I swear, the more I look at the Rescue Bot Wannabes, the more I don't like their combined modes. >:oP

But the Zoo Team still looks kickin', even with Jaws the Derpy Shark and Tweetie the Derpy Phoenix being so... derpy. :lol:

I think it's pretty weak how all three modes of each combiner have the same weapon. You'd think they'd be able to spice things up a little.

I like the shoulder mounted rockets launchers of the beast combiner when the phoenix is the primary. It's actually giving the middle guy a purpose besides adding weight.

Is Tomy/Takara intentionally trying to make this series as ugly as possible? Even combined this is one ugly toy.

I'm looking forward to seeing in package images of the Swordbot Shinobi Team so we can get some official English spellings of their names.

So now we have all six titles:

GoHishou: 空 Sora (sky)
GoSensui: 海 Umi (sea or ocean)

Any leads on the individual names for Abominus?

As someone who only knows the word "konichiwa", nope, not at all. :-(

Didn't one of the magazine scans already show the colors for Ratchet, Smokescreen, Arcee, supreme Predaking and Abominus? So why are they hiding the three of them pictured here? Oh well but I do really like the GO! colorations of the Predacons as well as Ratchet, Starscream and Soundwave as they can all pass for entirely new characters from the Hasbro releases.

Surely you also know sayonara, sumo, karate, samurai and ninja? ;)

As for their names, they are not on this image. Have they been on any others? I could take a stab at it. :???:

I wonder if Bakudora will retain its Hasbro mold counterpart's female gender.

I love the look of Gaidora, but the rest of these Go! Predacons aren't doing anything for me. Budora's looking not too bad, but his colours are thematically quite similar to Takara's version of Ultimate Predaking (which I must own.) I'll reserve final judgement for the in-hand images.
