    Because America has never gotten any sort of version of any of these characters except for maybe some 3" non transforming figurines

    I'm in the speculation camp where Takara will use the Silverbolt mold with a remolded chest and new head. I understand they haven't deviated from Hasbro when it comes to torsos but there's always a first time for everything.

    It's not much of jury rig. Fits on just fine...aside from the fact he's hidden in the back.

    He WAS pretty cheap for awhile. I got mine loose and complete for $25. He's gone up since then, though...probably because of CW Liokaiser. Ebay will run you $75-$100.

    I wonder if this boxset will actually say Premium on it.

    There are pics of the box already released. It has the Platinum Edition branding.

    So ordered my CW Liokaiser, have this coming with him too:

    Too bad he only comes with one Arms Micron minicon. So got this set as pseudo-Breastforce partners. Can combine into a larger weapon also so a nice plus for combined mode. Might as well make the most of this set while waiting for Takara :lol

    Frankly, using these would make more sense:
    -Balo for Killbison's partner
    -Zamu for Drillhorn's partner
    -Hades for Hellbat's partner - he can also form a scythe for Liokaiser.
    -Either Baru or Gul as Gaihawk's partner
    -There aren't any proper lion minicons to use for Leozak, but Jida could be used.

    Never heard of them... Manga characters?

    I like Brawl. Weird waist aside, he is really nicely poseable, and looks very much like the cartoon/comic G1 model, down to the small "nebelwerfers" on his chest.

    Great suggestions! I imagine tracking them down is going to be a B though.

    Wait I must have missed something. Are some of the online retailers already spreading him around? Or is that from the SDCC brunch?

    Already in stock and shipping from some international retailers. Still held back to November in the US because it's an exclusive to one shop :lol 

    The pic Daimchoc posted is by Hobbybase.

    I don't think anyone paid too much mind to it; it was on the box displayed at SDCC. Someone from EE mentioned it was to acknowledge Liokaiser as a Combiner from the Japanese fiction, I believe.

    I must have missed it.. Cool. The last time they used the name Destron was for one of the Power Core Combiner sets.
