Recently we have reported that Takara Tomy has a "small plan" for this year to commemorate Transformers G1:2010.

When we reported the news on Masterpiece MP-4S Convoy Sleep Version, at the same time Takara Tomy has also created a new webpage for Transformers 2010.
In this dedicated webpage, we can see that Takara Tomy still has 3 more products in the bag.

Ray from Robotkingdom, our valued sponsor, has sent us an update that there will be a repaint version of Unicron, with a new remold head.

Robotkingdom has also opened the pre-order page for this Japan Universe Version Unicron, although no images are available at the moment.


Transformers collector and also Energon Pub member s250 has updated his tweeter blog with the following speculation:

"Another Unicron repaint release in September?
Is it part of TakaraTomy 2010 project?
So 1st Sleep Convoy, 2nd OP&Rodimus, 3rd Unicron, 4th MP Rodimus????"

We still do not have any official confirmation on this, so treat this a pinch of salt.
Head over to our thread to discuss and give your opinion on this rumor.

Stay tuned to Seibertron, Ultimate Resource of Transformers!

You're probably by yourself on that one. ;) Unicron though, with a remolded head sounds interesting. I only own the black Energon version so far and wouldn't mind a normal deco'd one. Also, MP Rodimus would be pretty sweet IMO.

Y'know. I never actually bought a Unicron...I guess I should eventually pick one up. If the new head mold is nice, I might get this guy.

MP Rodimus as well!! I'm liking these 2010 products from japan so far. :D

What would be kool, is an MP Hot rod that has addons to actualy make him an MP Rodimus, rather than 2 seperate figures. Kinda like what fansproject has done with the classics figure.

That would be awesome...but then they would have to make 3 different colors to make more money....wait a minute, they'll probably do that anyway...either way that would be awesome.

I'm all for a Masterpiece Rodimus Convoy. For all the Hot Rod and Hot Rod-esque figures we get, there's a fairly limited amount of Rodimus Primes. As for a remolded Unicron figure... I've got Armada Unicron so I'm not too terribly worried, but if it's true and it's awesome, I'm probably sold.

They should just redesign Unicron altogether. That mould does not do him justtice. I will say something that has been said many times before:

THEY SHOULD USE THE BEAST WARS NEO MOULD. See attached pic.

I remember that. I don't think it was ever put into production. I do have the original Armada Unicron and will probably be the only one I ever buy.

I know. They really should put it into production though. It is the only one that does him justice. Either that or harvest from the Primus mould and retool him. I do not think the present Armada Unicron mould is good enough.

I guess it all depends on the re-mold, but damn, with all the FP stuff and all this stuff, my first Botcon (if I can get registered SOMETIME SOON) along with Generations, 2010 is going to be a record TF spending year for me!

Why?

It's horrible, tiny, and has a giant shell on it's back.

The Armada Unicron is large, posable, detailed, and integrates most if not all of Unicron's central themes. His only real flaw is that one side of the planet sphere is flattened to allow him to sit on a table.

As much as I've realized I want a Unicron, that's somewhat out of my price range. I'm on board for an MP Rodimus though! :D

I'm thinking a new Unicron will be less than an MP Rodimus Figure. Armada/Universe Unicron was only $50. My guess is an MP Rodimus is going to be $129 - $150
