Wake me when Computicon is re-released... and maybe Menasor, Convoy Grand Prime and Grand Galvatron. Megatronia would be nice too. :)
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Yeah, those were the last two released and have been in stock since their release. In fact Lynx Master has only recently been OOS. I found those prices to be a bit much, so I got Megatronia last November at TF Source for @ $130 (Black Friday Sale), and found a gently used Baldigus on eBay for around $120 (with a promo coupon).

You generally will find the prices on eBay about the same, or higher than what BBTS is asking for UW, but if you are diligent, you will find occasional deals. I'm just glad my UW collection is now complete.
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Same here. I just want another Stunticon/Menasor Unite Warriors set to give my Grand Scourge a proper super mode.

Reissues of Takara Tomy Transformers Unite Warriors Superion and Devastator Listed Online

Postby Va'al » Thu Aug 02, 2018 2:29 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Fellow Seibertronian Emerje has pointed us towards online retailer AmiAmi, which appears to have listed two new pre-orders for older Takara Tomy Transformers Unite Warriors figure sets, suggesting a possible reissue of the two.

The sets listed online are UW-01 Superion, currently for 11430 Yen (102 USD), and UW-04 Devastar (Devastator), currently for 20000 Yen (180 USD). We have no indication as to whether any of the other sets are also being released again, or whether this is an actual Takara Tomy reissue, but we will update the story as soon as we do.

UPDATE: Site sponsors BBTS and TFSource also have their own listings for these figures, meaning we can indeed consider the sets as reissues, and due in February 2019

I sold my UW Devastator a while back after I bought Toyworld's. But I LOVE this Long Haul. I love how he is so much bigger and beefier than the others. I might have to pick this set up again.

Will this force the Hasbro set prices down on the secondary market? I would be perfectly happy with the original or SDCC variants, but I'm not going to drop $300, so this is better.

I'm still mad I skipped him at TRU. At the time I wasn't buying, and $150 seemed ridiculous, but I went for Titans Return in a big way.

Now I've been mentally calculating the cost for the class of '85 from Combiner Wars through War for Cybertron, and Devastator is a huge chunk of that.

At this point it's starting to feel like Takara is looking at my purchases and then saying
"ねえ、その男はちょうどたくさんのお金のためにこのセットを買った。もう一度リリースしよう". Cause I just paid like $325 for the Unite Warriors Devastator a few months ago and I the day I bought an SDCC Primal for a decent price they announce that they're releasing it for $20 more than Hasbro :HEADHURTS: That'll teach me to be impatient. :lol: Now if only they could re-release Transformers United Beast Megatron :PRAY:

You'll still need Computron since this is Superion.

Ouch. But I understand. Patience can be hard sometimes, but if you are diligent, deals are out there. I paid under $200 for my UW Dev a little over a year ago (it was gently used but was pretty much MIB).

There are Club and Convention exclusives on my want list below I'll probably never get, but I put them up there all the same. No way I'm ever paying $1,000 or more for a Flash Sentry... but $200, and you've got my attention

Preordered Superion since I didn't have the UW version yet. Now I just need Convoy Grand Prime and I'll be done with the standard UW line. I hope they reissue Grand Scourge too since I missed him as well.

It sure would be nice of them to do Predacus and Terrorsaur too considering they're also releasing all these current exclusives lately but that's beyond wishful thinking.

I’d go for Devastator if he wasn’t coming out the same month as Beast Wars Megatron. I can’t spend $600 at once.

Combiners matter to me more than anything.

Supply and Demand. And, who's gonna get the Hb/SDCC versions when you get the Perfect Takara Dev version? The latter would be a bargain!(san shipping of course.

Megatronia and Baldigus are still available at BBTS.

Also I know it is a bit OT, but I would still love is some 3P company would develop UW styled window boxes for PotP combiners (well for Volcanicus and Abominus at least, since those are the only finished ones)

I've thought about looking into doing it myself, but I fear I'd have to dissect one of my own UW boxes to figure it out, and even then, I'm not very artistic. I've seen some mock boxes as art displays at Botcon, so I know it can be done, just not sure how...Also I know the thing about 3P figures is that they cannot have any symbols or stickers that ID them as official TF product. I realize such boxes could not use official artwork, but maybe they could design it in such a way with a window insert of sorts, so the buyer could insert their own artwork...sorry just thinking.
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

I thought the original UW already had the fix. I'm guessing I was wrong?

Also, I wonder if this version of Devastator will swap out that one sticker for a tampo.

Which sticker? I don't remember UW Devastator having any stickers, but it's been quite a while since I got him and I put Reprolabels on him in the meantime, so that may have confused me somewhat...
