    The prospect of new United figures makes me tingly, but then I remember all the old repaints from the last wave. Sigh, just wait and see I suppose.

    I could definately see Roller Master vs Chopper Master being 2010 Breacher and Chopsaw.


    -ZacWilliam, would not be surprised to see Breacher presented as being Prime's Roller unit. Though I'd rather see it as Action Master Rollout

    I'm interested, but also wonder if this will just be another wave of repaints.

    You know, if they want some easy G1-cash, why are they so resistant to an Ultra Magnus? They've done far less apparently logical things with United than that.




    ...can we take these as some sort of indicator that Generations will be moving up a price point?

    (working on the presumption these are to become Generations items at all)

    On the other hand, maybe it's just Takara using old molds, and padding the price, again.

    Edit: Going by those names, starting to wonder if they've simply bolted movie inspired accessories onto the Henkei/Classics Prime mold?

    Those be some goofy/interesting names. Are they six per case of one figure? Or is that the name of the assortment?

    Not really. I'd take it as an indicator that two old US basics are being sold together in Japan as a Voyager set as they have before.

    As for the other two larger ones, they could literally be anything at this point.


    -ZacWilliam, myself I'm kinda guessing Movie Optimus's but that's pretty baseless pessimism I admit.

    perhaps they're tackling that unreleased Unite for the Universe Jet Prime? The movies may be done for a while but I would still love a better version of that combination. Probably just wishful thinking...

    No.

    Hasbro Asia is an entirely different entity from Takara Tomy.

    United is Takara Tomy's Japanese aimed thing. Hasbro Asia's repaints are a seperate thing aimed at a seperate market (China and non-Japan asian markets).


    -ZacWilliam, plus, even if you didn't know that, none of those toys really match these descriptions at all.

    Power Core Combiners, maybe? I remember something a while back where a Takara guy said they had something planned for them.

    Yeah, I think you are right! Prime mode could mean combined mode, while the 2 pack could be a set of 2 PCC Commanders.
