With Hasbro's Computron not even in stock for two weeks, we're about to see the launch of Unite Warriors Computron which will hit Japanese retailers on August 27th. Some online stores have already gotten their supplies and begun filling preorders, while retailers elsewhere in the world won't be far behind! To make sure everyone knows, Hisashi Yuki has posted what will probably be the last early photo, with the assembled Computron posed alongside its box. You can check that image out below - keep reading!
By way of Previews World, we have news of a case revision you'll want to know about! Titans Return Deluxe wave 2 will have later shipments seeing the return of the wave 1 Deluxes, with one each of Hardhead, Scourge, Blurr, and Skullsmasher. These will ship alongside two each of Chromedome and Highbrow. Though it's often hard to predict how prevalent remix cases like this will be at general retail, it's probably a good idea to make sure to get Mindwipe and Wolfwire (Weirdwolf) as soon as you can. Might this feature Skullsmasher with improved joint tolerances? Or just be extra chance to army build Sweeps? Let's wait and find out!
TakaraTomy designer Shogo Hasui has tweeted an image showing some of the control art used in developing Victorion - or the remolds that led to Pyra Magna anyway. Featuried prominently is part of a turnaround for the Victorion head, as well as it superimposed over a CAD model of the Hot Spot mold's torso mold. It's likely this posting was inspired by the reveal of Megatronia last night, which will be Japan's first instance of this set of retools. We've mirrored the image, so click through and take a look!
Our final gallery from the SDCC and Hasbro Toy Shop exclusive Titan Force set is Sentinel Prime! Trading in a plastic runner for a clear orange tree, it is somehow even more of a visual assault than the standard version! This is imagined as Sentinel glowing with "resurrection energy", and also replaces the Autobot emblems of the retail release with the insignia of the pre-war Autobot Security Services as seen in the Megatron: Origin
comic miniseries. Keep reading to see our gallery with over 75 photos of the redecoed Sentinel Prime!
Teased a little while back by Hisashi Yuki, we now have the answer to what TakaraTomy is doing with Victorion for Unite Warriors! The next Unite Warriors "EX" release is Megatronia, a collection of seemingly new character female Decepticons, led by Megaempress, and consisting of Flowspade, Lunaclub, Moonheart, and Trickdiamond. TakaraTomy Mall has added a product page featuring basic stock photos of all the toys, which you can find mirrored below. Megatronia is an exclusive scheduled to be released in December at a price of 15,000 Yen with a preorder period from August 24th to September 26th.
