Takara Tomy have provided a new image of their upcoming Transformers Go! campaign microns for the Autobot Samurai team. The figures are translucent redecos of Arms Microns from the previous line: Zan (blue L.P.) for Kenzan, Jin (yellow S.2) for Jinbu, and Gan (red Sou) for Ganou. These will be given away with the purchase of their respective Transformers Go! figures at select Japanese retailers. The trio is pictured below in their combined weapon from.

That combined mode still looks ugly as sin.

The microns look good though, hope they're not too expensive.

SWEET!

What is the name of this combined sword weapon?

Also, this is a slightly different configuration from the original release of these molds' Super Combo Weapon, the Leonid Tonfa.

Sou and S.2 have just switched places, and the result looks more like a sword now. The name's a mouthfull though:

SanjouHaouKen

Thankfully I actually know those Kanji, and... you're not gonna like the translation. Accurately, it's "Sword of the Lord of the Third Power". Have fun trying to make it less clunky :lol:

Couldn't the 覇王 ("Haō") also be translated as something like "Supreme King, "High King", "Overlord", etc.?

I.E. - "Cubed Overlord Sword"?

One could do that, however if I know my cultural history well enough, the 覇王 points to the Samurai's overall superior, aka his "Lord", given the Samurai theme of the first three guys. We should ask someone who's a Samurai specialist, Hydra maybe?

btw think we'll see another set for the Shinobi? Maybe one of the animal ones?

Personally, I would hold the sword the other way around to that the blade is facing outward. :roll:


I know the top micron is a repaint of Moon who came with Leo Prime, but just so I'm clear who are the other 2?

Edit: Nevermind, just realized they're Smokescreen and Swerves partners.

You can call the Smokescreen one "Devcon", as he's modeled after him. I don't know about the third tho.

Personally I don't care for this but one has to admit as a combiner its a hell of a lot better than that POS FOC Bruticus HasTak dumped on us. :P :VEHI:

Devastator? You mean Bruticus?

I kinda like Bruticus, actually. Granted it's got its flaws, but considering how they even took the time to enable Scramble City-style combining, it's decent.

I don't think the combined mode would be too bad if you could leave out the middle bot. It just seems to throw off the proportions.

Clear microns don't interest me though.

I'm getting a Rail Racer vibe from this combiner.

This is a good thing.

For those curious, the combiner's name is Go-Kenzan. ;)

They do interest me! :x I wonder if they'll come as a kit, or already assembled?
