Having spent several days tallying results, the team at the official Transformers Facebook page have determined the winner of last week's fan choice vote. The next Titan Class toy after Fortress Maximus will be Trypticon! While the actual margins between choices have not been revealed, Trypticon seemed to be running strong in the fan response on voting day, making this little surprise. The Facebook post notes that we will have to wait until late

Taiyu Lin has posted an extensive gallery of the UW-03 Defensor set on Picasa, giving us a great look at the whole Protectobot team, including of course the long-awaited Deluxe Groove. Better looks at the packaging, including the team art featuring a baseball game, and the collector coin for this set are also included. While comprehensive side by sides weren't done, there is a photo of Unite Warriors and Hasbro Defensor together, as well as Deluxe vs Legends Grooves for comparison. Keep reading to check out the mirrored photos.
Perhaps attempting to distract from the unplanned reveal of Galvatronus, Hisashi Yuki went back to the regular photo tweeting schedule, sending out a shot of the packaging for UW-03 Defensor and UW-04 Devastator together.

Barely 24 hours since Hisashi Yuki tweeted a slightly less obscured silhouette teaser of the presumed UW-06 combiner, and article about TakaraTomy Mall on Yahoo Japan has provided our first frustratingly tiny look at the set. Seen in a group with all the other Unite Warriors sets, we can now start piecing together what the components are - and the clues at hand point to a very odd grouping. For his part, Hisashi Yuki in a subsequent tweet seemed dismayed at the premature release of a picture of the combiner. For more details and very sadly low-res images, keep reading!
