Toys'R'Us Japan has been updated with a handful of listings for their next wave of Darkside Moon toys. Among these listings are Shockwave, Skyhammer, and Zsolt (Jolt). However there's one listing that will be part of Takara's toy line and not in Hasbro's toy line for awhile or not at all. Many months back, the instructions of Tomahawk revealed an alternate head. This looks to be used by Vortex, a repaint of Tomahawk, and a heavy homage to the Generation One Combaticon. Check out the images below!

I just realised, this mold would make for a pretty good Rotorstorm.

You know who this is going to be in my collection?

Spinister.

Yeah, you heard me.

However, the back-based rotor (which is strangely photoshopped out of the image above, except partially behind the left leg) is Vortex-styling…

There's a good chance I'm going full Takara on any DotM toys, after some disappointing United choices.

So cool, I want it! I really hope Hasbro puts this out here. 2/5 Bayverse Combaticons ain't bad. :lol: I might sell off Tomahawk if I get this one...

If you mis-transform the legs by keeping the feet up and putting the landing gear out as feet, it looks a lot better, IMHO.

Yet another potentially brilliant figure ruined by movie-aesthetic spindly-limbs-syndrome.

Actually you can still just barely see it behind his left leg and his gun, not that it matters. =P

When I look at this toy, my brain gets a weird animated/movie feel.
I may just have to get this guy. Combaticons always = win.

I never got a chance to pick up Tomahawk, so I hope I might be able to find this one.
