Transformers Go! First Images of Combiner Figures, Gaidorah

Site sponsor Robot Kingdom has updated their preorder listings for the Transformers GO! combiner figures. Original listings of these figures had fans perplexed on what they might be or how they might combine. Robot Kingdom has been kind enough to shed some light on the future releases. Shown here are G-01 Kanzen (The police Car), G-03 Ganoh (fire truck) and G-02 Jinbu (Jet). The three figures can combine by one robot becoming the legs, the second a torso and the third bot becomes the head, shoulders and arms. One might compare it to Robots In Disguise Rail Racer with Transformers Energon's swapability. Others will definitely see the designs as a homage to Brave as well.

Also revealed is G-04 Gaidorah, a Transformers Go! redeco of Beast Hunters Lazerback.

Click on the title bar to check out the images of the figures.

Update - TFSource has sent us updated, clearer images of the four releases, showing a clearer look at the Kenzan, Jinbu and Ganou, and Gaidorah, revealing he has a new head not seen on Lazerback.

That looks Brave-tastic.
Valkysas
God damn. Those look cool.
Dinodigger97
Are these guys Decepticons or Autobots?

I think this one's an Autobot combiner, IIRC.

REALLY neat, IMO.

God Max is that you??? I need that.
Lbsammills51
That is pretty fucking cool.
Tarngold
HHHNNNNNNGGGGGGG!!!

Takara must have found the stash of good drugs the Brave artists were taking.

These are a must have!
Primal Sabbath
So are these supposed to be deluxe sized, or are they Cyberverse sized?
WhiteMocha
Hm. Was looking forward to seeing these, but from these fuzzy pics they look a little underwhelming. A bit too Brave for me, I think; my tastes tend to run in the other direction. In bot mode they almost look like... and I feel sort of bad even saying this, and hope to be proven resoundingly wrong... Roadbots.

But I'll wait for better pics to make a final call. The vehicle modes look nice. I'm pretty firmly of the opinion that you can never have too many Transformers emergency vehicles.

For those prices, they aren't cyberverse.
General Tekno
Also, the cop car clearly has electronics in it, which explains the higher price.

I'm curious if it's just lights, or lights and sounds.

Looking at these modes though... in the firetruck chest mode, looks like the truck and cop car combine to form the body while the jet becomes the legs... while with the cop car chest configuration, the legs are the firetruck and the jet is the midsection.

Very interesting.

I may have to look into them, then. With my luck they'd be main cast characters and I'd miss out on them, because we know Hasbro isn't bringing them our way.
General Tekno
And RobotKingdom just added pics of the jet and the TakaraTomy Lazerback redeco; added to first post.
ORIO
Preorders kept for now! Definitely want to see more.
SG Roadbuster
They look pretty cool. and really do hope that Hasbro decides to bring them stateside, but can understand if they don't they look pretty damned exceedingly japanese.
archieboy
That looks very promising. Three configurations for the combined mode? Way to go, Takara.

And yes, I too love how Brave-esque this is turning out.
Souffle
Super cool. This SCREAMS Brave series.
DJW107PRIME
Those are neat.
SPLIT LIP
These are killer.
Agent Adam
I'm liking them so far, can't wait for clearer pics.
The 12th Prime
They all look bad ass! Love the Lazerback deco. All will be bought, because everyone has a price!
TCracker
BRAVE. Yes. Oh, god. YES.
Sovietbot
The second link is similar to the first. Here is the second link about: "Takara Transformers Go G-03 Ganoh Samurai (Fire truck)".

Was almost expecting a 3 headed gold dragon.

A little bit hard to make out all the details, especially since these pictures seem out of proportion (looks like they've been stretched horizontally a bit too much), but they definitely have a Brave vibe to them, for me too, and I dig that. The interchangeable three-part combiner idea looks neat, too. I don't know how this is going to turn out, but I'm looking forward to it either way, and I might even just pre-order them if I decide I can fit them into my budget.
bigpink
Hmm... these look like Power Rangers stuff right now. Red Ranger Fire Engine, Blue Ranger Police Car, and Yellow Ranger Jet. Combine and reconfigure your Rescue Zords! We just need a Black or Green something or other and a Pink or White something or other and we have all five. Maybe they'll do another release of three more in another color set and those will combine with these three.

