I really like this guy and whatever he is yelling in Japanese sounds awesome. I am pretty sure I will be getting him, but will probably hold out for the gift set later this year. I can't wait to see more pics of the Ninja team now.

Odd, it has done the opposite with me :x I could understand some of the Japanese, but I wonder if changing his position changes the sounds as well. In short, does Kenzan have the sounds for all three Sanjo Gattai?

that's a bit of a Super Sentai type idea, and going by how this thing appears to have some articulation, I don't think it's emulating those things. ;)

edit:I'm liking the light and sounds action. Zam Zam Suzie!

I've been getting Sentai Robo vibes from this lot since pics first started to surface, these videos have done nothing to dispell that. Not sure if that's a good thing or not, though.

Gah, electronics. Meh.

Still, if it weren't for the flashing lights, the horrible sound quality and the laser noises I'd quite like it. The actual Japanese voice is awesome.

Are these triple combiner sets cross-compatible? Does anyone know???

Because I'd rather just take my favorite bots from each set and combine those instead of paying for bots I'd rather not use or have.

Undetermined.

But as far as we can tell unlikely.

It's a pretty impressive light-show, especially in combined mode. The voice bugs me. The character doesn't look like it should have that deep a voice, but it's probably a Japanese cultural thing I don't get. I like the samurai-themed Autobot logo. That's a nice little touch.

None of this is making me want to cough up for these though. Can't get past the aesthetics.

It's a Leader thing. Leader characters in anime tend to have somewhat deep, powerful, serious sounding voices. And since Kenzan is the Team Leader, it'd make sense for him to sound that way.

Based on the video's we've seen, Jimbu sounds like he could be the youngest member of the Swordbot Samurai Team.

Then again, the last video we saw from the Tokyo Toy Show made Gekisomaru (at least, I think it was his voice) sound pretty young and easygoing, so he might be an exception to this.

Though, I could see Kenzan as the protagonist Autobot, so he might be seen as the main leader.

Japanese toy blogger Alfes 2010 has gotten his hands on the first three figures in Takara Tomy's Transformers Go! line, the Swordbot Samurai team of G01 Kenzan, G02 Jinbu, and G03 Ganoh. As usual he's provided extensive galleries of each figure including their combined forms GoKenzan, GoJinbu, and GoGanoh.

Each figure comes with three collectors card depicting their respective vehicle, robot, and combined modes, and a separate combiner head and shoulders that can transform into a weapon. Kenzan features lights and sounds that work in all three combined modes.

We've mirrored some of the images below, but the full galleries can be found at the following links:

If I ever get these they'll be displayed with the fire truck on top. Not only is that the best looking one overall despite the overly thin legs, it looks like it can use the police cars combiner arms/robot legs as a secondary set of arms. It also looks as though you can use the jets regular robot arms as a third set on top of that. Six armed super combiner. :michaelbay:

So the three configurations are glowing boobs, glowing tummy, or glowing crotch.

That's the Japanese for you. :P

The more I see of them, the less I like them... I just can't help feeling that these guys are a step backwards from RiD's Team Bullet Train.

I have now lost interest. The gestalts seem to have non turning heads, which is normally a deal breaker for me. Apart from that they just look a mess. They've been too ambitious with this and my opinion is that they've failed.

Now that I think about it, I think Kenzan does have the electronics for all three combos. The combiner head pieces (which are proper named kabuto or "helmets") have different lengths, but they all end where Kenzan is in the configuration. In short, it seems different sounds are triggered by a certain kabuto. I like the helmets actually, another Brave throwback, to the "Met On" gimmick of Fighbird and Guardion.

With C.O.N.S. coming up, maybe they'll be available for sale... crap. :(

I like 'em. The price is steep, though.
