When I first glimpsed G01 Kenzen Samurai I thought the alt mode was Scourge.

Nice build up, but end result failed completely. So going to allocate the money I put aside for these 3. To another set of figures. Still not sure if I want to get Gaidora, but probably will

Interchangeable Railracer-like combiner. Neat.

...why is that Laserback-dude-person colored like Ripclaw?

And is that a new head mold I see? :shock:

I would need to see better images, preferably in-hand, of the Samurai trio, but it looks like Takara has taken some cues from Genesis of Aquarion. Here's a little look:

DX Sousei Gattai Aquarion review (Japanese) from Ooebi's Hobby Factory.

The Samurai looks a lot more messy though.

I can see Hasbro doing a Prowl, Inferno, and (Treadbolt?) out of those, if they choose to release them in their respective decos. But either they have to lay off the samurai influence so we don't end up with a Megazord knock off or ditch the combining gimmick entirely. Just my two cents.

Much better.

I think Jimbo (dont judge me, I'm giving them nicknames because I'll forget their names in the next two minutes) is my favorite out of the three, followed by Officer Barbrady and Hot Spice.

That head is too badass for Laserback. Please use a better mold, Takara. >:oP

Nice! :D The first combo actually reminds me of this guy:



The other two don't look too shabby, I'm intrigued. :)

Those guys are definitely pretty interesting. I don't think I'll import them, but if they come over here I might be interested in giving them a go. Lazerback repaint looks quite nice too.

I like them. I'll keep my preorders and keep an eye open for proper reviews.

Makes me happy to get more predacons. They are clones of one another after all so repaints actually make sense here.

Wow! :APPLAUSE: Gaidora looks awesome! Such a keeper.

Not sure what to make of the samurai team just yet. They look good (very good in the case of 02 and 03), but it seems obvious they were designed separately from the majority of the GO! figures. Typically Japanese in aesthetics. I'm keeping my pre-orders, but would very much like to see more. Combined modes look a little Energon-like i.e. naff.

So happy we're finally getting to see what these things are meant to be. Cheers Takara.

I guess I'm not too bothered by these being Japan-exclusive. I like the individual bots but the combined modes are a little too Brave/MMPR-ish for my taste.

These look good, but I hate their colors. Hasbro please come to the rescue!
