A member posted some pics from Robot Kingdom of the new TFP stuff. Gaia Unicron and Darkness Megatron. From the pics, Megs looks like a Voyager. Also some PCC combiners, not sure who since I don't collect those.

Edit: I've had my coffee now and got a better look at Megs. ^^ Changed info to voyager.

Ah, turns out the "Jetmaster," "Rollermaster", "Chopmaster" and "Combatmaster" listings we saw a day or two ago are for the PCCs.

Oh, so they're releasing the PCC's in their original colors? Shame, I was wondering if they'd mix things up a bit.

Would like better pictures of Gaia Unicron. Darkness Megatron seems to be Voyager Megs with a bat-backpack?

Knew it was gonna be the PCCs, but, yeah, hoped for some interesting new colors/characters out of them. icon-screamer.gif

Megatron is really confusing. I thought it was the deluxe, that's what the ship looks like. But it seems like he has the shoulder pad armor like Voyager does. Plus those added bat wings. It's the ship mode that really throwing me off. That looks like the deluxe from that angle.

And since you called it a bat-backpack, now I suddenly want this fig. >_>

I wouldn't give up hope yet that these won't be redecoed. These types of pictures from magazines often just show the Hasbro versions (the same thing was true for much of Henkei! Henkei! when they were solicited in this type of mag).

They're just the Hasbro stock photos.

Well that's better.

Looks like they went for unifying color schemes for the drone teams.

The results for Combatmaster/Bombshock look pretty boring. Pass

I kinda like Jetmaster's colors though. Blue and white is pretty. (So close to the Jetfire colors I wanted to see, but just missing. Ah well.) His singular small robot form is quite nice.

Can't really imagine what they were thinking for the Icepick repaint. Weird busy clashy colors. But they look good on the alt. Form.

Searchlight/Choppermaster looks ok. Going seafoam for a rescue copter makes sense, and works but isn't quite different enough to really interest me.


-ZacWilliam, I'd buy the Skyburst set at US prices, but not at what it would cost to import...

Did I not tell you that those other images were nothing to go off of?

The color schemes are definitely a lot more unified among the 5 pack guys. I think everyone is an improvement (or in Bombshock's case, about the same) except for Icepick. His colors are weird, but I do like the detailing.

Okay, just choked when I saw the price listing for the 5-packs. Nearly $63 per 5-pack, and that's with the Amazon.co.jp discount.

I love me some PCCs, but... not those mold-sets, I don't think. Not again, again.

I like the colors shown at the Amazon link. Not enough to shell out for these of course. I got most of my PCCs for $10 a set or less.

The batpack is pretty definitely a MiniCon, right? So that's interesting.

The colors look good, but man, those prices suck. (And people were complaining about US prices!) I think these will be about as successful in Japan as they were in the US.....

Might talk myself into the Chopperoller set, if only so I can combine Roller Master and Icepick Energon-style. Not a fan of how the five-packs look like this.

Oh, heyyyy now, those versus-pack PCC colors are neat. I especially like that shade of green, and the gold with the dark blue-purple... they're priced way out of my range, though.
