I know Blast Off is the more iconic and beloved character out of the two, but you have to feel sorry for Primal not being spotted by whoever scanned the mag when it looks as if he was on the other half of the same double page spread....








(I know, they probably did spot and are only releasing this "Hot on the heels" rather than at the same time for site traffic reasons. Blast Off isn't really iconic either)

It'll be a nice get for anyone who doesn't already have one of those Primals, but for me it seems like more of a step sideways than forward.

Which isn't to say I won't buy it, because I'm a sucker for Beast Wars stuff and I'd definitely be interested if the price is right. But it's certainly not the "essential" version of the character the way some of the G1 MPs are, just because the existing stuff is already so good.

Beast mode legs look to have had a better job done on them. PLUS HE HAS LIGHT UP ROBOT MODE EYES AND HIS BEAST MOUTH OPENS WARCRY HOW CAN YOU NOT WANT TO BUY THIS.

Firmly in the "I'm fine with what I've got already, but I'll see what the final product looks like" camp.

I already have 4 out of the 5 Combaticons for CW. I guess if I skip Onslaught they can continue to be the limbs for another torso and order the UW one.

Big fan of Takara ditching that horrible yellow from Vortex's missiles.

Not entirely convinced about the blue they've gone with instead, but small mercies innit.

New photos of MP Primal and UW Bruticus from Wonderfest 2016

Primal's looking nice and stuff, but I'm not sure about those elbows.

That Primal looks like a love letter for 9-10 year old me. Ultra Primal was one of my favourite toys back then [strange how he was just flat out superior to Ultra Megatron], this one looks to be so show accurate it looks like a screenshot from certain angles!

Rumoured to be 19cm tall so he's a good height as well. Can't really tell what the tab on his left forearm is for though.

Estimating 14-15k yen as a retail. Will probably be less.

Kind of unsightly, yeah. It's one of the things that most needed improvement on the original toy, but unfortunately the CGI model followed the toy in that regard.

Same here. The new toy looks like it'd look better on a shelf, but I don't think it's edging the original on anything else, and the original has a ton of accessories and wacky play features to its credit.

Clear colour pics of Unite Warriors Bruticus.
http://news.tfw2005.com/2016/02/09/n...ruticus-309274

They've made the feet the same colour as Brawl and Swindle, as per the animation model. That's awesome.

Shame the feet are still the terrible CW ones, but hey.

I may go ahead and spring for the UW Bruticus as well now, even though I've already got the Hasbro limbs, do some mix and match, and re-purpose the other guys. I'm not a huge fan of Brawl's "I"m SO ANGRY" face, but it's not like you can see it when he's a leg anyhow.

Other then that, looks good. I'm -really- digging that Swindle and that Blast-Off. Up until now the decos haven't been the deciding factor, and I wasn't too bothered by Blast-Off being a jet but that's a pretty decent looking CW style shuttle they have there, and with that Swindle, yea I may go ahead and get this set.

ha, no. I've got the G1 version. And G2 one. And the three uses the mould got around the time of RiD. That's probably more Combaticons than anyone needs.
