Takara head designer Yuki is very proud of the upcoming Unite Warriors Computron. He just got a finished sample from the factory and posted it on Twitter. It may not have been obvious before, but with this final product image we can see that all the Technobots have different shades of colour to distinguish the limbs. Afterburner, for instance, has a bit more orange in him, which differs in tone from the chest and Lightspeed.

We also have even more images from the Tokyo Toy Show, courtesy of the Autobase Aichi Facebook page. Enjoy!

Is it just me...or does it look almost like Computron is smiling? It is just an odd observation. Even if it were true, I would not let such a little thing ruin my opinion of such a well engineered toy. But its just odd...I'd never thought I'd see a combiner smile, but least of all, Computron.

Yes he is smiling. But thats the problem with ransformers with Mouths. You dont want them to look too mad or grim so sometimes they simply end up with a slight smile.

He looked like that on the show sometimes too:

I don't think he's smiling, I think that's just his lower lip...

I still can't get past that red Afterburner. Along with Lightspeed, it makes me glad I'm getting the Hasbro version.



@WJ88 I hate to break it to you, but that's Abominus.

1. I've been accustomed to TF's with stoic faces, so grim or scowling ones wouldn't really make me take notice and

2. that's Abominus, not Computron ...just sayin ;)

:lol: Yes it is indeed, thanks fo the catch. One thing I am wondering is that if the colour on Afterburner is important (which it is), then how are you ok with the green on the Hasbro version? Is it not as big an issue?

Yeah, I'm gonna wind up getting both versions...Hasbro for the more orange Afterburner, the dedicated hands and feet, and the Cosmos repaint; Takara for the better Strafe, Nosecone and Lightspeed.

I'm delighted by these finalized samples of Unite Warriors Afterburner. The earlier solicitations and stock photos had no hint of orange in Afterburner's pallet, but now, he looks like a pretty perfect match/compromise for his G1 cartoon appearance(s). Afterburner looks a lot more red in robot mode, while he looks more orange-red in vehicle mode (sometimes) and in limb mode on Computron. Yes, the G1 toy is more of a solid orange, a la Strafe's guns, but this is Takara we're talking about, so adherence to cartoon accuracy shouldn't surprise anyone by now.

And yeah, the green and black on Hasbro's version of Afterburner do kind of disappoint me. It's one step forward with the orange, but two steps back with the two new colors. It makes Afterburner look like he's celebrating Halloween or something. :P

I feel like Afterburner is cursed to get a never-quite-right release. Even third-party versions of him end up missing the mark. Is it that hard to make a closed-canopy orange, white and silver motorbike with an extended front swingarm?

And the better Scattershot with the better Computron head and chest, right?

I guess that's a plus, but I'm a lot less bothered by that than by the major differences in the individual bots.

If I looked that awesome, I'd smile a lot too 8-)

One after my own heart :x

I'm getting both too, and I almost can't get past UW's awesomeness, but I still don't know what I'm doing with THE combiner shelf. I've said I'm tired of the mold reuse and Quantron would remain to represent Compy, but damn... I dunno. Quants might be goin on Kijiji sometime soon. :-?

The Takara version of Computron looks amazing :) I'm really glad I preordered him. Can't wait to have him on my G1 season 3 shelf :)

Can anyone here tell me as estimate of shipping for UW Superion from TFSource to Australia? Also, do they ship internationally. I already emailed them and they could not give me a straight answer.
Even just an esstimate, I mean $20, $50? What kind of ballpark are we talking about here.

I don't know what you think about import sites but AmiAmi still has him available for preorder cheaper than buying from an American site like TFsource. The shipping would also probably be cheaper. That's where I'm putting my preorder and they are a good site so there's not much to worry about. And yes I'm pretty sure TFsource ships internationally but you can't qualify for free shipping. $20 to $50 sounds about right for something of that size. Hope that helps. :D


I have not looked on that site in a long time. Like before the CW line of toys existed long.
I'll take a look thanks.

EDIT: Orders are "closed" does that mean he it out of stock? This is like HLJ.com all over again.

Oops yeah I had Computron on the brain sorry. Still AmiAmi and the other usual sites are still better than American sites especially if you live outside the US.

Yes it does mean out of stock. I think the person responding before was referring to Computron sicne that is what we were all talking about.

Your best bet is to check this site out once in a while since they get older stuff that they sell at fair market price for non exclusives: http://jungle-scs.co.jp/sale_en/?page_i ... e+warriors. Its not avantageous to americans since the shipping is expensive and they are better off getting them locally. But for international buyers, this is like other japanese sites. Check it over once a week, Superion used to appear there pretty often. TFSource will cost you over 74$ USD to ship to australia.

Also, check nippon yassan (another japanese site) if they still have superion.


Thanks, I'll boomark those sites. I check both and nippon yasan had the best price on Superion $140 AU, but with postage it bumps up to around $200 AU, so as much or more than what I can buy it for on ebay. DOH!

I saw a UT Superion in stock at a toys r us local to me and they want $300 AU for it! Get outta town TRU, no way.
Thanks anyhow.

Totally agree... This is one that's not to be missed.
Like Menasor and Bruticus, I almost wish I was getting both versions of Comp.
But there is nothing in the Hasbro version that makes it worth it imo.

Question-- Are the details on Comp's chest plate going to be white-ish, or red-ish as they are in those convention photos??
I'm hoping for the white.
