The two black Unicrons were extremely similar. There was different shade for the minicon, but in all likelihood it might have been due to the manufacturing process rather than the design.

I wonder if we'll ever get an official English rendering of this figure's name in Latin script so that we don't have to use either the official "Shūgō-tai" term or the not-quite-correct "Combine" term.

Looking forward to Encore Unicron (Micron Combine Type Color)? Well thanks to Takara Tomy we have even more pictures!

Following our report here, Takara Tomy have updated their website with even more photos of this upcoming Encore release. This version of Unicron uses the Armada Unicron mold but uses green translucent plastic and new deco to represent the combined power of the minicons (Microns in Japan, hence the name of this release) when they to fend off Unicron in the final episodes of Armada. These photos mainly take the form of 360 degree turn around pictures, allowing us to see all angles of this toy in both robot and planet mold. There is also a few new pictures of his accompanying Minicon.

Well, it sure is green. It will look at it's best with LED lighting from above and bottom to make it glow.

I hadn't realized until now that the feet and planet rings are still gray instead of green. Not sure how I feel about that.

Silver, not gray, which I don't mind since it has a bit of a reflectiveness to it. Also digging the gradient used on the larger horns. Hopefully some of these are still available next year at a decent price.

Even if it's plainly an object for completists, I'm quite fond of it. I like it better than the original "Hikari no Unicron".

Is is just me or is the planet mode transformed wrong in these pictures? I'm fairly certain that the head shouldn't be visible.

Yeah, it's been pointed out. The feet are supposed to be pushed in more to cover the gap (the ring isn't attached between the feet properly to compensate).

The ring isn't attached to the planet shell either. #-o

Well would you look at that. And yet they are attached in bot mode so either he started with the planet mode or he yanked them out to transform him.
