Also via fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath is Takara Tomy designer Shogo Hasui's support for the recently revealed Megatronia set in the Unite Warriors EX line, the Japanese take on Victorion. While the original designs were based on work by Marcelo Matere and Emiliano Santalucia, we see here Hasui's vision for the head of the combiner mode, eventually used on the toy by both Hasbro and Takara. Check it out!

And in even more Takara Tomy Unite Warriors news, we have via TFYuki a full picture of the Japanese release of the Technobot combiner UW-08(Computicon) Computron - which features very different and substantial changes to the Hasbro version - and of its box art. Check it out below!

I'm still waiting for Amazon to ship mine. They said it would be delivered between the 25th and the 30th of August, I think. I haven't been charged yet and I think I remember Amazon apologising for the delay?

Since the "Girls" already look quite G2 it would have been fun if they'd had tail fin or hood tampos showing off their powers or their card themed suit in their name Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs & Spades. With Mrs. Megatron being the "Queen" perhaps with all 4 suits on her like Optimus used to have multiple cyber planet key logos tampographed on him.

Thats because the exchange rate changed too. It was always around the 4500 yen mark for UW sets but sicne the last combiner release, the yen has caught up to the US$ and is now on par. So whil the shipping might have increased a tiny bit (only 500 yen), the fact that its added to the on par exchang makes it look super steep.

Also, I didnt get my notification from anime export yet, should be soon if you got it from amiami. Cant wait to ship both him and blurr.

Thanks! I read it and immediately thought of it, I assume DeadCaL was kinda referencing that as well :lol: :lol:

Back to Megatronia for a bit, I think its a good case of Takara being different from hasbro and not better. Hasbro's deco is pretty good and highlights just as much detail if not more (plus you get Dust Up and dont need to import if you are in the west).

I will admit though that Megaempress looks sublime,but thats because she goes against the highlighter with black blotches theme of the rest.

Personally, I never liked the grated detail on that mold's thighs, as it looks really tacky to me. Takara's decos coloring the grating in one solid color, the same color as the surrounding areas on thighs, doing their best to hide that obnoxious detail was always preferable to me.

Ok, that Megatronia set needs a Flamewar repaint of Legends Groove to finish it off

The guy who did the alternative translations (alternative to those Memphis did) for the Woman Destron bios made a corrected version of Megaempress's bio:
Megaempress was created from spare parts from Megatron's construction in Cybertron's underground; once Megatron's equal, Megaempress formed and ruled over the Woman Destrons. But Laserwave, fearing her presence, stopped her functions and put her to sleep underground. She is the self-proclaimed wife of the Emperor of Destruction and Empress of the Destrons. She is always accompanied by her body guards, who she has christened the 4 Guards and who possess specific abilities. The rail fusion cannon on her back has a destructive power comparable to Megatron's fusion cannon; using the "Judge Pickel" weapon, she can smash everything. She has a noble and greedy personality. She transforms into a destructive fire engine.

"Pickel" is a German word for "Pick-axe", and the term Japan uses to refer to the tool.

Yeah it really is. Another part of the deco I love is the black hands and feet. Adds a nice unity to the whole combiner. The silver ones on Victorion stand out in comparison.

From the victorion figure? Probably never, TT isn't known to release multiple repaints of a figure, adn they just released a really nice and accurate one a year ago...
