New TakaraTomy Unite Warriors 1984 Combiner Teaser

Our readers may remember that 5 months ago TakaraTomy designer Hisashi Yuki teased their version of Optimus Maximus – the combiner consisting of Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Prowl, Mirage, and Sunstreaker.  Well know Hisashi Yuki has tweeted another teaser for the set, this time with a little bit of the deco showing through the teaser.  With the Combiner Wars version swapping the red and blue Optimus Prime released in Wave 1 for the later white and gold Battle Core Optimus Prime, it seems TakaraTomy will be using the original red and blue deco.  No word yet on which individual robot mode Optimus Prime head the TakaraTomy version will use.  Other changes to the combiner’s deco can be seen in the teaser, such as the color of Prowl’s thighs are no longer black but white or silver.  Also note that the setup of the combiner swaps the arms and legs from Hasbro’s default configuration, homaging the color layout of Grand Convoy / Energon Optimus Prime.  Based on a rough translation of the tweet, it appears the figures will be revealed next month.