Seriously, I need WAY better pics. I'll hang onto the pre-orders for now, but it better look better soon. Also, if these look really good in way better images, could they not be the Rescue Bots in a more tween friendly way?

The repaint of Lazerback is cool, but I expected more purple and a richer red/yellow color set. Green is unexpected, but as a third repaint. I'll pass on this too. Oh and is that a new head sculpt?
Feralstorm
Yay, previously unproduced Brave designs that don't really fit in. It's like Beast Wars 2nd and Car Robots all over again!
Fort Max
Brave is back, let the gattai addicts rejoice! : D

Also, hate to be picky but the thread title needs a small correction. These are the samurai team, the ninja team is (presumably) the con counterparts and has yet to be seen.
Predaking
Very funky looking. Almost don't look like a TF toy. Don't know how I feel about them just yet.
Fort Max
Hasbro should let Takara off the leash more often.
KenjaminLinus
They are so Brave, and that is awesome!!! Really excited for these guys.

So each pack is a set of 3 identical robots that combine into a big un. Is that correct?

Not sure what I think. TFs from another time and place (place = Japan ; ). Too bad the police car looks pretty cool, or it might have been an easy pass for me

Too many great 3P robos these days...
Shatterblast
I kind of have to wonder if these were part of a new Brave series at their inception but were later shoehorned into being Transformers. I'm personally not digging them, but I'm glad all the fans of the Brave aethetic have been thrown a bone for once.

Three figures, sold separately that combine in three different configurations.
soundwaverulls
I think I'm probably going to have to buy these. They definitely look like the best combiners in a while. Especially considering that they have at least three ways to combine but none of them are individual limbs.

The only thing I'm disappointed by is fire truck's robot mode. It looks like it needs a bigger head and arms and better paint apps. Also I don't like that the jet is bright yellow. But I can over look those things and I'm definitely looking forwards to seeing more of these. IMO, 2013 is turning out to be a great year TF toy wise.

Also, I'm to have to look up what Brave is.
Fort Max
My only complaints/concerns are that the fire engine has a tiny head (his combo head is awesome though) and that the police car seems to have a stonking backpack in bot mode but given he's packing electronics that's hardly surprising.

Early days but I think I'm going to have to declare the fire engine on top as my favourite so far.
Xformermike
I'm definitely getting the Brave feel too. Particularly that shot of the police version of the combiner. I think that's due to the arms. It reminds me of the Brave Silverion combiner. Although the pictures are blurry I can clearly see they are detailed and probably pretty cool.

So it's guaranteed to be an Asian exclusive TF line then? ...Damn... I hate spending so much to get foreign Transformers.
Hiro Prime
I can see why Hasbro isn't bringing them over to the US right now. They don't match the Prime style of toys very much. That's not to say they don't look good, just that they don't seem to fit in with the current line.
ZacWilliam
So I'm seriously considering Hosehead, Siren, and NightJetBeat here.


-ZacWilliam, may decide he likes them more as new characters but right now the idea of bringing that trio back is kinda fun.

The police car as the top reminds me of God Max (despite God Max having a jet as the top of the body).
Digilaut
Eh...they look cool, I guess. But I'm just not really feeling them. Still, nice that they can combine in different ways.
MegaDolrailer
Very Brave-y indeed, they even do that thing where all their individual weapons combine to form the combiner's weapon!

The way you can stack them on each other for different combined modes reminds me of Getter Robo or Albegas.
KenjaminLinus
You can totally customize three of the police car bot into a neo Road Caesar

Also, will there be another set of 3 for the Decepticons? Heard rumblings of a ninja team, but don't know if that's been confirmed.

How much you wanna bet they'll be purple like the Brave ninjas?
Cal
So the combiners are interchangeable as to who gets top bunk? That's a novelty I've never seen before. These early screenshots certainly look promising, but we really need better quality pics to do these figures justice.
guard convoy
I need those

Listings posted yesterday had three japanese character names which all featured "maru" which is something to do with ninjas.
