    Unicron.com has unveiled their 4th custom Accessory pack, this time a set of Golden Disks with a "reader" that attachs to TM Megatron's tail weapon.

    To go along with this, the writers for the Beast Wars show, Larry DiTillo and Bob Forward have each written a small introduction featured on the outside of the package.

    The Lukis brothers were nice enough to allow us to check it out early, so we have posted up a quick photo shoot of it in action. You can check that out here:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/gallery/showgallery.php/cat/1125

    I was going to do a full-on review of it, but bottom line is - it kicks ass. Perfectly molded, fits into the pre-existing peg hole without issue, the disks are awesome, and it comes in a well done package. Pictures speak for themselves. Great add on for the Beast Wars theme at this year's Botcon.

    To all our readers: Please do not attempt to copy the writing on the package from DiTillo/Forward into text and paste it on the boards, anywhere. Leave that as a surprise for those who attend Botcon. Full Transcripts will be posted by the Lukis Brothers soon after.

    You can check out their page for it here.

    These will be available for the first time at Botcon 2006 and eventually online via Big Bad Toy Store.

    Just so you know, the tail piece doesnt need to be broken to do so, its a peg situation, can reapply the tail end afterwards no problem.

    Didn't they make that for Iacon One? I did that whole non-attendee package for that con, and got the golden disks with Megs attachment...could have sworn it was made by Unicron.com.

    The packaging looks way different though (much better IMO) and there wasn't a story included with the stuff for Iacon One, but the actual disks and attachment look the same.

    Cool that they are making it available to everyone now if it is the same stuff, and also like that they improved on the presentation of it.

    Nice. I'll pick it up when it becomes available.

    Update: (most likely no one will read) Preordered from BBTS!

    Someone did, I have them and used them in my Battlescene entry. Great product, nice to see they'll be available again since their ebay value has gone nutty bananas.

    Yeah, the brown plastic crumbled apart on my TM Megs just last month. Makes me even more pissed it happened now, with such a nice accessory item available soon.

    Nice, May have to get it, eventhough I never opened my TM megatron. Sounds like it was a good idea.

    I'd buy one, but all I have is Predacon from Armada. Hear that Hasbro, we need a reissue with sturdier plastic (and if possible, no chrome). And throw in TM Primal as well.

    yeah, I thought Unicron.com was a partner for the iaconone set.

    These appear to be the same apart from the packaging. Did people miss that they existed? They're plenty sweet. My solution to not replacing TM Meg's tail every time...I got another tail :)
