Transformers Go G04 Gaidora is a Lazerback Redeco

We have some more information to pass along now regarding the new Transformers Go! line - specifically a little more information on the G04 Gaidora. As speculated, the new information that has come to light seems to confirm that Gaidora will be a redeco of Beast Hunters Lazerback. The listing, from Singapore site "The Falcon's Hanger", also suggests there will be a metallic deco.

The site also corroborates earlier reports that G01 through G03 (the three "Samurai" characters) will be combiners, capable of merging in three different forms. The information also suggests that G01 Kenzan Samurai will feature some level of light and sound features and will be priced more expensive than the others (about SG $30 more), but once again, no images are provided.

Massive lol at them using the MP prowl silhouette, that's going to cause a lot of confusion for some people here.

Those are by one of the Chinese companies that does knock offs and weird stuff.

Can't wait to see more news and pics from this new show. Wonder if the toys will have a classics/Generations feel? I wouldn't be shocked if that was the case.

I also hope one of the members is a fembot too. Hopefully it may be either the polcie vehicle or jet.
Galaxy Convoy
Hmm, metallic Lazerback = Takara Scourge?
Sol Fury
... did you just quote part of the Saikyo Yuusha Robo Gundan theme?


Anyhow, yeah those won't be them. I expect the designs to be more in line with current Prime toys or possibly Generations.

I hope it's a brawny Strika-esque fembot. After that Botcon Warpath remold thing, I'm itching for an actual masculine fembot instead of a male mold repaint.

That may be for the Fire truck too. That's not a bad idea too. Still we need more fembot toys all the same and let's hope that this would be a good place to start with. After all we have Arcee in TFP so far.

Hey, a Prime Firestar would be awesome.
Omnius
Multi-configuration combiners? I'm officially interested.
Fort Max
Just noticed that website has prices, going by those it seems the police car is a voyager and the jet/fire engine are deluxes. It also says the police car has lights and sounds but the other two don't.
Omnius
Is anyone else getting a Brave vibe from all this?
Fort Max
Absolutely, it's why I'm excited.

Yup, I'm day one on these toys provided the designs are good! There's a certain level of Ultraman in the use of the Predacon molds as Kaiju for the new robots to fight as well.

Heck, if the Predacon decos are different, I might pick a few of them up as well. Lazerback is a decent little toy.
Mechafire
I'm interested.

Regarding Lazerback, it sounds like they have indeed dropped the awful stickers in favor of a metallic paint job, which is nice.
Omnius
I've got this bad feeling this is going to send me on the long-avoided slippery slope toward collecting Brave.
Crystal Convoy
Really interested to see what these combiners end up being. Hopefully they don't look like crap.

I've never thought of it as being somewhat of an Ultraman homage! No I'm looking forward to them!

We've been friends how long and I've not got you on that slope yet? I'm slacking!

Mostly an observation on my part, the name "Gaidora" sounds a lot like the kinds of names I've heard on various Kaiju along the way. It does fit with the style of the toys though - Ripclaw in particular I see a little bit of Deszaras in, and he's widely accepted to be a "kaiju" in his alternate form.

I think it's funny that the smaller vehicle receives the larger toy.

This Go stuff looks bad. Why didn't takara just take the beast hunters line and use it? The combiner mode will probably suck worse

Really curious to see what exactly these things are.

You haven't seen them yet, and takara are releasing beast Hunters toys.

I know that, but not all of them, right?
And yes, I have seen Go 1-3 and they look crappy and the combine will most likely suck

Are you talking about these? Because they aren't Transformers. They're a Chinese toyline called Robo Revolution.
Superwheeljack
Cursed Chinese ripoffs, sorry guys, made a HUGE MISTAKE
Fort Max
Yeah, that thing looks cool, keep thinking about putting an order in with sir toys.
Gryph
Oh yeah, besides Brave, this reminds me of one of my other favorite combiners. The original combiner, in fact.

CHANGE GETTAAAAAAAAAAA!
Superwheeljack
I still want the metallic repaint of lazerback

TRU near me has empy pegs of Transformers GO! for like $11.99. Not sure which ones they are supposed to be.

That doesn't make any sense. It's just the Japanese Beast Hunters line with extra figures. You need to take a photo before anyone will believe you.

Is just like what they do for the AM Wildrider,AM Ironhide,AM Frenzy & Rumble which are characters not in the show at all.
