Unite Warriors Ultra Prime Teaser

Posted on 05-24-2015 at 02:02 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
CFvrrBNVAAEpINt Hot off the back of the reveal of the Takara-Tomy release of Defensor for Japan, Hisashi Yuki has tweeted a teaser of a Unite Warriors version of Ultra Prime. The silhouette in the teaser has the distinctive head design of Ultra Prime, and we can also make out some parts of the Stunticons in the silhouette, which matches up to the rumored lineup of the "Masquerade" Autobots - Prowl (Dead End, right arm), Mirage (Dragstrip, right leg), Sunstreaker (Breakdown, left leg, based on the foot component), and Ironhide (Offroad, left arm).

No word on how this one is getting a release in Japan, but we'd bet on this being a mass retail release - for those crying, why is this not an exclusive, remember, Japan loves their hero characters, and things in Transformers do not get much more heroic than Optimus Prime!

Kabaya Piranhacon / King Poseidon Candy Toys

Posted on 05-23-2015 at 03:36 AM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
R9nHZ40 Via Snakas' blog we have learned that Kabaya has a candy kit version of Generation 1 Piranacon in the works!

Known as King Poseidon in Japan and featured as an antagonist in the 1988 series Chojin Masterforce, Piranacon was one of the coolest combiners of the Generation 1 era. He had six members based on sea creatures, the five smaller members of whom could make up limbs for the gestalt with the one left over becoming a gun.

This candy toy version, revealed in a banner ad on Syokugan Ohkoku looks to faithfully recreate that original, with the added feature of the smaller guns linking up into one huge rifle. According to Snakas, this one is due to arrive in July.

Takara-Tomy Unite Warriors Groove & Defensor further information

Posted on 05-21-2015 at 02:55 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
4904810831747 Since the reveal of the Takara-Tomy Unite Warriors Defensor earlier today, there has been some confusion as to the nature of the release of Defensor and the all-new Groove who is accompanying the set. We have undertaken a translation of the preorder page on Takara-Tomy Mall in order to hopefully clear things up for our readers. The key points are that, yes, this set is a Takara-Tomy mall exclusive in Japan, and yes, Groove is a new mold for this set which is being said is "unattainable overseas", whatever that actually means. Since we cannot use a web translator on the images on the page, we've just translated the text immediately after the banners - check out our translation after the break.

First Images of Unite Warriors Groove

Posted on 05-20-2015 at 09:54 PM by Jacer under Japanese Transformers
CFfx81BUIAACxvW New images from a hobby magazine started popping up on Twitter tonight. Among those images we get our first look at Unite Warriors Groove! We can clearly see that Groove is an all new mold for Unite Warriors Defensor! Also in the images we get our first looks at Adventures Powerglide, Cosmos, Drift, and a Steeljaw repainted into a Autobot police car.

Lastly we get a frontal shot of the Takara Armada Megatron that was teased earlier today as well as Black Convoy from the Reveal the Shield Laser Optimus Prime. According to the magazine, both figures will be available, most likely as event exclusives, at the Takara Tomy booth during the 2015 International Tokyo Toy Show being held at Tokyo Big Sight from June 20th to the 21st.
