Toy News: Official Takara Tomy Photos of the "Siege" Off-Road Patrol

Unlike many upcoming "Siege" releases such as Omega Supreme, the upcoming Off-Road Patrol has not received a lot of fan fare. There was a reveal at Toy Fair Australia where CG renders of the figures were provided and that is pretty much it. Now thanks to Takara Tomy Mall we have official photos of the actual figures! This set features Powertrain and Highjump, each based on their G1 counterparts. The set is listed at ¥ 1,944 (about $17.91).

Since Toy Fair 2019 Transformers fans have had many photos of Omega Supreme to ogle at. However, many of these photos were partly dark photos from Toy Fair or CG renders. Now, thanks to Takara Tomy Mall we have some clear photos of Omega Supreme and Countdown! The photos not only give us a crisp look at their details, but we also get to see some pretty crazy articulation on Omega Supreme in an "action pose".
