Toy News: New photos of "Unite Warriors" Scattershot

Ever since "Combiner Wars" Scattershot was released months ago, Transformers fans have speculated about Takara Tomy releasing a more extensive retool of the Silverbolt sculpt in Japan. Now fans finally have a clear look at Scattershot and just what has been changed thanks to TF Yuki! While the vehicle mode is pretty much the same, the robot mode photo reveals several changes including two blasters (instead of Silverbolt's) and new chest panels for Scattershot himself! For many, this is the Scattershot they've been waiting for.

Toy News: Close up view of "Unite Warriors" Computron head sculpt

in Autobot, Combiner Wars, Generation One, News, Technobots, Unite Warriors

You can always count on TF Yuki to provide some "Transformers" eye candy and he has delivered once again. This time out fans get a close up look at Takara Tomy's "Unite Warriors" Computron. This shows a whole new head sculpt instead of the reused Superion head used outside Japan. I think the sculpt looks great and has many of the details you'd expect from Computron including the giant visor eyes and the crest. I can't wait to get this version!

Representing Autobot Drift before he switched sides, this figure is a redeco of "Generations" Drift with the blasters included with Blurr. Thanks to TF Yuki, we now have a new look at this figure alongside Blurr and a hint at the packaging in the background.
