That's surprising, G19 was for Ratchet and not Smokescreen. That solves that mystery.

If BBTS can't/won't sell the Predacons separately, I may just resort to these.

I'm very interested to see how these all will look.

Knowing Takara, I foresee a G1-inspired deco for Abominus.

Or maybe not. Who knows.

So, let's see what all we've gotten listed this far.

G01 Kenzan
G02 Jinbu
G03 Gan'ou
G04 Gaidōra
G05 Gekisoumaru
G06 Hunter Smokescreen
G07 Bakudōra
G08 Budōra
G09 Jagi Gattai Gorādora Set
G10 Hishoumaru
G11 Hunter Optimus Prime
G12 Dragotron
G13 Hunter Shockwave
G14 Hunter Bumblebee
G15 Hunter Bulkhead
G16 Hunter Wheeljack
G17 Hunter Starscream
G18 Hunter Soundwave
G19 Hunter Ratchet
G20 Sensuimaru
G21 Judōra


Based on this list, G04, G07, G08, G09, and G21 are all probably Predacon molds, with G01, G02, G03, G05, G10, and G20 likely being new molds.

Though, didn't previous listings label G01, G02, and G03 with the word "Samurai" in their names?

If I remember correctly, they were listed as "Ninja".

Nope, Samurai. Don't you guys dare bring up a "Ninja vs. Samurai" discussion, you hear?

So, why do G02 and G03 lack the "Samurai" suffixes here?

Error, maybe? In the Brave series at the very least members of combiner teams share parts of names, this could be the same here.

btw looking into BBTS listings shows that the ninja here is Gekisomaru.

I'm fairly sure you don't, and it was, in fact, Samurai. In fact, I'm certain of it, but don't feel like digging up a link to prove it. But there was a conversation where I tried to explain that the two were different things to someone who turned out not to care, and I remember very distinctly the reunion of face and palm.

So if you start it again, it's on you.

I'm getting very impatient for product images of all these figures. Come on already, Takara.

Also, why is G01 left out of the 6/22 listings? Is it coming ahead of time before the others? Or is it supposed to be included?

"Ninja" came to mind because I remembered this article before I remembered the later article. And I wasn't even going to argue; I already knew the differences between the two.

I don't troll often, but when I do it's apparently memorable.

Anyways I'm interested to see what all these figures will look like. I'm wondering if the off-screen Predacons will receive a different colourscheme that'll be marketted to the Japanese consumers. I had heard that Ripclaw (OG07 Bakudōra I think) would receive a different head at least.
