Chara-Net has posted some new images of Takara's new upcoming United figures and MP-11 Coronation Starscream. It's a bit of a mixed bag of mock-ups and actual product images. The actual product images also provide a glimpse of the United Wind Charger and Decepticon Wipe Out set in package and the box for MP-11. We've mirrored the images below.

Wait, Axalon is an autobot? That kills the concept.

Well, Axalon was the name of the Maximals ship and a one of the Omega ships from Animated. It only makes sense that this is an Autobot.

Hot Rod looks pretty good, and I'd get Axalon for his name alone. I never got the 10th aniversary Beast Wars Optimus Primal and Megatron, and the Megatron doesn't look half bad in a deep purple.

Too bad all of these are going to be out of my price range.

Looks like I'm keeping my preorders for g2 megs, windcharger and wipeout, axalon, but dropping the arc unicron. Doesn't look any different. Rodimus looks good but I already have to many versions of that mold.

Glad I pre-ordered The Windy set and the G2 Megs, who will become Archforce in my collection :)

I'm definitely on the fence about Axalon tho', hopefully some clearer photos will come out in due course. Windy doesn't look any different from his RTS release. I feel sorry for people who weren't able to get him, with TT figs as expensive as they are these days, you'll still end up paying the current eBay value, but from a retailer.

I only own the RTS Hot Rod a am quite tempted by the new one.......

WOAH!! I've only just noticed those massive bits of wing/body blending hanging off the bottom of MP-11's wings. That looks crap! At least with the original MasterPiece Starscream the kibble looked like it might be useful for flying in robot mode.

I'd like Windcharger, but only Windcharger, and I simply can't justify spending voyager money on a single scout. May have to get Thunderwing as he's looking quite vibrant. Unsure about Warpath. The rest are easy passes.

On closer inspection, U-W'Charger has an Autobot insignia where his RTS counterpart had (quite obviously!) a rub-sign. I can't see any other obvious deco difference between the two than that.

I still find it pretty hilarious that the new starscream is the origional concept mold from when mp screamers was first announced and shown, with the parts he was always supposed to have.

as for the rest, nothing special here to realy write home about imho, cept for windcharger

So the only difference between the Takara Warpath and Hasbro Warpath is Takara makes the missile launchers on his shoulders red and removes the best part about his alt mode, the "K4-90w" and "Z0W-333" decals?

Looks like it. I can't imagine those would make much sense to the Japanese fans, I'm not sure how he was portrayed in thier G1 dub?

Motto: "Collecting little transforming action figures is the right of all sentient Geeks."
Weapon: Indepentently Targetable Particle Beam Cannons
Hot Rod: So another slightly different Hot Rod. Still like the Chrome on the Henkei version better. At least this one has translucent windows unlike Hasbro's version.

Warpath: Meh, not enough of a difference there.

Unicron: Seems the yellow is a little darker ... dirtier if you will. Definitely don't need another Deluxe Unicron as much as I like the mold there's just not enough of a difference there.

Megatron: I'll call you Universe Reverse Convoy.

MP Starscream: Every body complained about the hip kibble, and now that its not there anymore, people complain about it not being there? Seriously there's just no pleasing some people.

Not sure this edition was necessary, but it looks pretty nice. Maybe we'll get official coneheads from the updated mold now.

Beastwars Megs and Primal: Never picked up the 10th anniversary editions, though i do own the Primal repaint for Cybertron and its an awesome mold, so may just get these. Particularly Megatron looks awesome. Though the enema gimmick is still as disturbing as ever.

Guys, it's not Hot Rod/Rodimus, it's Rodimus Convoy/Prime. Look at that color scheme. The chest flames are clearly based on those from the G1 Rodimus Prime toy, and the side flames of the car mode heavily the flames adorning the sides of Rodimus Prime's trailer.

^ I wonder if that's still just a mockup. Seems strange that they would leave out so much paint detail on the shins and hip armor. Still manages to look better than the recent Hasbro one though. However I won't be getting this one since it'll be too expensive and I already have both Hasbro ones.

MP-11 - Wow, actual toy pics already? That was fast. It does look good but I've gone over my reasons for not wanting this in the other thread. At least it's not $200. IF I didn't already have MP-03 I would buy it.

Axalon - Maaaan, he looks col and I wanted a version of this mold, but not as an Autobot. The Botcon Sharkticon still eludes me... pass on this one.

Ark Unicron - No thanks. I can get the Cybertron original for cheaper on eBay.

Windcharger/Wipeout - I don't understand why Takara insists on releasing scouts in 2-packs. Especially since they're the same mold. Whatever, I already have Windcharger so I'm not interested.

The rest, I either have the Hasbro versions or I'm not interested (Beasts). Thanks Takara, money saved!
