Battle Gaia was a redeco of G1 Bruticus released by Takara in 1992 during the Operation Combination line of the Japanese G1 era. He, like his Autobot counterpart Guard City (a redeco of G1 Defensor) is desirable for how obscure and rare he is, having never been reissued nor having appeared in much fiction beyond the original Operation Combination fiction and some minor fanwanky Japanese fiction of recent years. And because his deco looks cool.

Battle Gaia & Guard City were the first ever "repaints" if you will of Bruticus and Defensor respectively for the Japanese Manga Operation Combination @ 1992. I think its only one person that's asking, and doubtful these two versions will ever be remade. however I'm thinking that (at least with Battle Gaia), being the first Combiner repainted may have had some small part in making Bruticus the most often reproduced combiner to date.

Huh. Cool. I knew about Guard City (Red Hotspot, right?) but never knew about the Bruticus repaint either.

EI'll be getting Baldigus...

I must say though, I know the baby puke tan is accurate to the Takara version of the character, and I wouldnt expect Takara to do anything less. But blech. I do not like it. Nope.

Still, looking forward to my TFSS Scourge having some actually accurate Commandos, and not the Energon guys.

Why do you keep calling him that? ガイアー means "Gaia" (Gaiā), not "Gear" (ギヤ Giya or ギア Gia).


That's just the OT JP way of calling him "GeAR".

My Unite Warriors Lynxmaster came in the post today, and I've been having a lot of fun with it. The only problem I've had so far is the joints on some of the individual figures are a bit tight, particularly on Trailbreaker and Ratchet, to the point where every time I transform them I get worried about applying too much force and breaking something off. Wheeljack's combiner port also makes a worrying CLANG that's louder and feels more strained than the ports on any other Combiner Wars Deluxe I own. Despite this, I'm pleased with my purchase and I do like Lynxmaster more than Superion or Ultra Prime.

Could you take some pics of the toys and their box if possible to show us? Especially Ratchet since that toy is totally new.

Woohoo! Ruination! He looks awesome- I think I'd probably pick this up over Bruticus to be honest, provided there's no major QC issues.

That said, I'd still want to replace those awful hands and feet. Yes they make better feet than the HFGs...but that's not saying much. They still have no forward/backward ankle movement, and the HFGs actually made better hands than the dedicated fists, which have ZERO articulation. At least the HFGs had a finger flap and a moveable thumb.

Regardless, hopefully I'll be able to get him.

(Combiner Wars Bruticus is the only Combiner I have on hand for a comparison right now)

While my version didn't come with a comic, there is this little drawing on the back of the instructions. You've got the Lynxmaster Autobots putting on a play; Sky Lynx is a dragon, Trailbreaker is a knight, Ratchet is a princess (Oh Japan, never ever change), and I think Hound and Wheeljack are doing light and stage effects with their HFG's. I don't know who the three people below Wheeljack singing opera are, if they're characters from Japanese or Sunbow G1 or if they're just entirely new. Optimus, Marissa Faireborne, Ironhide, Hot Spot and someone else (I can't tell who it is) are in the audience.

Gotta say, I'm impressed. I like the original Robots in Disguise show and love any variation of the Combaticons and the Commandos. Unfortunately, I think I would suffer from buyer's remorse since I already have Hasbro Bruticus (I'm very proud that I got all of them individually) and Baldigus is basically a recolor with some new weapons and different hands... Ah well, there goes however much he's worth outta my wallet. And since they made Baldigus.... Could Takara possibly make Scourge out of TR Laser Prime?

Smokescreen was cool and all, but I'm so jelly they got Ratchet instead.

"OT"? I don't think the "Gear" name was even considered at the time.

As for why Baldigus over Battle Gaia, the latter hasn't been created yet at the fiction takes place, between Masterforce and Victory in 2021. Baldigus has, in 2000 in the Car Robots timeframe. Remember, Car Robots is considered G1, while the Robots in Disguise dub is its own universe. That's also why no US RiD names are used.

Looks great...still not sure what the reasoning was with the almost 45 degree angle shot. would have looked just as nice standing straight, and in form with all the other UW boxart
