phrasing ;p)

    Why the hell did you bump this thread? We already know about the variants of the Mobain mold.
