    is Takara planning on a United Warpath release? I am thinking of getting the Generations version but since he is going for near the price of a United figure I may wait to see.

    There's been no public announcement of a United Warpath, no. If they're planning one, they're keeping it to themselves.

    It would be astonishing to learn of a Tkara release for Warpath this late in the game. Maybe next year...

    Maybe Warpath is our (US) trade off for not getting Frumble.

    It would be funny if TakTom releases him as some sort of exclusive, but no change to the paint apps. See how much more the "Japanese" version goes for because of a Japanese sticker slapped on the package. As in amazon jp exclusive Dead End. (I don't think many people were fooled by that one though :) )

    Takara will no doubt release the toy in some form, but it won't be under United. United is dead and done, aside from any exclusive repaints along the lines of the Gentei releases for Henkei.

    Aye, he'll be in the next run of G1 post movie figures.

    They should call it RE-United.

    Really, I've seen a few for 35 on this board today. I'd not be dragging my feet getting one if I were OP.

    There's been no announcement that United will pickup post-DotM in Japan, so unless they're holding out on that too and randomly pick it up later, the thinking is while Generations may continue here, any new releases (or stuff that hasn't been released by Takara yet) will be released in a successor to United that could appear at the end of this year (United started at the end of last year, a few months after the initial Generations releases.

    Did Takara belatedly release some Binaltech figures and TFC reissues after the initial bunch? I guess there might be some precedent for belatedly picking up on United instead of just opting for a "new" line, but at this point I wouldn't expect it.

    Hmm. . .

    I think Takara can still do 2nd run re-releases and United exclusives this year.

    Re-releases and exclusives? Definitely. Gentei Dark Skyfire came out well after Henkei ended, if I remember correctly, so it's possible (likely?) we'll see stuff under the United name a while after the United line officially "ends," like with the upcoming Stepper exclusive from Million Publishing. Exclusives tend to be redecoes only though (the clear Mirage and Starscream, Strafe w/no remolding, Dark Skyfire, the Seekers, though Dirge at least got new wings); the United Stepper getting a Targetmaster is at least a mild surprise even if it makes sense based on the original toy. Warpath getting a release as an exclusive is possible, but doesn't really follow previous history.

    Could/would Takara do a "USA Edition" like they've done with other stuff?

    Who knows? Maybe Takara might have their Windcharger.
