Takara Tomy's TFYuki has taken to Twitter again, this time to share an image of the finished product of their Unite Warriors (Hasbro's Combiner Wars) Superion in combined form, posed and ready for action!

This beautiful, and G1 accurate version of the Combiner Wars Aerialbot molds has been a highly anticipated release and images like these don't make the wait any easier! Unite Warriors Superion will be released in just about 2 weeks from now, so the wait's almost over. Until then, check out our galleries of the Combiner Wars originals!

As individuals, Hasbro's bots win. Combined Takara wins. Tough call.

It depends what we will display them in. I planned on displaying them in combined mode so getting choosing the takara version over hasbro was a no brainer. Also, I really like Takara's painted shoulders on silverbolt. I really dislike how the extensive sculpting in that area is devoid of paint in the hasbro version, it's obviously lacking something.

Hahaha, what a cruel teaser pic. It hides everything that we want to see. It also looks like a newspaper clipping reprinted from microfiche at the local library. Well play Takara, well played. jerks

Exactly, my friend! Soon I'll know which version of Devastator I'll be investing in. Even though I'll still have to wait a while to get ANY of the upcoming releases, at least I'll have the peace of mind knowing what the goal is, in terms of time and money, to get this awesome beast in my collection. :)

Spanbauer wrote:Really, really, really hope that teaser picture isn't actually Takara Tomy's Devastator, because if it is it'll have more in common with the Hasbro retail version than the SDCC version (obviously the photo is very silhouetted, but you can tell there are no additional decals on Scavenger's vehicle mode, no purple waist on Devastator, no black treads on Bonecrusher, no extra decal on Devastator's waist). So hopefully they just grabbed a photo of the Hasbro retail version for this silhouette teaser and this isn't actually their version.


On the other paw, if that IS a photoshop of the legit Takara version, looks like the shades are IN for their release. That makes me quite happy. :)

From TF YUKI's Twitter: Image

So, we've got G1-style guns for the whole crew, which is awesome. This is also our first look at the shades of green and purple Takara Tomy are using, and both look perfect in my book.

Regarding differences, Hook has silver on the front of his legs and a purple ankle joint. Bonecrusher actually has LESS paint apps, missing the silver on his arms and just leaving them green. Can't tell if Mixmaster has the painted headlights like the SDCC version; doesn't look like it but they're indented so could be the angle.

Bonecrusher's plain arms makes me think they're going with a literal G1 cartoon approach, stripping away paint apps ala Dragstrip instead of finding a balance between the original toy and cartoon.

Seibertronian Spanbauer has shared a TFyuki Tweet with us tonight of Transformers Unite Warriors Devastator, featuring their... GUNS?! Its been observed that Hasbro's Combiner Wars Constructicons don't have individual firearms, so if this means TakaraTomy's green team is packing heat it would definitely set them apart. Remember folks all will be revealed on June 20th at the 2015 Tokyo Toy show, and Seibertron will be ready so stay tuned!

Ooh! Wonder how much Takara's option is gonna be, as the addition of these guns makes it a viable option at this point. On the flipside, I'm likely gonna have this guy combined most of the time, so then again, Hasbro retail might be the way to go for value.

Guess that takes care of this discussion and complaint.

True, veru true. But is it possible they did not include them for fear of being unable to store them well? :BOT:


Yeah they use the combiner pieces as weapons.

I think he means individual rifles, like how the deluxes come with a weapon and the combiner piece


I know, but if they had rifles, where would the combiner pieces go?

if they had individual weapons they would attach somewhere in vehicle mode like the original constructicons but when combined i would say they get put aside. why would there weapons need to go anywhere on devastator? he has a big ass gun!


Well I'll be damned. Thanks Takara and WTH Hasbro!?!?

These guns are a game changer for me, I might just wait for the Takara version. I noticed a peg on one of them which might be for weapon storage or the weapons combine.

And the Takara version of Devastator takes the lead, still (largely) sight unseen!

Not to take away from Devy chat, but what are your thoughts on Hasbro Superion vs the soon-to-release TT UW-01 version? Aside from the combiner differences, which isn't a big deal as the Hasbro ones are available individually, with us only a week away from release, have we gotten a full list of the differences the TT version will have?

Hasbro's Superion is pretty great. I like Alpha Bravo, but as a limb I feel the propeller takes away from the overall look. I recently acquired Quickslinger, and he looks FANTASTIC but his snow white really clashes with Silverbolts off-white. I'm really clamoring for UW Superion =P~

Scrapper isn't going to have elbows. The size and weight of Devastator makes this impossible with his arms being the "heel" support of the right leg in combined mode.

Yeah, I notice that in every video review I watch. Glad I'm not alone. :lol:

Do you think the TT version will match the paints on those two since they come as a set?

G1 Superion doesn't match either. Silverbolt is off white and Slingshot is regular white.
