After the Figure King scans showing the retooling happening to Rook/Wandering Roller to make the figure into the Takara Tomy Transformers Unite Warriors Nosecone (part of the UW08 Computron/Computicon set), we now have actual images via TFYuki of the finished thing, including an over the top, multi-drill mode. Check them out mirrored below!

I guess you could say the comparisons between Rook and Nosecone really drills home just how extensive of a retool Nosecone is!

I'm not proud of this one.

Can't wait to get Computron. That's one heck of a remold too. Two bad they couldn't give his hands the Hound treatment. An awesome figure nonetheless.

Seibertronian and Twincaster Razorclaw0000 dropped by to share with us a tweet from Takara Tomy Mall about their upcoming Skyreign-based set in the Transformers Unite Warriors line - as UW-EX - which will be fully announced at the upcoming Tokyo Toy Show. Pre-orders will open on June 12th, and limited (for now) to the online retailer. Check out the banner image below, showing not much more than the last time we saw a teaser for the set.

Ah, an EX release...limited numbers. Great. Oh well, I probably wouldn't have been able to get it anyway. Computron takes priority.

If pre-orders open on the 12th, does that mean they're likely to actually show what the set looks like on the 12th or before then? Hard to sell pre-orders when all you have is a silhouette...

For This yea but not always. Bruticus was just a grainy prototype when preorders went up but that could have just Been online retailers jumping the gun because they knew they were going to sell him.

It says it will be revealed June 9th (6/9) so for sure we will see it before its preorderable. However, it should be noted that the japan exclusive preorder will be the 12th. If its an exclusive, then maybe it will only be for Japanese locals and thus we have to wait for western preorders which may go up at a later date.

I am in the same boat as Sigma Magnus. The fact that this is an EX release makes it much easier for me to feel less tempted in getting it. Thats a great excuse to ignore it :) It is also fitting since Ratchet was an exclusive in the US as well.

I'm pretty excited to see their decos for the limbs here. I still think the Hasbro versions are the four weakest CW deluxes (though Smokescreen is pretty nice).

I'm still hoping it will be an insane set like Grand Galvatron with new limbs but either or. I still can't find a Skylinx and I don't really want to buy this unless it's got new limbs but if my luck doesn't change with finding one I might have to go this route.

I think that I will have to get the set for 2 reasons: inability to find Sky Lynx and, IF Ratchet is in this set, it may be my only way of getting a painted Ratchet. In addition, if I'm going to pay at least $100 for Ratchet, I might as well get a painted one plus 4 other bots. Who knows, maybe they could do some other repaints Hoist and Red Alert.

I doubt the other 'bots will be changed from Wheeljack, Hound and Trailbreaker mostly because those heads are unique tooling Takara hasn't released yet. And those heads on those bodies are kinda hard to colour into any other pre-existing autobots, unless they went G2 on us...
...
I hope they go G2 on us

I highly doubt they'd go SG.

...sure, it'd be awesome if they did, but it's pretty unlikely.





Also, yay, my 200th post!

What if this is TT Liokaiser?

The full silhouette seemed to feature the Hasbro limb-molds (maybe with the First Aid mold subbing in for one of the limbs? Been a while), no jets or tanks, so this one's probably not Liokaiser.
