    Planet Iacon has put up clearer images of the three variant comined forms. Reasonably sure that these are the clearest we've seen yet.

    Images are on their facebook page here.

    New picture of the combined Ninja Team is up here as well.

    It looks like the Generations Data Disks will be incorporated into the show. Perhaps they're the rumored Pokeball-like devices used to capture Predacons.

    These suck but if both teams combine to form a 6-member gestalt I might get them.

    So what this is all about? An original japanese anime? TV Magazine-only story? Sequel to Beast Hunters? Butchered japanese version of Beast Hunters? Japanese TF movie?

    These look like Brave stuff, not TF.

    Fire engine as the head looks like the best combined mode for the samurai team to me. I like it enough not to cancel my preorders. Maybe the other two will look better in person.

    I'm a fan of the Brave style of toys... wish I'd never sold off my MPB-01. These guys excite me.

    So glad there's nearly nothing left at retail I want. I can start saving money!

    Oh wow the concept was exciting but the execution is pretty bad... They all look crap in any combination! So lanky... I'm a bit deflatted now.

    I was expecting an awesome update to powerlinx combiners. I think if I get these guys they are just staying uncombined forever.

    They look good, but as a TF fan i'm not interested in these because the fiction is lacking. If I dont really care about the character I am not buying the toy.

    Surprise surprise, they're both Autobots. Never fail to let me down, TT.

    Ah, Takara. Forever afraid to make "bad guy" toys.

    On another note, about the only thing about Go! that interests me is how the story is apparently a weird, Japan-only continuation of Beast Hunters; I'd like to see what weird stuff they do to make it fit Prime canon. Otherwise, I'm mostly just bemused at how...Japanese it all is.

    So instead of tiny legs the ninja's combined mode just has super thin legs. What is it with GO and bad legs?

    I'm rather perplexed Taktomy had many years of experience of doing combining 'bots (some good & some bad), from the G1 era, the 90's Brave era, RID & last but not least Superlinx/Energon era.

    Haven't they learnt any lessons from those time periods, on what works & what doesn't? From the overall looks of the TF Go! Combiners they sure do look nice but the execution & the end result are rather poor & unsatisfying... :(

    Man, the better the pics of these get, the worse the figs look.
