You sure it's Overdrive and not Override?

I think he's still called Runabout (and I called it :DANCE:). Never trust the translation the stores give. I mean, "sublime" is most likely "Supreme" :lol:

Still a nice list, and a confirmation of some sort that Groove remains in Unite Warriors.

That Optimus Prime looks VERY nice. Think Hasbro will release it stateside, or is this another example of Takara Tomy making their own Optimus Prime figure for a line (a la the Transformers: Lost Age line)?

While you might be correct, both sites have him listed as Overdrive:
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TAK12110&mode=retail
http://tfsource.com/transformers-adventure/tav-26-overdrive/

I had to look it up myself... cause he ain't no red car :-?

Right you are. I picked up that typo from TFsource (which they've actually already fixed now, and so have I) ;)^

Dammit Takara, would it kill you to reveal the new deco for the new Warrior Steeljaw figure coming out in June?! That is the picture I am second most eager to see right behind United Warriors Defensor.

I've been dead set against getting into the RID toy line, but I have to admit that Jazz is might tempting.

Also, I love the Blackjack mold; I'm glad we're getting an interesting redeco (at a nice, affordable price to boot!).

Finally, YES. All about the Vehicon General. Maybe this means we'll get a Jet Vehicon re-release sometime in the near future?

No, as he was originally intended to be to boot ;)

That new Optimus is GIGANTIC! Like, the size of God Ginrai or RID Omega Prime or Armada Super Optimus Prime or MP-1 Convoy or MP-22 Ultra Magnus or MP-24 Star Saber! :shock:

He also has a working trailer that can be used for storage. I am forgetting things now, is this a figure we will get from Hasbro, or is this another case of the other Big easy Optimus from AOE we never got?

We've never seen this Optimus before. Whatever company it comes from, it's brand new to us for now. =P~

Yes, but in what form? It's unlikely they'll use this mold since Takara Tomy is going traditional and keeping with the five bot teams. I doubt they'll be making a new groove figure so maybe Rook has a groove head in his mold?

Runabout is a no-brainer, that's who the mold was intended to be in the first place.

What are we getting the groove confirmation from?

Also, Sabr, is that Optimus as big as the giant Hasbro Bumblebee coming out later this year? Does he beat DOTM's supposedly Tallest Optimus figure?

Legends Groove released as a different character (and probably a new deco). Had Groove not been in Unite Warriors TakaraTomy could have released that mold as is, as Groove.

No. That Bumblebee is, IIRC, 2 feet tall. This Optimus is 30cm tall, about 1/2 the size of Super Bee.

So that Optimus is a new mold and not the redeco/retool of the 3-steper we saw at toy fair? Also is it me or does that Vehicon look like the one from Prime but with something different done for its gun? I see a peg coming out of its arm.

Looks like a new mold. Judging from the pic he'll be a foot tall, and feature sounds.

Also is it me or does that Vehicon look like the one from Prime but with something different done for its gun? I see a peg coming out of its arm.


Nope, that's perfectly possible with the regular Vehicon. The gun has two small clamps on the bottom so it can attach to the either the sides of the hood (above the wheel covers), or on his forearms. And yes, the 5mm post is actually on the side of the gun, not the bottom :)

I wish I'd known about Runabout ~2 weeks ago. I would have foregone Blackjack for that. Oh well, Blackjack's not awful or anything.

I forgot about that. I'm still on the fence about the figure.

That Prime is incredibly interesting, I'm already opening my wallet, but I hope it'll be domestic as well so I don't have to squeeze out more money for import prices...
