We have an update on the next Takara Tomy Unite Warriors set, the one repainting Bruticus and the Combaticons into Ruination - or as they will be known in the set: Baldigus! Takara Tomy Mall has uploaded new images for the whole team, including single robot and vehicle modes for Dangar/Armorhide, Greejeeper/Rollbar, Shuttler/Movor, Heptar/Rotor, and Dolrailer/Mega Octane, plus their combined form. This set comes with the hands and feet found in the Combiner Wars Computron set and has weapons from both the Unite Warriors Constructicons and Technobots. This is a Takaratomymall exclusive that retails for $160 in Japan and will be around the same Megatronia price point everywhere else online. Check them all out below, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

Woah there, is that CW Computron's Hands and Feet? TakaraTomy is making good use of them. And with the Combaticon's team as well. I was thinking of getting UW Bruticus but this guy beats it to oblivion. =P~

Yep, Computron's hands and feet, as well as extra guns from Devastator and Computicon. And they reversed Blast Off's torso direction for Shuttler so his belly is the shuttle underside, like on the original Blast off and Shuttler/Movor toys and the show. Lots of attention to detail here.

Oh yeah, they did... I was wondering why Movor was looking a billion times better than Blast Off, better colours aside.

It just occurred to me the kind of firepower Dolrailer could be packing. Since his back canons are meant to be hand guns themselves you could really give him two double length guns, one for each hand. Likewise Baldigus could have a triple length gun by connecting his two new guns to one of his back guns. Crazy. Now I wish Onslaught came with extra guns, but then again, Baldigus doesn't have a Shockwave.

Can't wait to stick this guy up against Omega Prime.

Oh my. Oh my that does look good.


May have to see if I can get my Blast off transformed that way.

I honestly didn't think Takara would use the CW Computron hands and feet...and, I don't think they look very good in the first picture (sky configuration?). They look much better in the second (land configuration? :???: ), so if I'm able to get this guy, I'll keep him like that.

I don't know a lot about "Ruination" but I like the way this set looks. Plus I wouldn't have to shell out another 30 bucks for the PE arms and feet.

So if this set isn't well North of $134.00 (UW Computron's price) on BBTS like that Megatronia set, then I may invest.

It will be the same price as megatromia. The listing already confirms thst he will be 160$ in Japan.

Yeah, I was wondering why more people hadn't done that as of yet. Although I don't own one personally, I did get the chance to inspect one before I sold it. ( I prefer the more 'realistic' Hasbro Blast Off, especially since his strange head isn't visible in arm mode)

Of all the Unite Warriors sets released, this might get me to bite. Now if Takara would dig even deeper and give us a Battle Gaia repaint...

So... why exactly does the big guy have an upside-down G2 Autobot logo? (Not as in cartoon/toy accuracy, As in, why in the first place?)

Because the bad guys considered themselves anti autobots, an offshoot of the cybertronians and thus reversed the symbol to show their rebellion.

So it's all the bruticus molds with the Hasbro computron hands and feet robbed and thrown in. Along with guns from UW Computicon, and UW Devastar.

I now feel entirely robbed that these guns weren't included with the Vanilla UW bruticus. I'm stuck trying to track down one of the god damn Perfect Effect bruticus hands a feet sets. :BOOM:

Why couldn't the hands and feet have been included with Computron as well?

Did Hasbro throw their hand in and say 'You've gotta hold them back so our set actually has a chance to sell!' or something?

:BANG_HEAD:

On a related topic, if anyone can point me in the direction of the Perfect Effect hands and feet in Black for Defensor and Silver for Bruticus, I would greatly appreciate it. I've got the White, Purple and Red sets for Superion, Menasor and Computron and they tower over the other 2 by a noticeable margin.

It makes my shelves look really asymmetrical, I know it's a nitpick, but this is the kind of thing that really grinds my gears. [-(

I still didn't get bruticus to complete the 4 CW teams i wanted and this has piqued my interest - looks pretty good (maybe onslaught is a bit weird..) but yeah the fact he has the new feet and hands. Will see.

Okay....Thanks.

I still haven't bought Titan Class Fort Maxx yet and wouldn't pay that price for him. So count me out.

Now if they make a Liokaiser with 6 Con's at that price instead of the cheap crap Hasbro's doing then I'd be interested.

That or play the waiting game. Even UW Devastator is only 179.99 now (I think I only paid 189.99 a couple months ago). So there's that.

Indeed, I added the link to your post, if that is all right, for those who want to preorder...

Every time I see the name Baldigus, I keep thinking of the Ballchinian from Men In Black 2. I don't know why...
