Seibertron.com sponsor TFSource has listed preorders for the next wave of Transformers Kabaya Candy Kits. It looks like this time around they pull again from the Victory portion of the Transformers mythos for Deszaras. Also included in the wave is WFC Optimus Prime and more.

Preorders are also up for the next Kabaya combiner wave which includes Gaia Guardian.

Wow! Have to say some of these are better than the Legion/Legends class figures we're getting, looking at WFC prime. Wow just wow.

A Deszaras toy that I don't have to sell one of my kidneys for?! sign me up! :grin:
Love that they made his wings point to the sides like in the show, I don't think the G1 toy could do that(Can anyone confirm that for me?), though it doesn't look like he has the sword/scimitar from the show, I'll probably look for one when he comes out. :D

Oh my I do want. :grin:

I also hope the new Gaia combiner holds together better than Gaiacross does.

Love me some Kabaya figures! What I really like about wave five (aside from Prime & Deszaras) is that it includes Hotspot, and a seperate wave within a wave of this Gaia Guardian. Looks to me like Blades, First-Aid, Groove, and Streetwise will be able to combine with Hotspot!

That way if your don't care foe "Gaia Guardian" you can have him merged as Defensor!

Never had any interest in these figures, but I wouldn't mind getting a Deszaras. Anybody care to tell me how big they are?

Isn't that Deathsaurus, not "Deszarius"?

In before Sabrblade!

Actually, it's not. "Deszaras" is a nonsensical name in Japanese, having no root meaning whatsoever. As such a logical transliteration into English is impossible. "Deathsaurus" is the most logical sounding attempt even though it's incorrect: the Japanese would have spelled out De-su-za-u-ru-su, or "Deszaurus". Completely different word.
It's likely "Deszaras" is based on a naming scheme for so-called Kaiju, like Godzilla (or "Gojira" for your purists), since that's what he supposedly represents: a monstrous toothed bird with wings.

I wish someone would snap up these molds and rerelease them with paint ops instead of stickers.

What? Image But the Japanese never even got War for Cybertron.

To them, this would just be a shrunk down version of the United Cybertron Mode figure.

Looks like a good chance for me to get a Deszaras. I got Victory Leo, so I might as well. These are almost as cool as reissues and heck of a lot more affordable. :D

But it's such a minor character to them. His only fictional appearance was in a two-page mini-manga. This form of his isn't that iconic in Japan to be up with the likes of all the others who have come before him in these sets.

I've been wanting to try some Kabaya kits after seeing a few builds of them on YouTube. I finally bit the bullet and pre-ordered the box containing Deszaras (and duplicates of course) from BBTS. That WFC Prime looks kinda cool too.

This should be fun :).

You should get Star Saber & Victory Leo! And Ginrai and Godbomber! They're my favorites. 8)

Well, they did make Wipe-Out, an obscure American character, who's super obscure for Americans.

But the thing WFC Prime has, is well, he's Optimus Prime, one of Japan's fave Transformers.

Also these look awesome.

If I remember correctly the wings do have a range of motion allowing them to be moved to the side. I'll try and take a picture tonight if I remember.
