    That's one impressive Superion! Can't wait to see where the Combiner Wars series goes.

    I really like Takara's white fists/feet, they look alot more appealing, although I think its kinda too late, I pretty much all-in'd on Hasbro's Superion here, just waiting on deluxe wave 2 for Air Raid xD

    Nippon-Yasan has their pre-order up as well:

    https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figure...ransformers-unite-warriors-uw01-superion.html

    I've ordered my MP Magnus from them and they do not charge you until it is in stock and ready to ship. An advantage with them is that you could order in Yen and if the currency is stronger against the yen when Superion is released, you would end up paying less. On the flip side, you could end up paying more if the Yen is stronger.

    I suggest going with HLJ over AmiAmi at this point, I have a feeling shipping is going to be much more than expected.

    So atleast with HLJ if you choose to put it into the private warehouse and if shipping is too expensive you can just return it. As HLJ accepts returns from the private warehouse.

    Preordered at HLJ and put into my private warehouse. I'll save by having it shipped with my VF-19 Advance.

    So I'm guessing that Slingshot and Wildrider we found in the system wasn't real afterall. :(

    The hot money is on them being TRU exclusives, which wouldn't get shown at Toy Fair.

    That means nothing.They're showing waves 1-3, it's safe to assume Slingshot and co. are wave 4+

    Hmmm... This is tempting. Too bad I already bought all of wave 1. Thinking about grabbing a couple more of the jets in wave one just so I can at least have an all jet Superion.

    Here's hoping to having matching feet/hands as well. Makes me look forward to it.

    Not to try and take this thread off topic, but...

    Any word on Takara doing Menasor or the other combiners? I would be far more inclined to grab a Takara release over the Hasbro release (especially if they keep doing them as sets like Superion).

    ^It's pretty safe to assume they're going to do all the Combiner Wars teams, at the very least the G1 based ones. Especially since this numbered as Unite Warriors 01.

    I'm waiting for the Takara Stunticons myself because I'm hoping they'll make Motormaster's truck mode black instead of that ugly grey color Hasbro did. And Wildrider of course.

    There is actually a lot more room for improvement on the Stunticons than there was on the Aerialbots so I agree, I am looking very forward to seeing what they do.

    Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if a TakaraTomy Motormaster ended up with a lot more black. Since his entire body save for his arms and head were black in the cartoon and as you mentioned his cab in var mode.

    I would love to see what Takatomy has in store for their United Warriors line. Maybe a possibility to make a deluxe Streetwise bike??
