These new figures are on display at the Tokyo Toy Show, shown off in all their gold painted excellence, and are also listed on Takara's official page and TakaraTomy Mall. According to the listings, these figures are set to come out over the course of 4 months, with Optimus coming in August at Wonderfest for 15,000 yen, Unite Warriors Starscream in October through TakaraTomy Mall for 3,800 yen, and Perceptor, Beachcomber, and Seaspray in November also through TakaraTomy Mall for 8,000 yen.

Not mentioned or shown here, but there is also a Golden Lagoon MP-36 that has been previously revealed as well.

I wasn't on board, but that Perceptor actually looks cool as hell.

Also. Starscream has a POTP hand?!!?!

It’s the takara Unite Warriors Starscream that was part of the Grand Galvatron set

These look pretty good. I'm only interested in the Starscream and three figure set so if the price is right, I'm down.

I'm pretty sure the Gold MP-36 was confirmed to be a KO :-?

Looks like people have another Starscream to add to their 'Screamer combiner team.

Way to mess with the OCD people out there Hasbro. Now they'll go crazy not having a full gold CW combiner to go with that Starscream. :lol: :APPLAUSE:

Good question. Probably not. The gold plastic composition was changed several years ago, so GPS is not supposed to be a thing anymore.

But who knows. Maybe when Transformers turns 50, these will be the Electro and Randy of this generation.

But the Hand Armor is from PotP Dreadwing/Blackwing.

Short answer: no.
Long answer: no, as it looks be flat-colored, no metallic flake whatsoever. It's the reaction with the flakes that causes the plastic to become brittle.

Kurthy sent us links to these images before you did, so we used images from the 3 different links provided, but he sent in a submission first so he got the credit.

I'm really considering if I want a gold Screamer to go with my combiner. I think it would round out the combiner nicely with Dreadwind, Blackwing, and Blastoff.

How much would you be willing to spend on it?

I'm not sure. As is, the price is for $35 USD once converted, so I mean splurging a bit for a golden Starscream for a Starscream combiner ain't that bad. And even if I don't, I have a flea market Dragstrip minus accessories and a wheel to take the 4th limb place. But a golden Starscream would be awesome

Once again via fellow Seibertronian kurthy, we have an update on the Takara Tomy exclusive Golden Lagoon figures - featuring Optimus Prime, Perceptor, Sea Spray and Beachcomber - and specifically their ordering dates for the set, which is also being released for the 35th Anniversary of the brand.

We previously knew that these figures were set to come out over the course of 4 months, with Optimus coming in August at Wonderfest for 15,000 yen, Unite Warriors Starscream in October through TakaraTomy Mall for 3,800 yen, and Perceptor, Beachcomber, and Seaspray in November also through TakaraTomy Mall for 8,000 yen. What the recent Takara Tomy tweet points out is that:

[quote]The 35th anniversary of the Golden Lagoon Mall Limited Edition 3-body set is available on the 2nd day of the week until 13:00!
The quantity and the reservation period remain low.
Because it is a set of three main characters that appeared in the spring of the Golden Lagoon, you do not miss buying! Booking ↓â†[/quote]

It is unclear at this point if they're only referring to a set inclusive of all three, and whether this negates the previous staggered release info we covered. If you find out any more details, please let the news staff know!

I’m no Japanese expert, but I assume their reference to the “3-body set” is just the Seaspray / Perceptor / Beachcomber three-pack? Sounds like they’re just extending the pre-order period for that particular set.

Starscream pre-orders don’t go up until the end of July, and Prime is a con exclusive.

So, how much are we expecting Starscream to be for us Western World consumers? He's the only one I want (to repurpose as Sunstorm).

If there's an Asia release then probably $40, if not then maybe more like $50-$60 since they can't get them wholesale. He's the only one I want as well so I'm hoping for the $40 mark.
