    Could possibly be a unreleased product or possible new movie toy for next year.

    This is GDO Scout class Brawl. Not an unreleased product or anything new. I have this toy and think it's awesome.

    Perhaps he was just taking pictures of his toys, as he often does. Pretty sure that is all it is.

    Hoping for an MP Combiner. But that is really unlikely.

    From Twitter By Yuki
    I hope someone can do a perfect translate, because I think in this text he is saying something important about the Transformers

    Kinda sounds like he's saying "Hey, I'm not actually going to reveal new stuff on this account". The photoset just looks like his fan-photography that got misinterpreted.

    Pretty much, except Google is trying to translate it in "Bizarro".

    His posts are to say that from now on he will no longer be using the account to share new stuff. So he is instead going to take pics of older toys. Sadly that means "nothing to see here... ever".

    So Yuki will no longer do reveals through his twitter account? Has he ever actually made a reveal through Twitter? I thought he only showed progress on the MP Star Saber prototype. OR is he saying he will no longer do that as well?

    Yuki was the guy who'd always be tweeting teasers about upcoming stuff. Especially the Unite Warriors sets. Which *sucks* because if we're losing our only source of info before official announcements then we're not going to know about a potential UW Liokaiser as early as before. I mean, there's still a few months until the Entertainment Earth listings for CW Liokaiser....but now we have to hope Takara says something substantial.

    He has not made reveals per se, but he has often shown teasers of upcoming products as well as production versions well before the release of products. He has built hype and interest, so naturally the big corporation wants to shut it down. Likely someone complained about something or he was simply getting bombarded with requests. It may also be that TakaraTomy's other designers don't like the high profile role it has given him since they are a team.

    Hopefully TakaraTomy's official account can become more like his account. I have noticed Hasui really doesn't go over stuff on his Twitter anymore until things are released.

    Yeah, I'd really like to at least get a hint of TT Liokaiser before the Hasbro one arrives. I'd prefer to make a more educated buying decision.

    Thank you guys & girls for the answers about the tweet by Yuki !
    One more question: Am I wrong if I understood something about new announcements from Takara this month ?

    Hmmm, hopefully this is not fallout from the potential MP Megatron leak......

    seems like he's going to try and get some info out when possible. Always did enjoy seeing something new on his Twitter.

    I don't get it. How do those pictures indicate that we're losing him as a source?

    I don't think it's the pictures, but the badly translated messages accompanying them.

    The quote suggests he won't be able to show off what he's working on as often or as early. Which could be a problem since we usually get early word on new stuff from teasers *before* even the silhouette.
