Seibertronian board moderator Cobotron has received the latest offering in the Takara Tomy Transformers Unite Warriors line, the mishmash of continuities and concepts UW06 Grand Galvatron! Uniting a Wandering Roller, an Armada Thrust, a Ghost Starscream, a Prime Breakdown under the vision of Cyclonus, Grand Galvatron sports new head sculpts and colour schemes. Check out a brief pictorial review below.

Cobotron wrote:EVERYONE! This set is AMAZING! So much fun and ridiculousness. The color layouts, and the application of the paint is fantastic. Starscream has translucent paint on his translucent parts. I don't know that I have ever seen that before.
The stand outs for me are Cyclonus, Roller, and Breakdown. But all of the figures are creepy and cool in their own way. The new head sculpts are great.

Way to pull some weirdness out of your imaginations Takara. This set is going to fuel mine for a good long while.

Hey! Thanks for newsing it up guys!
I stayed up way to late playing with these guys. :lol: I-)

@ Wolfman Jake and Seibertron, Cyclonus is a really great shade of blue, and to me, doesn't look all that much like the color on the cartoon model. He does have some lovely metallic lavender high lights though. Not sure what they were going for with the torso mode, but I know I like it.

Also Thrust's colors are spot on with the Armada toy.

I think they were going for the G1 Galvatron toy, though it really needed the four squares on his abdomen to be red.

Your comment about Thrust reminds me that I forgot to grab Armada Thrust from the storage unit for comparison pics. Urgh. Back I go!

The original release, right? Not the lavender re-release. the colors remind me of Energon Megatron. Who always looked like Galvatron to me anyway.

Because in the original Japanese version, Armada (or Micron Legend) Megatron never changed his name. He was always Megatron, just a powered up Megatron. In Energon, he came back from the get go as Galvatron, and again, never changed his name when he powered up. That's why Energon Megatron homages Galvatron so.

I've been trying to tell myself I don't need this set, but so far I'm losing that argument... The in hand pics really sell it. My favorite is easily Thrust, and as I've said before I was never an Armada guy. Don't know anything about that era since that period was my "too cool for cartoons and toys" phase haha. The colors and the head sculpt are just that good.

Everyone's talking about how they want the other seekers made out of Ghost Starscream, but it'd also totally be equally cool if we got the G1 Coneheads out of Thrust. They look so great.

About the G1 Galvatron toy colors for the combiner torso, this combiner was originally supposed to be made into Galvatron II, but it was later decided to make it be Cartoon Galvatron proper after the colors had already been finalized.

But, IMHO, the toy colors do work rather well for a Galvatron that's come back from the dead as his lightly-colored deco happens to be reminiscent of that of Car Robots Devil Gigatron (RiD 2001 Galvatron), whose lightly-colored deco was meant to be associated with death.

I believe this phase is scientifically known as puberty. :lol:

I am down for any and all of that. One thing that has me a bit bamboozled, but not a BIG deal, is it seems like the Air Raid tooling would have made for a better "classic" Seeker than Skydive. Aside from the obvious alt mode, something about the torso shape, and it has ports on the arms for weapons.
But, yeah, bring more CW Seekers. I'm game!

@ Will - Um yeah, OK, that would be it! Thanks! :lol:

Who is on Sky Reign's left leg? It's the Wheeljack version of the Breakdown mold, but not colored like any released or planned character that I'm aware of.

I think that this right here is the winner of the unite warriors line to date. I'm sorry guys who got the other guys but this guy just sings awesomeness and beauty. Awesome paint, awesome head, awesome randomness. I found the winner to date right here! :MAXIMAL:

I might have to pull the trigger on this one, so much hype! :CON:
It's just too wonky and fun to pass up. Plus I need to have that Thrust.

For those of you who have it in hand, how are the joints and general QC stuff? Any problems or looseness?

I haven't spent enough time yet really digging in, but right off the bat, Starscream's elbows are pretty loosy goosy. Like almost can't hold up his gun. The two halves of the truck bed that form the fore arm for Breakdown's arm mode have a little trouble staying pegged together, but my Off Road is like that too.
Nothing glaring though. The other 3 figures seem right as rain. I'll pay a little more attention when I play with him tonight. ;)^

Hmm, yeah sounds about right. I have similar issues with some of their mold mates. Was hoping to hear they were perfect, but I can't blame the messenger. Appreciate it!
