    @TFYUKI: 「みどりの日」なので「みどりロボ」ツイートをしてきましたが、実はGWがGoldenでは無くGreen Week状態で、あのみどりの巨大ロボの国内仕様を絶賛検討中です! 近日公開出来る、かな? #みどりロボ http://twitter.com/TFYUKI/status/595219930183639040/photo/1

    'Has been "green robot" tweets "greenery day" since the fact GW Golden without Green Week in, raved about that Green Giant Robo domestic is full! Coming soon, maybe? #みどりロボ '

    When (if) they add the right paint, some of us might.

    ...although i hope i'm not one of them.

    Did people really think Takara wasn't going to release it? :D

    Uhhh......no.
    Don't care how good it might look.
    I've voiced my disdain for the lack of elbows on Scrapper and Long Haul enough times.

    I am interested but will probably opt for the hasbro version on this. Will be nice to see pictures and see what the differences are between the different versions. I am guessing paint apps will be somewhat different? Maybe some accessories will be different as well.

    I'm predicting a different shade of green, painted wheels and the all-important purple hands.

    This surprises nobody if true……I wonder if it will have the Zone add on kit (cape, drill, helmet, shield) from either Takara (from e Hobby or Cloud) or 3rd Parties

    Face might be gray instead of silver too (keeping the forehead silver).

    Some of the sticker like painted details on Hasbro's might be changed / removed.

    When I saw the picture on the front page I assumed this was yet another 3rd Party Devastator because it's a silhouette. Didn't catch on until I read the headline. Even then, I initially thought "Unite Warriors" was a new company name until I remembered it's just Takara Tomy's name for Combiner Wars. :lol

    All you need to do is throw another 50 at replacement arms from PE.

    (may not exist, yet)

    No one should be surprised about this as Hasbro specifically said they co-developed CW Devestator with Takara. And Takara's requirements are the reason its specifically a classic G1 Devy instead of an IDW Prowlestator.

    Personally I am only interested in getting the G2 version at SDCC... :D

    Wonder what will be different about this instead of the Hasbro one. Pricepoint is also a factor that I want to know.

    Well, Takara has been striving for cartoon accuracy with Unite Warriors, so chances are they'll tweak the shades of green and purple, paint the fists purple, and strip off some of the silver and red detailing.

    Eh. I'll keep waiting for a proper MP Devastator. This fits neither MP or Classics, IMHO.

    I'll stick with the domestic release if I even bother getting this.
