Golden Week, Japan's week-long holiday is currently underway, but it seems that TakaraTomy's Hisahi Yuki is choosing to observe the time a little differently. Celebrating "Green Week", he's spent the early hours of his Monday tweeting shots of green figures such as the Energon Constructicons, as a lead to what he really wants to show: The first silhouetted teaser for Combiner Wars Devastator, stamped with a big Coming Soon. A Unite Warriors Devastator should be no surprise at all, and until it can be shown in full, all we really have to wonder is, what will be different?
Coming on May 22nd along with Quickslinger, Brake-Neck, the trademark-renamed Wildrider is a redeco and head retool of Dead End. Returning to reclaim his spot from the similarly decoed Offroad, how does the figure hold up? And how does it do for completing Menasor? We have a review in video, as well as text and photos.

Coming on May 22nd along with Brake-Neck, Quickslinger, the trademark-renamed Slingshot is a redeco and head retool of Firefly. As expected, the deco may be a bit on the bland side, but how does the figure hold up overall, and how does it do at completing Superion? We have a review in video, as well as text and photos.

Singapore's Facebook fan group Planet Iacon has posted a new image of Unite Warriors Superion! This version of the figure adjusts color balance and substitutes white for black on Superion's hands and feet to achieve a more G1-inspired look... which is also why Alpha Bravo has been sidelined in favor of Slingshot, of course.

Andrew Griffith, currently known as the main series artist on IDW's The Transformers
has posted an update to his tumblr tonight showing some of his contributions to the design of the upcoming Leader Class Ultra Magnus figure. Specifically, designing the cockpit interior that houses Minimus Ambus when Ultra Magnus is in robot mode. If you wanted a good sense of what's in there, you're all set. Keep reading to see the lineart and Griffith's comments!
