The new wave of Takara Transformers United (UN-23 to UN27) has been released in Japan and Asia. Courtesy of Japanese Transformers collector and blogger - Alfes2010, we get to see the detailed galleries of United UN-23 Rodimus Prime.

UN-23 is not only a repaint version of Classics/Henkei Rodimus, the engine portion of the vehicle has been remold. Now this figure can attach with your favourite minicon/target master as well.

Check out some of the images below:

Huh. Looks okay but they went way too dark with the burgundy. Easy pass for me.

Gotta hate that dark burgandy roof, front end, and middle of the spoiler in car mode.

screw the mini-cons. Does the new engine block hold Sidearm or the new 3rd party targetmasters coming out ??? i doubt it...

And I was loking forward for a more G1-accurate Hot Rod, but that dark burgendy killed it.

Oh well, that's 40 bucks I don't have to pay.

Terrible. The vehicle mode looks patched together. All they had to do was make it shiny ... what were they thinking with this?

IMO there are paint flaws in both modes. But know matter my current Roddy is a bit loose to hold the Protecto-armor so he'll do nicely! :VEHI:

Great, a version of this mold that I actually WANT. Like I didn't have enough to spend my money on with trying to get the First Editions that will never be released in my area...

Cool idea with the minicon port but Henkei Hot Rod looks much better. And yes, I realize this is Rodimus colors. Still a miss in my opinion.

Wish it actually came with a min-con...

I really like this one... But already having this guy two times... I still might get it.

(I'm weak, weeeaaaaaak!)

Thats a really ugly repaint of a really nice mold.

Chest - yes
Flame details - yes

Muddy mismatched burgundy - no
White hands and face - no

The nice flame details just don't make up for the other horrors inflicted on this poor toy. :(

I'd love one in the magenta of the Masterpiece, though.

You know, I'd be tempted to pick this up to kitbash with parts from other releases of the mold into proper Targetmaster Rodimus if the blasted Targetmaster wouldn't be so pricey on top of that.

At least it's better than Battle in Space/Challenge at Cybertron Rodimus....

Maybe marginally. But if you have to compare it to BIS Rodimus to make it look good something's VERY wrong.

Yes! Yes! A thousand times yes! I'd love a Hot Rod in the colours of Hot Rod. MP is too expensive for me right now (as if it's going to get any cheaper :lol: ) and since it looks like we're not likely to get a new version of Hot Rod that looks like the cartoon alt-mode, or has Generations style engineering, at least not any time soon, I'd be very happy to pay for a proper magenta Hot Rod.

I know Reprolabels have gifted us with a few Hot Rod / Rodimus sticker sets, but if they could see themselves making the United flame designs work with Henkei Hot Rod I'd be very interested. The two-tone bodywork and split spoiler just aren't working for me.

I really like this Rodimus but was a bit disappointed when he came with no flames along the sides. Did Reprolabels come out with a set to fix that problem? I do know they did a few but I'm talking about decals for "Challenge at Cybertron" Roddy. :VEHI:

Gundam...I just now noticed that he does have a pasty white face...WTF? Do you think they did it because they wanted to capture that same paint app like MP Rodimus but went too far? :VEHI:

Looks good to me. I like that it's remolded despite having no use for that bit. Still getting it. The roof deco is changed on this guy too. Surprised no one mentioned it.
:BOT:

I've been staring at these photos a lot lately. I'm still on the fence.
